Stephen Lavery

Personal Trainer and Founder of Step1 Fitness

I'm Stephen and I set up Step1 Fitness to help everyday people improve their lives through their health and fitness. I've been training for around 15 years, and during that time I have learnt what works and what doesn't work when it comes to exercise, nutrition and habit change. Much of this has been trial and error as I have made almost every mistake to be made along the way. but always enjoyed learning more about training and eating healthily.

So in 2018 I got qualified as a Personal Trainer to help others who are struggling, confused or just need support and accountability with their own health and fitness challenges. Most people are overwhelmed by all the conflicting information out there and are led to believe that they need to jump on the latest fad diet or exercise type. The truth is that getting fitter, healthier or improving your body composition is more straight forward than you may think.

Step1 Fitness exists to help busy people get fitter and healthier by teaching them what really works when it comes to nutrition, exercise and lifestyle improvements. There are no crash diets, or extreme exercise plans that take over your life and run you into the ground. My approach will still involve working hard, and while it’s simple that doesn’t make it easy. I'll help you focus on the right actions that will have the biggest impact for you., then support you to implement them consistently around your own lifestyle and other commitments.
