Hello everyone , I am so happy to be here with you today and grateful to have you tune into this new episode of the podcast! I am no longer calling my podcast Meditate with Steph, as my lifestyle has evolved, so has my business.
I want to be the first to welcome you to BEYOND MOVEMENT!
Some of you may know that I have been thinking about my next steps for Beyond and what my brand really means to me and my community.
My fitness journey started in high school as I began training to become a DI softball player. Training in the gym 4 days a week, riding my bike to the batting cage everyday after school, then heading to softball practice with the team. All the hustle was worth it when I received my scholarship to play in college, But, when I attended college, my passion for softball was nowhere near my passion to workout! I loved the feeling I would get from lifting weights, just knowing I was getting stronger! I began waking up before class on our off days, just to get a lift in, then go right on over to the field to get my swings in! Training became my therapy, I enjoyed every moment of it.
Beyond Movement is a lifestyle, it's not about moving your body, I was born to connect, communicate and coach.
When I first started Beyond, I had a goal to inspire others to just simply move their bodies whenever they could. Living in New York, I started by training clients who took the subway to work and mentioned maybe getting off at a stop before work and walking the rest of the way, or incorporating light stretching before sitting at a desk job all day. I want to help everyone and anyone who is looking to take their wellness and become the best version of themselves.
After 6 years of training, right after COVID hit, I was given the opportunity to coach a girls softball travel team. At first I was a little hesitant because I didn’t think I would be a great coach since being away from softball for 6 years and not having stepped on a field. But then, I remembered what it was like to have a coach who cared, a coach who wanted to see their players successful and motivated to get better. I knew I could be that coach.
Over the past few months, I have been given so many amazing opportunities that have made me realize what an incredible and humbling journey I am traveling on. My lifestyle has evolved and so has my business. I started coaching a varsity softball team as well as my travel team.
This past week I hosted my first softball clinic with 30 players and it was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever been a part of. I was welcomed by players and parents and was invited back to host another clinic this summer.
These past two weeks, I have taken on new clients who are serious about changing their lives not only for themselves, but to be an example for their kids!
Beyond will always be a place for everyone and I will continue to grow this platform and help as many people as I can.
I want to thank you all for taking the time to be here with me today. I hope to connect with you real soon. Please, do not hesitate to reach out, as my job is to serve you and deliver only my compassion, knowledge and energy!
Now, LETS HIT IT!
