SLAM Boss Laura Sasala

Laura Sasala | slamdrum@strollerstrongmoms.com

Laura is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and also CPR/First Aid certified. She was an elementary school teacher and high school cross country coach before becoming a stay-at-home mom. She discovered SLAM when she was 6 weeks post-partum in Monterey, CA. From that first class she was hooked. Stroller Strong Moms helped Laura feel physically challenged as an athlete and emotionally supported as a new mom. She is thrilled to open SLAM Fort Drum and bring SLAM love to the north country. She enjoys running, skiing, hiking, and of course, sweating like a mother during class.

Rita Chavez | Instructor

Rita found SLAM in 2019 when SLAM Drum opened. Although she didn’t have any stroller babies, she still came to class and she found a love for the workouts and the community that SLAM gave her. Rita is a mother of two school aged girls, and has a passion for continually learning and helping other women know that strong is beautiful.

Kaitlin Walling | Instructor

A mom of three who turned to fitness after becoming a mother. She loves to be outdoors as much as possible with her family, no matter the time of year. After having her second child she was invited to the second SLAM class at Fort Drum and became hooked on the group fitness and community it provided. There isn’t a particular favorite style of exercise she loves, but what she does love is trying anything once! Her biggest passion is food, properly fueling the body, and teaching others to do the same. She is currently finishing her degree in health and nutrition with Kansas State University and will be applying to the dietetics program in order to become a Registered Dietitian.  

 

Jennifer Bassett | Instructor

Jennifer is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and CPR certified. She has always had a dedication to health and fitness which led her to obtain her bachelors degree in food science from Clemson University. After welcoming her first baby Will into the world in February 2020 she joined SLAM to connect with other moms. To say she found her support system in this community is an understatement! Jennifer loves to be outdoors whether it’s running, hiking, SLAMing or chasing her son around a playground.

Fort Drum is in store for an incredible opportunity! Stroller Strong Moms group has changed my life, providing great workouts and a great community! On days when I was unmotivated to get out of the house for a workout, these ladies encouraged me to not only get a good workout in, but enjoy all the best moments of being a mum! These women are full of positive energy and they have helped me to be the best I can be!
