Stephanie Prem’s passion for Pilates stems from a 4 year rehab stint. A journey consisting of corrective exercise and Pilates. This all began in 2010, following a career ending back injury at the snowboarding World Cup finals in Italy.
In 2010, on her last run of the snowboarding season, Stephanie Prem lost a little part of her soul at the World Cup finals in Italy. She had just recovered from a heavy fall at the Vancouver Winter Olympics a couple of months earlier, where she’d suffered some rib damage. But Steph was determined to finish the season on a high.
After training all morning and running the course four times, Prem decided to attempt the last 18-metre jump, which was quite threatening. She knew the minute her board left the jump that something was wrong.
“I was already in the air, and I had enough time to think to myself, sh*t. I’m in trouble,” described Prem.
Stephanie Prem has trained and worked alongside some of Australia’s industry leaders, has 15 years dance experience and is clinically trained. She lives and breathes health, wellness and an active lifestyle. Smashed avo, froyo and heli-boarding enthusiast, Steph is a walking talking embodiment of survival.
