The Monterey Team

I started Stroller Strong Mom’s a couple of weeks ago and instantly loved the workouts and community, but today after class my daughter age 2 gave it the best review and I thought I would share. She said “I love Stroller class. Mommy, and baby, and Brooke (herself)” out of the mouths of babes! This group is more than a fitness class, come and see!

Kim is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and is CPR/ACLS/PALS certified. She also works full time as an ICU nurse. She has lived on the central coast for 7 years with her husband Chris and 2 year old son Lucas.

She’s a freelance writer, mom to a toddler that doesn’t like to sleep, self-proclaimed foodie, Coast Guard spouse and ombudsman, and active SLAMIE. Bree joined Stroller Strong Moms in 2016 shortly after moving to Monterey and quickly found her niche of moms, athletes, and community on the Central Coast. When not SLAM’n, you can find her exploring the Monterey Peninsula for beaches (or food), lifting with her husband, or trying really hard to get her toddler to nap. She looks forward to being able to help moms reach their fitness goals and show them that being strong is beautiful.

Cassie Cercy | Instructor

Cassie Cercy is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and is CPR/First Aid certified. She moved to Monterey in June with her husband, Bryan and sons, Jaxon, Tyson, and Mason. She owns Stroller Strong Moms Savannah and was an instructor for Stroller Strong Moms Columbus last year. This is her third SLAM spot!

Alison Bogan | Yoga Instructor

Alison has been practicing yoga for 18 years, and completed her 200 hr YogaTeacher Training in 2015 with Shelley Tomczyk and Leo Cheung in Vancouver, Canada. A former dancer, Alison walked into her first yoga class thinking it would be a way to stretch and relax, and found so much more. Over the years yoga has been a route to feeling her mental and physical best; a place to reset from working in high-pressure, high-stake PR and health care fields; and a path to becoming more compassionate towards herself and others, and more present and connected in day-to-day family life. It helped her have a fit pregnancy, and was how she found her “self” again after becoming a mother the first, second and even the third time. Alison leads all-levels classes focused on discovering optimal alignment for your body, smart sequencing, and linking breath with movement to allow students to more safely deepen their practice and personal yoga journey. Born and raised in Northern British Columbia, near Alaska, Alison and her husband met in Vancouver before moving to San Francisco. They have lived in California for 10 years and feel lucky to now call Pacific Grove home. They have three children, who keep them busy in the yoga of life. When not at SLAM or on her mat, you can find Alison Sweating Like A Mother minding kiddos at the beach, chasing her toddler at the playground, or hiking with her family. On rare occasions she gets to mountain bike with her husband, and has been excited to recently add SUP and skiing to her outdoor pursuits.

Shelby Johnson | Run Coach

Shelby is a UESCA certified running coach. She also has a master’s degree in Physician Assistant studies and is CPR/first aid/PALS certified. She recently relocated from Colorado to the Monterey peninsula with her husband and 3 kids. Shelby discovered Stroller Strong Moms in 2011 when Alexa first brought the tribe together in Columbus, GA. Until recently she has had to watch from a far with no nearby affiliates, but in the meantime grew her love of all things running. She does not discriminate distance and has run races from 5k to 100k. She has a particular fondness for mountains and trail/ultra running. Some may call her crazy but her desire is to share her love of running with as many as she can. Her favorites ways to sweat are hill repeats or beach runs with her SLAM sisters.

Just did my first class and I can’t wait for the next! Power packed hour and baby was entertained the whole time. Love that there are two location options.

11 months later – SLAM has become part of our weekly routine and I could imagine it any other way. I’ve become the best version of myself with SLAM and love that my baby boy gets to watch all my progress. This group is definitely more than just a workout class and I leave each session feeling as excited as I did that first day.
