Stefan began teaching Goju Kenpo Karate at the age of 16. While competing in his first world karate championships he was convinced to try weight training by the then world champion and a life long love of fitness was born. 15 years later after a World karate championship, certifications under two different fitness boards and a successful career on Broadway he started to notice that most people didn’t realize there was a lot more than lifting weights to fitness. Far more areas and roads to a fit healthy life needed to be incorporated into a successful program. From there he began to focus on learning everything he could about flexibility, strength, balance, stamina, coordination and especially internal health. As well as the multitude of methods to build a successful program designed for the individual. Stefan is also an accomplished dancer and acrobat.
