Stacey started her Cross Fit journey in May 2016 looking for something goal-oriented as well as something more mentally and physically challenging. A certified Pilates instructor since 2003 and Pilates Apparatus instructor since 2008, she operated her own Pilates studio after returning to Cincinnati from Massachusetts. She appreciates the similarities between Pilates and Cross Fit as practices that require consistency and hard work as well as continued opportunities for challenges and growth. As a former French teacher she enjoyed helping her students realize their capabilities and achieve their academic goals. As a coach she enjoys helping people push their physical and mental limits to succeed when they didn't think it was possible.
