SLAMAntonio meets three times a week near Joske Pavilion at Brackenridge Park. Everything we love for a good sweat can be found here: shaded paths for running, open fields for speed work, stone stairs for step ups, park benches and fences for plyometrics and resistance-band work and a stellar playground for after-class fun. Be ready to S.L.A.M!

Parking & Meeting Location

Park in the spots closest to the playground area and join us by the pavilion. You’ll need a stroller, water bottle, and snacks for your babes. We also use dumbbells, resistance bands 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!

I was so happy when Stroller Strong Moms opened up a location here in San Antonio. I had just given birth to my 4th baby and working out on my own was getting monotonous and my results were starting to plateau. That’s when I began SLAM and the variety of workouts helped me get over the hump and achieve my fitness goals! There are so many things to be gained by joining the Stroller Strong family; health, fitness, and sisterhood being at the top of my list 💘 It really doesn’t matter who you are or where you are at in your fitness journey, there is a place for you in our tribe!

I’m so happy to have found S.L.A.M Antonio! It is an amazing group of genuine, motivated, and caring women and their adorable little ones. Not to mention the kick-butt workouts-I feel so much stronger after just a few weeks! My son has really enjoyed the playgroups and Mom’s Night Out has been refreshing for me. I highly recommend this group to any mama out there!

SLAMantonio is a workout group unmatched by any other! They not only get you in shape with their full-body workouts while encoring you every step of the way (literally) but also act as an irreplaceable support group for all moms! Our monthly night outs are a blast and the kids enjoy all our playdates. I was so surprised how well my 2-year-old does staying in her stroller (even in the heat) and the instructors make sure all the kiddos stay entertained so us mamas can get that sweat on together. Love this group like family!
