I have been working with Stephanie for over a year twice a week. Having suffered a stroke eleven years ago, she is just what I needed to strengthen my left side which was seriously impacted by the stroke. She is a superb diagnostician/therapist who developed a long term plan for me to follow. She is very thorough and patient in her approach while at the same time she insists her clients stick to the plan for their own benefit. Over the course of the last sixteen months, I have regained strength in my arms and legs while improving my balance, agility, stamina, walking technique and self-confidence - all because of Stephanie. She is compassionate, creative and very well-organized. I am so pleased I discovered her service and unique skill set. - Mark Sullivan
I am an 85-year-old retired RN with a national certification as a Psychiatric Nurse. This allows me to use the title RNC after my name. One of my instructors once said, “It means you know your stuff”. That is Stephanie! She knows her stuff!! She has so much practical knowledge and explains things so well, it makes me understand what is going on with my body. And why I should do the things she asks me to do.
I miss my gym during COVID but Stephanie created an online core-training package for me. We used Zoom and Stephanie provided diagrams of every exercise that i could view online and printout. The training and her guidance was just what I needed! I'm over 60 so I need to keep up with exercises and need to do them correctly. It has been a challenge during the pandemic. Stephanie was so easy to work with and the exercises she gave me work better than what i was doing at the gym. I have much less exertion with more benefits! I got exactly what i needed. Thank you Stephanie! -Elizabeth
I am a 82 year old woman with very painful arthritis in my knees and back. When I started working with Stephanie 5 years ago I was having difficulty walking around my very tiny house and getting up out of a chair. The pain was horrific at times. Through consistent patience and persistence, Stephanie has gotten me to the point where I can take short walks around my neighborhood with my cane. I can also do my own housework again. I have returned to enjoying outings with family and friends. Where I had been home bound before. Stephanie has encouraged me to continue to exercise more regularly which has decreased my pain and allowed my to reclaim my life. I am so grateful to have Stephanie in my life. -Jean
When I saw how much my husband was benefiting from his workout sessions under Stephanie's encouraging and expert direction, I decided that I could also become more flexible and gain in strength and overall fitness. So many older people give UP on exercise because they find it boring and so repetitive. Not with Stephanie. You will be amazed at all the different devices she brings to aid in your overall fitness. Stephanie works on balancing techniques. flexibility training as well as working on all the muscle groups. Stephanie is very professional, friendly and cheerful. She inspires me to exercise on the days when she is not here to guide me. Stephanie has become my friend. Stephanie brings the kind of training that is most needed as we age and become more sedentary. – Jean
"Stephanie was a great personal trainer to work with. I was very impressed with the progress that she made with my mother-in-law. Having her come to our home was very convenient and made it much easier for my mother-in-law to have consistent exercise. Stephanie's outside of the box approach to building strength and stamina was very refreshing. Using items from around the house made exercise seem more familiar and less overwhelming. It also made it easier to do exercises on the days Stephanie wasn't coming. Her consistent encouragement and confidence building made a big difference in the progress that was made. Overall Stephanie's courtesy and professionalism made her a pleasure to work with. My husband and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fresh approach to wellness. "
Initially I had no interest in working with Stephanie. I knew that I needed it but being a confirmed non exerciser, I was happy to stay that way. Problem was I was having difficulty walking. I began having a series of falls and after each fall I hurt more and could do less. Then I fell and broke a bone in my ankle. Not wanting to end up in a wheel chair I decided to seriously begin working out. It's not easy but with Stephanie's advice I've been able to do things I didn't think I was capable of. Like taking a cross country trip (via plane) to attend my son's wedding. Without Stephanie's help I would not have been able to undertake that trip by myself. I also did a bus trip of Civil War sites in the Virginia area with much walking. I was tired when I got home but very satisfied that I was able to do that trip. If your like me and need a push Stephanie is the ticket. – Gene Gore
I made the decision to call Stephanie about a year ago and I'm very pleased to say that it was/is a good decision. Stephanie evaluated my abilities and weaknesses, gave me a work plan and worked with me to implement it. My biggest problem is not being consistent enough to see results. Through her guidance I've been able to exercise regularly and can see the positive effect it has on my whole being. That is bodily, mind, self esteem and self confidence. I'm well into my senior years and was not looking forward to aging, stiffness and the inability to do less and less. After working with Stephanie I'm feeling much more confident about my future. I highly recommend "Keep Moving With Stephanie". – Alice Turcotte
