Hi, I’m Stephanie Check, the better half of Justin Check (just kidding!). I started in the personal training industry when I was only 18 years old and have had a deep appreciation for health and wellness ever since. I was competitive in tennis and running as a teenager and also very dedicated to boxing and weight lifting. With chronic knee issues, I turned to strength training instead of surgery and have seen the benefits of exercise and clean eating throughout the last two decades. I love working with all types of clients who are embarking or elevating their health journey. I’m a NSCA certified personal trainer and certified Spinning instructor. I’ve been blessed to have two healthy & fit pregnancies and postnatal journeys and specialize in helping women with their prenatal/postnatal personal training. Whether you’re brand new to fitness or an established athlete I look forward to helping you meet your next goal. Please email me with any questions you have or to get your training program started.
Check Total Health makes working out and getting fit CONVENIENT! All training options and packages can be done at home or at any indoor or outdoor destination of your choice. Check Total Health is Southwest Florida’s premier mobile personal training company servicing Bonita Springs, Estero, Fort Myers and Cape Coral.
Personal Training: Get the personal attention you need from a fitness professional who truly cares about your results. You’ll receive a customized exercise program with workouts designed around your schedule, health needs, and fitness goals – implemented in a one-on-one setting. It’s an ideal approach for those with special needs, chronic health issues, limited exercise experience, pregnant women or anyone who prefers a more intimate training setting. We begin with a brief consultation to go over your health history, exercise history, and what you wish to accomplish while training. The first workout is an assessment of your current condition and tests for thresholds, strengths, weaknesses, and proportionate/relative strength – that way we can track your progress over time. We’ll keep your health issues and fitness goals in mind throughout your training regimen that will be progressive in nature, but scaled accordingly. Anyone committed to a personal training package also gets FREE nutrition coaching throughout the process.
Group Training: Have friends or family members looking to get more fit too? Group training is affordable and fun! With music blasting and a wide variety of exercise stations that continuously mix up the workouts, everyone participating is sure to be motivated and have a good time! Group training is best suited for those who have at least moderate exercise experience and can maintain proper form in a group setting. The workouts typically start with a warm-up of stretching, Pilates, and light aerobics. Then we move on to a full-body circuit of various exercise stations that include lower body, upper body and total body exercises, functional movements, power movements, and cardiovascular exercises. To finish, we cool down with some ab/core exercises. Not to worry, there are appropriately timed breaks throughout the workout! Group training workouts can also be customized to your group’s liking and fitness goals…just ask! For those looking to push their body to the next level and get quick results, we also offer higher intensity boot-camps and cross-fit style workouts.
Corporate Wellness: Get your employees and co-workers exercising! More and more companies are reaping the benefits of offering wellness initiatives at the workplace. The numbers have shown time and time again that healthy employees are not only more productive, but also absent less due to illness and chronic health issues. You can help ensure that you’re getting the most out of your team by providing easy, accessible, and affordable fitness training options right on-site. We can offer various classes and personal/small group training options, as well nutrition counseling and office stretching. We can also provide all the fitness equipment if needed. Please contact Justin@check-yourself.com to setup a consultation.
Youth Training: It’s estimated that 33% of American adolescents are obese. Put the video games to bed and let’s wake our kids up! Youth workouts can be designed simply to keep your kids interested and involved in staying active and exercising regularly or to help condition them for a particular sport. The workouts can include outdoor activities, sport-related exercises, and physical education. We also encourage and educate kids and teens on healthy eating habits throughout the process.

Always be grateful for today and remember that it is a privilege to exercise your body, mind, and soul.
*individual results may vary
Your 8-week challenge begins with a questionnaire to gather information on your history, current health/eating habits, goals, weekly schedule, and food preferences/tastes. Your custom meal plan is tailored to your specific needs based on the information given and then adjusted based on results and feedback. Once you’ve reviewed your plan, we setup a phone call (1-1.5 hours) to go over the education, objectives, and expectations.
The goal is to build you a daily menu of foods that you can feasibly execute and that also adheres to the discussed guidelines and principles of your custom meal plan. We provide shopping, prepping, and cooking guidance to help you prepare and execute your custom meal plan. We also discuss and address the eating habits that are negatively impacting your weight/health and develop a plan on how to transition to a better balance of eating.
