Under the Shady Pines

Barbecue Creek Park is centrally located between Sanford, Cameron, Lillington, and various other small towns. The park is directly next to Western Harnett High School and is the location of all area sports and recreation activities. With varying running routes and open fields, it is the perfect place to Sweat Like A Mother – or as we like to call it S.L.A.M. We are not your typical stroller workout class. While we provide total-body workouts 4X each week, we also build a strong community with kid’s playgroups, mom’s nights out, and so much more!

Come check us out – your first class is FREE! Please bring the following if you have them: a stroller, a yoga mat or towel, a set of dumbbells, water, snacks for baby, and a need to S.L.A.M.!

Cameron/Sanford Instructor

Jen Mains | email


Jen has a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a master’s degree in School Administration. She is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and is also CPR/AED certified through ARC. She became a member of Stroller Strong Moms Leavenworth in 2016. After falling in love with the community and program, she went on to become an instructor and then had the opportunity to open SSM Cameron/Sanford. Jen is a military spouse and also spent 14 years in the Army National Guard. Being a military spouse means home is where the Army sends you, so now that she will be living in Sanford, she will have the opportunity to open SSM Cameron/Sanford. She is excited to bring SSM to local mamas in hopes that they will feel the same sense of community and support that she found in her previous SLAM village. Providing them with a SLAM family to workout with, share mommy moments with, and form a village of their own, all while modeling a healthy lifestyle for their kiddos is the ultimate goal for Jen and SLAM Cameron/Sanford. Jen’s favorite ways to SLAM are high intensity workouts, plyometrics, and a group runs, although exercising in general is what she finds as therapeutic. Long distance solo running is a way that she rejuvenates herself.

“Jen is incredible! SLAM is incredible! The combo = an explosion of joy and sweat She will rock your socks and put a smile on your face. Her workouts are tough but performed with FUN. You will not regret meeting her and working out with her. She will POSITIVELY enhance your life!”

“Jen is the epitome of strength in every sense of the word. At SLAM Leavenworth she was a consistent force with the most positive energy. Not only is she physically strong (five babies later)….her heart is so giving! An amazing instructor with fun, constructive and challenging workouts!”

Beth S.

“Jen is simply the best! Not only can she push her double stroller with extra kids hanging off of it faster than most mommas can push one kiddo around, but she can do it while making you want to run faster with her! She is a non-stop motivator, and her workouts are clearly designed by someone in education – they are fun, easy to understand, and time flies by even though you are sweating like crazy!”
