Stephanie Roop

Personal Trainer

Playing sports has always been a big part of my life, particularly basketball. It was in middle school that I first realized I could turn my passion for sports and exercise into a career while attending a sports performance facility. I began my college career at Albion College, where I was a member of the women’s basketball program for 2 years. An injury ended my career and lead me to transfer back home and finish up my degree at Grand Valley State University.

After finishing up classes at Grand Valley, I landed an internship at Body By Choice. During my internship I learned about the principles and methods Body By Choice uses to cultivate the gift of life through health and wellness. I was then able to start applying this knowledge and gain valuable experience in the training sessions with clients throughout my internship. As a result, I was hired on as a personal trainer in April 2019, and I am incredibly grateful to join the team at Body By Choice.

Outside of work, basketball still plays a big role in life. I began coaching at the age of 15, and I currently coach at a local high school.
