So proud of these brave women!
More to come!
April 2021 Zoom Workout
"I had been doing exercises on my own for a year but I knew I needed a change. I signed up for these classes and I am so happy that I did. It is a judgement free zone where you can work out in the comfort of your own home. Stephanie always provides a mixture of exercises so you never get bored with the same moves and each exercise can be modified for your own fitness level. Steph also leads you through a cool down meditation period of stretching after the workout, which a lot of classes do not include. Stephanie is amazing and provides a fun and positive environment to work out."
August Zoom Group Workout 2020
"Another great workout with these ladies!!
110 squats, 110 pushups/mountain climbers, and 110 burpees.
We also now have a goal to run a 5k in November. I have done many races, but it has been several years since I have done any consistent running. Looking forward to getting back into running with a specific goal to work towards.
Started today with 1 mile (2 min walk/1 min run). Can’t wait to see my progress!"
"110, that is today’s magic number. We just did 110 squats, 110 jumping jacks/mountain climbers, and 110 burpees! We are getting stronger and we have goals! Thanks
Stephanie Bower Everett and LE!"
"I feel like I have known this incredible woman much longer! She truly got me out of a "rutt" that I never thought I could let myself get to. 1st time Meeting Steff (nothing's a coincidence, Being a Thrive9er, achieving great success on her 14 day cleanse (not starving yourself or liquids only, but learning about your bodies likes and dislikes, your emotional, physical, mental strengths, and not to mention losing inches and pounds!, To her therapy walks or runs, and most recent TRX routine, she's a person everyone should have in their life...try her once... you'll want to continue for "all the things", best times are her LAKE GIRLS Retreats! I love You Steff!"
"I like to share things when I realize that the change has snuck up on me. Like the time my kitchen counter basket went from holding crackers, granola bars etc. To holding fruits and veggies (wt?) Any way i realized that my body has changed over the last 6 months. Now during this time I was doing the Thrive 9 in 90 days, had an epic sickness for a month, then the pandemic and took part in the cleanse. I went for a quick 1 mile walk this morning and ran half of it (wt?) When I came home I got a glimpse of myself in the mirror...whoa! So below are the photos of me before I started this journey and today. I can finally see it and its AMAZING. Remember I hate exercise and the thought of it makes me miserable. I started small and continue small with my changes and they are adding up to big results!"
"Just so everyone knows how powerful changing your lifestyle can be for you and your body. Just got my lab work done and in comparison to my April lab work....wow...
Cholesterol. 211 vs 125! S/b less 200
HDL. 46 v52! S/b greater than 40
LDL. 131 v 54 !! S/b less than 100 or less than 70 for heart patients
Triglycerides. 171 v 104 S/B less than 150
Chol/HDL ratio 4.6 v 2.4. S/b less than 5
I'm beyond ecstatic and my nurses and cardiac doctor too can't believe the drastic difference in numbers for three months! and BIG thanks to Steff and the help of this 14 day cleanse And my son's vegan and heart health knowledge, there's no going back for ME! Here's to Health & Happiness! PS: and these results included a glass of Pinot noir nightly - Steff taught me well on that one lol!"
June 2020 (14-day cleanse results):
11 of responded with weight loss (a total of 75 lbs gone!) and of those that recorded inch loss (over 66 inches gone!) Hellz yeah!!!
