What got you into crossfit?
I was teaching fitness classes at a facility where part of the space was being used for CrossFit classes. Everyone looked like they were having so much fun so I tried a class. That’s all it took to get me hooked!
What is your favorite part of crossfit?
I love CrossFit because of its inclusivity. Literally every movement can be adapted so anyone of any age, shape or size can be successful. I love seeing people accomplish things they never thought they could, whether it’s climbing a rope, hitting a certain weight on a lift, or improving their mind set, every single person can be successful. My favorite part of Teneo specifically, is the friendly, welcoming community. Everyone is always cheering each other on and inspiring each other in positive ways.
What is your favorite & least favorite movement?
I love rope climbs and pull-ups! My favorite lift is the snatch! My least favorite is most definitely burpees!
What is your day like outside of the gym?
I’m a full-time 6th grade teacher. When I’m not working or at the gym, I’m spending time with my family, friends, and my doggies. I love cooking, traveling, theater, concerts, hiking, obstacle course racing, stand-up paddle boarding, and really anything outside.
What’s something not many people know about you?
I’ve run five marathons.
As you have can see, Stefania is a BADASS and an all around awesome human. We are so lucky to have her as a huge part of the community!!
