Client Testimonials


“I've had the pleasure of working with Alex through 2 of the most important times in my life. My time as a bride-to-be and my time as a mommy-to-be. When I was getting ready for my wedding, Alex helped me lose 20lbs and tone up so I could be the FIT bride I had always dreamed of being. When I found out I was pregnant, I again called Alex for support. She provided me with all the resources and information I needed to have a healthy pregnancy.She even helped me deal with my horrible morning sickness by using homeopathic remedies - thank you for that! And now that I'm a proud mommy, she's helping me get my pre-baby physique back. Alex is a wealth of knowledge and she is one of the best motivators I have ever met. She's made a big difference in my life.”

“Fit Life Hawaii has taken my training to the next level! Alex is an awesome teacher and really knows how to target the areas that I need to work on. She also has a vast knowledge of nutrition and healthy living. As a competitive outrigger canoe paddler, training at Fit Life Hawaii has helped me to increase my endurance, strength and stamina in preparation for big races like the Molokai solo crossing. Alex's support helps me to focus my training and keep my mind and body balanced.”

“From the start of our first meeting I knew I had found someone who would really listen to me and care about what I was saying. Alex helped me set goals that were achievable. She offered sage advice that really made a difference in my life. She helped me change aspects of my lifestyle, which lead to a healthier and happier me. I looked forward to each of our sessions, knowing that she really cared about me and my success. Even after our time together was over, Alex followed up with me to make sure I was staying on course. This went above and beyond what she needed to do and I was so touched by her sincere, caring attitude. Alex Steppe is someone who can make a difference in your life and your health. It was never like "working" with her as much as it was sharing and learning. Anyone who has Alex on their team will come out better person.”

“I was blessed to have Alex as my health coach from 2012-2014. I am 5’7”, type 1 diabetic for 20+ years, and my weight in 2012 was 160 lbs. I have struggled for years to maintain a healthy weight despite daily exercise and watching what I eat. Alex encouraged me to try different foods to balance my meals. She introduced me to different protein sources, new recipes and helped me spice up my fitness with Tabata and weight training to build muscle and strengthen my core. She also introduced me to helpful online resources and apps to download on my iPhone to keep track of exercise, calories and to help keep me motivated. To relieve stress, she introduced me to deep breathing and meditation. We set goals together that were attainable and she always summarized our sessions in a follow-up email. I loved that she really listened to me and took a personal interest in my life. Having Alex as my health coach the last 2 years has benefited me greatly. This year I will be celebrating the BIG 60 happier, healthier and trimmer at 138 pounds!”

“When I started working with Alex I was completely out of control. I was eating everything in sight and not exercising at all. Needless to say, one bad decision was leading to another! In our first session she put me at ease and did not condemn me for being where I was, at this point in my life. I was in my late 50s and 40 pounds overweight! I didn’t want to be that person anymore, but I did not have the willpower to change things on my own. Alex taught me one bad decision for the day doesn't have to result in bad decisions all day. I had not exercised in years because I was no longer able to do the activities I did in my 30's. Somehow this discouraged me from doing anything physical at all. Alex taught me to start small with my goal setting and build on those small accomplishments to create bigger-picture changes. Now I’m making healthier choices and exercising regularly. I have lost 20 pounds so far! I still struggle at times, but thanks to Alex I'm so much better at picking myself up and keeping in mind that it’s one healthy decision at a time.”

“My first impression of Alex was that of a warm yet professional woman, who seemed genuinely interested in me as a person. It was obvious that she was not just going through a script and writing down my answers. She was actually LISTENING to me. She established a strong working plan of action to improve my overall health. During our time together my dear mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. My life had been turned upside down! Alex displayed such wisdom throughout this ordeal. She reminded me that I needed to take care of myself so I could care for my Mom. She was so very compassionate and understanding, and it meant more than the world to me. This, combined with her professionalism and knowledge, in my opinion is the perfect description of an effective life and health coach. I treasure our time together and feel as though I have made a lifelong friend.”

“My goal was to lose 90lbs and complete a 5k. My confidence in myself was at an all time low and I had no idea where to begin making changes. Should I cut out carbs or meat? Should I drink diet soda or avoid artificial sweeteners? I felt like I had a grasp on what was right and wrong, but I was overwhelmed by the internet and needed someone to guide me though this whole process. Working with Alex changed my life. I am so grateful to her for making this journey more meaningful than point systems and meal replacements. Everything we did was specific to me and my journey. She helped me address emotions and behaviors that got me into this mess in the first place. For the first time I'm not worried about gaining my weight back. I'm physically able to keep up with my kids. I actually feel like I'm a good example for them now. 2 years ago I was a different person. Today, I'm 98lbs down and I have completed 2 5k's and a 10k. Nothing can stop me now! Thank you Alex!”

“I was always the big guy and I used to be fine with that. I made jokes about my size to make others laugh and for the longest time I thought I really didn't care that I was the fat guy. When my health started to pay the price for my weight, I took a long hard look in the mirror. Threats of heart disease and diabetes kept me up at night. I heard about Alex through a friend, and calling her may have saved my life. I didn't realize the destructive path I was on. I was in complete denial. Having someone with the knowledge in nutrition, enthusiasm for fitness and patience to make miracles happen was exactly what the situation called for. I hadn't set foot in a gym in years because I was embarrassed at how out of shape I was. Alex introduced me to Tabata and helped me make small changes in my diet. For the first time I really listened to myself and what mattered to me. I found I actually had goals I wanted to accomplish and Alex helped me find the confidence to work towards them. I have lost 60lbs since we started working together. My energy level is incredible, my knees thank me every morning when I get out of bed and my confidence is much improved. Alex is quite the coach.”

“I've battled a severe case of IBS for years. I got to the point where I just accepted it as part of who I was. I started working with Alex for help getting more fiber in my diet, but what I actually achieved through working with her has blown my mind. Fiber wasn't the solution in my case. A specialized diet called FODMAP was. Since starting this plan with Alex, I've experienced a complete 180 in my symptoms. I've also started to train with her in the Fit Life Hawaii studio and she is a force to be reckoned with! I'm already gaining muscle mass. FLH is an untapped mine up Pupukea.”

“I love working out at Fit Life Hawaii! Alex's enthusiasm & energy really helps to keep me motivated. The Tabata method is fast and fits in perfect with myhectic schedule. Best of all, I am seeing way more results than with my typical cardio workouts, like jogging, in a fraction of the time. The metabolic testing she offers was really helpful for me, and actually showed that my optimal caloric intake for weight loss is much higher than I expected. Bottom line: I'm eating more, working out less. It's faster, more effective exercise with results I can see and no more starvation dieting! Thanks, Alex!”
