  • Instruction and assistance with the fundamentals of physical fitness and gym equipment

Stephen Grabor

What started as an insecurity blossomed into a career for Stephen Grabor. At 6’1”, he graduated from high school weighing only 120 lbs and was able to put on over 20 lbs of lean mass within a year with strength training. After having first-hand knowledge of the feeling and results that fitness could bring, Steve knew he wanted to revolve his life around the field. He began teaching classes at the YMCA and gained experience with a wide range of ages and fitness styles. He taught classes such as HIIT, women on weights, triathlon training, wellness coaching and fitness training for children and teens. Beyond this hands-on experience, Steve wanted to pursue higher education to provide the best care for his clients. He began at The Ohio State University before transferring to Otterbein University and graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion and Fitness. This rigorous program included a personal training practicum, Olympic weight lifting and group fitness. Immediately after graduation, Steve began working in a personal training studio doing both personal and group training. Through all this experience, Steve gained both the confidence and the knowledge to improve his client’s health. One of Steve’s greatest passions lies in training beginner weight lifters to add muscle mass and learn the fundamentals of bodybuilding. Starting as a 120 lb newbie, Steve is now closing in on 200 lbs and he loves helping others in a similar position change their body and their confidence. When he’s not with beginner bodybuilders, Steve loves making HIIT programs for weight loss or muscle isolation programs to sculpt his client’s bodies. His interactive, fun programs will keep you guessing, and his positive attitude challenges his clients to reach their goals. He will work with you to ensure your workout plan is specific to your goals and give you to education to sustain the changes long term.
