“Hello everyone my name is Bridget and I did the "28 Day Weight Loss Meal Plan" with Stacy’s Fitness. It was fabulous! I had always been able to keep my weight under control until I hit my 50's or better known as menopause, yuck, nothing worked. I would workout 6 days a week for over an hour each day and still nothing happened, in fact, I would wake up bloated. Stacy Michaels informed me that I probably had some food allergies, and having a thyroid issue didn’t help. She asked me questions and then developed a meal plan that was to meet my particular needs, it was fantastic! I didn’t have to workout like a race horse! The food was yummy and you eat 5 times a day! While you should exercise, you don’t have to go nuts. You just have to know what foods to eat and when. I am really grateful! It changed my outlook on everything. I lost 9.5 pounds. I lost inches everywhere. I am looking forward to losing 20 more pounds. Thank you Stacy, I am most grateful. You’re crazy if you don’t try this program. Go for it!"

"Hi my Name is Abby, I did the 28 Day Weight Loss Program with Stacy's Fitness. For YEARS I've been telling myself if I could just lose 10 pounds, if I had a dime for every time I said that, I would be rich. I was introduced to Stacy about 6 months ago when I began working out at her studio, it wasn't easy being in my mid 50's but I got stronger by the day, and can now do things I was never able to do before. Then the "28 Day Weight Loss Meal Plan" was offered and I thought what the hell.  She discussed my personal situation at length and designed a meal plan for me.  WOW I just want to say I was never hungry, I had energy and felt great, and yes in my first week lost 5 pounds! I have to say I cheated every now and then but she helped me balance that out and stay on track. It has changed my habits and enlightened me to go for another 10 lb loss and work my way off my high blood pressure medicine by the spring.  I just want to say you too can do it and you will never be hungry again!"


Love ya, Stacy

"My name is Kathryn. I did the 28 day weight loss meal plans program with Stacy’s Fitness. I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Stacy off and on for over 15 years.  She has been my personal trainer and helped me win a fitness challenge years ago. She has enthusiasm with the right combination of motivation, compassion, knowledge and personality!  I have tried to stay fairly active but have put on weight and haven’t been watching my nutrition as I should.  When Stacy told me she was launching her Online 28 Day Weight Loss Program, it was the right time for me to give it a go.  Stacy spent a lot of time talking with me about my lifestyle. She put together a meal plan for each week including what I might like, what I could substitute and I got to eat 5 times a day.! I feel rejuvenated and I have much more energy.  Looking better is a bonus! I encourage you to do something good for yourself.  You will be amazed with the results!"

"I've been training with Stacy for the past 2.5 years and it has changed my life. She has a vast knowledge in her profession and has educated me in both fitness and nutrition. Stacy is focused on helping me achieve my goals and makes every training session challenging. I have become stronger both physically and mentally; training with her has given me confidence I never knew I had. I love her no excuses approach and that she always pushes me to always do better. I highly recommend her training and nutrition programs to everyone!"

"I'm an engineer and have several clients and several staff. My work week is crazy and stressful. I look forward to my weekly time with Stacy to blow off that steam! I ALWAYS feel more grounded and relaxed after her workouts. I was very concerned about giving up my time when we all went into quarantine, but we were able to overcome! I still get my weekly workout with Stacy via FaceTime! The workouts are just as tough and fulfilling as when we were together! Now throw in those daily challenges she offers and I won't be going back to the office with the "quarantine 15" and my mental health will be in tack! Thanks Stacy!!"

"I had been struggling with my weight when Stacy promoted her 28 Days Drills Challenge Program which offered a video of our daily exercise. Even with being in a different state it was just what I needed to get motivated and something I looked forward too. Stacy is very approachable and was at hand whenever I had trouble with a certain exercise. I highly recommend her programs and would definitely do it again!!"

"I am so happy I found Stacy!!!! I just finished a six week personal training and meal planning routine. I won't use the word "diet" because the meals she gave me were delicious. In the initial meeting with Stacy we went over my eating habits, likes and dislikes and then she formulated a meal plan to help me attain my goal, while eating delicious, easy to prepare meals. Not only have I lost weight and inches, my "hot flashes" have decreased and my energy level has increased. As an added bonus my husband has adopted the healthy meal plan and has stopped taking antacids before bed!!! I would recommend Stacy to anyone who is looking to adopt a healthy lifestyle, lose some weight and reach their goals!!!!!"

"When I retired in 1999 I continued with Stacy because her energy keeps me coming back. Stacy rolls a lot into her time with you, assists in diet, and recommends at home stretches. She strengthens the muscle groups I don't use which support the ones I do - thus lower back pain is no longer chronic. When I tore my meniscus her exercises were exactly what the physical therapist recommended. I do my own housekeeping, gardening and ride my horse everyday. At age 70 I feel great! Thank you Stacy."

"Hello everyone! I’m Chris Robinson and I did the 28 day Online Weight Loss Meal Plans Challenge and lost 15 pounds…Stacy is incredible, personable, and highly intelligent. Her program works, works, works! It would be difficult in such a small space to say how awesome her simple effective methods are but here it goes: Follow her program and you will get to your goals! Although I did the 28 day program-don’t be fooled these simple principles will carry through to a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life. I’m so grateful for this program and plan on continuing with these principles-well, forever! Do the program and be amazed!"

