My name is Stef and I am the founder of Bear Well.
Growing up in a family of yoga teachers, holistic therapists, football players and rugby players, exercise and wellness has always played a huge role in my life. Although my career path took me into the world of fashion, to my friends I was always the go to person for the best fitness class recommendations and the latest in healthy eating. So much so that I started leading circuit classes for my friends in the park and was challenged to help one of my best friends to get in shape for her wedding. The reward of seeing my gals get fitter, stronger and healthier was the start of my journey to getting my personal training qualifications and embarking on a huge career change.
As the eldest of seven I have seen first hand how having a baby not only impacts on your life but also your body confidence and with so much conflicting, and subpar, guidance on how to keep fit I decided that I wanted to move into Pre and Post Natal fitness to make sure women had the best guidance and advice available.
I am incredibly passionate about keeping women healthy and, in particular, helping mums to stay strong and empowered throughout their pregnancy journey and beyond.
Positive powerful women are a magical thing and my mission is to create as many of them as possible.
