After 20 years of teaching, Stephanie still finds moments of laughter and joy every time she walks through the gym. Her athletic interests are constantly evolving, but her commitment to fitness remains steadfast. Most importantly, Stephanie has fallen in love with taking care of her body, and her contagious enthusiasm makes all who know her are better for it every day.

If you could write a letter to each new member, what would it say?

“Twenty years ago, I took my place at the front of the room for the very first time. Little did I know this gym would become my second home — the place where I’d fall in love with my husband; the refuge where I’d shake off a bad day; the place where I’d celebrate victories big and small. I’ve taught more than 4,000 since then. I’d teach with a baby in my belly, a toddler on my hip and, momentarily, crutches by my side. But most importantly, this gym is where I’ve sweat away the years with wonderful people I’m proud to call friends. Thank you for joining our fit family! Who’s up for another 4,000 classes?”
