Stroller Strong Moms Fairbanks is an effective, fun workout that challenges our athletes to become stronger and faster, and set positive examples for their children.

We meet five times a week in various locations throughout the city, and have facilities for both warm weather and cold weather, which allows us to workout year-round! Join the northernmost Stroller Strong Moms community and come Sweat Like a Mother, or SLAM, with our group today! Your first class is always free!

We SLAM in Any Weather!

The interior of Alaska can have every extreme of climate available in the northern frontier, but our group at Stroller Strong Moms Fairbanks enjoys every last drop of sunshine and every snowflake just the same. We are proud to have a variety of locations available that keep us sweating in the summer, and warm in the winters.

Stroller Strong Moms Fairbanks meets five times a week at:

  • Pioneer Park
    • Located along the Chena River, this park is easily accessible and rich in historical landmarks, playgrounds, carousel, and picnic areas, all of which are utilized during and after class.
  • Griffin Park
    • Located in the heart of the downtown area near Dog Musher’s Monument and the Chena River, Griffin Park offers beautiful footpaths, open fields, and breathtaking views of the river and mountains.
  • Radiant Church
    • During the winter months when the temperature drops below freezing, we meet at the downtown Radiant Church. The location is easily accessible, open, and warm! We meet Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at the church.
  • Boys and Girls Club Fairbanks
    • When the snow begins to fall the Boys and Girls Club Fairbanks provides us with a warm and spacious place to SLAM! We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at Boys and Girls Club!

“Stroller Strong Moms has been life-changing for me.  I really don’t think I ever would have started exercising again if I hadn’t found it.  Last year during the Get Fit Challenge, and the month following, I lost 15 pounds.  I have kept that weight off this year, and now along with class 4 days a week, I am also training for my first half marathon in April.  That is something I NEVER thought I would do.  I am so thankful for all the delightful people I have met through SSM and I know that even when the Army moves us again, I will always find a way to stay fit thanks to all I have learned through SSM.”
