Hello, my name is Terry Stevens. I have been married for 26 years to my wife Meredith. I have been a Personal Trainer for 16 years and I am certified through both the ACSM as a EP-C and NASM as a CPT. I left the ship repair field in 1999 after 22 years to focus my energy and my passion into the health and fitness field. I have worked with many clients over the years ranging in age from 12-87, all looking to improve their lifestyle and physical capabilities. Whether the clients goal is weight loss, core strength, cardiovascular endurance, sport specific, flexibility, nutritional guidance and/or strength training, every aspect of the fitness program will be adjusted and monitored to achieve their specific goal. I take pride in the results and transformation of my clients and work with diligence to make their goals become reality.
My name is Stephanie and I am an ISSA certified personal trainer at Natural Bodyz Fitness. I am a Virginia Beach native and mom of 2 daughters and a son. I started my journey in fitness in my late 20’s because I wanted to get healthier and be a better role model for my kids. Before I began learning about proper nutrition and exercise, I spent a good part of my adult life “yo-yo” dieting, following the latest fads and resorting to a lot of cardio trying to achieve my “goal” body without results. It wasn’t until I sought guidance with a proper nutrition plan and training program that I started to see the results I had always wanted. As my training progressed I was organically inspiring others to get motivated and people began asking for my help. I have done everything from home workouts, to gym training, to being onstage as a fitness competitor.
As a trainer I help people of all fitness levels learn and succeed with their goals! As a busy single mom of 3, I understand how challenging it can be to make time for yourself, especially time for exercise and eating properly, as those things often come last or just don’t happen at all. My mission is to help simplify that by working with your schedule, holding you accountable and giving you the tools needed for whatever your goals are, no matter how big or small.
Hi, I’m Cara Howard and I am the general manager for Natural Bodyz Fitness 24/7 Bayside. I am a South Carolina native and recently married. I strongly believe that fitness and nutrition are the keys to a happier and less stressful life. Since moving to this area, I have really become attached to the sense of community and the healthy lifestyle that radiates from everyone young to old here.
My journey started when my weight got out of control. Not only was it bad for my health, but it was also bad for my confidence and happiness in general. So I made the decision to make a huge lifestyle change. Through tough training and good nutrition I was able to lose 60 lbs. and the transformation was so incredibly rewarding. Now, my main goal is to encourage others to accomplish and maintain their goals too so that they can share that same incredible feeling. While fitness and nutrition can be hard to keep up with in the fast paced lives we lead, we promise to be here to help you on your own journey. We are your support system and will be your biggest motivators. Natural Bodyz Fitness encompasses all the sense of this community and its dedication to keeping all of us healthy and active and we look forward to having you join us!

ACT CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER
My name is Bond…Terrence Bond. All of my life I have gotten that joke from people. Coincidentally, my approach to personal training with dedication and intensity rival that of ‘007’ himself. As your personal trainer my goal and commitment is to take you to the next level in your physical fitness. I am a firm believer in the concept of ” Total Fitness.” In short, that is training the Mind, Mouth, Attitude and Body.
My philosophy in life is simply this: ‘ Do it with Purpose!’ Whatever that may be, but none more important than with fitness & nutrition. If you’re going to put time and money into a valuable project like your own body, then maximize your time and results, do it with purpose! Given the tried and proven diet and workout programs with USA Elite Trainers, together, you and I will take you to the next level to achieve YOUR TOTAL FITNESS GOALS. Even more personal training with me will be fun in the process.
PERSONAL TRAINER AND GROUP FITNESS INSTRUCTOR
My path toward health and wellness didn’t begin until later in life. Being a client of personal training in my late 20s, I started to see the benefits, both physical and mental, of taking care of my body. Coming back to personal training in my late 30s, and working at a great gym with positive, like-minded people inspired me to look into becoming a personal trainer. I studied through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and became certified in 2013. I later became credentialed in Corrective Exercise through NASM, and completed Nancy Clark’s Sports Nutrition course in 2015. The biggest thing I have learned is that we must never stop learning.
I have spent most of my life in the Hampton Roads area, and have enjoyed the opportunity that personal training affords to meet new people from all walks of life with a wide variety of goals; from losing weight, to gaining lean mass, to getting up from a kneeling position unassisted. There’s nothing better than sharing the moment with a client when they reach a milestone.
