Coach Steph and I have been working together over the past six months. I came to her to get help with the nutritional component of my workout plan. I started CrossFit about two months earlier but didn’t feel like I was getting the full benefit. Steph helped me unlock the full potential by showing me how to fuel my body and eat correctly to lose weight and have more energy.

In six months, I have lost 20 pounds while consistently setting PRs on weightlifting and moving faster on all forms at the pullup station (pull-ups, toes to bar, chest to bar). At 54, I have more energy and stamina than I did 20 years ago. Three days ago, I cleaned and jerked 185 pounds. For those without a CrossFit or Olympic lifting background, this is a 192-pound man essentially lifting his own body weight from the ground to his chest, then overhead! Load up a wheel barrow and give it a try?

Most importantly, I learned how to view the food I eat as the fuel to achieve my goals. I learned a process that will be with me the rest of my life. Steph didn’t give me a fish, she showed me how to change my life one good food choice at a time.

The road to eating correctly was a tough one for me. I learned many truths I held were wrong; you may too. It was great to have a knowledgeable guide, and you will not do better than Coach Steph.
