...Build a foundation of health & happiness and seek true beauty thru strength...
We all have different backgrounds, abilities, needs, and wants in training + nutrition programs
Some may like more home workouts and some may like more gym workouts.
Some may enjoy eating eggs and some may not or may be allergic.
Some may want to build muscle and some may want to lean out.
You are unique. We get that.
That's why there are no cookie-cutter programs and no cut-and-paste deals here. We screen applicants to be sure we are the perfect fit to work together. We start with a blank slate until we get to know you. Then we look at your personal goals, injury history, dietary restrictions, and many other factors to write the best program suited specifically for you. A program that educates you for sustainable healthy living and a like-minded community that supports you on your journey.
When we talk about "sustainable" living, what we mean is you can still enjoy life!
YES- you can grab a delicious dinner out on girl's night, you can go out for ice cream with cherries on top, and you can indulge in waffles and mimosas with your girlfriends. On our squad, there are no foods off limits with your flexible dieting program.
Why do we do this? A restricted, low-calorie, no carb diet is not only hard to stick to but it is also absolutely miserable and will lead to you being unhappy and unsocial.
Keep your social life and happiness while getting healthy at the same time!
"Cookies make the world a better place"
Sincerely, Coach "Cookie Monster" Steph
When I was in college, I was a cardio bunny. I would run 7-15 miles a day because I was naive and I thought that was the answer to fat loss. I stopped enjoying it and it got to the point where I felt I had to run that long or else I was a failure. The truth is, steady state cardio is not going to get you the results you want.
These days, I lift heavy 4 days per week (with an emphasis on compound exercises) and no longer do steady state cardio. I spend no more than 5 hours in the gym per week which is freaking amazing. It leaves me plenty of time to do the things I love and enjoy... and you can too!
My clients programs emphasize strength training with a little HIIT (high intensity interval training cardio) sprinkled in- if needed. Their workouts are around an hour each allowing them to devote more time to their friends and family than their gym sessions. Now if you really enjoy walking or running, go for it! But I think if you try my style of training, you'll be converted to a lifting lover sooner than you think!

I had a wonderful experience being coached by Stephanie & Zachary for my first competition... Every week we collaborated and adjusted my macros to ensure that I would be my most lean on show day, always taking into account how I was feeling and how my body was responding. Having their guidance through the process was incredibly beneficial, as I would have been guessing what to do if I had tried to prep on my own."
For everyone out there wanting to compete in a bikini competition or if you have just been thinking about it, Beautiful to the Core is your best online resource. Stephanie is amazing and very knowledgeable in every aspect of competing. I'm glad I had her with me each step of the way. Beautiful to the Core rocks!"
Working with Stephanie using the Beautiful to the Core prep was a great experience. She was prompt, professional, super pleasant, and always supportive. Not only did her plan get me the body I had been striving to achieve but Stephanie was there to make adjustments and help me through.
Thank you so much for helping me reach my goal! 14 Ibs lost, 89 workouts, and a ton of support. I couldn't have done it without you!

Working with Steph and Zach over the past 1.5 years has not only helped me reach my goals to compete, but I have also reached a point of consistency with exercise and nutrition that I could not do on my own. Their guidance, honesty, and knowledge has been so beneficial in competing, strength, and nutrition. Having coaches that tailor a plan specifically to you has been wonderful! They are always available if I have a question, and are amazing to work with!
