Stephanie Rice, Fit Fab Life Founder
Stephanie was an extreme athlete from a very young age. If she wasn’t at school or work she was kicking butt on the softball field. She fell in love with health and wellness while working with a personal trainer during high school. This love led her to Jacksonville University where she graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science, Cum Laude, and received the Exercise Science Student of the Year award in 2008.
Stephanie more than understood the benefits of exercise, but the years of high intensity gym lifestyle was leaving her with hurting joints, and sore, tight muscles that made her miserable for days.
Then Stephanie tried a Pilates Reformer class
and her life was changed forever.
Stephanie could feel her body changing a little more after every session. Her sense of where her body was in space increased. She could feel her body balancing out, lengthening, and getting stronger without the miserable days to follow. Her body was finally functioning properly, leaving her with no more pain to manage everyday life.
This transformation turned into pursuing a Balanced Body Pilates certification and ultimately opening up Fit Fab Life. Her goal is to help those who want to find exercise and movement that make their bodies feel alive today so they can move better tomorrow.

Yoga has been transformational for Riley. What started as a hope to find a new movement practice, after she stopped dancing in college, became a deep appreciation for the inner work of yoga. As she dedicated herself to
practicing yoga, her sense of peace and grace expanded.
Riley completed her 200 hour YTT with Ember Hot Yoga in Woodstock, GA and started dreaming of sharing her love of yoga with as many people as possible.
You can expect her classes to be grounding with plenty of opportunities to challenge yourself. Each of her classes focuses on breathing and becoming more aware of how your body and mind respond to the movement.
Stephane views yoga as lengthening, strengthening and listening to music. It is that simple to him; he loves yoga. He believes yoga is an opportunity in self inquiry—
by continuing to come to the mat, your inquiry may grow into other areas of your life. He earned his 200 Hour YTT Certificate with Awakened Life School of Yoga, at Blue Spirit in Nosara, Costa Rica, and recently completed his 300 Hour YTT at Nexus Yoga Institute, also in Nosara. He is a 500 RYT registered with Yoga Alliance. He loves how individual a person’s practice can be – it can be on their own mat, chair, even in a group class. Stephane specializes in the ever-evolving practices of modern postural yoga and gentle vinyasa flow – he hopes to see you in class soon!
