Her day begins early, usually about 4:00am and during her backroads drive from her country farm to the Train Strong Fit gym she typically counts more deer than cars. It’s no surprise that when the first few members of Train Strong Fit walk into the door shortly after 5:00, Stephanie is bouncing on her toes and smiling from ear to ear, excited to see them. That energy continues throughout the day of classes and with personal training clients.

Her passion for health and fitness in her own life and those of her clients shines through in everything she does. She’s an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Functional Training Specialist and holds several nutrition certifications, so she helps clients with all areas of their wellness journey — whatever that may be. From athletes wanting to excel in their sport to those with pounds to lose, Stephanie is ready to help you set and achieve your individual goals.

Stephanie says “I love burpees” with a straight face. She means it. It’s not because they’re easy. They’re not. They’re a challenging exercise that work the whole body. But she didn’t lose 30 lbs and start her path to becoming a personal trainer from shying away from difficult exercises. This is the spirit she brings to her clients. She did it. So can you.


Stephanie Ward - owner & certified personal trainer



Casey has spent the last four years training, building, learning and loving TSF.  Working behind the scenes and training with the TSF family for so long, she suddenly felt the calling to become a trainer for Train Strong Fit. In addition to training clients, Casey also does ground work of business operations for TSF.  

She has a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and a thorough background in working out! Especially the “TSF way”! The Mechanicsville location is where Casey spends most of her time training classes. 

She’s enthusiastic, supportive, has a delightful sense of humor, loads of light-hearted sarcasm and puns, and isn’t afraid to bust out some moves for entertainment! Casey always strives to make her clients laugh and have fun while they are “dying” in class! Her personal motto is “mind over matter” and will always make sure a client is reaching their full potential in each workout. She’s the “best of both worlds”, since she brings the tough love as well as the fun.  Come see her and we’ll guarantee that you won’t leave a class without laughing and crying! 😉



LaDonna is a strong athlete and she loves bringing her own style and enthusiasm to our classes.  She is insanely dedicated to her own training program and that same drive transfers to her clients as well. She has been an athlete since high school and understands the specific needs of athletes.  She enjoys working with adults and our youth and keeps them smiling while they sweat!

LaDonna lives in Mechanicsville just down the street from TSF! Her family is also in Mechanicsville and provide her with a strong support system.  She is famous for her intense personal training and is always striving for her own personal bests!  She will help you to be stronger, more fit and show you how to properly execute the exercises during each and every workout.

Certified personal trainer and health coach



Her passion for health and fitness is a family affair. Like many, Genise started her wellness journey as a way to get healthier and positively impact those she loves, specifically her husband, son and two daughters. And she has – combined they have lost 100 pounds and have run countless races!

Within your first free week, you’ll probably hear from those at Train Strong Fit (TSF Nation) that Genise is the “nice” coach. She may have started that rumor. We’ll never really know. But beyond her perfectly coordinated workout attire and beaming smile is a tough trainer who loves new challenges. That’s why Genise spends her spare time researching new techniques and helping create workouts for TSF Nation. But don’t worry, if you’re sore the next day, she will be too as the TSF trainers complete the same workouts you do each day. I guess that’s where the “nice” part comes in – she sympathizes with you all while continuing to push you day in and day out to achieve your potential.

As an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Health Coach her motto is “Get Stronger, Live Better” and you can – at Train Strong Fit!
