Since the birth of her twins, Stephanie has been juggling life as a wife, mother, volunteer, and board member. Prior to becoming a mother Stephanie was an Early Childhood Education Teacher. With such love for her students, teaching and wonderfully creative mind she was one of the most requested teachers, and had earned the honor of Teacher of the Year at Southside Elementary. It is not surprising then that this same energy has gone into being an At Home Mom. But as many of you know, this can be at the expense of your own self care and well being. Stephanie found peace of mind, friendships, fun, stress relief, physical fitness, and endorphins in Dance Trance! She has been known to say it “saved my life.”
In 2015 Stephanie’s (any many others’) Dance Trance life on Amelia Island appeared to be coming to a screeching halt when the franchise owner had decided to not buy back in. Stephanie and several instructors when on a mission to keep Dance Trance alive on Amelia. Before long, Stephanie took the lead… and then the ideas and opportunities started flowing in.
Together with the creative vision, entrepreneurial spirit, and drive of her husband (Bill Mooney), the concept of The Beat was formed. A fitness studio with an emphasis on awesome and upbeat music, fun energy and atmosphere, modern and effective fitness programs, and passionate and committed instructors.
Stephanie loves what Dance Trance has done for her, and is excited to offer you the same amazing benefits… and then some! She is trained to teach Dance Trance, TRX, FlexxIt, and PiYo.
Who is Bill Mooney:
Bill had an incredibly busy and successful life prior to marrying Stephanie. As a skilled Woodworker and Craftsman Bill had already established himself on Amelia Island, and was known for his beautiful woodworking and business (Mooney’s Custom Woodworks). All while raising his first son.
As a young man, Bill had a love of physical fitness and regularly competed in body building competitions… having even won several Teenage Long Island events. But, like many men, Bill’s love for physical fitness took a back seat to running a business and raising a family. Especially after marrying Stephanie and having 3 more children.
It’s no big surprise that Bill was very supportive when Stephanie started talking about Dance Trance franchise rights. And for anyone that knows Bill… it’s no big surprise that his creative mind and entrepreneurial spirit took over. Every square foot of Dance Trance’s new home would be awesome, because only the best would do. All 6 fitness programs are being offered out of state of the art, high tech, well equipped studios; designed and decorated to the T. As wonderful example of Bill’s craft, skill, vision and ability, The Beat is a masterpieces which is just a pleasing to the eye as it is to the body. He is trained to teach FlexxIt and Spin.
