“Above All Else...Is The Fight.” - Stephanie Jones, Co-Owner & CEO

 

Bio:

Hi! My name is Stephanie Jones and I am co-owner and CEO of Grit II Valor and we are extremely excited/ honoured to be a part of the Dynamis Team! 

I was born in Newmarket (Ontario), but moved to Regina (Saskatchewan) shortly after.  A place I’ve now called home for the past 24 years. I have been actively involved in sports my whole life. I was always on the move growing up and I was always finding new ways to challenge myself. 

Growing up I was a competitive swimmer with the Dolphins Swim Club, a competitive volleyball player with the RADZ and RVC volleyball clubs, recreationally played hockey, baseball and football, and I danced competitively with Applause Dance Studio. My love of dance eventually took to me to New York City in 2005, where I trained with the Hip Hop Dance Conservatory for 5 years (moving my way up through the ranks from Dancer in Training to Principle Dancer).

The Conservatory’s daily physically demanding workouts and hip hop/breaking conditioning classes had me falling in love more and more with training and physical education every day.  So eventually, while I continued my education in dance, I too began to pursue my new love of fitness with the American Academy of Personal Training.  With my certification in hand, I then returned to Regina in 2010 and began my career as a  Certified Personal Trainer with Gold’s Gym.

In 2013, I decided to take on a new challenge and compete in my very first show as a bikini and fitness model competitor in the all natural UFE No Mercy competition.  After placing in both divisions and earning my way into an Elite Competitor status, I was instantly hooked.  I absolutely love to compete.  I love the process, the hard work involved in preparing for a show, the dedication, the discipline and the focus. And I love to see where one can take their body with a consistent, positive and unwavering mindset. I have competed in 4 different shows and I am now a UFE judge!

In 2013, I also met my co-owner, business partner, swoll sister and fellow CEO Laurin Holhoyi!!! Our mutual love of fitness, movement, healthy lifestyles, adventurous minds and training led us to create our Grit II Valor brand and company!

Fitness is my life and I love to help others.  I look to educate, motivate and share my experiences so that I may inspire others to pursue their own dreams and goals!
