Steph Gaudreau helps women build stronger bodies and minds + own their inner power.
Steph combines a formal education in biology / human physiology (BS Biology—Human Physiology), 12 years of science teaching experience (MA—Education and National Board Certification), holistic nutrition training (Certified Holistic Nutrition Practitioner, currently enrolled in Nutritional Therapy Consultant program), and an unabashed love of tasty Paleo food (human with taste buds) on her blog, Stupid Easy Paleo.
Steph’s mission is to provide the most kickass, inspirational strategies for building a stronger body, mind, and spirit.
She wrote the best-seller The Paleo Athlete: A Beginner’s Guide to Real Food for Performance in 2014, and her award-winning book, The Performance Paleo Cookbook: Recipes for Eating Better, Getting Stronger & Gaining the Competitive Edge (Page Street Publishing, 2015). She’s working on a new book that will be out in May 2019.
Steph has a chart-topping podcast, Harder to Kill Radio, where she talks all things fitness, nutrition and mindset about how to build unbreakable humans, and she’s the creator of the wildly popular Women’s Strength Summit.
In addition, Steph’s an international speaker on the subjects of nutrition and strength training, giving talks at PaleoFX, AHS, and AHS New Zealand. Steph’s been recognized in the media by publications such as Outside Magazine, Triathlete and SELF, has appeared on ESPN Radio, and her blog was named by Greatist as one of its 15 Must-Read Health and Happiness blogs of 2016.
Her dedication to learning the finer points of sport is evident in her numerous coaching certifications such as USA Weightlifting Level 1 and multiple CrossFit disciplines, including Level 1. She’s competed in everything from endurance mountain biking to CrossFit (SoCal Regionals 2013) and now weightlifting where she earned qualification to the American Open in 2014. In addition to competing, Steph coaches weightlifting at CrossFit Fortius in San Diego and has coached CrossFit in gyms reaching from Scotland to SoCal.
She lives in San Diego with the loves of her life, her Scottish husband Z and her cat Ellie. When she’s not lifting heavy stuff, you can find her tending to her garden, standing on the dining room table to get the perfect food photo shot, and reading nerdy science books.
