Stroller Strong Moms Durham

Sweat Like a Mother in the Bull City!

Durham is the Bull City and the perfect place for mamas to Sweat Like a Mother, or as we like to say: S.L.A.M.! Stroller Strong Moms Durham is a stroller fitness class that meets three times a week at Northgate Park, allowing us to get a full-body workout. Led by our ACE certified instructor, we use strollers, weights, resistance bands, and yoga mats to create classes that motivate and move you at multiple fitness levels.

Empowering Moms Through Fitness

Our classes are created to inspire each other with family-friendly workouts. As mamas we support each other in pursuit of our fitness goals involving our children in all aspects of class and setting the example for lifelong fitness. Mamas of all ability and fitness levels work together to build strength and increase confidence to meet and exceed our fitness goals.

Durham Instructor

Kristen Buchanan | email

Owner | Instructor

Kristen is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and CPR/First Aid certified. She has a Master in Education from Auburn University and a Bachelor in Science from the University of Oregon, where she was a Division I Women’s Lacrosse player. After moving to Savannah, Georgia in 2016, newly pregnant with baby number two and an active young toddler, Kristen became a member of Stroller Strong Moms – Savannah. After her first class it was clear that this was a group of women with a shared mindset of being strong, supportive, and empowering each other through fitness and friendship. Kristen maintained a high level of fitness throughout her pregnancy and postpartum recovery, had an incredible support group of mamas, and eventually took on the role of instructor! When she found out her family was headed to Durham, she knew she had to bring Stroller Strong Moms and the #SLAMstoke to the Bull City!

Kristen’s favorite ways to S.L.A.M. include High Intensity Workouts, weight training, and running.

Kristen is an amazing instructor! Her classes are the perfect challenge – she is funny and super encouraging with awesome energy. Her workouts are killer, her smile is contagious, and she can make anyone feel like they’ve always been a part of the group – which is a huge deal to new moms trying to find a mom tribe.

Kristen brings out a fire in everyone she instructs that they didn’t know they had. She will work you hard because she knows you can do it. Kristen is a dedicated leader who puts everything she has into the group that surrounds her, whatever that group may be. Stroller Strong Moms, teaching preschoolers, the neighborhood, Army spouses, friends, you name it! Her creativity keeps classes fun and interesting, while her background in fitness assures you that you will be getting an excellent workout in. Every. Single. Time.

When Kristen joined SSM Savannah, she was such a natural leader in both her strength, stamina and speed, and also her attitude, positivity and encouragement. It was no surprise that she went from supporting moms as one of the group to supporting moms as an instructor, and SSM Savannah was lucky to have her! Anyone who gets to be around her can’t help but absorb a bit of her SLAM stoke. She can simultaneously push you further while still smiling next to you and spreading joy. I have no doubt that she will build just as fun, challenging and supportive a community in Durham as she helped foster in Savannah.

Kristen is amazing. I need a better word than that; in a group where EVERY instructor is amazing, Kristen still sets a new bar and makes it her own. I’m excited when I see that she’s teaching. She’s done her research, she’s going to push you and make you work, and be your biggest cheerleader while you work! I was working out for about a year and a half before I started Kristen’s classes yet I saw huge results after working with her. My arms, back, and stomach made major improvements and I’m pretty sure it’s because when I felt that terrible burn I would hear her yell “this is when you’re getting stronger!! You’re body is telling you to stop, don’t stop yet! 2 more!!” She’s a joy, a ray of sunshine, and a fantastic workout coach. DO NOT MISS HER CLASS!
