Stroll in Style with the City Mini GT from Baby Jogger #HGG15

Getting back into shape after having a baby is hard work. Our newest arrival is already 6 months old and I am nowhere near where I should be with my weight-loss progress. After she was born, I lost the weight immediately but doing nothing but snuggling took its toll and before I knew it, my weight had crept right back up. Many Moms face this same dilemma every single day. I talked to a mom a couple of weeks ago and she was telling me about her struggle with "baby weight" and her youngest was 18 months old. The struggle is REAL! 

Walking, along with a healthy diet, is one of the easiest ways that I have found to lose weight fast. Walking has so many health benefits to both you and your baby and aside from a good stroller and a pair of tennis shoes, it's expensive gym membership is needed. Around my parts, I am known as the "baby gear queen" with a specialty in strollers so when my friends and family come to me and ask me for recommendations, I love to be able to suggest products that will help them accomplish their goals. Most recently, we were sent the City Mini GT from Baby Jogger and to say we were impressed is an understatement. 

First of all, when I open any big box and there isn't a bag of parts, I do a dance because this means minimal assembly. When I opened the City Mini GT, I was greeted with a fully assembled frame and all that was left to assemble was the wheels and the canopy. They say you never have a second chance to make a first impression and my first impression of this stroller was extremely positive. Like any Mom with a new toy, I didn't want to waste any time with assembly, I wanted to play. Within 5 minutes, probably even less than that, we were ready to go! 

Oh how I wish I could invite you all into my driveway to take the City Mini GT for a spin. Since I can't, I can only recommend that you run to your nearest retailer and pick one up for yourself. Aside from the all-terrain wheels that will take you wherever your feet want to go, including the rougher roads less traveled, the City Mini GT has the features that parents today want and need. I am really impressed with the hand-operated parking brake and adjustable handlebar that adjusts to each parents height. It's small touches like these that make this stroller unique and a must have. But we are just getting started. My single favorite feature of this stroller is THE FOLD! I can't tell you how many strollers I have returned to the store because they were a nightmare to fold. I am a Mom of 5 and I am always on the go and almost always in a rush so I do not have time to wrestle with a complicated stroller that won't fold up. With a pull of a handle, it folds flat instantly. 

Moving on, next up is the comfy seat the reclines to a nearly flat position. Your sweetie is safe inside under the 50+ UV sun canopy and retractable weather cover. Additional accessories that can be purchased separately include a car seat adapter, parent console, child tray and weather shield. I love that these are offered separately so you can purchase only the accessories you are actually going to use. The weather shield is perfect to have on hand if you get caught out in the weather. Our boys play soccer and football and there is nothing worse than being parked far away from the field when inclement weather strikes. The weather shield stashes away nicely in the basket underneath so it's readily accessible if we should ever need it. I personally think the parent console is a must have accessory as well. I always have a drink that needs a cup holder and having a place to stash keys, cell phones and small amounts of cash is always nice when we are out and about. Right now since Addy is 6 months old, the child tray isn't a necessity but it will be nice to have when she is a little bit bigger! I checked out the Baby Jogger website to see if they had any other accessories that I might like to have and I definitely have my eye on a pram now! 

A high quality stroller is a must have for every parent and we highly recommend the City Mini GT from Baby Jogger. The fact that you can use it up to 65 pounds (That's just under the size of my 10 year old) means that you are going to get so much life out of this stroller. If you are expecting, this is definitely something you want to have on your registry. Check out to check out the City Mini GT and the rest of their great strollers! I think it's important to note that this stroller is NOT for jogging so if you are looking for a jogging stroller (which is next on our list!!) you will want to check out their line of joggers.

If there is a new Mom on your holiday list this year, we recommend the City Mini GT for sure. It will definitely be one of the best gifts she ever receives. 


One lucky reader is going to win their own City Mini GT!

I rented this model for our week at Disney and it was the best decision ever! So easy to maneuver- my favorite features were the brake lever and where is was located, easy fold-up, and it was very light weight. We were sad to have to leave it!!
