Boutique Fitness Studios in Boston That Offer Childcare

There are a lot of things you have to plan and factor into your new life when you find out you are having a baby. Your “schedule” or idea of having a “schedule” goes out the window a bit. While not everyone enjoys exercise the way I do something I have thought a lot about is how and when am I going to fit a workout in when Jeff goes back to work. I also realize that my early morning workout sessions will be replaced with early morning feeding sessions and most likely sleepless nights.

I fortunately belong to the YMCA which offers free (if you are a member) childcare as young as 6 weeks from the hours of 9-12, which is great!

But once I learned about that it got me wondering what studios in the Boston area offer that luxury because it would be nice to venture to different classes from time to time.

So for my fellow Boston Mom’s and mom’s to be below is a list of all the local studios that offer childcare so you can get your sweat on while your baby is being watched close by!
