I received a Phil & Teds Sport Stroller in exchange for my honest review. As always all opinions are my own.
In March I posted about my Phil & Teds Sport stroller and how I was using it with Layla for brisk walking and light jogging while pregnant. One of the awesome things about this stroller is that it is designed to be an in-line stroller for two kids and has a ton of configuration options. Now that I am about 8 weeks postpartum with my little man I have been able to utilize a lot more of the options that this stroller has…here are the 4 options I have used the most as I get back to fitness with two kids.
One seat light jogging stroller – With it’s lock-in-place front wheel the Sport stroller works great for a single jogger. I can just pop Layla in and away we go. This is not a true running stroller, but for our build back into it runs/walks it works perfectly. I don’t have one yet, but you can add on a cup and snack holder for both the adult and child which is great for longer walks and when you need someplace to stash your keys and water bottle.
Carseat adapter – I call this the “toddler independence” option for when Layla wants to ride her skooter, bike or just walk I can easily click in a carseat adapter and my Graco Click Connect carseat locks into place for Barrett. This is great for children who aren’t big enough yet for the regular seat and you can look down on your sweet little one’s face while you walk or jog. The handlebar break release has come in very handy when I need to quickly stop the stroller and redirect Layla. (Aka keep her from running into the street or someone’s yard.)
Double seat in front + baby flat behind – This is a great combo for walking with a baby and toddler. Layla has the double kit on the front clipped in with the 5 point harness and Barrett is tucked into the regular seat which with a couple zips and clips lays completely flat. I’ve had so many people comment on how clever this setup is! I angle Barrett’s head nearest my legs and while things are a little tight down by his legs he seems to like it just fine and I don’t struggle with my stride at all. It’s also great to have a spot where Layla can see out and enjoy our walks, but is still completely strapped in and contained.
Double seat in rear – This will most likely be our sweet spot when Barrett is a bit bigger and more stable with his head and neck. The double seat clicks in behind and below the regular seat. This is a great option for two kids closer in age and definitely why I was interested in this stroller to begin with…two kids with the all terrain tires and jogging capability but without the bulk of a double-wide stroller.
All together the Phil & Teds Sport Stroller offers 26 riding options and comes in an array of bright and peppy colors. I love all the options for walking and jogging as I get back into my regular workout routine postpartum. I’m trying to get at least 8,000 steps a day (10,000 is awesome!) to help me burn extra calories and having a versatile stroller is a huge part of that. It is great to have OPTIONS when it comes to moving more with my little ones!
You can order the Phil and Teds Sport Stroller on Amazon too! Got to love the convenience!
