PERSONAL INTERVIEW WITH STEPHEN
Let's get to know this gifted fitness expert a little better!
1) Who’s your ideal client?
Male or female between the ages of 30-50 that is motivated, with the desire to learn and execute.
2) What’s your favorite Organifi product?
I take every single product every single day. Organifi really has enhanced the quality of my life. I get to wake up and take probiotics and turmeric in the morning, then I have protein mid-morning and mid-afternoon and combine with green juice (vanilla protein with red juice, or chocolate with green juice) and it works well for day.
Right now, my diet and nutrition looks like freshly made breakfast, a mid-morning complete protein shake with greens, meal prepped lunch and then a workout mid afternoon, post workout favorite thing is rice cakes and “protein mud”- gives me crunch and salt - and then freshly prepared dinner. It’s so easy. My FAVORITE is the chocolate protein.
3) How’d you figure out your unique training style?
It’s customized for everyone. I care too much and am so detail oriented and try to educate people because I’m so obsessed with these things that I can’t help but try to push that and customize everything. I love working with people individually.
4) What’s your “catch phrase" that you say a lot during your class?
“Let’s crush it!”
5) Is there anything else you want us to know? Or what’s one takeaway you want people to have?
- Don’t overthink it and simply act on it/execute/take action/experiment.
- You can do anything for two weeks. Try it and be as objective as possible once you’re done and then see if it works for you!
6) What is one thing people wouldn't guess about you?
Open book. That’s hard. People are surprised to know that I work with people remotely. They know I do meal prep and am a personal trainer, but they don’t usually know that about me. Another thing is that people don’t assume that I also enjoy unhealthy food. It’s a balance. :)
7) What would you say people in the industry best know you for?
For having an intense passion for nutrition and applying it to individuals. It’s such a huge cornerstone to any transformation people want to achieve.
CLIENT TESTIMONIAL, JACLYN BEACH
I can’t express enough praise for Stephen. He took my husband and I both into his world of training and trains us at the same time on the same training days. He has taught us the importance of food and how to love what we eat. He has also taught us to harness that good “hurt” after an amazing workout. I used to run from that feeling and give up - but he taught me that it’s me changing my body.
I am down a total of 139 lbs. My husband is down a total of 84 lbs. Each day we work out with Stephen is a blast. He works us hard and motivates us harder - and he ALWAYS checks in on us to see how we are doing through the week.
We are super blessed to have Stephen as a trainer - I have 60 lbs. to go and with him by my side - I KNOW I will get there.