"I don't remember when it happened but it has. After a trip from the grocery store this countertop and the basket in the corner would be full of box foods, granola bars, fig Newton's, and the like. Now, it's full of fresh fruits and veggies. Did this happen over night. Nope. It happened when I slowly started to change my habits. I was a McDonalds breakfast and sweet tea drinker DAILY. I gave up McDonalds during Lent last year and haven't gone back. However, I replaced McD's with Dunkin a couple times a week. My order, 2 glazed donuts and a large sweet tea with light ice. I replaced that with keurig Lipton southern sweet tea (way less calories and sugars) and the infamous magic muffin. After doing the 14 day cleanse I now start my day with hot lemon water. My habits changed over time. Over the course if the last 5 months I've lost 7 1/2 inches and 6.4 lbs. Eating real food. Not shakes or powders. REAL FOOD! My exercise is not everyday or is it intense. Stephanie works with you starting from where you are. If you are looking for a quick fix don't bother contacting her, she doesn't do that. She does support you in every aspect of the journey. If you want to some day turn around and notice you've changed for the better then, contact Steff. I'm telling you it snuck right up on me... If I can make these changes really anyone can. You really make it easy. I love you to bits. " MT
Lake Girl Retreat Review - November 2019
click here for more LGR reviews
"Pre-Lake Girl Retreat me was going through the motions of getting healthy, mentally and physically, but not really 'digging deep.' I was holding on to a lot of fear and trauma related anxiety while I felt like I had no one to talk to about it. With Stephanie as facilitator and the wonderful women who also shared so much, I left feeling lighter and with a more clarified resolve of how to become a healthier me. Some of my usual aches and pains I have blamed on age have also lessened. For anyone considering joining Stephanie for a retreat, do not hesitate. It will change your life. Much love to Stephanie - I'm truly so grateful." ~Brenda M.
2 Months Post S.H.I.F.T. Retreat
"I have some news to share. After the retreat I made many changes to the food I bring into the house. I also started planning meals for two weeks at a time. This helps with the daily struggle of what to make. It also saves on food waste thereby money waste. These steps have been beneficial for my whole family. My hubs went to the Doctor for a routine check and he had lost 20 pounds!" ~M.T.
S.H.I.F.T. Retreat Reviews:
"Life changing. The SHIFT retreat was the best experience I’ve ever been blessed enough to receive. Digging deep into who you really are, your purpose, your truth, your values, your passion, what lights your soul on fire, what’s standing in your way of your passion and what you need to overcome! Amazing food. Such fun adventures. Great workouts. COUNTLESS laughs. And tears. So much beauty. Bonds that will last forever. Support. Love. Understanding. I learned so much about myself and what I need to be doing to support my body and my health, both mentally and physically. Stephanie is the most authentic, genuine, caring, knowledgeable, supportive, beautiful, strong, kick ass coach and FRIEND there is! LOVE her, her outlook on health and happiness and her beliefs that everything should be FUN!!!!! Thanks Steph for being you and sharing your gift with us and the world." ~ J.V.
"I so enjoyed our Shift retreat this past weekend at the lake! #dockholiday Met some pretty amazing woman and left some baggage too!! Isn’t it funny how we think we are all different yet we are but we all have so much in common. Thank you Stephanie Bower Everett for sharing your wonderful gift of learning to be healthy and living your life with passion and joy! You are so very talented!!" ~J.P.
"The S.H.I.F.T. retreat at this beautiful location was amazing. The time I had to reflect and connect with beautiful souls was indescribable. Thank you Stephanie for putting this together and helping me with my biology and biography. Xo" ~M.T.
April 2019 (9-Session Intensive):
"Stephanie is amazing...ask me how I know!! I went through her 9 week intensive, life changing coaching!! For me I wanted to lose weight ...but in the end i didn’t realize she was a therapist!! I learned so much about myself and why I do what I do. Life changing!! The good, bad and the ugly comes out but if you trust the process you will be changed for life..."
~Jessica P. facebook post (down 25 lbs and counting)
March 2019 (Transition Review):
"I’ve been working with Stephanie as my Coach for 6 months now and have been really pleased with my growth and our sessions. Her supportive nature and guiding questions have helped to bring to light my reactions to many situations. She radiates positivity that encourages me to push forward in my efforts. Stephanie is flexible with scheduling putting the needs of her clients first, and is able to help me navigate more directly to a goal or outcome. One of the best things I ever did was to connect with her."
September 2018 (14-Day Cleanse):
45+ lbs dropped - Private Facebook Group
"The Total Evolution program is about
baby steps to teach the benefits of total body and mind nutrition. Simply put - I feel better, and I look better.
Steff has changed my attitude toward food – food is fuel for your lifestyle – you choose your lifestyle path by the food choices you make. I am learning how to find what works for me with food and exercise so that each new healthy habit is one that can be sustained.
She is teaching me how to achieve my best self but also rest my best self – recharging is crucial to health. Steff has helped me see what my personal hurdles are in order to design a personal solution.
