About Me

Stephanie d’Orsay MS, LAT, ATC, CSCS

Hi there! I am a certified athletic trainer (ATC) in Boston.  I am also a CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, or NSCA, a personal trainer, and small group fitness instructor. In addition to these certifications and ventures, I am currently studying to become a Certified Health Coach through the American Council on Exercise (ACE).I started this blog in early 2012 as an outlet to share my passion for good food, nutrition, strength training, and all things health related. Over time, it has transformed from a casual hobby to my true passion, and my goal is to help as many people as I can to reach their best potential.

My Health Philosophy:

I am a firm believer that we can all take different paths to get to the same healthy point in life. We do not all need to be paleo, we do not all need to be Crossfitters, we do not all need to be competitive power lifters, we do not all need to be runners. But we do all need to figure out which of these things, among others, works for us to get us to our healthy place in life. I’m certainly not saying that I’ve got it all figured out, but ultimately, my goal is to help others along their healthy living path. Your path most likely will not look the same as mine, and that’s ok — healthy is not a black-and-white, cookie-cutter state. It’s a journey, and sometimes all you need is a little nudge in whatever direction is right for you.  If I can help you find that right direction, then I’ve accomplished what I set out to do!

What Can You Expect From Me?

You can expect a lot of body positivity, general optimism, but also a dose of reality. I’m not going to tell you that those tiny pink weights will make your arms toned if you lift them 100 times per day (they won’t),  but I’m also not going to sell you some magical “easy” solution to finding the best you. Finding and maintaining a healthy state takes a lot of work and support, and I’m here to help you through that and teach you ways to continue your healthy lifestyle into the future. I’ll post some workouts, some inspiration, and just some general life musings if the mood strikes me. I can’t promise a whole lot of recipes, but those will come in small doses as well. A healthy lifestyle is a long and never ending journey, and I’m passionate about helping people find the correct path for them. Posts on this blog and in my newsletter will reflect this passion, and hopefully help to ignite something within yourself to help you build your own passion and motivation.
