Stacey began her adult fitness journey by joining a gym, working with a personal trainer, and putting in many hours there each week. After seeing all the positive effects of living a fit life, Stacey knew she wanted to inspire others to find the same passion for fitness. Stacey lived most of her life in central Indiana, before moving to upstate New York. She graduated with a degree in Art Education from Indiana University, and taught Visual Art in Fishers, IN for 5 years. Art and fitness are her two biggest passions in life. On April 2, 2013, Stacey experienced her first ever CrossFit WOD and felt all the feels associated with trying CrossFit for the first time. The sense of fear of the unknown and being uncomfortable, the excitement, the challenge to not quit, and the potential level of fitness that this sport achieves. She knew instantly that CrossFit was something she wanted to be a part of for the rest of her life. Stacey loves the community/family aspect of CrossFit and how it can unite and inspire people. In April of 2016, Stacey finally achieved one of her goals and attended the Level 1 CrossFit training seminar. Not only did her knowledge of CrossFit grow, but so did her love for it. In June of 2016, Stacey started coaching. Stacey hopes to encourage others on their fitness journey, as well as further her education and practice of the fundamentals of CrossFit.
“I truly believe CrossFit is for everyone! I love seeing how it brings people of all ages and abilities together. When someone achieves a goal or does something they didn’t think they could do, it makes me so happy!”
