Owner and director of Armature and Armature Education, Stephanie took up power lifting at the ripe age of 40, gymnastics at 42 and olympic lifting at 44 and loves both Strength Training and Pilates in all its many forms. Formerly an instructor trainer for Stott Pilates, Breathe Education, the APMA Diploma and now NPT, she loves encouraging instructors to look at Pilates through a wider prism than just the Pilates modality itself. She is fully certified through five different Pilates schools, has a Cert IV in training and assessment and Principal Trainer status with the PAA. She recently authored six Pilates continuing education courses for Australian Fitness Network (including Pilates for Strength Training) and FitPro (UK) and presents regularly at Filex and national Pilates conferences.
Stephanie designs and curates Armature Education's workshops.

When not thinking or training Pilates and/or Strength, she runs a construction company with her husband. She is the mum to three children - none so far have caught the Pilates bug, but she is trying!
