Bronni Karatassos was born and raised in South Africa and relocated to Atlanta in 1992. Bronni has always been an enthusiastic athlete playing competitive sports throughout her school career. She started dance lessons at age 4 and danced competitively for the next 20 years. She is focused on the well being of the whole person including the need for people to be as physically and mentally acute as they can be. Hence she decided to follow her undergraduate degree at Georgia State with a Masters in Physical Education. Bronni taught health and physical education to elementary school children for seven years. She gained her American Council on Exercise certification so she could share her enthusiasm for physical fitness with people of all ages as a fitness instructor.
Bronni is very active in the lives of her two sons volunteering at their school and at their many athletic activities. She still makes time to participate in half marathons and triathlons. She and her boys live in Atlanta.
Bronni is the regional trainer for the Orangetheory Fitness Sandy Springs and Cumberland studios and is adored by members for being so attentive to detail during the workout. Her passion for fitness inspires others to challenge themselves to be their best.

Desi Steib, born in New Orleans Louisiana. Attended the University of Minnesota where I was a Division I football player and student athlete. Graduated with a bachelors in Business & Marketing Ed. Also attended the Art Institute of Atlanta where I received an Associates degree in Culinary Arts. My Fitness Certification is through I.S.S.A.
My motivation for being a fitness instructor is from my hometown of Vacherie, Louisiana. Along with amazing food we also have a high rate of obesity and people that lives get taken way before their time due to heart attacks etc. so my focus is to be the most well known fitness instructor (leading by example) to touch as many lives as I am able to!
