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.
TRY US OUT!
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
What happens during a Stroller Strong Moms class?
Workouts are an hour long. Class begins with a five minute warm-up followed by the core of the workout which includes intervals of walking/running and fitness stops that will focus on strength and conditioning exercises. From one fitness stop to the next, moms will be led through specific planned out routes depending upon their preference of walking or running. The final 10-15 minutes of class takes place in the spot where class began, and sometimes moms have the option to take their babies/toddlers out of the stroller to participate with them. This segment of class focuses on core strengthening and stretching. We will especially hone in on the muscles that are weakened during pregnancy and childbirth and used and abused while caring for your children.
What makes Stroller Strong Moms better than a local gym membership?
How do I register for class?
Your first class is free so you can just show up. Arrive at least 10 minutes before start time. We begin promptly and class will leave the warm-up area. Once you decide that Stroller Strong Moms is right for you, there are a few different payment plans to fit your needs.