The main objective is to have a smart, well-balanced meal plan for you to follow 70-80% of the week that will optimize your metabolism and keep you in a good energy balance so you can “splurge” weekly while maintaining a healthy weight and good body composition. After all, life is short and we should get to indulge regularly and “have the best of both worlds” as much as possible! We must, however, be empowered and make sure we maintain good health/body composition in doing so.
The expectations of the 8-week challenge offer you a much higher chance of being successful. Over the course of the 8-weeks, you will receive nutrition coaching as needed to help you through the transition period of executing your plan and establishing the new habits. We offer numerous resources to help you with this in a way that works for you. You will also be asked to weigh-in via text every Friday morning for accountability by taking a picture of your weigh-in and sending it for review. When results are hindered or lacking, we setup a phone call if needed to discuss the issues that are sabotaging your results.
On average, people who do the 8-week challenge lose 11-12% of their body weight; however, many have lost much much more! You also learn a tremendous amount about nutrition and the science-based approaches to eating that have proven time and time again to be the most sustainable and effective practices to reaching your highest potential of results!
**All meal plan meetings/coaching are done via the phone and web**
Whether you’re local in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Estero, or Bonita Springs or live outside of sunny Southwest Florida, Check Total Health can help with all of your nutrition needs wherever you may be! Meal plan packets can be requested by emailing: Justin@check-yourself.com

It's not that some people have will power and some don't. It's just that some people are ready to change and others are not.
You will get out of it what you put into it! Individual results may vary, but if you consistently work hard and stay focused the results will come. Here are a few of our favorite success stories:
This is Jane Herron, she is strong mentally and physically. Beating breast cancer twice in her life there is no challenge she is not capable of conquering. Most recently, she committed to 8 weeks of a rigorous workout routine and meal plan. The results speak for themselves – 3 inches from her waist, nearly 12 lbs, and 2 pant sizes. “I knew the body composition was going to be my biggest change. The pics really show it! Stephanie and Justin, with their wealth of knowledge and unending encouragement, were my ace in the hole!”
Mike Bettiga gave us 6 weeks of dedication and hard work. He lost 24 pounds, 6% body fat, 3 inches from his chest, 5 inches from his waist and 2 inches from his hips while his arms and legs maintained their size. The perfect scenario for his goals and strength training program design. Way to go Mike! “Stephanie and Justin have been amazing to work with. I have struggled for years in keeping my weight in check even when following a regular fitness schedule. Through their help and support, I have now learned a totally new and disciplined food and meal plan that coupled with strength and cardio training, has allowed me to attain a goal that I never thought I could possibly achieve. This is a lifestyle change that I can comfortably use both now and in the future and it would not have been possible without their guidance, encouragement and support!”
Say hello to Toby Sansom who lost that LAST 8 pounds to feel and look her very best. Those last 5-10 pounds don’t have to stick around. They can be shed and we know how to do it! “I wanted to thank you for the past 8 weeks. You are a true motivator. One of my goals was to get back on track with my physical activity and my food intake. I feel I have been quite successful in these areas. This wasn’t about a diet – but about a lifestyle change! For this I can’t thank you enough. My other goal was to wear my jeans with a belt and my shirt tucked in, and feel good about that. Sitting at the airport with my jeans and belt on and my shirt tucked in. Loving it!”
Let’s put our hands together for Vickie Seeger who completely transformed her composition in just 4 months. Vickie lost 20 pounds, 2.5 inches in her chest, 3 inches in her waist, 2 inches in her hips and 2 inches in each thigh. She also realized a 24mg/dL drop in her cholesterol during this time period! “Stephanie and Justin were easy to work with and provided excellent and informative guidance on how to make the changes that provided positive results. I am amazed at how easy the meal plan is to follow and the healthy weight loss that started on week 1 and continued each week after. Stephanie is professional and very friendly at the same time and wants everyone to have a safe and excellent workout. Justin incorporates a wide variety of movements which makes for a tremendous total body workout. Thanks to the direction from Stephanie and Justin, I exceeded my weight loss goals and can’t thank them enough for their guidance, support and continued encouragement!”
“Meet James Sharpe, a long distance meal plan client who has absolutely crushed his goals and transformed his body, WOWSER!!. Here is an excerpt from his testimonial: “I had been struggling with my weight for many years. I got myself into the constant cycle of fad diets. All I did was fluctuate up and down and every time my weight would go back up, it would even increase beyond where I was before I had tried the fad diet. 2 years ago I started working out 6 times a week but knew I needed to support my exercise regime with a structured meal plan. I started talking to Justin Check about what I should be eating and making it achievable within my stressful working week. He developed a meal plan that was easy to understand and achievable with my busy work and social life. It has been 2 years I have lost over 30 pounds and have improved my body composition month by month!”
