The Los Feliz Exercising Mommys



I see them several times a week, as I cruise west down Los Feliz Blvd. on the way to work: Young mothers, decked out in sweat gear, exercising in Griffith Park (or on the pathway down the boulevard) while their kids sit in their strollers.

Who are these moms? Is this a clique of friends who all own racing strollers and have learned to exercise in unison? How do they plan out these workouts, which frequently utilize wooden fences, steps and other features along the pathway?

Typing "Los Feliz," "moms" and "exercise" into Google, I think I may have found the answer: StollerStrides.

Apparently the group (which costs anywhere from $15 to $12.50 to less per class, depending on how much you prepay) meets at the bear statue near one of the Griffith Park entrances at 9;30 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

This could very well be them. The time fits with when I pass by that part of Griffith Park... and that hefty price would explain why the women who participate appear very upper class. Have any of you taken this class, or at the very least have seen the Exercising Mommys of Los Feliz?
