When you’re a parent, it isn’t always easy to balance taking care of your children and taking care of yourself. Maintaining a fitness routine is difficult when you can’t find someone to babysit and hiring a professional can get expensive pretty quickly. Luckily, there are several gyms in the Omaha area that offer childcare!
Most of these fitness centers offer free childcare with a membership and some will even watch your kiddo when you aren’t working out! You can rest easy knowing your child is having a blast (and staying safe) while you put in a little “me-time”.
