Meet the Coaches
Continuing our education is the highest priority for us. We leave the state several times a year to attend conferences and educational seminars in order to pursue growth and keep up on the latest changes in the fitness industry. Our goal is to make sure that our clients are as knowledgable about health and fitness as they can possibly be. We pass our education on to them by learning from the very BEST in the fitness industry.
Steph Figarelle, BioForce Conditioning Certified, Precision Nutrition Level 1
Steph Figarelle has been involved in the fitness industry for over 18 years, and it’s one of her main passions in life! She started young, working out in the gym as a teenager and then prepared for and won her first bodybuilding competition as a Senior at East High School in 2000.
Steph continued to compete in Natural Bodybuilding competitions until 2009 and more recently has taken an interest in endurance running. She has always been naturally motivated to exercise and make healthy food choices, so the next step was to pass that enthusiasm on to others by becoming a certified personal trainer in 2004 and starting Figarelle’s Fitness LLC in 2006.
Steph is a BioForce Conditioning and Pain Free Performance certified trainer, and a certified Precision Nutrition Level 1 coach.