Say hello to Chelsey Scheiner, a FIT pregnant woman! “I started looking online for prenatal/maternity workout classes around town, but really couldn’t find anything! Then luckily I stumbled across Stephanie’s own pregnancy blog on her website, which is how I came to find out about Check Total Health. Our first personal training session was when I was 17 weeks pregnant, and I was hooked. Stephanie has been amazing to work with. First of all, the mobile personal training they offer is an incredible opportunity. It makes working out so convenient, there really isn’t an excuse to not do it. She was able to work around my sometimes crazy work schedule and we fit in about 2 sessions per week. Also, I had so much faith in her to train me during my pregnancy because she had just gone through the same thing about 5 months earlier. I trusted her to design the workouts to fit my ever-changing pregnancy body and energy level. Plus it was really fun to be able to share my first-time-mom-to-be journey with her, every week was a new and exciting milestone! She seemed as excited about my pregnancy week by week as I was! The workouts were tough but great. I could feel myself getting stronger every week. I kept thinking how crazy it was that I felt like I was getting abs yet growing a big baby belly at the same time! I am very proud of myself for committing to this workout routine during my pregnancy. At a time when I could have easily let myself go, I feel like I did the opposite and I have had a fantastic pregnancy because of it. I have gained 30 pounds and I am really happy with that. I am 39 weeks pregnant and just finished my last session with Stephanie before the baby comes. I am so happy that I found her! She has helped me stay strong and flexible and healthy all the way through this pregnancy. Now all that’s left is to welcome this baby into the world! Thanks again, Steph! Looking forward to our post-baby workouts next!”
A big congratulations to Martha Jakowlew who lost nearly 18 pounds and 10% of her body weight in only 8 weeks. “THANK YOU for motivating me to be healthier and more fit. I came in with a goal in mind and I achieved it. You kept me accountable and supported me every step of the way.”
Say hello to Tristan Chapman, an avid cyclist and former professional beach volleyball player. Tristan embarked on a 7 week mission to follow a Check Total Health meal plan and take Stephanie Check’s indoor cycling classes a few times each week. In addition, he lifted weights and cycled outside. In 7 weeks Tristan lost 26 pounds. Here’s what he has to say about it: “Thanks for putting together a successful program that helped me achieve my goals. It’s been hard work but you made it fun too! Your food program & recipes did the trick as my wife also lost weight. (She looks great!) We are leaving today for our anniversary cruise and it’s good timing to look and feel so healthy again. We’re both appreciative of your energy and expertise and plan to continue working with you going forward.”
And here’s Eleanor Snedden‘s success: “I joined a weight loss and fitness challenge hosted by Check Total Health (CTH) as I was overweight and my blood sugars were out of control. I knew this would be a great program to get me back on track with a proper eating and fitness plan. CTH encouraged all of us through the 8 week program and as a result, I’ve lost over 15 pounds and my blood sugars are back in the normal range. I want to thank CTH for the coaching they provided me as well as the other attendees. I’m sticking with their program as I feel great and want to lose more weight. Thanks CTH!”
This is Dot Boudreaux and her pictures are really incredible for just 8 weeks of hard work and healthy eating! “Just wanted to thank you for your guidance during the weight loss challenge. I had a back injury 2 years ago and exercise was limited. It’s been a long healing process, got back into yoga and spin. Then the challenge, thought I would sign up. Well I have to say I’ve never felt better! Cravings are down, the food plan is simple and it worked for me…finally shedding the weight that has been hanging on to me. Stephanie can’t do enough for you she is available for every question and totally supports you. Again I thank you I will continue losing until I get to my goal..Thank you!”
While it’s true that Stephanie Check is a Personal Trainer in Southwest Florida and has been working out for many years, she still has to put in the effort to overcome weight gain such as when she gave birth to our daughter, Liv. The first picture is Steph just one week after giving birth and the second picture is Steph 8 weeks later (9 weeks after giving birth). Steph followed a Check Total Health meal plan and worked out 5-6 days a week once given the OK from the doctor. In the 8 week period she lost 5 pounds, 8% body fat and put on a substantial amount of muscle.
