My name is Stephanie. I'm a New York City native who grew up in Queens and went to school in Manhattan. Now, I'm a San Francisco-based journalist, freelance writer, and fitness fanatic. A life-long victim of the YMCA family package, I didn’t learn to love fitness until earning my master’s in magazine journalism at the University of Missouri, where I discovered glow-in-the-dark cycling. After maxing out my need for (stationary) speed, I decided to combine my love of journalism and fitness by writing for publications including MensHealth.com, Men’s Health magazine, MensFitness.com, EagleCreek.com, ReadersDigest.com, EatThis.com, and Bodybuilding.com. I am currently the fitness editor at Fitbit, a company that believes in helping everyone stay motivated and improve their health through tracking activity, exercise, food, weight, and sleep.
I'm a firm believer in morning coffee, hard work, and chasing the burn. I love the challenge of healthy cooking, whipping up protein-rich vegetarian meals, and picking things up and putting them down. Thanks for reading through my portfolio. If my writing has piqued your interest, I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com.

When you're on top of your meals and have your training program set to a tee, you expect to see results. Lean meats, fresh fruits, complex carbs and loads of green veggies, paired with a good sweat session, should show a drop in the scale over time.
We can all agree personal fitness is great, and there's no feeling comparable to that post-workout endorphin rush. But you can't lift for a living, right?
