Steph Bower

Steph grew up around dance, health and a passion for healthy food.
As a young lady Steph worked in the normal environment of 9-5pm jobs however always knew that she wanted to inspire and connect with women and men in the Health and Wellbeing industry. Her passion for Pilates and Fitness is her everyday life and loves to share it with our clients of Fleurwellbeing. Steph believes that you need to have fun to enjoy what you do, you need to want to get out of bed at 6am, so finding a exercise that you love it the most important and the rest will follow. She loves providing fun, energetic classes to the studio each day and loves to see people achieve results, become stronger and see how happy they become.
Steph also loves working with young adults and continues to inspire teens to become the best they can be - working with young women in high schools where she is always so inspired at how far they come in such a short time.
She loves to continue to build on her knowledge and is often attending new courses and training, always wanting to achieve more in her career. Her passion in health is also leading her into wanting to become a health coach in the near future to continue to inspire and help others.
