A Salt Lake City native, Stephanie grew up being very active in sports ranging from skiing and snowboarding to competitive soccer, dance, track and field, and horseback riding. After graduating from the University of Utah where she majored in Broadcasting, she moved to Los Angeles to work in entertainment news at the E! Channel and fell in love with her new hobby, Pilates. She certified and trained with celebrity trainer, Sebastien Lagree in SPX Fitness Pilates Method in West Hollywood, and brought to Utah the amped up style of reformer Pilates she loves. Years later she was introduced and quickly became addicted to TRX Suspension Training. She became certified as a group trainer in San Francisco where TRX was founded and not long after that came across Xtend Barre. With over 20 years of Ballet training and dancing in the Nutcracker for many years as a child, she found a workout that fused her passions together, ballet and Pilates! She now teaches classes weekly at Xtend Barre SLC and continues to teach SPX Pilates, TRX, and Circuit Training at King Studio in Foothill.
