Nice to meet you!
I'm happy that you found my page.
Hi there, 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 like to 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 Postnatal Fitness Trainer (credentialed through Akademie Wiechers).
I LIVE sports, love to sweat - I turn on my favorite workout music and burn off the daily routine.
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.
