Nice to meet you!
I'm happy that you found my page.
I'm Stefanie, the founder of 'Shape It Up - Personal Training'.
I would like to briefly share my story with you:
When I was six years old I told my Mom that instead of going to ballet lessons I'd rather play ball, like my Dad. He'd spent his weekends on the soccer field following his semi-professional career.
Sure enough she signed me up at a handball club. From this day on my love and passion for sports started.
I competed as a handball athlete for more than 21 years.
Always up for trying new activities, I have participated in several running events in different countries, competed in obstacle races (Tough Mudder, Xletix Challenge…), competed in a bodybuilding show, and sought to gain expertise in strength training/conditioning & physical well-being after I had stopped competing in handball.
I have since turned my hobby into my profession as a Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Nutrition Specialist (both credentialed through the National Academy of Sports Medicine) as well as a Certified Pre- & Postnatal Fitness Trainer (credentialed through Akademie Wiechers).
I LIVE sports, love to sweat - I turn on my favorite workout music and let go of the stressors of the day.
I'm happy by nature, love to laugh out loud, enjoy good food, wine, and strong espresso :-)
I know your journey well, and as your Personal Trainer I want to help and inspire you towards an overall healthier lifestyle, improved fitness, and better nutrition. I want you to understand what it means to really own your body - To take charge of your health, to love the process, and to truly embrace yourself.
Let's Shape It Up together!
I look forward to meeting you.
