Kathryn is a certified Group Fitness Instructor through ACE. She is also CPR/AED certified through AHA. Kathryn likes making fitness work into everyone’s daily lives and loves to make working out fun. She loves hot yoga, running and tabata workouts, and seeing babies imitate their mamas being strong is one of her favorite parts about SLAM.

Kathryn is originally from Columbia, SC but thanks to being a military spouse, she has made Southern Pines home for the past five years. She has a B.A. and a M.Ed. in Education and has taught middle school math before staying at home with her babies, Parker and Garrett. She loves learning and is always taking new courses to help grow her knowledge of fitness and support her SLAM mamas.

“SLAM is the most unique and powerful community that I have ever been a part of. These women genuinely love, support and care for each other. Seeing the mamas and littles cheer each other on at SLAM and in life might be the best feeling ever. It has been an absolute blessing to be able to continue to grow this incredible tribe here in Southern Pines. SLAM is like no other…come see what we are all about!”











The Southern Pines Team


Lucy Lee

Lucy is originally from Athens, Georgia, where she swam competitively growing up. After swimming in college at NC State and graduating from grad school at UNC, Lucy and family moved to paradise in Hawaii. While not working as a social worker, Lucy spent much of her free time there ocean swimming, hiking, and visiting the outer islands. 

Lucy was excited to return to North Carolina in 2019, and after her second baby was born, she joined SLAM as a way to start feeling like herself again. Even though she vividly remembers how sore she was after that first class, Lucy was hooked by the welcoming, supportive and energetic atmosphere at SLAM. Lucy is an ACE Fitness certified Group Fitness Instructor and CPR/AED certified through the American Heart Association.

Dorothy Murtaugh

Dorothy has been a lot of things, most recently an RN, mama of a cutie, and now a certified ACE fitness instructor. As a member for the last two years, she has motivated mamas just by being humble, strong, supportive, and awesome and now she gets to make us sweat with her sneaky moves and cardio hardio.⁣

Dorothy says “SLAM has not only helped me get into the best shape of my life, but has introduced me to some remarkable women. Together through tough workouts, fun group chats and playdates, we have created one amazing community. Instructing these mamas is truly a privilege. I hope you will let our incredible team help you reach your fitness goals. Like I always say, ‘The hardest part is just showing up.'”

I look forward to going and getting my sweat on, I have never been stronger or felt more confident with my body. However, this group is more than just getting fit together. This group is an amazing supportive community of strong, fun-loving women. Women who have become more than just work out companions, more than just friends but have become family.”
