Stephanie has been an active person starting from a young age. In the summer you will find her swimming laps, biking around and simply enjoying the outdoors. In the winter she and her family are on the ski hill every chance they get.

Her passion is Kettle Bells. You can find her doing her favorite TGUS or anything that has to do with lifting heavy things.

Stephanie discovered what is now BAM about 6 yrs. ago and fell in love with KB’s and functional fitness. She proceeded to get her CNT 1 and then invited and organized John Hinds to come to Montreal and teach a group of trainers and members the CNT 2 course as well. She has since completed several KB user classes from Louka Kurcer, the KB king of Montreal. Steph is always trying to further master her knowledge and technique of her beloved KB’s.
