Music City S.L.A.M.

Where We SLAM

Shelby Park

Shelby Bottoms Nature Center and Greenway

****Spring/Summer Location

Shelby Park is nestled in the heart of East Nashville and has everything we need for a killer S.L.A.M. workout: a huge green space for sprints and strength work, running paths to get those strollers moving, picnic tables for step ups, a playground for the kiddos, and even a view of the Cumberland River.

Parking & Start Location

We meet in the empty field to the left of the Shelby Lower Playground, located by the river off of Davidson Ave, next to Vinny Links Golf Course and the baseball fields. Several parking spots line Davidson Ave along with a parking lot at the playground.

****Winter Location

Monday –  Friday | 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM

Parking & Start Location

We will be moving indoors this winter at Mana. We will have access to two indoor soccer fields side by side, allowing ample room to spread out and maintain a safe distance while getting a good sweat session in. The parking lot is gated–enter through the white gates, go past a small building on your left, and Mana is the next building on the left. The building is shared space. Park before you get to the row of flags and enter through the first set of double doors on the left.

The Nashville Team

Cortney Hawks (Co-owner & Coach) 

Cortney Hawks is an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor and is certified in CPR/AED through AHA. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Spanish. A transplant from Charleston, SC she moved to Nashville in 2016, discovering SLAM in 2019 after her second was born. She grew up playing soccer competitively, coaching and reffing local soccer leagues, leading excursions as a camp counselor, and has always had a passion for connecting with others. Pre-SLAM, Cortney spent her days managing for Athleta and overseeing their local community involvement. She immediately found home when she found SLAM. She found a tribe to navigate through motherhood and find balance with. And the amount of strength and camaraderie felt from a group of women she had just met was unmeasurable. Cortney is thrilled to have the opportunity to impact others in the same manner. She and her husband Jon are proud parents of two children and love to explore. Her favorite ways to sweat like a mother are SSM classes, hiking, and biking.

Becca Dryden (Co-owner & Coach) 

Becca is a long-time Nashvillian and mom of two rambunctious kids. She is an ACE-certified group fitness instructor and CPR/AED certified through AHA with a continuing education focus on athleticism and nutrition, prenatal and postpartum. Before having kids, Becca worked in mental health doing homeless outreach and resource coordination. She continues to have a passion for community-based advocacy work. Becca has always been an active person – competitive swimming as a kid, classical dance from adolescence through college, yoga, lots of hiking, and the occasional sweaty living room dance party with her kids. SSM Nashville has been a meaningful way to move her body while developing strong friendships, self-confidence, and new respect for herself and her body’s abilities (the SLAM tan is an added bonus). Becca is so grateful for the community she has found through SSM Nashville, and is honored to be able to help continue building on such a strong foundation.
Becca’s favorite ways to Sweat Like A Mother are circuit training, endurance running, hiking, and working in the garden. Becca’s least favorite way to Sweat Like A Mother is the daily heart-pumping task of putting socks on either of her children.
