Stephanie Joanne – Fitness Ambassador

Muscle Bombshell had the pleasure of interviewing Stephanie, an all around fitness guru.

Here is more about Stephanie…

Stephanie Joanne emerged into Toronto’s Fitness Industry in 2001. Since then she found herself working in many different capacities.

She has worked as a Personal Trainer, Club Consultant, Group Fitness Instructor, Studio owner and everything in between. Currently she is also managing some of Toronto’s most prestigious fitness facilities (Extreme Fitness) and is an ambassador for healthy, natural living.

She is training Toronto’s most high profile Television personalities and athletes. Regular appearances on CityLine and CityNews as their health and wellness expert have put her at the top of her game.

Stephanie’s passion for fitness originated in her early childhood where sports and active lifestyles were naturally encouraged. Her love for competition and fitness directed her to pursue a background in Kinesiology at York University in Toronto. Her love for people and passion for fitness created the genesis of a partnership between IST and Stephanie Joanne.

To date she has achieved many accomplishments in the industry. An impressive roster of clients and testimonials, co-owner of her own supplement company (Supplements Together), a self named line of nutritional products, a role as media liaison and ambassador to Toronto s Extreme Fitness shows us that this girl is not slowing down any time soon. She has well established herself in Toronto as a respected Fitness Guru and with all the projects she has on the go you will sure be seeing a lot of her to come.

Stephanie’s philosophy for her clients is to stress balance integrating fitness, nutrition and mental well-being. In hopes to share with as many people as she can, she embarks on a journey of showing you how to love your body through natural nutrition and supplementing with quality products.

Stephanie lives in Toronto Ontario. She has traveled to 19 countries and has lived in Holland (where she was born), Germany, and the United States. Stephanie’s nationality is Dutch and Chinese. Well versed and well cultured, she understands that health is universal. She loves her family and has a passion for adventure and travel.

1. Briefly share with us your background (Education, Interests, position etc.)?

I have a Kinesiology background from York University and have been in the  fitness industry for 10 years. I’ve worked my way up the corporate fitness ladder and I am a proud ambassador for the Extreme Fitness brand. Today I am the Media Liaison for Extreme Fitness, health and wellness expert for Canada s #1 most watched morning show (CityLine) , Celebrity trainer, co-owner of Supplements Together and I have a self named line of Supplements. In terms of interests, I’m a gym girl! Although I do need my dose of yoga, dancing and adventure too. Currently I am living in Toronto.

2. Who has inspired you the most to succeed as a Fitness Career?

When I started it was very much a boys club (It has since changed…) The boys who spent all the time teaching me all the ins and outs of fitness have really contributed to my success in the industry and have cheered me on. Today however I must say I am inspired every single day by my clients. There is nothing more inspiring and rewarding that having the opportunity to introduce fitness into someones life.

3. What is your training philosophy for your clients?

Its really important for me to stress Balance. Mental, emotional and physical well being are all part of my training. I always do a complete lifestyle analysis. In order for me to confidently maximize results for my clients I must know what they are doing when I am not with them.

I believe down to my very core that you can not get the most out of life without fitness and feeling good in your skin. It is because of this that I will do my best every day to push fitness and health to as many as I can.

Fitness to me is so much more than a chizzled exterior. It being strong and powerful in your body! Its having energy and a hop in your step everyday. Its loving life!

4. When is your next appearance?

I will be back on CityLine on August 24th and again in September. I will be attending several fitness and health related events on behalf of Extreme Fitness and Supplements together so I’m sure I will see everyone at the shows. I keep everyone updated on my twitter and Facebook as to what I’m up to.

5. What  is your message?

That a fit life is a great life. Think about fitness from the inside out. Obsess more about living in a strong and healthy body instead of a ripped and toned one, with this in mind your body will change the way you want it to naturally.

Take care of the most complicated and important machine you will ever have to operate in your life…your body!

Remember…its all about the journey!
