Hi, I’m Shantelle, the owner of Stoutheart Fitness. I have served my country and now I serve my community by helping others achieve a healthy and happy lifestyle. I want women to overcome this perpetual stigma or fear of touching and moving a heavy barbell. I want to do my part in the movement of showing how beautiful being strong can be. As a result, I pursued my education where I earned a Bachelors of Science in Technical Management with a concentration in Small Business Management and Entreprenuership from DeVry University in 2015 and then an Associates in Advanced Personal Training and Exercise Science from Bryan University in 2017. I went on to earn my personal training certification from the National Association of Sports Medicine shortly after. I also earned a Crossfit Level 1 Trainer certificate in 2014. I came up with Stoutheart Fitness from following my passion for fitness and serving others. I have achieved many goals in my life but creating Stoutheart Fitness is particularly important to me because it allows me to do what I love while helping others live the best life possible both physically and mentally.
Besides living my dream of helping others achieve a healthy lifestyle, I enjoy falling more in love with my wonderful husband and being amazed with our very loving dog, Speckles. I also enjoy spending as much time as I can with my four nieces and nephews, sister, parents and close friends. I try to always look at my cup as half full, and I have truly learned how to appreciate the lemons given to me in life by making the best lemonade and lemon meringue pie;) And, I always live boldly, fearlessly and maintain a Stoutheart.
