Hi! I’m Megan, owner of SLAM Charleston! I am mom to two wild and crazy boys, Peter age 6 and Patrick age 2. I have an ACE Group Fitness certification, an ACE Fitness Nutrition certification, a Run Coach certification through Road Runners Clubs of America, and a Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coaches certification.
I started SLAM’n over 5 years ago at the SLAM DC grand opening. I expected to go just to support a friend, but fell in love and was hooked from the start. During those first few months I became a stronger version of myself, not only as a mother, but also as an athlete. A year later I became a instructor.
Yes, I fell in love with the workouts- but SLAM is SO.MUCH.MORE. than just a workout. It is a community of women that support each other through the ups and downs of motherhood. It’s a hug after a sleepless night, a meal dropped off at your door step after a new baby joins the family, a high five at the end of the race, and everything in between. SLAM has been the one constant in my life through my highest of highs and lowest of lows. Through SLAM, I know that I am NEVER alone.
I love that SLAM is incorporating new ideas on what it means to be a fit mom. That you don’t have to strive to “get your body back”. That a mother is strong no matter what her shape or size. That we’re all doing motherhood together and that there’s room for EVERYONE in our tribe. These are the messages I have heard over and over through my years of SLAM.
