Ever since I found out I was pregnant with my first child I've wanted a quality jogging stroller. Before finding out I was pregnant, I started running with a group of co-workers. I would run about 12 miles a week, up to 6 miles each run, in an effort to lose weight and stay in shape. When I found out I was pregnant I stopped running as much and eventually stopped all together.
I assumed that if I got a jogging stroller I'd be able to pick right back up and start running again. But life got in the way, I didn't purchase a jogging stroller, and the strollers I borrowed from neighbors and family just didn't make the cut.
So here it is,4 years later, and I finally have my jogging stroller, the Joovy Zoom 360. And boy was it worth the wait!!
As soon as it arrived in the mail, I opened it and had it assembled in less than 15 minutes. Then my daughter and I started playing with it. We've had a lot of fun testing it out!
What I love about this jogger is that I didn't have to purchase any optional accessories.
What the Joovy Zoom Includes:
- Parent Organizer - Includes a neoprene parent organizer that holds 2 cups and has a zippered storage container.
- Rain/Wind Cover
- Wheel Pump
- 5 Point Harness
- Safety Tether
- Shock absorbing suspension
The first thing I noticed about the Joovy Zoom after assembling it is the large canopy. None of my previous strollers have the coverage that this stroller does. Not only does it completely shade my daughter and son when they're in full sun, it's also adjustable to fit perfectly with any situation.
The Zoom also comes with a rain cover that easily covers your child from the weather and keeps them nice and dry as you enjoy your workout. That means no excuses!
Easy Fold & Compact Storage
The Zoom is also very easy to fold. With the simple push and lift of two items, the Zoom folds compactly and securely together with the help of a latch. The Zoom fits perfectly in the trunk of my small compact car and our family station wagon.
The Zoom is also very light weight. It's very easy to lift up into the trunk of my car and to carry from one place to another when storing it.
Swivel WheelThis stroller is built for running, walking, and everything in between.
For serious runners, the front wheel has an option to lock the swivel wheel in a straight position. It's lightweight, steers easily with one hand, and includes a safety strap to wear while exercising. While walking around and more casual jogs, I'm able to unlock the straight wheel and use the swivel wheel for even easier mobility.
The RideAs I'm running, I don't want to struggle with steering a stroller. The Zoom simply glides where I push it. I steer with one hand and hardly feel any resistance when I'm on the go. I can run at my own pace, change up speeds, and switch from one terrain to another without affecting the performance of the stroller.
When my daughter falls asleep on on walks and runs I can easily adjust the seat by pulling on the straps in the back. There isn't just one or two positions, I can recline the seat back as far as I'd like until I reach the fully reclined position. This is perfect for when I know my daughter is sleepy but she refuses to lay back when the seat is in the reclined position. I just recline it a bit so she doesn't even realize she's reclined a bit. Then 5 minutes into our jog, she's passed out!
Optional Infant Car Seat Adapter
Joovy offers 3 optional car seat adapters for the Zoom 360:
- Peg Perego
|Her baby fits perfectly in the snack/cup holder|
If you're looking for a stroller that will not only create a comfortable ride for your child as you exercise, but also act as your go to stroller for any occasion, the Joovy Zoom 360 is for you! We take ours everywhere! From the beach to the zoo to the amusement park, I've found the perfect stroller in the Joovy Zoom. And I have no excuses when it comes to exercising!
Since my Joovy Zoom arrived in the mail I've used it 5 out of 7 days in the week. And I now run 3 days a week! I know that this stroller will be key in keeping me on track and making my way towards my goal weight.
