Hi there! I am Stephanie Lueras, owner of Heart and Sole Fitness & Wellness, located in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and work with clients in-person locally in my home studio, their home or place or business, or various other locations throughout the Mohave County area. I also work with clients anywhere through various video platforms compatible with smartphones, tablets, and computers to ease in making your goals accessible and attainable. Services include personal training, fitness nutrition counseling, meal planning services, cooking demonstrations, and more! Why Heart and Sole? This is my passion–and I am my own brand. I became an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist out of my own desire to understand the human body, the relationship between habits and physical training, and the impact that endurance fueling and everyday nutrition has on my own body in my own athletic pursuits. In my own life, I have lost over 200lbs through balanced nutrition and endurance sports–not through restrictive diets or other means of drastic weight loss. I believe in a holistic pursuit of balance where we strive for physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness to be our best selves possible.
My favorite client story
I had a person that used to use the line, "I'm too old to get any stronger." They couldn't lift a small piece of equipment in their living room (about 25lbs) without assistance. After 3 months working together, they were able to grab it one-handed while vacuuming and move it with no help--completely shocked the client how much strength they built. At the time of sharing this testimony, we have been working together for 22 months.
My favorite exercise
Aqua fitness! My favorite to teach (and take!) is water yoga
My favorite quote
Fortitudine Vincimus (By endurance, we conquer)
My training philosophy
I don't believe in programs that superimpose a lifestyle onto YOUR life--too often they don't fit our schedules, family, budget, and other values. By starting small and building consistent and sustainable habits, we're able to cultivate long-term change with serious results!
My training experience
I earned all of my certifications through a desire to understand what my coaches and sports dietitian were teaching me about my body as I lost over 200lbs (without dieting) and found a love of endurance sports. I opened my own business in February 2020 to provide that same holistic and individual care tailored to your needs that I created for my own success. My practice provides 1:1 and small group personal training, group fitness, aqua fitness, nutrition coaching, webinars/seminars, speaking, and I have written 2 books--one being an international bestseller.
