About Me


Hey there!

My name is Stephanie. I'm a native New Yorker who lives in the Bay and works as the fitness editor at Fitbit, where I run the “Get Moving” channel on the blog and write UX copy for Fitbit Coach premium programming . A lifelong 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. I’ve written for publications including MensHealth.com, Men’s Health magazine, MensFitness.com, EagleCreek.com, ReadersDigest.com, EatThis.com, and Bodybuilding.com, where I previously served as senior editor.

I'm a firm believer in morning coffee, hard work, chasing the burn, and—of course—getting in steps. 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 stephaniesmith365@gmail.com.
