Hey there SLAM nation! Emily Shafer and Alice Smith here! We are both former military wives who fell in love with SLAM and have been dying to get back to it since moving to a SLAM-less area. So we are beyond thrilled to be able to introduce Stroller Strong Moms to Hoboken, NJ!

We met at East Carolina University where we were roommates and both members of the dance team. As luck would have it, we both married Army guys who also happened to be best friends. Emily started her SLAM journey in Savannah, GA after the birth of her first daughter in 2016. After moving to Columbus, GA where Alice recently had her first son, Emily dragged Alice to SLAM class and it was love at first squat.

As new moms, having the opportunity to get in a great workout AND bring our babies along was a game changer. But on top of that, we got to experience being a part of the amazing community that is Stroller Strong Moms. The mamas we got to sweat with each day became friends, teammates and an incredible support system. To be a part of such a positive and uplifting community that pushes you to reach your fitness goals while your kiddos watch you become stronger and healthier is a true gift.

After both our husbands medically retired from the Army, we managed to end up living in the same apartment building in Hoboken, New Jersey and both just recently had our second babies! Life is pretty much a dream! The only thing missing is Stroller Strong Moms, so we decided to build our own SLAM tribe here in Hoboken! We can’t wait to sweat with you mamas!

Keep up with Hoboken on Facebook, Instagram and their webpage!
