OutdoorBody - The opposite.​

Hi my name is Heidi Jacobs and I created this website OutdoorBody.com

All too often people equate getting fit with joining a gym and getting on a treadmill. At OutdoorBody.com we believe that health, fitness and getting the body you want should be built into your daily life. And the best way to do that is to live an active outdoors lifestyle.

So while this site started out as a simple running site it has evolved into a general outdoor fitness website.

I’m a running enthusiast and a full time mum to Nathan (18 months) and Julie (5).

After I had Nathan I really wanted to get fit again and get back into running. Julie started going to kindergarten so it was a great chance for Nathan and I to get out running in the park.

But of course Nathan was only just starting to walk so I thought jogging would be a little too much to ask of him so I did the next best thing and got myself a jogging stroller!

Since then I started my own jogging stroller group and got together with a group of other mums to stay fit.

This developed into taking on private clients and through that experience I wrote a home study guide for moms looking to get fit through running with jogging strollers called Run With Baby.

This 1st guide was well received and led me to creating a 2nd fitness program centered around helping mom’s to transition to barefoot running. We called it Run With Nature and it’s available to buy from from this very website.

Thanks for visiting my little site and I wish you many happy and healthy runs with your kids. ))
