Carrie Underwood has found her new exercise partner.

While out for a jog — and an impromptu set of pull-ups on the playground — on Thursday, the new mom to 6-month-old son Isaiah Michael proved motherhood hasn’t put a damper on her fitness routine.

“Sometimes you have to work your baby into your workout … but that’s ok because the world is your playground!” Underwood, 32, captioned an Instagram of the mother and son getting their sweat on.

Dressed in a top and bottoms from her Calia by Carrie Underwood line, the “Smoke Break” singer waves to the camera as she runs down the sidewalk pushing her baby boy in his jogging stroller.

Thompson Square’s Keifer and Shawna Are Having a Baby!

08/04/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Thompson Square is going from a duo to a trio!

After 16 years of marriage, husband and wife bandmates Keifer and Shawna Thompson are finally having a baby, they announced via social media Tuesday.

“We’re really, really excited,” Keifer, 39, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We’ve been together for a long time and we’ve done a lot of things, and we just really felt there was something missing. We love what we do, we love the music business, but we didn’t want to deprive ourselves of having a family.”

And the pair, who are expecting their first child in January, are already thinking about all the logistics involved with raising a baby on the road.

“We’re going to have to design a whole new bus!” says Keifer. “We’re going to need to turn one of the bunks into a crib, and we’ll need a changing area,” Shawna, 37, says. “It’s going to be interesting.”

Carrie Underwood prepared for the worst while she was pregnant, but baby Isaiah Michael has exceeded all of her expectations.

“I think I honestly expected — it’s gonna sound weird — but I expected the worst,” she tells PEOPLE, fresh off her history-making sweep at Wednesday’s CMT Music Awards. “I’ve never been around babies before, to be honest, but he’s so laid-back!”

The country singer says both she and husband Mike Fisher have been pleasantly surprised by how easily the three and a half months since their son’s birth have gone.

“We’re laid-back parents and he’s a laid-back baby and … it surprised me that it’s a little easier than I thought it was gonna be,” Underwood, 32, says. “I think I just expected, like, screaming, crying baby all the time, and he’s just happy and smiley and gorgeous.”

“Whenever he goes to sleep, I do the things I need to do for myself and make workouts happen when they can.”

The “Good Girl” singer — who will perform her duet “Somethin’ Bad” alongside Miranda Lambert — wowed in a Thomas Wylde dress and Jimmy Choo shoes, paired with Kimberly McDonald jewels and a Deepa Gurnani clutch.

06/05/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Four months after giving birth, Carrie Underwood showed off her fit post-baby body in a photo shoot for her fitness line Calia, and now her trainer is revealing how the new mom got back in shape.

A typical workout session for the singer — who welcomed son Isaiah Michael in February — includes “a warm up and a cool down,” says Erin Oprea, Underwood’s longtime trainer (more of her workout tips can be found here!).

“Sometimes we’ll go for a run with lots of hills, stop at a park to do some pull ups, push ups, step ups and other fun body weight stuff,” she adds.

Oprea also mixes it up for the Grammy winner to “keep it fun and keep shocking the body,” she says. “No two workouts seem to end up the same.”
