We are so excited to bring our annual SLAM Get Fit Challenge to Monterey! For the past 5 years, Stroller Strong Moms has implemented this awesome results based challenge for moms to improve their health and fitness. The following are the SLAMazing details!!!

***The Get Fit Challenge is a 10 week program. It will start in Monterey the week of January 18th and end the week of April 4th. The initial assessments will be on January 20th at Toro Park and January 21st at Lovers Point Park.***


The Get Fit Challenge will include both a fitness assessment (during class time) and body composition assessment (before or after class) at the start and end of the program. The fitness assessment will include five different exercises that will be counted/timed.  The body composition assessment will use a handheld bodyfat monitor. We will also be taking tape measurements at 4 locations on your body so you can see your amazing results at the end of 10 weeks.

You will receive points in the following ways:

-Class attendance

-Improvement in fitness assessment

-Improvement in body composition assessment

-How well you follow your nutrition goal


The Get Fit Challenge will happen during regular class days and times. The body composition testing will occur before or after class on those days.

Points will be tallied throughout the program and participants with the most points at the end of the 10 weeks will receive gift card prizes!!

You will take a before/after picture at class at the start and end of the program so you can see how much the hard work payed off!

There is a large nutrition component to this year’s Get Fit Challenge. Leslie Ann Berg MSPH, one of our SSM DC instructors, is a nutritionist with extensive experience in guiding people on what to eat and helping them reach their health related goals.  She will be providing a Nutrition Guide with a grocery lists and meal plans (including 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches, and 4 dinners) for vegan, paleo, vegetarian, and whole food diets. She has answered “Frequently Asked Questions” regarding nutrition quite extensively. These questions and answers will be provided to you throughout the challenge via a private Get Fit Facebook group. You will be added to this group once you have signed up for the challenge!


You will be given a list of 10 nutrition goals on the get fit challenge sheet to help guide you, with an option to come up with your own as well. You will write down one nutrition goal that you will work to follow over the 10 weeks. There is also an option to download a special app that can document how many days within the challenge you follow your goal. The app also gives daily reminders to follow the good habit you’ve chosen.

The past five years of the Get Fit Challenge have been a GREAT success!! Moms lost noticeable amounts of body fat and improved tremendously in their fitness assessments. The results were extremely impressive!! Moms lost as much as 15 pounds over the 10 weeks and many dropped body fat percentages by over 5% (which is SUPER impressive). But most importantly, moms FELT better in their bodies!

We hope you join us for this years Get Fit Challenge!!!
