Hello – I am Stephanie Handley… Personal Trainer at Fierce fit.
A little bit about me… My love of sport started at 3 years old. Throughout childhood I was involved in various activities including swimming, gymnastics and dance.
I graduated from University of central Lancashire with a social worked based degree, (Care, Community and Citizenship). I knew I wanted to help people but was unsure of which path to take, I found myself lost, I finished university and still not a clue what to do. During my time at university I no longer found time for physical activity, my love for food grew and my weight slowly crept up.
I knew something had to change as I felt friends were moving on around me and I was stationary. This was the kick start I needed to go on my fitness journey which has seen me shed over eight stone in weight, complete my first marathon in Geneva raising money for UNICEF, qualify as an Advanced Personal Trainer and Nutritional Advisor.
Since then I have done further courses in kettle bells, box fit, outdoor training and core stability. I believe variety is the key to keeping your workouts fun, remember you don’t have to be extreme just consistent.
I get huge satisfaction at helping others achieve their fitness goals, my main aim is to make sure each client is happy, healthy and achieving.
I hope my story will inspire others to make the changes they have always wanted to, with a little help from the Fierce Fit Squad.
