It's time to fuel your strength

Lifting weights makes you feel like a total 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 heavy 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 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.

My path to being a 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 wanted to study science, and 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.

I started focusing on strength, not the scale.

And I began learning that in order to support that strength, I had to fuel, train, and recover properly. 

It was liberating.

Eventually, I left the classroom in 2013 and started working online to share this message with the wider world.
