Getting back into a workout routine can be difficult after having kids.  And, it makes it harder if child care is an issue.  If your partner or babysitter is not available to watch the kiddos, then working out becomes less of a priority. But, we all know that working out makes for a healthy and happy mama.  So, before you sign up for a gym membership, check out all the fitness centers below that offer child care.  What a breeze!  Bring the kiddos to the gym, drop off at child care and get your sweat on for an hour or so!
