ABOUT ME

Steven

rousseau

Brooklyn born and raised, I am the founder of Brownstone Wellness, a Certified Personal Trainer, Holistic Nutritionist, and Kemetic Yoga instructor. Growing up I was overweight, ate unhealthy, and very inactive. When I was eight years old my parents enrolled me in Martial Arts (Karate). Once I got started with Karate, not only did I learned to defend myself, but I developed a discipline in maintaining an active lifestyle. I took Karate very seriously and stayed committed to my practice, eventually becoming a first-degree Black belt.

 

When I got to high school I gained an interest in football my freshman year, then made varsity my sophomore year, and played all throughout high school, even won a city championship, first one in the school history. While playing football in high school, I also ran track and field as a sprinter and a shot putter. Towards the end of my high school years, I had figure out the next chapter in my life, career wise, and that's when I decided to pursue being a personal trainer.


The summer before entering college in 2006, I started my journey as a personal trainer and became Certified with ISSA (International Sports Science Association), while I worked at a local gym. In college, I continued my passion for football, but also furthered my education in fitness and the human body, by studying to become a Physical Therapist Assistant at Nassau Community College.

While in college, I started to take personal training more seriously, and acquired additional certifications such as, Corrective Exercise/Post Rehab, and Certified Personal Trainer through NASM (National Association of Sports Medicine). Shortly after, I began to gain an interest in yoga and holistic living.

 

While progressing as personal trainer, I acquired another certificate, Certified TRX trainer, but my Interest in holistic living started to grow more and more, and I decided to become a Holistic Nutritionist through AFPA (American Fitness Professional Association), at same time becoming a vegan in 2009.

 

The next step in my journey as fitness professional, was pursue a certification as a yoga instructor, while I had been practicing yoga since 2006, I wasn't sure which style of yoga I wanted to specialize in, and that's when I came across Kemetic Yoga, a yoga practice out of ancient Egypt, that really intrigued me. After taking a workshop with, Master Kemetic Yoga Yiser Ra Hotep, I decided to become a Certified Kemetic Yoga Instructor through Yogaskills School of Kemetic Yoga. Once I received my Kemetic Yoga certification, I started implementing yoga into my training sessions.

 

My passion for health and wellness, continues grow, and I share this passion to my clients, looking to motivate them to feel the same way about their health, as well as their overall wellness. When I chose the name, “Brownstone Wellness", for my business, the process was based on my view on how to build a healthy body and mind, through building a solid foundation from within. The name "Brownstone" represents the body, just like a brownstone home, its strong sturdy and can withstand any conditions, but the reason why its long lasting and durable, is because of its strong foundation, this is where the name "Wellness" comes in. To be healthy, you have to be more than just strong on the outside, but strong and healthy on the inside, physiologically, psychologically, and energetically.
