Why do you recommend Stroll-Smart attachments?

To anyone who is met with the challenges of keeping their running program consistent while also having to push a toddler around in a baby jogger, I can wholeheartedly recommend the Stroll-Smart attachment. This is one of the most helpful running accessories to come along in years.

Arm swing plays an important role in helping any runner maintain balance and efficiency in their gait. Holding onto the handle of a stroller while running can severely limit the movement of your upper body, which in turn limits the motion of your legs. This creates a lot of fatigue in your arms, shoulders and legs.

As a running coach and a parent, I spent many years trying to figure out how to push my daughter around in her jog-stroller with the least effect on my running form. With the Stroll-Smart, all those problems are solved. Your hands and arms are freed up to swing naturally, and it teaches you to propel and guide the stroller by pushing from your center instead of your arm s… which is exactly how we teach runners in the Chi Running technique.  Although I do not recommend this device on trails, it is the perfect accessory for pushing a jog-stroller on streets or bike paths. It's easy to set up and use and has virtually no learning curve.
