Crossfit Level 1, Canfitpro Fitness Instructor Specialist, NCCP Coaching Level 1, Boxing Ontario Level 1 Coach
After swimming competitively for 10 years, boxing competitively for 7 years (with 32 amateur fights) and teaching spinning classes in globo gyms for 5 years, Steph found crossfit in 2010, and has since converted her whole family, as well as many friends and co-workers! Steph’s favourite “girl” wods are Cindy and Annie. In her past lifetimes, Steph has been a high school teacher, a lifeguard, an assembly line worker and a bike courier. Steph coached different sports for many years, including sledge hockey, track and field and boxing. Steph and her husband Paul hiked across Scotland (literally, from one coast to the other) in 3.5 days, and they have also been on countless canoe/camping trips to Algonquin park, including their son, Izak for his first trip when he was only 2 months old. These days, if she is not at the gym or spending time at home or outdoors with Paul, Izak, and their dog, you will most likely find Steph riding her folding bike between her offices in downtown Toronto in rain, snow, sleet, or sunshine. Steph’s favourite food is chicken (with chocolate as a close second) and she will happily drink any kind of coffee (even from a sketchy no-name convenience store) as long as it is hot and fresh.
