About Coach

My name is Stephanie Kracht. I was born and raised in Beresford, SD. I graduated from the University of South Dakota with a bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in gerontology in May of 2023. I’ve always known that I wanted to help people in some capacity. At first I thought it would be in the capacity as an Occupational Therapist, but after much thought and shadowing I realized this was not my calling. It wasn’t until the summer of 2023 that I began to ponder a career in personal training after my husband suggested I look into it, as it would combine my love for working out and my passion for helping people. After researching gyms in my area to speak with about personal training and what it all entailed, I stumbled across Empower Fitness and was amazed by the camaraderie, the open, judgment-free atmosphere, and the obvious love and passion the coaches shared. Niki and the staff at Empower Fitness allowed me to shadow, co-teach and observe while I decided if this path was the correct one for me. During my brief time at Empower as an observer, it became clear to me that this is my dream and have been blessed with the opportunity to learn and hone my skills while helping women at Empower Fitness as a Group Fitness Coach as well as a personal trainer.
