What Makes Us Stroller Strong Moms?
Bringing Women Together as Moms & as Athletes
Stroller Strong Moms is a unique, fun, and challenging full-body workout, but it is also so much more than just a fitness group. We are a community and we strive to bring together woman as moms and as athletes. We believe in showing our children that your body is the greatest instrument that you will ever own, and that through movement you can build strength. Our classes combine fitness with comradery, and offer an opportunity for woman throughout the country to come together under a common goal of bettering themselves, challenging themselves, and becoming the best version of themselves that they can be.
What to Expect at Class
At Stroller Strong Moms, each of our classes is designed to get you moving, get you sweaty, and make sure that you are having fun while working out. Our classes are all 60 minutes long and offer a variety of movements and sequences that accommodate all levels of fitness.
Our programs involve an instructor-led warmup with a running or walking route, multiple stations throughout the park or specific meetup location, a dedicated core portion of the class, and a cooldown with stretching to close it out. Each movement is broken down by our instructors, and modifications can be made to accommodate each individual in the class, including mamas who are pregnant, newly post-partum moms, and members with injuries or restrictions. Every fitness level is welcome at Stroller Strong Moms!
Bringing a SLAM Community Together
We understand that it takes a village to raise a child, but we also believe that village can be uplifting and motivating to the mom, too. At Stroller Strong Moms, we are all about creating a community of women that come together with the mindset to make themselves stronger, motivate each other, and show their children what it means to Sweat Like a Mother. Our stroller fitness community is one of a kind, and the SLAM community stretches from our own backyards to thousands of miles across the country, with multiple locations throughout the United States.

Alexa Smith created Stroller Strong Moms (SSM) in Columbus, GA in 2011. She had just moved to Columbus for the third time for her husband’s military career, but this time with children in tow. She wanted to stay active and use her passion as a fitness coach, and she knew she could do this with her children. Using her experience as a soccer coach and strength and conditioning coach, Alexa devised plans for a stroller fitness class tailored specifically for moms. When SSM opened in September of 2011, news spread quickly and the program was immediately popular. Moms experienced how motivating it was to workout with other moms who were striving to reach their fitness goals, and they loved being outside with their kids, showing the next generation how important—and FUN—it is to be strong and healthy. Stroller Strong Moms brings women together, not only as moms, but as athletes. It stirs greatness in a mom, woman, a person that she likely didn’t know was there.
SLAM has now spread to multiple cities throughout the US with passionate and empowering owners who have experienced how a community of strong moms can be life changing! For more info on bringing SLAM to your area, contact us here.

Mom's Night Out
Stroller Strong Moms is more than a butt-kicking workout: It’s a community. Every month at each location, you’ll find us spending time together outside of class! We host playdates after class and a night out just for us, and we race together either as teams or individuals–but almost always in some smokin’ hot S.L.A.M. attire. As they say, those who S.L.A.M. together, stay together.
Find extra event info and details under each location’s registration and Facebook pages.

All I gotta say is, man, we need this at every Army post! It’s fun, motivating, realistic, inexpensive, and practical. Thanks for helping get my behind in gear – with baby in tow! Can’t beat the friendships either!!Charlsey
I love, love, LOVE! Stroller Strong Moms! From the very first day, I had NO idea it would impact my life the way it has. Going to class until about a week before I had baby #2 most definitely helped me achieve my goal of having a natural birth the second time around and helped me recover pretty quickly afterwards. I also ran my first 5k and am now addicted. Looking forward to MORE awesome butt-kicking workouts, watching all the babies play and grow, and making new friends all at the same time!Andrea
