Hello SLAMfam! My name is Hannah Reyes and I am so excited to be the owner of S.L.A.M. Ocean Isle Beach! I am a mom of three- Olivia(4), Deluca(2), and Elena(1). Me and my husband, Walter, met when we were both active duty in the Army. After moving quite a bit and having babies back to back, we decided to settle down near the beach.

For me, motherhood started out completely different than what I had imagined. I had just transitioned out of the Army and my husband had orders to Fort Polk, LA. I went from having camaraderie and fitness, to a new body and isolation. Having a new baby in 2020, during the pandemic, felt like trying to survive postpartum on an island. I spent the next two years suffering from postpartum anxiety/depression and navigating my new role as a mother without a support system.

Then one day, it all changed for me. We moved to North Carolina and I found S.L.A.M. Cameron-Sanford. I was welcomed with open arms and endlessly supported. I had finally found my village that encouraged me to be the best version of myself, while also raising our babies together. Fitness has always helped me feel like myself again after having kids, and S.L.A.M. gave me space to do just that. Not only has it provided me the community we all need in motherhood, but our kids get to witness active mothers and even stronger bonds. It’s just a plus we all get to have a park date at the end of each class!

S.L.A.M. changed everything for me and that is why I am so passionate to share it with moms of Ocean Isle and surrounding areas. I hope each mother that attends S.L.A.M. Ocean Isle Beach feels supported, strengthened, and valued as every mother should. For more info on our opening and to follow us and cheer us on, check out our Facebook and Instagram pages!
