Shame is Lame

Okay first of all, I have a new favorite hashtag: #shameislame (follow me on Instagram @stephaniejfischer) I have been having the BEST time these last few months. Developing my very own self confidence course, (it’s so fun to create!), reading Brené Brown’s books on women […]

Fit Tips for Type B’s… Like Me!

Anyone who has witnessed me obsessively rearranging BODYPUMP equipment in the group fitness studio would probably peg me as being very much a “Type A” person. Other traits in support of that conclusion are that I’m high energy, ambitious, and it drives me crazy if my […]

Don’t be a duck.
