Stef is truly one of a kind. Her workouts were challenging, fun, and customized for our individual capabilities, even though one of us loves the couch while the other prefers to run half-marathons.
We both looked forward to these work outs as a way to spend time together and have some fun, but also to be challenged physically and mentally. Stef isn’t just a personal trainer, but someone who understands and embodies what true health is and is willing to work with you to help you achieve it.
I have worked with various trainers over the years but reached a point where I just wasn’t getting the results I wanted. Within a very short time of training with Stefanie my body changed in ways that I didn’t dream were possible!
She provided me with nutritional counselling that completely changed the way I both looked and felt, and challenged me to push my body physically past any limitations I may have place on myself.
Stefanie consistently comes up with new workout ideas to keep me motivated and trains right along side to further push me! I highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in achieving amazing results and wants to have fun doing it!
Stefanie is the first personal trainer that I have felt completely comfortable with. She customizes my training based on my personal goals and passes along valuable nutritional information, which I’ve never had a trainer focus on until now.
Stefanie works within my limitations but is always there to positively push me to my greatest potential. I would highly recommend her to anyone for private, bridal or bootcamp sessions. As a bride to be myself, in one short month of working together, I’ve lost 2 inches off of my hips and waist. She’s the best!
I have been training with Stef for the past 4 months. I had just had my second born in July and had weight to lose from the first and second – a total of 45 pounds! In just 4 months I have already lost 20 pounds. I feel stronger and much better about myself. Stef has been a pleasure to work with – she helped me change my whole diet (I was eating really unhealthy before) – this is the healthiest I have felt in a very long time.
Her training sessions are intense and she helped me build up my strength to tackle exercises that I couldn’t even do before.
Not only is she a great personal trainer but she has also become a friend – she makes you feel comfortable & is willing to go above and beyond to help with any questions you have. She comes to your home so it is very convenient for me as I have two kids and she also brings all of the equipment with her! She makes the training sessions fun and interactive – I would strongly recommend her to anyone!

My husband and I started working with Stef about 6 months ago because we wanted to make some positive changes to improve our diet, our fitness and our overall health. Stef has worked with us twice a week, recognizing our capabilities but pushing us to challenge ourselves at every session.
Just about every week, she asks us to do something that I can’t imagine being able to do and yet, she has clearly understood how far we have come because we always manage to do what she asks – maybe not well at first but it doesn’t take much before we can complete the repetitions she sets.
Stef has also helped us reviewing our diets and with improvements in both activity and eating, we’ve both lost about 30 lbs so far.
Stef’s help in making positive lifestyle changes has been invaluable. From everyday things like running late to catch a GO train and being able to do it without being out of breath or running up and down stairs multiple times in a row because we’ve forgotten something or just bending down to pick something up off the floor – the changes we’ve made thanks to Stef are evident.
I have been training with Stefanie for almost 2 years. The results are truly remarkable. I am seeing better results than when I worked out at the gym with a trainer and all the equipment.
Stefanie is very experienced, her motivation, dedication, willpower is truly remarkable and inspires me! I am in the best shape I have ever been in my life and I am 58 years old. I am now weighing the same as when I was in high school. The only difference from then and now is I am firm and strong. No more jiggly jello legs and arms!
Over the years Ive heard comments like “nice shoulders” or “you can change the shape of your body”. Didn’t really understand or believe it but I am now living proof. Exercising with Stefanie will change your life!
With the help of Nikki as my personal trainer, I was able to loose 12 pounds in 2 months. She pushed me to work hard which motivated to me to give my full effort to reach my goals. She took the initiative to research and provide me a nutritional plan to achieve a more effective result but also to live a healthy lifestyle for my health condition. Getting a personal trainer is one of the best decision I have made so far as I’m more happier than ever.
After spending far too much money on yearly gym memberships that only got used in the month of January when I had the short-term self-motivated drive to do something about my weight, I sought out an alternative that would hold me accountable.
I found Pickering Personal Training online. I sent an email and Stefanie contacted me right away for a consult. She drove out to my house and we sat and discussed my goals, my current health, diet and exercise routine (all of which were not great), and we set an appointment for my first training session. In truth, I figured I’d do one or two sessions and quit – that’s my normal M.O. when it comes to my regular body maintenance. That was about 5 months ago. I now have a weekly session with Stefanie, my own personal Wonder Woman, who not only pushes me to do far more than I thought I could, but she’s actually made me think about my food choices ‘every day’.
I have suffered from Urticaria and Oedema for many years and take medication daily to help control the symptoms. Since meeting with Stefanie, she has given the some amazing advice about nutrition and inflammatory foods to avoid – I now only need to take my medication every third day on average.
I cannot say enough about Pickering Personal Training. One day a week Stefanie shows up with a smile, an armload of equipment and a workout routine that targets muscles I thought had long been lost!
