Monday, Wednesday, and Friday | 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM

SLAM meets three times at Thompson Park in the zoo parking lot, but check the Facebook page for updates and changes. 

Inclement weather classes – Please “like” us on Facebook for the most up-to-date information on where to go during poor weather conditions.

Parking & Meeting Location

Park in the zoo parking lot. You’ll need a stroller, water bottle, and snacks for your babes. We also use dumbbells and yoga mats. Don’t have those? That’s OK! Our instructors have extras.

For everyone’s safety during class, all children age 4 and younger must be strapped into a stroller. Older children on a school break are always welcome! We just ask that they play near your stroller during each station. SLAMDads, family visitors and friends from out of town are always welcome free of charge.

Class starts at 9:30 so we can get you sweaty and back to your busy day in an hour!

SLAM Bosses

Laura Sasala |

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.

Stephanie Noland |

Steffi is a proud Army wife and mother of two-year-old twins. She just finished her bachelor’s in business management and has an ACE certified group fitness instructor license. She is also CPR/AED certified through Red Cross America. After having twins, she struggled with not being able to work and when she moved to Leavenworth, KS she became a member of Stroller Strong Moms Leavenworth in 2017. This amazing group of ladies changed her life. The support among all mothers was amazing and she reached in that year fitness levels she never thought were possible. When she moved to Fort Drum, she found a like minded SLAM sister and is excited to start stroller strong moms Fort Drum with her. Both are hoping to bring to Fort Drum, the same sense of community and camaraderie they were able to experience.

Steffi’s favorite way to SLAM are high intensity workouts and group exercises.

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!
