Sweat Like A Mother (SLAM) Workout

Join us for an invigorating and inclusive outdoor workout designed for all fitness levels with additional expertise for pre and post-natal moms. This 45-minute bodyweight workout is led by Natalia Gusching, a certified personal trainer in pregnancy & postpartum athleticism. You can expect a warm up, 2 – 3 stations of cardio/bodyweight strength circuits/core work, and a cool down.

Partners, caregivers and children welcome! If your child is under 4 years old, they need to be secured in a stroller or wagon for class safety. Older children can sit on a towel or mat next to parents during the workout and join in as they are interested.

Please bring a yoga mat/towel and water, as well as snacks/toys to entertain the littles. After class, join us for a themed “Bubbles & Burpees” playgroup for the kids!

SLAM is scheduled for the NVMM Rooftop. In case of inclement weather, it will move to the Great Hall. This workout is designed for parents and their kids, ages 5+.

Natalia is a certified NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) personal trainer, a Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach, and is CPR/AED certified.

Natalia has a marketing degree from The Ohio State University, and spent almost 8 years working with Abbott Nutrition in sales & analytics before becoming a stay-at-home mom after her second child was born.  Shortly after that, she found her first SLAM community in Savannah, GA and loved how it challenged her physically but also supported her emotionally through her mothering journey.

After leaving Savannah, her continued passion for fitness and motherhood led her to open a SLAM Columbus location in late 2021.

Natalia loves sharing the SLAM magic – where you come for the workout but stay for the community.  She believes that every mother is an athlete, and that moms can thrive when they find the perfect mix of sweat and friendship. 

Her favorite ways to SLAM are with leg burners & AMRAPs. She also enjoys running & training for half marathons. When she isn’t SLAM’n she’s likely doing an organizational house project, drinking coffee and reading, or spending time with her 3 daughters and husband.

S.L.A.M. Sweat Like a Mother is a comprehensive exercise program for women in all stages of motherhood, but it is also so much more than just a fitness group. They are a community that strives to bring women together as moms and as athletes. S.L.A.M. believes in showing children that through movement you can build strength. Classes combine fitness with camaraderie, and offer an opportunity for women to come together under a common goal of bettering themselves, challenging themselves, and becoming the best version of themselves that they can be.



The event is finished.
