Stephanie McCarthy

Fitness has been a huge part of Stephanie’s life. She was a competitive gymnast for 10 years, dabbled in sports like powerlifting, cheerleading, and flag football through college, then turned crossfit athlete. As a regional and Games level crossfit athlete, she has had the invaluable opportunity to train with some of the most knowledgeable athletes and coaches in the country. 

Stephanie attended the University of Florida where she studied Applied Physiology and Kinesiology. Upon graduation she co-owned her first gym in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida in 2010. Four years later, Stephanie and her Fiance' Chris formed LIV Athletic to build active and socially connect lives through a family of training facilities.

Stephanie is the Director of the Swamp Challenge - a fitness competition held at the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, and is passionate about providing a platform for athletes to feel like rockstars and have the opportunity to test their fitness amongst their peers.
