About eight weeks after having my baby, I yearned to get back into my favorite fitness classes. Instead of being able to jump right back in, I discovered that I had a few problems. First, I was terrified to leave my baby home with a sitter, and second, because I was paying for childcare hourly, I found the cost of heading out to a workout class to be kind of ridiculous. Plus, my body had totally changed and I realized that I needed some time to rediscover my strength. That’s when I discovered Miami’s mommy and me workout scene.

Since wellness tends to top many Miamians’ lists of priorities, there are thankfully several great workout options for you and your baby to try in Miami in 2020. 

Body Belly Baby Postnatal Pilates with Baby

Body Belly Baby pilates classes will help you gently re-activate your core and more post-babe. The class is light-hearted, yet challenging.

Hot Mama Bod at State of Kid

At Hot Mama Bod, you’ll improve your strength, breath, posture and internal muscles while also preventing injury during a killer (but safe) workout with Ashley Peeler.

Equinox Kids Club

Do you want to take a class without your babe? Select Equinox locations (Coral Gables, Aventura, Brickell Heights) offer Kids Clubs where children aged 3 months to 7 years can play while you workout for up to two hours for an additional (very reasonable) cost. I left my four-month-old daughter in the Brickell Heights Kids Club while I took Jil Deviscour’s Best Butt Ever, and we both had a great time.

VIVAMA Mama & Me Bootcamp

I teach a mama & me bootcamp at various locations throughout Miami. These classes are a fun fusion of fitness, important information about re-strengthening your inner core, and connection.


Everyone loves Ashlee Cramer’s Zumbini class. It is seriously so much fun. This class is a vibrant mix of song and dance that the babes seem to love. This class is more enrichment for babe than Zumba for mama, but it’s a fun way to move and bond with your babe.

Toddler & Me Ballet

Located at Miami City Ballet, in this class, you and your babe will explore movements and rhythms in a fun and educational atmosphere.
