Great Neck, NY and Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) May 28, 2008
Dozens of moms across the country logged a collective 5,095.8 miles in the Nation's first "Love the Challenge" stroller-fitness event. Co-sponsored by Strollometer® - the world's first speedometer/odometer for strollers, and Baby Boot Camp® - the nation's premier stroller-fitness program, the 4-week event challenged moms to achieve their post-pregnancy weight loss goals. On average, participants during the event lost an average of 4 pounds and 5.6 inches.
"We salute the commitment and enthusiasm of all the Love the Challenge participants," said Adi Weber, President and Co-founder, Strollometer. "This event demonstrates that the combination of the Strollometer technology, the Baby Boot Camp exercise regimen and a little determination, can get new moms back in just a few weeks. And what's more, the routine encourages moms to bond with their newborn babies while losing weight and getting in shape."
''Moms posted success stories across the country,'' said Kristen Horler, CEO and Founder, Baby Boot Camp. "One Mom from Eugene, OR went from a size 16 to a size 12, a loss of 13 inches. And Moms in Winter Park, FL lost 6.75 inches each. Strollometer is Baby Boot Camp's partner not only for this event, but also as the preferred vendor in our national network of franchises. With this partnership, we're not only helping moms realize real weight-loss success, but we're also giving them a way to document and build upon their progress."
The Strollometer is a mom-invented eight function wireless speedometer/odometer designed to strap onto any baby stroller. Functions include current, average and maximum speed (mph/kmh), trip and daily distance, trip and real clock times, and ambient temperature (F/C).
Since its introduction in September 2006, The Strollometer has won numerous awards, including the prestigious 2006 JPMA Innovation Award and an iParenting Media Award. It has also received press raves from the New York Times, Shape Magazine, Parenting, Parents, Cookie, and American Baby among others.
