With science + Human design guiding your health, your most energetic and healthy mind+body+soul is possible.

steph dorworth

You're here because...

You're tired of feeling unmotivated and burnt out - lacking energy to get through the day. You're exhausted from trying out every diet, every workout, and not seeing any weight loss results. You're sick of looking in the mirror and hating what you see.

To embody your higher self (the best version of you) you need a customized program in place to improve your metabolism and health rituals. A customized program that not only helps you be more mindful with your energy, exercise, and eating but also goes deeper: addressing your beliefs, identity, and soul. 

Introducing the Fit by Design method

Unlike any other traditional coaching program, the Fit by Design method doesn't require more of your time + energy - it actually requires more effective use of less time + energy!

Human design is a self awareness tool that will help you align your mind, body, and soul with your goals. It uses your birth location and time to determine how the solar system and star fields were aligned at the precise moment of your birth. Your chart can build awareness about who you were born to be, how you can best use your energy, what strategy to use for decision making, what digestion style is ideal for you, & more! 

I help high performing, ambitious women over 35 years old shift their mindset, restore their metabolism, enjoy eating again, build a customized exercise routine, & feel more energized than ever!

The Fit by Design metabolism method will teach you how to improve stress management, increase thermogenesis (from eating + exercise), and honor your menstrual cycle.

Meet your Coach

Hi, I'm Dr. Steph! After going through some gut health struggles and personal trauma, I felt numb & lost…unsure of who I was and struggling to digest foods well. After years of healing work, I found my direction with Human Design and it elevated my health. I went from physically healthy to mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy, too. 

As a 3/5 sacral Generator (in Human Design) I am equipped to guide you with a positive vibe. As a 3 enneagram I'll bring the energy and caring spirit to our calls together. As a Dr of Physical therapy with certifications in strength, mobility, and pilates, I'll guide you by taking a holistic approach to your health. Your transformation is a puzzle that I'm excited to solve by getting to know you deeper!

What it’s Like to Work with Me

Through coaching on a deeper level, you'll learn to release old limiting beliefs, build back up new beliefs, magnify your gratefulness, and expand your capacity to receive gifts from the Universe. But I’m not just about positive energy, manifesting, & meditating. I’m also a total queen of writing effective workouts and finding the right flexibility in your eating to help you improve your metabolism for long-term results. I’ve been a Doctor of Physical therapy since 2012 and coaching women online since 2012. 

My coaching clients results: 

20 pounds lost here, 30 pounds lost here, 4 inches around the waist lost here, 50 pounds in strength gained here, and another that dropped 5 dress sizes!

The physical results are fabulous, but they’re not the only thing I see changing in these women.

I also have women recovering from emotional eating, women getting over their fears of certain foods, women breaking their cardio addictions, women spending less time in the gym (and more time doing what they love), women gaining the confidence to wear shorts again (after ten years of fearing it), women loving how they look in the mirror again, women breaking the yo-yo dieting cycle, women coming back from trips without feeling like they got “off track”, and women feeling less aches and pains.

What Fit by Design Clients Are Saying

Marinna M.

"Steph was fabulous to work with - super organized, quick to respond, and kind. I signed up for coaching with her in large part because I needed the accountability and she definitely provided that. I also loved how all of her recommendations and programming was science- and evidence-based!"

Rachel M.

"Working with Steph over the past 1.5 years has not only helped me reach my goals to compete, but I have also reached a point of consistency with exercise and nutrition that I could not do on my own. Her guidance, honesty, and knowledge has been so beneficial. Having a coach that tailors a plan specifically to you has been wonderful! She is always available if I have a question and is amazing to work with!"

Mackenzie S.

"Beginning this program has required some directions that feels counter-intuitive to what mainstream media has historically drilled into women about how it's done. Things like eating ~2,000 Calories a day and no cardio. Prior to beginning this program, I would've taken reactionary measures to these ideas, given in to a binge, or taken a long break from monitoring nutrition. Trusting your expertise and process has made it a lot easier!"

Don't just take my word for it...

I learned how to be in complete control of my health. I can enjoy my weekends, family gatherings, nights out, etc. without anxiety that I am being unhealthy or am sabotaging my diet. For me, it took a few months of working with Steph to get to that point but my only regret is that I didn’t work with her sooner. I am so thankful I found her and chose to work with her!

What's holding you back from being the most fearless + confident version of yourself? 


You've tried all the diet & workout trends, but nothing sticks. What works for your friend doesn't work for you. You're afraid to commit to another program only to fail again. Listen up: there's no one-size-fits-all. Having an expert tailor an enjoyable program to you will yield the best results.


