BOB Stroller Strides Single Fitness Stroller, Red

Give yourself a total body workout with the official stroller of the Stroller Strides nationwide fitness program.

The Stroller Strides Fitness Stroller is available in single or duallie seating and is based off of the BOB Revolution model, but with a few extras such as: fitness pack that includes two exercise tubes of different tensions, drink holder, and fitness manual to help stick to the Stroller Strides Fitness Program.


Features of the BOB Stroller Strides Single Fitness Stroller

BOB is known for making a well built stroller and the Strides Fitness Stroller is no exception. With an aluminum alloy welded frame, this baby is built to last a long time. One user boasts of buying this stroller when her son was a newborn, and is still pushing him in it 6 years later! I guess with a 70 lbs weight limit that’s not a problem. She now has plans to pass it on to her nephew since it’s still going like a champ.

Customer Reviews of the BOB Stroller Strides Single Fitness Stroller


The BOB Stroller Strides Fitness consumers report in stroller reviews that they are excited about having made this purchase! This is a must have stroller for the athletic enthusiast, from the reviews you can see 60 customers in which it scored an impressive 4.6 stars out of 5. Review after review gushed over the smooth ride for baby. That’s due in part to the large 16” rear tires and modern suspension system which can be adjusted to one of two positions depending on the size of the child.

An Amazon reviewer states:

“I love the fact that we can take it anywhere, we even take it on trails, over rocks and tree roots. The big wheels and suspension are amazing. We love Bob and call him by name!”

Users like the option of locking the front wheel, or allowing it to swivel for maneuverability.

Although not many, there are a few drawbacks to this bad boy. The storage basket underneath is on the smaller side, and some users had a hard time fitting even a small diaper bag underneath. The other downside is the price. With an MSRP of $399 it’s at the higher end of the Jogger pricing scale. Most users agree that although the price is high, with the stroller’s ability to handle trails, snow, rough sidewalks, or a crowd with ease, it is definitely worth it.

An Amazon reviewer said:

Over all is this stroller worth the price? YES without a doubt, you will not be disappointed, this will easily last through many children and will provide a great comfortable safe ride for your child.

They absolutely love it. I can’t imagine being so excited about owning a stroller, but let me tell you they can’t seem to say enough good things about this model. Easy to maneuver and accommodating not just 2 but 4 kids at a time and even a dog in one case that seated nicely on the footrest to go for a ride. Many say this stroller looks like it maybe wide but getting through most isle’s and doorways is a breeze with side by side seating.

Some users say this is light and some say it’s heavy. I guess it’s just a matter of opinion. One thing is for sure is that stroller reviews all agree the Bob Stroller Strides Red Duallie is built to last years and years and is worth every penny they spent. With a great cup holder for your morning coffee and a good size compartment for your essentials you’ll have them all within reach. The storage basket is a tad small and is a bit difficult at times to get things in and out of but jogging or walking this stroller will fit your needs.
