Stephanie Smith

Background

Stephanie Smith is a New York native who caught the fitness bug while earning a master's in journalism at the University of Missouri. A life-long victim of the YMCA family package, she didn't learn to really love fitness until she entered the renowned Mizzou rec room. Her one true love: glow in the dark cycling.

After maxing out her need for (stationary) speed, Stephanie decided to hit the pavement and actually try and go somewhere by joining her first half-marathon training group. She ultimately decided to combine her love of journalism, fitness, and a conversational tone by writing for Blood, Sweat & Cheers, MensHealth.com, and Men's Health magazine. She hopes to bring this passion to Bodybuilding.com.
