"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!"

"I have been attending this location since 2013 and joined first as a single person with 30 minute sessions. Then later had the session where it was 2 people during the 1 hour session; and later returned to individual 30 minute sessions. When I first attended I basically had no tone since I was at a desk job allllll day; in addition I had a nearly one hour commute each way from home to work and vice versa. And about 2 years later, I had some shoulder problems and went through physical therapy; after I received the "ok" from my physical therapist that I could start Personal Training, I went back to Miss Stacy.

Miss Stacy has helped me gain tone and confidence, and worked with my hectic schedule. This I like about Miss Stacy are: 
1) first-time assessment is practically a free session as she gauges where I am and my goals, etc 
2) I appreciate her patience yet ability to push me to a potential I didn't know I had, and 
3) being modern and being able to text to confirm some of my appointments... I sometimes was in a situation where I couldn't talk on the phone, and texting really helped out with appointment confirmations.  
4) I didn't have access to a kitchen to cook my own foods, so she also provides some tips that'll help for my nutrition. This nutritionist side of her is quite helpful.

I recommend her. 

If you are insecure about starting up a fitness routine, don't be. Her studio permits one-on-one attention so you won't feel like you're in a room with people already in shape and feel frustrated. It is a safe place to become a better version of you!"

"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."

skiing. I have seen year round improvements and will continue to

“ My wife 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.”

"Stacy has created amazing, thought-out routines which are fresh and

targeted for me. This keeps me motivated and prevents burn-out or 

boredom and my body continues to react positively week-after-week. Stacy is very knowledgeable and really knows how to work out my entire body. 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!"

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

“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."

"I was introduced to Stacy's Fitness through my weight management meeting. I was having a hard time going up and down stairs since I had knee surgery about 5 years ago. I've been going once a week on my days off, for the last 5 months. I have seen a 40% improvement since I started working out with Stacy's knowledgeable direction. It's true you need to exercise when you need to lose weight."

"I trained with Stacy for 4 years and just in 4 months, I had lost a significant amount of weight. She is wonderful at motivating a person to reach their physical fitness goal. I now live in Atlanta , Ga , and I still call her for advice on my fitness. I work out about 3 times a week, and this is largely due to Stacy's influence on my need to stay healthy. For this I will always be thankful."

"When I retired in 1999 I continued with Stacy because her energy keeps me coming back. I tried the larger gyms but found that their size and lack of privacy made me uncomfortable, where Stacy's Fitness offers that one on one private training. 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."
