“I decided to try Stacey’s running group thinking I would only do it for a month or so to lose a couple of pounds. I have never thought of myself as a “runner” and would never have gone out in the rain or cold before. Wow, was I wrong! Stacey made me actually enjoy running!!! I look forward to it now, have better energy, better sleep, and feel strong. I have made new friends and Stacey gently encourages us each at our own level so I don’t even realize that I am being pushed just slightly out of my old habits to make great improvements in speed and distance. She is reliable, supportive, and knowledgeable about how to reach your goals. Also super friendly and inclusive! I highly recommend working with Stacey.”
“Really enjoy variety of exercises and the running motivation. Highly recommend!”
“I turned 70 years old this summer, and decided to make it an uplifting mile marker by resuming running. I found the perfect re-entry into an activity I had enjoyed well into my 50s but for which I had since lost motivation.
Stacey Stoner’s “Couch Potato to 5K” steadily and rather quickly got me comfortable running 5K distances. I re-discovered the joy of cool morning runs and the confidence and renewed energy that comes with using one’s body wisely and well. Stacey is responsible for giving me the constant encouragement and the skills to build strength and endurance. Her class was relaxed yet focused. She provided excellent tips and goal setting in between class meetups.
I thank myself for taking the first step toward running again, and I thank Stacey for taking me the rest of the way!”
“This summer, I had the pleasure of participating in a Parks and Recreation running clinic with Stacey. I was impressed that she included warm-ups, core strengthening exercises, technique tips, and running challenges with every class. We all had a great time together, and with Stacey’s guidance I went from huffing and puffing through a mile run to comfortably completing a 5K! Stacey is fun, knowledgeable, compassionate, and encouraging, and I would highly recommend her as a trainer.”
