It's time to fuel your strength

getting strong = feeling like a badass

It’s also a catalyst for a more expansive life. 

It’s time to challenge the BS status quo of the nutrition and fitness space; around here, we embrace lifting weights, building muscle, and we don’t shy away from carbs. 

If you’re ready to fuel your body, lift, and recover using evidence-based strategies, you’re in the right place.

Hi, I'm Steph, a strength coach & Performance nutritionist for women!

I’m here to challenge the status quo of the fitness and nutrition space.

You won’t see 1200 calorie diets, detox plans, micromanaging your food, or advice for melting body fat here. Ew.

You deserve more than the limiting narrative pushed on women: that we’re not strong or capable.

Focusing on getting stronger and what my body could do – instead of how it looked – changed everything. Now, I help women like you do the same.

The path to Performance nutritionist & strength coach was not a straight line.

Competing in sports is something I’ve done since I was a kid. From soccer to mountain bike racing, CrossFit to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, I love the feeling of challenging myself and being connected to my body. 

In middle school, I became fascinated with how the body works – episodes of The Operation on Discovery were my jam. I went on to major in Biology with a concentration in Human Physiology. After college, I spent 12 years as an educator, teaching biology and chemistry to high school students.

I continued competing at a high level in sports, but years spent trying to get smaller, lighter, and leaner were starting to take a toll. By 2010, I was under-fueled, losing muscle, and constantly fighting off injuries.

Later that year, I walked into a gym and started lifting free weights. Little did I know this would change my life forever.

focus on strength, not the scale.

It was liberating.

To build strength, I had to fuel, train, and recover properly instead of obsessing over skinny.

Performance > aesthetics

Eventually, I left the classroom in 2013 and started working online to share this message with the wider world as a Certified Sports Nutritionist (CISSN) and strength coach (NASM-CPT). 

If you’re ready to fuel your body, lift, and recover using evidence-based strategies, you’re in the right place. 

Go hit that squat PR. 
Get your first pull-up. 
Carry all the groceries in one trip.

Whatever your strength goal, I’m here to root you on.
