Looking back, it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.

"I was lucky enough to be one of the people trained by Steph and I am the instructor I am today because of her. I was motivated and pushed to limits I didnt know my body could reach. I was not only physically pushed but mentally to my limits and it allowed me to find who I was as an instructor to be able to translate that into my classes. You learn everything from tempo, structure, choreography, and much much more. Looking back, it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. If you have the opportunity to be trained by Steph, you NEED to take it!"

The Activate Method made my dream of being able to be a spin coach feel real.

"The Activate Method changed the way I thought about spin coaching and instructing! Having never taught a class before, I was intimidated by the idea of speaking while riding, leading a group of riders in complex choreography, and even playlisting. Stephanie and the rest of the folks in the course were incredibly welcoming and encouraging! Through group coaching, hands-on workshops, live classes, and 1-on-1 calls, The Activate Method made my dream of being able to be a spin coach feel real. I’m so proud of my ability to playlist, my confidence on the bike, and my tenacity to be able to complete some really challenging rides with world class coaches. About half way through the course I had a huge realization that helped me find my own voice, add some of my personal style to rides, and make kickass playlists that felt like the true me. After completing the course, I plan to audition at a local studio and hope to coach a few times a week. Regardless of the outcome, I hope to continue training and riding in-studio and at home.”

You All Our Secrets

I believe in making the Instructor experience efficient and easy so that you as a Coach can be your best at making an impact in your clients life. My coaching style is real, authentic, conversational and motivational. I don't hold back and I tend to over deliver. When you're done with this training, you will have all the tools ready to start waitlisting your classes weeks in advance. There is no better time to become a coach and up level your skills than now. 

In Any Training At Any Studio

I went through a 3-month training at one of the nations biggest cycling studios, then I was asked to mentor other instructors because I was waitlisting weeks ahead of the schedule, then I moved to Australia and created a Rhythm Based program for the only studio in the state, then I led a team of 14 instructors, and created my own training manual/ program, and now I am hired by studios to guest teach and mentor their teams. I came to the conclusion that if I wanted to not only become a coach, but build my own business around it, I was going to have to do it myself. After waitlisting countless classes, starting my own platform and building my own brand, I'm ready to teach you to do the same.

My name is Stephanie and I am a fitness coach out of San Diego, Ca. I have been coaching for 8+ years and started my fitness journey while I was really young. I started playing soccer when I was 3 years old all the way through to adulthood. Fitness has always been a part of my life but not until years ago did it become my therapy too. Fitness changed my life not just physically but mentally. It changed my perspective on life. And that is why I created the Activate Method, a well rounded workout that is not just physical but restorative for the mind and soul too. 

My classes are energetic, thoughtful, intentional and a wholesome workout. I believe in having breakthroughs and promise that you will have a breakthrough and clarity through movement. I start classes with intention, setting the foundations for the activation, we dive deep into each song, releasing energy and any expectations. You will leave feeling on top of the world, with thoughtful action steps to move forward to your life goals.
