Athlete Spotlight: Stacie


Stacie has been a die hard regular since she joined LAX. She’s incredibly friendly and has pretty much befriended everyone in the evening classes as well as morning peeps since she mixes up some morning classes in too. I’m not sure if she’s made it to the later evening classes yet, so there may be a handful who don’t yet know her. She’s also a bad ass and crushes every workout. In any case, I bet most people don’t know about her love of unicorns and Lucille Ball, so here’s some more you may not know…

What person from history would you want to workout with?

I would love to workout with Lucille Ball! I Love Lucy is one of my favorite shows, every episode with her exercising is hilarious…she tries so hard and doesn’t give up.

Stacie crushing an Open workout!

What’s your primary goal in life?

To be happy and grateful for what I have! 🙂

What’s your favorite non-traditional holiday?

I consider National school counseling week a holiday, this is the only week that I indulge everyday in sweets and receive cute thank you cards from the kiddos I work with.

What’s your favorite movie?

Home Alone is probably the movie I have watched over 10 times.

What’s your number one fear or phobia?

I dislike the dark, something about not knowing what is around me is so scary.

Making overhead squats look easy.

What do you do when you’re procrastinating? (Name your go-to distractions.)

Talk to whoever is around me… I love to talk.

What did you do for fitness before CrossFit?

I was a cardio bunny, I ran and took 1-2 classes of cycling a day (eww to how much I used to love to run before)

If you had one extra hour of free time every day, how would you use it?

I would read, this is something I love to do because it relaxes me but just never seem to have the time to do so.

What is a cheat meal you don’t feel one bit guilty about?

Ice cream! Especially an ice cream sandwich from Manhattan Beach Creamery.

Name your favorite pizza.

Has to have chicken, pineapple and ham

What’s your favorite mythical creature of all time?

Unicorns. I had an obsession with collecting my little pony figurines growing up and I love to ride horses; unicorns are a combo of both.

Looking calm while working hard.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

I worked at a park in Irvine called the Great Park, I was in charge of running the carousel which was awful because I would get dizzy from all the spinning and all the yelling kids.

Name your favorite carb source.

Sweet potato fries without a doubt.

Name your favorite local breakfast spot.

Overland Café…they have delicious food and yummy mimosas J

If you had 10 million dollars, how would you spend it?

Travel around the world; enjoying life without a care.
