Meet Stacy (and her pup Buffy!). Originally from Bellevue, she is a student & family support advocate at a local high school as well as a boxing coach at Cappy’s in the Central District. She’s been boxing since she was 15, so 20 years now! 🥊 She’s also run 2 marathons, 15 half marathons, and taught Pilates in college solely for the purpose of forcing herself to stretch more (it improved her marathon time by an hour! 😮🏃♀️ She also enjoys writing fiction, hanging with her dog Buffy, and rewatching her favorite tv shows (she can talk for hours about Schitt’s Creek & Buffy the Vampire Slayer). ✍️🐶📺
How long have you been a member at GLSC?
Since August ‘22, almost a year! 😄
What brings you to GLSC?
I’ve always been interested in learning about powerlifting. Weights/barbells/machines always intimidated me in other gyms, so I stuck with cardio. I saw GLSC had an on-ramp course and I thought that would be a great way to learn techniques.
How has being a part of this gym benefited you?
It has benefited me more than I thought a gym could. During the on-ramp course, coaches Mikaela and Zeyab quickly showed me the values GLSC has of making sure everyone, no matter your ability or size, feels welcome, respected, and like an athlete. In the past, similar gyms weren’t kind to me, so to be seen and spoken to like an athlete is what got me to sign up and stay. All the coaches are just as wonderful, and I love the community. Amazing people go here, and I’m so glad to be a part of it 💜
Favorite movement or exercise?
Deadlifts and clean & jerks – they make me feel so powerful! 💪
Favorite pump up song?
Right now it’s: Little Girl by Chinchilla, Villian by K/DA & Kim Petras, and Diamonds by Megan Thee Stallion & Normani