You're busy, I get it! You don't have time for unrealistically long workouts & hours of cardio. I don't either! Listen up: a short, effective workout is better than a long, poorly programmed workout. You can get great results with shorter home or gym workouts and cardio sprinkled in - only as needed.


Do you love your wine to wind down at night, your date nights out for dinner, or getting to celebrate with friends? Listen up: you can stay on track if you plan ahead. I'll guide you with that. You're capable of enjoying life...even while losing weight.

Take a Look at these Transformations

I've worked with many coaches before and this time was different in the best of ways. 

elizabeth r.

Not only did Steph take the time to get to know me in the initial call, but I could tell she truly cared. I had heard of HD but never took the time to learn about it. She made it simple to understand and opened my eyes to a whole new me. As a projector type I realized I was trying so hard to keep up with everyone around me: their regular regimented workouts, constant activity, and structured meals. Projectors don't operate like that, so now I know why I was failing over and over again! I learned to honor my energy levels each day and what instinct to listen to for decision making regarding my health. She gave me workouts and nutritional guidance at top shelf material - completely tailored to my needs. And then I got to follow them at my own pace based on my energy each day. The checkins help me stay on track and the support is unparalleled. This is the longest I've stuck to anything of this nature.

For me, it took a few months of working with Steph to get to that point but my only regret is that I didn’t work with her sooner. I am so thankful I found her and chose to work with her! Absolutely!

8-Week Prep

"Steph has been awesome to prep with. She helped me get stage lean in under 8 weeks without going to any extremes. She mixed up exercises regularly which really helped keep me motivated. Thanks to Steph I took the stage with a physique I was proud of." Megan placed in both of her 2021 shows - third in open!

Megan M.

Bikini Contest Prep Coaching

I loved working with Steph because she checked off every box that I was looking for in a coach! She had the same belief system as me as life is about balance! And you can get to where you want even with that balanced lifestyle! I was able to keep my social life and achieve my dream body!! I placed 3rd in my first bikini competition!! She made it fun for me and was always quick to responses. She has given me so much knowledge! I cannot wait to compete again come November and work with her again to come out on top! Thanks so much Steph for everything!

Shelby vezina

Coaching Client

"Steph is supportive, has a great understanding of me, my lifestyle and goals. We have a great relationship and I simply trust her expertise. At 53 she helped get me stage ready for my 1st bikini comp. I would recommend Steph to anyone looking to improve their fitness, weight loss or muscle gain. She’s a trained physiotherapist too which is useful."

Tracey placed 1st in her first show to nationally qualify!


Coaching Client

"Working with Steph has been an amazing experience. She helped me attain my goal of hitting the stage. She was always there with alternative exercises to adjust to the available equipment at my gym and always responded promptly. With her knowledge and guidance she provided me with the confidence I needed to control my own eating and push myself to new limits. I cannot thank her enough! "

Veronica B.

"Working with Steph over the past 1.5 years has not only helped me reach my goals to compete, but I have also reached a point of consistency with exercise and nutrition that I could not do on my own. Her guidance, honesty, and knowledge has been so beneficial in competing, strength, and nutrition. Having a coach that tailors a plan specifically to you has been wonderful!

[Jenna placed third in her first bikini competition at 40 years old]


Coaching Client

"The Beautiful To The Core Bikini Competition Prep changed my life. I participated in an 11 week prep and made the most progress in that short of time than I ever have on my own! Everything was broken down for me so everything was easy to follow. I will be recommending this program to others while continuing on my fitness journey!"

[Kendra lost 14lbs for her first bikini competition prep!]

Kendra M.

Coaching Client

"Steph has been amazing. Very easy to contact, always getting back right away. Always asking how things are going. I have made amazing progress in such a short amount of time through her coaching. I will definitely be using Steph as a coach again for my next prep. "

[She lost 20lbs and 3.5in around her waist for her first bikini competition]

Alicia G.

Coaching Client

"Working with Steph using the Beautiful to the Core prep was a great experience. She was prompt, professional, super pleasant, and always supportive. Not only did her plan get me the body I had been striving to achieve, but Steph was there to make adjustments and help me through."

Terra D.

Coaching Client

[9mo fat loss progress: down 15lbs and 3.5in around her waist]

Ami C.

Coaching Client

"For everyone out there wanting to compete in a bikini competition or if you have just been thinking about it, Beautiful to the Core is your best online resource. Steph is amazing and very knowledgeable in every aspect of competing. I'm glad I had her with me each step of the way."

-Carrie placed 5th at her first bikini competition

Carrie R.