"Hi all! I first met Stacy through a mutual friend when I was living in San Diego. I had just  had a serious battle perimenopause symptoms and let me tell ya……It sucked. I decided to get things under control by consulting a phenomenal Dr. specializing in balancing the body with diet, exercise and natural supplements. When I met Stacy I was just beginning this venture and was amazed at her knowledge of the body and how to maintain optimal health. She had the same philosophy……..heal and treat the body
with good food…..vitamins……positive attitude and exercise. So many Doctors want to hand you a pill when you get to the “change of life age” and tell you…..”just deal…..there’s nothing we can do. I was even handed a 30day supply of SSRI’s(depression meds)no test….no blood…….just take these and come back in 30 days tell me how ya feel! Stacy’s lifestyle is the epitome of how to stay healthy at any age, and she is passionate about it and wants to help others achieve that same level of health!
Thank God I have an anatomy physiology degree with about a year of Pharmacology under my belt. These meds are handed out like tic tacs and can be do more harm than good.
I started eating better with Stacys help and recipes…..her weight training coaching and could ask her anything about everything! She checked up on me to make sure all was well and always offered support and motivation and fun recipies that are easy to prepare……. because we’re all busy….busy!!
My only regret is not being closer to her studio. I would be there everyday for her coaching……..but mostly, for her friendship! Talented, wonderful little fitness cookie that she is! Thank you girl for all your help and support…….I’m getting to the next level slow and steady!
Thanks!! And I miss ya!"

"Stacy is one of the most driven and professional trainers I have ever met. She takes her job very seriously and makes sure you are challenged. Even when I was recovering from surgery, not only did she

make the time to adjust my workouts during this time, but she continued to encourage me to continue challenging myself. I would highly

recommend Stacy."

"3 yrs. ago, I noticed that a co-worker lost quite a bit of weight & looked healthier & fit. I asked what she was doing differently, & she excitedly shared information about her trainer named Stacy Michaels @ Stacy's Fitness. She raved about how each session is tailored to suit the needs of her clients. I waited a yr. before going in for a free consultation & evaluation. Stacy has been my trainer for 2 yrs. now. Her training, experience, knowledge of health, fitness, nutrition, & good work ethic is to be commended. I am physically stronger & fit. I am able to lift weights & do exercises I never imagined I ever could. My challenge is following her recommendations of a healthier diet. Stacy's Ftiness offers excellent service for those who wish good health."

"I came to Stacy's Fitness through the recommendation of several colleagues and friends who not only were looking and feeling good but even better & happier attitudes & outlooks to match the results they got from her guidance. Hey, if I could pay someone to lose my buldge I would. I was the fat kid ever since I could remember. Me and working out didn't get along until I had to have weight loss surgery or face fatal consequences of morbid obesity. I lost most of it but these last pounds would only be good and gone through working out which I knew nothing about. I decided to give Stacy a shot not knowing she'd teach me that if I did that for myself I could reach my goals. Stacy truly cares for and about her clients. She always goes the extra mile for her clients cause she's just that AMAZING!
Some trainers are all about lip service and getting paid & gyms won't hold you accountable or necessarily make you work out. Stacy is invested in your success & GIFTED IN GIVING YOU THE TOOLS TO GIVE YOUR DREAMS THEIR BEST SHOT!  SHE SHOWS YOUR BODY ALL THE AMAZING THINGS IT CAN DO TO GET TO WHERE YOU WANT IT TO BE."

"Being a professional dancer and studio owner I have to be careful when choosing the best workout solutions for my body. Stacy's Fitness ROCKS! They have a program for all fitness levels and ages, I even send my dance students to Stacy for extra strength and flexibility exercises."

"Recently I suffered a knee injury requiring surgery and extensive rehabilitation. Without Stacy as my trainer I don't believe I would have been able to resume my life style of off road motorcycle riding and motocross racing. Riding a high performance off road motorcycle is an extremely physically demanding extreme sport. A fast rider requires a great deal of core strength, stamina, balance and keen eye hand coordination. Stacy's training is the instrumental element in my rehabilitation as well as overall fitness."

"My sessions with Stacy have helped me realize how strong I can be. She customized my workouts so I can do them at home, too, and pushed me farther than I would've ever pushed myself. Her encouragement makes me do things and lift weights that I never thought would be possible. I look forward to the information she gives me on the exercises and she always makes the workouts new and creative…I might get sore, but I'm never bored!"

"Stacy is amazing. She helped me lose 11 inches and two pant sizes for my wedding in just months. She is currently helping me maintain my new body and tone even more. Stacy not only is a trainer, but a friend who is there to guide you every step of the way. For years I worked out in a gym and never made this sort of progress. Stacy gives you tips and tools so when you go to the gym you are ready and know exactly what you need to do! Thank you Stacy for everything! My husband thanks you too."

“I hate going to the gym. Waiting for machines, people watching, and just general distractions prevented me from working to attain the body image I desired. Stacy Michaels and her focused approach to fitness and dedication to my goals saved me from the arduous task of going to the gym. After 9 months I look better, feel better and have a much improved self image. Even better, I’ve gained a great friend out of the process."

"Stacy helped me get in shape with personal, one-on-one training.  As a man, I was skeptical Stacy would be able to push me to perform.  Wow - was I wrong.  Stacy helped me get in shape - shape that I had not seen since leaving the Marines.  If I had not moved out of the area...I'd still be going to her!"

She helps motivate me to work hard and learn proper form and new ways of thinking about fitness. Bottom line:  I really look forward to my workouts with Stacy!"

“My husband and I have been training together at Stacy’s Fitness for about two years. While we’ve both been active with biking, hiking and golf, it was clear pretty quickly that being active and being fit  are two different things. The training hour is a complete body workout from warm-up, legs, upper body, stomach, back, stretch and cool down. Stacy keeps us both on separate exercises at the same time and still observes closely and makes corrections in form. Stacy can be tough, but the result for me is much better muscle strength, good weight maintenance, with more energy through the day.”
