Live Stream Personal Training, Classes and Nutrition Coaching
An idea, a passion and a brand
Fitness Junky has been growing its community since 2005 starting its humble beginnings at Durham Women’s Fitness in Whitby. It began with an IDEA, A PASSION and a BRAND for a small retail store. Although the store and studio closed during the recession of 2008, Stephanie Medford vowed to keep this community moving through education offered via Canadian Fitness Professionals Inc. (canfitpro) for Personal Trainers and Fitness instructors. In more recent years, as Master Trainer for SoulBody™Fitness, Stephanie has been sharing her love of dance influenced and barefoot strength workouts with a global community. Recently recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Female Fitness Health Leaders 2021!
Stephanie and her team are honoured to serve a commUNITY of fitness junkys and enthusiasts via Virtual classes and Fit Pro Mentorship. Our team welcomes you to a community of Fitness Junkys
Are live virtual classes impersonal? Just the opposite, according to Stephanie. She finds that running her studio online allows her the time and space to connect with her crew in a way that feels even more intimate than in-person classes. The feeling of comfort that her clients get from working out at home – and the option to turn their cameras off until they are ready – lets them find joy in movement and be themselves. That’s what this former dancer is all about. Good Moves is sponsored by Punchpass. Visit punchpass.com to learn more about our simple fitness booking software.
