STEPHANIE SMITH

Hello World!  I’m Stephanie Smith, owner and instructor at Pilates Revolution and Fitness.  I was first introduced to mat pilates in 2004 while living on the east coast and doing some dance training.  In 2009, after moving back home to Utah, I decided to try a pilates reformer class with my soon-to-be husband.  I fell in LOVE!  (with the reformer… I was already in love with the soon-to-be husband ;))  The benefits I experienced were amazing and I couldn’t wait to go to class each week!  Then something miraculous happened.  My fiancé had been suffering with two herniated discs and was receiving steroid injections on a regular basis in order to function.  We participated in two reformer classes each week and after a while he was no longer in pain!  During a follow up appointment with his doctor, the doctor said “what ever you are doing, keep doing it!”  That’s the moment I decided I would some day train and certify to teach pilates.  

In 2014 I began training to teach mat and reformer classes.  Shortly after that I decided that I could utilize my background as a registered nurse and pilates training to help individuals, like my husband, with injuries, so in 2015 I took my first Injuries and Special Populations course. In 2016 I certified through Stott Pilates in mat and reformer.  Since then, I’ve broadened my coursework and trained to teach ballet barre.  I love learning and can’t wait to continue my education in this field.  I hold a BS degree in nursing from the University of Wyoming.  My chosen specialty is cardiac electrophysiology.  I am also a Certified Cardiac Electrophysiology Specialist.  

My husband and I are parents to five beautiful children.  I’ve lived in Draper for 15 years and love our community!  It reminds me of the small town community feeling I experienced growing up in Wyoming.  I enjoy being outdoors and love to wakeboard, water ski, vacation, ride with my husband on his motorcycle, and do anything outdoors with my kids.

I’m so excited to share my passion with our community and can’t wait to see all of you at the studio!!
