About Stephan

My main objective is to turn disbelief into confidence. one of  many distinctive qualities of Stephan's methods, is striving to help people develop bodyweight-appropriate strength. Focusing on weaknesses instead of playing into strengths, forces us out of our comfort zone and into growth. I pride myself in the diversity of my clients and their abilities, to change the perspective of one’s own strength. Let’s change the way we think about fitness and strength together!



My favorite client story

One of my favorite recent projects was a client who had an injured glut and we rehabbed it to full function and more. “My Journey to Pistol Squat starting with a torn, scarred, and weak right Glute: I was so weak in my injured glute I could not even do an assisted Pistol squat. Coach Stephan helped me break down individual components of the Pistol by working on single leg balance, ankle flexibility, hip flexor, and glute/quad strength. This involved working my way up from ground zero to increase ankle flexibility with duck walks and a variety of yoga squats. We built balance and core strength by doing single leg swings and lungi g exercises and glute and quad strength with variety of body weight squats and hill sprints. We then progressed to assisted pistol squats and to my surprise I was able to do full pistol squats after 2 months of training- a full 4 months ahead of my goal thanks to Coach Stephan’s ability to deconstruct the pistol squat components and address all my deficiencies accordingly.”

My favorite exercise

I enjoy any and all bodyweight exercises that include functional or dynamic movements.

What I like about having Stephan as a personal trainer is that he pushes me to be healthy and reach my goals by myself I don’t have the will to go to the gym on my own. Knowing someone there is with you to support you and teach you everything they know helps.

For someone who didn’t even like the thought of working out Stephan has changed my life with his training. His workouts always amaze me and they are never dull. I look forward to our workouts every week!

I am so grateful to have started my calisthenics journey with Stephen. At a time when years of my normal workouts no longer servers me, I was looking for something that would take my fitness to the next level. Training with Stephen helped me move the needle… fast. If you’re looking for an expert in calisthenics, let Stephen be your guide.


Stephan is by far the best trainer I’ve ever had. He helped me overcome numerous injuries and take my strength to levels I never thought I could hit before. It’s been an amazing Coach!


My husband and I started our personal training program with Stephan and we loved every minute of it. Fort Lauderdale is lucky to get such an amazing guy!

I used to think I was “fit” doing CrossFit 6 times a week and lifting heavy. I wasn’t able to do a pull up, my glutes wouldn’t engaged, had back problems, etc. Etc. It was pretty humbling to discover how I was not training all the supporting muscles that are so important to be strong. I started working out with Stephan and saw a huge change. Doing calisthenics with Stephan took me to the next level. Today, I am able to do 10+ pull ups and push ups, hold a handstand for 30+ seconds and so much more. He really pays attention to form and making sure the right muscles ar engaging. I would recommend Stephan to anyone who wants to take their fitness to the next level.

Stephan combines calisthenics, mobility training and yoga in a revolutionary way that promotes overall functional strength. Being able to do cool calisthenic moves like handstands and muscle ups is a bonus.


Stephan completely changed my view on fitness. I came from a CrossFit and running background and thought the only way to gain strength was with weights. I have been training with Stephan for 3 years now and am the strongest and leanest I have ever been. He’s amazing, dedicated and will change your life forever!

I got trained by Stefan during Covid when most gyms were closed. I am so glad I got to know him and got his personal attention. It changed on my thinking on what I could accomplish as he was instrumental in up leveling my fitness. I can’t thank Stefan enough for training me.

Stephan is the best personal coach I've had. He mixes calisthenics, yoga, mobility and conditioning in a challenging workout that I always enjoy. He will not only help you get stronger, but gain flexibility and improve your posture.


Stephan is an amazing teacher. I can’t think of another trainer with his depth of knowledge regarding movement, flexibility, and strength. I can’t recommend him strongly enough!


The best personal trainer I have ever had the pleasure to work with. As a midlifer male (50+) Stephan helped me reach personal fitness, strength and mobility goals I have only ever dreamt of. And best of all with humor and actually little effort. Thanks Stephan!


When it comes to holistic workouts and wanting to build both flexibility and strength, Stephan is the perfect trainer. He actively listens and is attuned to your fitness goals. An amazing friend and motivator.


Stephan’s handstands are hands downs the best in town. I love the virtual attentitiveness.

Stephan is a personal great trainer. He is very knowledgable on how the body works, is great at giving tips, tricks and any modifications you may need. I am always pleasantly surprised at how sore I am after working out and can already see a change in my body and energy level. Highly recommend!
