Meet the Trainers
Alexa is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor with nearly 10 years of experience. She holds specialized certifications in RRCA Run Coaching and prenatal/postpartum fitness. Her goal is to educate clients to help them achieve their fitness and running goals. Outside of her huge passion for running, sports, and all things sweat-inducing, Alexa enjoys spending time with her two sweet children and equally sporty husband.
“Alexa is beyond amazing at everything she does. It’s clear that she loves her job and has a gift to motivate and encourage others to work out, be healthier and happier. While I have tried a few different things to work out in the past, it’s never been part of my lifestyle and I’ve never stuck with it for more than a few weeks. It’s different with Alexa’s run training. I’m excited before, love it during and feel happy afterwards. I joined Alexa’s run training when she the first offered it a few years ago and have been signing up ever since. I’ve also been excited to follow her training plans outside of the training sessions and join her and others from the group for races including three half marathons, Hood to Coast and several smaller races and relays. I signed up for my first marathon in April and I am super excited to be joining Alexa’s run training for this. My pace has improved since I’ve been training with Alexa and I even won or placed in a couple of smaller races. Besides the training, I made several friends that I would not want to miss. I am so thankful for Alexa, the community she has created and the workout she offers! I encourage everyone to at least try her training. Trust me, you’ll love it! ” –Steffi Kautz
“Alexa is amazing! I had run for years before her run training with only minimal improvement in my speed and endurance. In the one year I’ve participated in her training, my speed has improved dramatically (shaved 2 minutes off my mile time and PR’d in a half), my endurance has increased, and my recovery time is the best its ever been.” –Katie Newcomb
Stephanie is a group fitness instructor who aims to help people achieve their goals, gain a phenomenal community, and become healthier, happier, and fitter. She holds specialized certifications in pre/postnatal fitness, fitness nutrition, and is a certified running coach from RRCA. When she is not coaching, she can be found hitting the pavement or on a trail system, chasing her three girls, or enjoying anything outdoors.
“Run training with Stephanie is nothing short of incredible. From the personalized training plans she gives you, to the education on all things running, to the answers to questions that you may have during the week, she’s always there to make sure you’re achieving your goals. And that’s not even mentioning how FUN the actual weekly training sessions are. Who knew running hills would be something you would look forward to? She will help guide you to whatever goal it may be, whether it’s a 5k PR or completing your first marathon. I never thought I would ever say this, but I love running and I owe a lot of that to my run training with Stephanie.” –Erica Hass
“I can’t say enough good things about Stephanie’s run training program. I love having a personalized training plan to follow each week, and being able to tackle my individual goals. The weekly classes are something I always look forward to because Stephanie has created such a positive and encouraging environment. I go to class ready to be pushed hard, and to have fun. I look forward to my third session with her this fall” –Maria Berglund
