Strength and conditioning coach Joe DeFranco spoke about her progress. He works with her twice a week and is also working with Triple H. He said: "Steph's body has gone through a major transformation since we started training together. Old wrestling injuries, childhood dance, and being a mother of three created some negative adaptations in her body, which resulted in shoulder, hip, knee and ankle problems. Because of this, my top priority was to get her body functioning and feeling better. To accomplish this, I started training her like an athlete. The goal was to get her body working as a whole, as opposed to separate parts. The program I designed for Steph, coupled with her consistent hard work and attention to detail, have been a recipe for success. She can now train without limitations, while also being stronger and leaner!"
Stephanie gained 140 lbs after having her first two kids, and told writer Matt Meinrod: "Matt, I can honestly tell you, at 36 years old and after having 3 kids, I'm in the best shape of my life. And the best part is that I keep getting stronger."