This is no cookie cutter program! This is no magic pill! Do the homework honestly and you will emerge your best self!"
April 2018 (group review):
Stephanie’s approach to wellness, both mentally and physically, is completely different from anything I have ever tried in the past. We start at the core and then work outward. Understanding why we do what we do and healing pain that stops us from reaching our potential is at the heart of her motivational meetings. Being in a small group really allows us to focus on support, love, accountability and strength. I feel for the first time that I’m making changes that will put me right where I want to be. I would recommend her methods to anyone ready to make the changes necessary to achieve their goals-long term!
"What can i say about Stephanie?
She will be your biggest cheerleader
She will be your mirror
She will be your guide
She will rock your world
Working with Stephanie has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a very long time. I felt stuck in all areas of my life and Stephanie has been a guide back to getting my life back on track. Life can be overwhelming and it’s easy to get lost. Stephanie can help you rediscover your peace, purpose and hope.
Thank you, Stephanie!"
January 2018 Review:
"At age 62, I was out of energy, out of motivation, and more or less out of hope, at least in terms of my self-image. I was tired of fighting. I tried everything at some point in my past with varying degrees of success. I had reached a point in my life where I thought the status quo was all I had to look forward to. I thought my varying health problems were just part of the journey and there wasn’t much I could do about them.
Well...then along came Stephanie Everett. I don’t know where to begin. A few months ago, I asked Stephanie if she would agree to be my Health Coach. Next to marrying my husband, I think this is probably the most important and life affirming decision I could have made. Stephanie is an amazing woman, an amazing coach and an amazing friend. She has a wonderful way of getting to know who you are as a person, what your goals and desires are, and what roadblocks may be getting in the way of your dreams. She has the education, the knowledge, the expertise and the compassion necessary to truly turn lives around. Sessions with Stephanie are a combination of soul-searching, education, positive reinforcement and highly attainable action items. Stephanie uses her expert knowledge of nutrition, body chemistry, psychology, etc. to promote self-awareness in her clients and to provide them with the tools necessary to succeed. Stephanie’s holistic approach to wellness, I believe, is the only thing that really makes sense and the only thing that works.
Since beginning my sessions, I have become much more aware of what is going on with me personally and physically. I’m more attuned to the need for hydration, nutritional balance, and just the plain need to listen to my body. I’m not 100% there yet but the needle is moving and it FEELS REALLY, REALLY GOOD. Thank you Stephanie for listening, not judging, and for making me feel good about myself...something I hadn’t done for a very long time."
November 2017 :
"I began my journey to better myself without thinking I needed to be guided to reach my goals. But I learned very quickly that THAT is exactly what I needed...Someone to Motivate! Support! Encourage! Teach! Steff has given me all of that.
Our first meeting I was careful to make realistic goals that I knew I was going to reach just by making simple changes that I was already aware of, but what I really wanted was much more.
Steff gave me support and meaningful guidance during our sessions; and between talks, using her directions/suggestions as motivators, they were highly effective but not feeling like much of a challenge to me.
I never felt like I was “losing out” or “depriving myself” of anything.
Each action step I took turned into simple everyday habits that resulted not only in just reaching my goals, but went beyond what I ever imagined possible in just a short amount of time.
Now after three months I’ve lost over 20 lbs. I’ve seen positive changes not only in my appearance but most importantly in my energy and motivation to be comfortable with who am I.
This program is about changing habits and not depriving yourself from living. Steff’s enthusiastic personality and positive guidance helped me accomplish my initial goal and continues to help me build upon my lifelong success; being happy and healthy while chasing and raising my two young sons."
September 2017 :
"My deepest thanks to you, Stephanie Everett, for your wonderful coaching over the past months. Your positivity, encouragement and insights have been life-changing in ways that will continue to bless me and the people in my life for years to come.
I always looked forward to our sessions! You stretched me to points outside my comfort zone, but the benefits far outweighed the momentary unease. And, your genuine care, concern and empathy were always evident.
Thanks so much for your friendship, your patience and your dedication to improving the health and lives of others. You have been a true blessing to me!!!"
