The Inside Outfit Company
We are driven by You.
Who We Are
Being fit is about more than simply working out.
It’s about the kind of thoughts you’re thinking on the inside,
The limitations those thoughts and attitudes are putting on you,
And the amount of “I can’ts” that come up when you’re doing something hard.
How you respond when something is harder than you thought it was going to be is where you forge your fitness. Working through the pain and discomfort is where the magic happens!
Mind > Matter
You are capable of doing hard things.
The Inside Outfit Company is committed to pushing you to do just that.

To cheer you on when you think you can’t go any farther,
And to inspire you to tackle the hard workouts again and again and again.

Passion. Dedication. Determination.
Hey guys! I’m Stephanie. I’m 29 years old, married to one of the greatest men I know, who just so happens to be my best friend. I’m also called “Mama” by two of the sweetest little people. I love everything about coffee (mostly black but sometimes I splurge for all the bells and whistles), homemade baking, blogging my thoughts and sipping a yummy glass of chardonnay! I love a good girls trip, nights snuggling on the couch with my man and of course, I’m always game for a shameless selfie.
I’m passionate about being active in every aspect of my life: from running around the park with my kids to making sure I get in daily workouts for myself to active date nights with my husband; being active is a very important value in my world. I’m all about working hard to achieve the results I want #hustle, but also about resting harder when time allows for it.
I’m also passionate about my faith and belief in Jesus.
The IO Co., launched out of a God-breathed dream and vision and I’ll always give Him credit for it and pursue Him unashamedly in everything that I do, with IO Co,, and beyond!
“So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.”
– Hebrews 10:22-25, MSG
Real People. Real Results.
My life was completely changed during my training. Stephanie has far exceeded what I thought training could be! Initially, I didn’t think I could work out the way that would be required of me [to reach my goals]. I wanted to lose as much weight as possible in the time I could and gain muscle at the same time.
I didn’t have confidence in myself at all; I didn’t believe in myself. I was worried that I’d fail at training. During training, I learned to love myself. I gained a confidence in my body and have learned to love working out! I lost almost 40 pounds and 20 inches! I also gained a new [healthy] relationship with food. I have more energy to play with my daughters and have run in several 5K races since. My life will never be the same because of the training I did [with Stephanie].
Thank you for believing in me when I didn’t. For showing me what I’m capable of and for taking a chance on me and the goals I wanted to meet. You have truly changed my life for the better.
Stephanie is truly amazing at what she does! My biggest concern when I started training was my back injury from high school. It’s something that has limited what I could do in the past and I was worried it would limit what I would achieve in training. My back flared up during training and Stephanie stopped me, encouraged me to get physiotherapy and waited for me to be ready to continue training.
You gave me time to heal but also changed my program to promote strengthening in the area that was injured. My back no longer put limitations on me or my lifestyle. [During training] I lost 20 pounds and became stronger! I started eating clean and feeling so much better about myself. I’ve met a lot of personal trainers and none of them are even close to as amazing as you!
You don’t just take care of your clients’ body. You also place value on their mind & spirit; you can’t get that anywhere else!
When I started training, I was worried I wouldn’t see big results in a short time frame. I was very worried my family obligations would hold me back. Stephanie explained how each exercise toned and burned a specific part of my body that I wanted to improve and she checked in with me a lot to ensure my mental and emotional state was strong. She gave me motivation and strategies to re-focus when needed.
Above all, during training I learned about form, technique, pace and how to pay attention to my body during my workout. I watched myself achieve things I thought were out of reach. I went from doing 10 pushups on my knees to doing them on my toes! Attempting just a few box jumps, to conquering them! Stephanie pays very close attention to the goals of her clients. I felt her commitment to my goals in every workout! She is tough but caring. I never felt bad or nervous to tell her I wasn’t keeping up my efforts at home. She always remained positive came up with different strategies we could use to help me follow through with my plan. When she says, “I want this to work for you”, she means it! She is constantly adapting and tailoring workouts, even researching new ones, to target certain parts of my body.
I am so grateful for the focus and dedication Stephanie brought to my workouts. I feel strong physically and mentally. As I continue to work toward my next goals, I can hear Stephanie’s voice in my head encouraging me all the way. I am so grateful for Stephanie’s approach and expertise. I look strong, feel strong and believe I am strong.
A Holistic Approach
Our Trusted Resources
I believe in a holistic approach to caring for your body. Living in wholeness; mind, body and spirit when it comes to training our bodies. Training is an important component to caring for your body, but so is rest, listening to and loving on our bodies with some practical TLC.
