The Fairbanks Team

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.

Nikki Milligan | Instructor

Nikki is an ACE Certified GFI and is CPR certified through the American Red Cross. Her husband’s Army career brought their little family to the interior of Alaska in 2017. About a year later after her second daughter was born she joined SLAM Fairbanks and her only regret is not coming to class sooner. One of her favorite things about SLAM is that her daughters get to see strong women build each other up and work hard to reach their goals daily. When she’s not at SLAM or doing all the mom things, you can find her running, reading or exploring with her family.

Ashley Pruitt | Instructor

Ashley, a proud born and raised Alaskan, is an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and is CPR/First Aid certified. When she was in college, she saw some mamas working out in a park. Little did she know, that group of ladies would become a huge part of her life just two months postpartum. She grew up active in basketball, running, and played on the women’s Ultimate Frisbee team at Harding University, where she studied Elementary Education. If she’s not at SLAM, you can find her drinking coffee, running, or hiking with her little one in tow. She feels blessed to be able to be a part of the Fairbanks SSM Team.
