The Team

Stephannie Makovsky


I offer Personal Training and Integrative Health Coaching to clients seeking health and balance in their lives. A graduate of William and Mary, I also served in the US Air Force.  I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, and a trained Health Coach through Duke University’s prestigious Duke Integrative Medicine. I’m currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health.  My favorite aspect of life is not only maintaining my own health but also providing support to my clients through health coaching, wellness education, exercise programming, and mentorship.  I absolutely delight in helping others reach their fitness goals, and I thoroughly enjoy encouraging people, coaching, educating, observing personal transformation, and positively influencing lives.
“Make one small step today towards finding an optimal you!”
