BIO.

Stephanie is a NASM certified personal trainer with a love of fitness and movement. Growing up in a small Virginia town, she studied 15 years of classical ballet, jazz and hip hop where her affinity for music and expression came to life. Relocating to Tucson, Arizona she achieved her BA in Media Arts with an emphasis on Producing from the University of Arizona and continued westward to settle in San Francisco. After working in advertising for three years, stress led to chronic illness and a renewed perspective. It was time to pursue what mattered most; a healthy lifestyle and career.

Teaching Pilates, Barre, and TRX have complemented her skills in strength through joint stability, which cultivated a personal passion for yoga and CrossFit, completing a 200HR CYT in 2014, as well as CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate in 2016. Stephanie has been dedicated to overseeing and creating new programming for Pilates ProWorks, specifically matBox, a new fight-training hybrid fitness method that launched internationally in 2015. Training teams around the world set in motion her current business Get Hungry SF, designed to provide premier fitness training at DIAKADI Body in SOMA, as well as group fitness instructor training workshops and courses to support industry professionals. 

"My objective is to inspire individual greatness and success, and I hope to motivate each person to explore, and eventually define, what that means to them. My classes are focused on cultivating advanced body-awareness, self-respect, and self-confidence through hard work and dedication; move with presence. You’re doing the best you can today, with what you have at hand, so appreciate that change is inevitable and that nothing is permanent. Let go and have some fun!'

Testimonials.

If you’re looking for a trainer who will help you feel stronger and more confident then Stephanie is your gal. Always at the forefront of new techniques and innovative ideas, Stephanie builds her sessions with a challenging variety of exercises that target your individual goals. To say she exudes encouragement, understanding, and patience is an understatement. She has an uncanny ability to push you further than you ever thought possible, all with a smile and a ‘no pressure’ kind of attitude. During our sessions, she goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure I’m challenged and will happily make adjustments when necessary. I appreciate how focused she is and yet we are never without a few good laughs.

Perhaps above all, Stephanie’s passion for health and fitness provides a level of trust and support you don’t often find in a trainer. With a sophisticated understanding of anatomy, she is quick to correct your technique or help you recover from a prior injury. Over the years she’s become the voice in my head when working out alone - encouraging me to finish one more rep and reminding me to maintain proper technique! As a result, I’ve never felt stronger and healthier than I do today.

I have been working with Stephanie for almost two years. She is very intelligent and has a great demeanor / sense of humor which makes her very fun to work with. She is very good at customizing a workout plan that is specific to your goals and needs. She prepares each workout in advance, building upon prior sessions while continually expanding the exercise repertoire to keep you on your toes. Since working with Stephanie I have become much stronger and adept in my main activity, ultra-distance mountain running.
