It was the answer to the prayers of all the active parents out there who wanted to stay fit but also couldn’t leave their little one home and had to take him along. Here are a few tips on how to choose the best jogging stroller.

Stability is of course a most needed feature of a normal baby stores in Melbourne let alone a jogging stroller.

Hence, nowadays jogging strollers come with three big wheels where you can lift up the front wheel carefully and turn the stroller from the two rear wheels. This mechanism is similar to a wheel-barrow. Too much stability for a jogging stroller may not be as good as for a walking stroller since it becomes harder to handle. Hence you should first analyze for what exactly are you purchasing a stroller and if it is for running more than walking, then buy a jogging stroller.

2.    Front wheel

4.    Hand brake
People thought the hand brake was just another fancy addition to the stroller so that the prices could be put up. However, when jogging down a hill, they realized that it is not such a fancy item, instead it is very useful. When running downhill, it can be risky to push a stroller around and hence you most probably stop jogging and take a careful walk to act as the brake. But now, with the hand brake you can easily have a jog without any worries.