Coaching Client

"I am beyond impressed with my results. Steph has been such a great support system, championing me along the way, taking everything into account - my workouts at a local gym, to how I look in my biweekly check-ins, and how I am doing mentally and emotionally. She really has been such a wonderful asset to my programming. In my opinion, the results speak for themselves!"

[6 month fat loss progress: down 6.5lbs and 4.5in around her waist]

Laurie B. , Advertising

Coaching Client

"I had a wonderful experience being coached by Stephanie for my first competition. Every check-in we collaborated and adjusted my macros to ensure that I would be my most lean on show day, always taking into account how I was feeling and how my body was responding. Having her guidance through the process was incredibly beneficial, as I would have been guessing what to do if I had tried to prep on my own."

-She placed first in her very first bikini competition


Coaching Client

"It has been a pleasure to be a part of the team. Steph has not only helped me achieve my weight loss goal, but she has reignited my passion for fitness and helped me establish a healthy relationship with food. I couldn't be happier with my results. In 7 months I was able to lose over 20 pounds and win two first place trophies at my first bikini competition!"

Melissa T.

Coaching Client

"Online coaching with Steph has been amazing and eye opening. I’m a nurse and thought I understood how to live a healthy lifestyle but found myself consistently gaining weight and didn’t know what to change. Steph gave me all the tools and guidance I needed to make those changes, and I feel so much better mentally and physically. I’m so happy I chose to work with Steph so now I know how to effectively maintain a healthy lifestyle!"

[6 month fat loss progress: Down 13lbs and 4in around her waist]

Nikki , Nurse

Coaching Client

"Working with Steph during my Bikini Competition Prep was one of the best experiences that I have had. Online Coaching with Steph has been as feasible as it would be in-person. She truly cares, shows tough-love, and she is with you every step of the way. She has a talent for creating fun & effective programs to ensure that you personally enjoy them. Despite working out, her nutritional guidance was no cookie-cutter plan. She specializes in flexible dieting which makes the journey enjoyable and achievable! Steph is the Coach that everyone needs. I learned, grew, and loved myself more than ever by having her as my Coach!"

Dakota Brown , Personal Trainer

Coaching Client

I'm truly enjoying this process. It's been eye opening as far as diet goes. I definitely plateaued in my training before and wondered why but now I understand that my diet was a huge roadblock. Week after week it's getting easier to fuel my body instead of eating the junk that I was before. Thank you for your help!

Who is Fit by Design for?

Anyone over 16 years old can join! Most ideal for women who want to dive deeper into a healthier version of themselves and find the time to love their body again. As long as you're open to going deeper on your health & fitness journey. The lifting club option is best for those of you who don't want the accountability or relationship of coaching and are more independent with your health. Learn more about the CLUB here.

The VIP option you've read about on this page is best for those of you who want it all - fully customized and fully supervised. This is where you'll get the best results.

How long do the workouts take?

VIP client workouts are customized so will vary. In general, I prefer my clients train 3-5x/week for under an hour, but I'm open to being flexible on an individual basis.

Do I have to have a gym membership? What equipment is needed?

The VIP workouts are fully customized so there are no requirements. In fact, if you want to train at home with no equipment at all, we can make that work. Although most people will benefit from workouts using more load and equipment, I am flexible and understand that training at home is more realistic for many people. I may recommend a few small pieces to invest in for more effective workouts.

What's the onboarding process like once I enroll?

As soon as you enroll, you'll immediately receive a welcome email leading you step-by-step in how to get prepared for your coaching journey. There will be some things to sign, a form to fill out, and a link to book your video call with me. All Fit by Human Design members receive membership into my app where the workouts and messaging are done after that - all in one place. All workouts are delivered within the app with a video for each exercise provided as well as prescribed # sets, reps, and rest periods. You can track the workouts within the app, rate them, and take notes on them. If you're prescribed macros, those are synced to the app. Habits and goals are also in the app for us to work toward together.

How are check-ins done for VIP?

Check-ins are done YOUR way. Everyone has different desires from coaching, so I'll do check-ins whatever way you feel are best for you. Traditionally I send a check-in form and reply in the app messages. However, if you prefer voice memo checkins, phone call checkins, or video call check-ins instead I'm down with that. 

What if I want 1-on-1 coaching for a bikini competition?

Yes, I still offer specialty bikini contest prep coaching, but I've now pivoted into a more holistic and sustainable style of coaching. Learn about my traditional bikini contest prep coaching here. I'd especially love to work with you for a few months after your show to reverse diet, improve your metabolism, combat any disordered eating that may have developed, and transition you back into a regular, health routine. Learn about my post-competition Bikini & Beyond coaching here.
