ARX TRAINERS: Introducing Stacey Coyne

ARX has added a new trainer to its staff: Stacey Coyne. Some of you may have met her as she has shadowed and participated the 6:30 pm class a few times.

Stacey has a strong interest and background in pilates, as well as a holistic approach to fitness. She is the founder of Mind Body Image LLC, which aims to "empower people to transform their lives from the inside out with the proper mental, physical and nutritional fuel." In addition, she is the health and wellness coach for UPS in Norwood.

Stacey is a NASM-certified personal trainer, holds a diploma from the National Personal Training Institute and is working toward her Stott Pilates Mat and Reformer certification. Among the courses she has completed are Stott Pilates Injury and Special Populations; and Anatomy and Postural Analysis.

"My journey with mind-body wellness was sparked 12 years ago when I began training in Stott Pilates," she explained. "As I became fascinated with the body physically, it opened my eyes to something even bigger -- the capabilities of thought. The human mind holds infinite power and this is where the magic happens. Our minds shape our reality and within this, the possibilities and potential are endless. I am forever in pursuit of learning new ways to better the quality of my life and my clients' with positive mental, physical and financial fuel. My mission is to spread positive motivation and inspiration to as many people as I can."

In addition to fitness training, Stacey works in sales with a nutritional supplement company to help people fuel their bodies to function at peak ability. She also volunteers ARC Westwood Special needs summer program for bike riding and fitness, and Special Olympics. She has a four-year-old daughter who is enrolled in Athletic Republic's Mini-Athletes program - testament to Stacey's strong belief in the power of fitness for all.
