He led an active life the minute he was born. His passion for fitness started in primary school where he competed as an athlete in sports such as wide & high jumping, 100-meter sprints and downhill skiing.  The love of beach volley ball allowed him to win Gold Medal at the Gay Games in Paris, France,  2018.

His love of nutrition was developed on the organic farms in Streifing and continued through his work as a culinary apprentice in Hotel Bellevue Vienna. While receiving his Culinary Arts Degree at Aigen in Ennstall, Styria, Stefan was further bitten by the “fitness bug” and continued training at the local gyms and fitness facilities in his area.

Commitment and discipline are key parts of Stefan’s personality. In 1997, equipped with two suitcases and a goal, Stefan immigrated to the United States. Once in New York, he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from New York University’s Stern School of Business while continuing to work towards many of his certificates – NASM, AFFA, ACE, Charles Poliquin Strength Coach, Paul Check Corrective Exercise Coach,Reebok University, Johnny G, Jane Waller, Gin Miller, Club Danube, Body Pump, … .

Stefan’s students continue to prove that going through changes in life, age and metabolic processes does not mean that they must settle for poor health, pain during sitting, poor movement or older age, waning energy and frequency. All women and men can benefit from taking small daily steps to improve their movement, health, energy levels, and looks to make the 40s and beyond the most satisfying and productive time of all our lives.
