Stephanie Barry

Stephanie has been enthusiastic about health and fitness since a young age. Growing up, she was a multi-sport athlete, which led to her playing field hockey at the collegiate level. Her passion for fitness drew her to Bridgewater State University, where she graduated Suma Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in exercise science in 2010. After moving to Connecticut in 2013, she worked alongside Coach Durrett as an assistant strength and conditioning coach for Trinity College.

After years of playing sports and training, Stephanie had experienced a few injuries along with some aches and pains. She found relief through massage therapy and wanted to learn how to use this modality, along with exercise and nutrition, to help others. She enrolled in Massage Therapy School with Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy (now Cortiva Institute) to help people move and feel better and has recently finished her program there.

In addition to being a licensed massage therapist, Steph holds the distinction of being a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist under the National Strength and Conditioning Association, which is one of their highest honors. She is also certified with USA Weightlifting, Precision Nutrition and a Level 2 RPR Coach.
