Position

Marine on St. Croix

Why I am where I am: I grew up with a desire to move, but no strong role model to emulate what that should look like. I've pieced it together over the years though, after continuing to learn through various sources. My goal is to be that source of inspiration for all different types of people. My goal is to help each individual be the best version of themselves they can be, no matter what form that takes. I want to show people that you can use activity, not as a means to an end, but as an end in and of itself. I also want to help people enjoy moving. Joy comes in freedom; freedom of movement, freedom of pain, freedom of expression. Helping individuals progress toward quality movement, whether that enhances their performance or quality of life, for as long as they would like to keep moving, that is what gets me out of bed every day.

Fred Stephens

Bike Coach

I'm a cyclist with years of racing and coaching experience. I started with bicycle road racing (actually BMX but that was short-lived) and quickly added the velodrome to the short list of very awesome types of riding. Mountain bike racing showed me that there may be no limit to the fun of riding and racing on two wheels. I took time away from my usual riding to race numerous triathlons of all lengths including Ironman. In addition to my cycling experience, I have had much success coaching athletes pursuing their goals. I value helping others improve and achieve!

Tori Popham

Marketing Director

I have been running since I was in middle school and have continued ever since. Although you won’t see me coaching or teaching your fitness class, I have a passion for running and endurance sports. I love spreading the word about Tri Fitness Coaching through creative social media campaigns and building our TFC community in and outside of the gym!
