After recovery from a life-threatening Cerebral Aneurysm in May 2006, Stacy Brown knows the value of a consistent, results-oriented fitness program. Having spent the majority of her life extremely active, training for bodybuilding shows, teaching many group exercise classes, personal training and eating healthy, Stacy feels that it was these “pillars of wellness” that helped her survive this unexpected diagnosis.
Stacy worked out up until the day before this emergency surgery. She had no idea that she had a life threatening procedure in her near future. One day she was teaching a cycling class and preparing for a competition and the next she was at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia on an operating table. After her miraculous recovery, she resumed her fitness career and felt a heightened passion for helping others help improve their physical and emotional strength. What she realized from this journey is that its what you do before the life threatening diagnosis, is what determines how you will recover. Living a life of health and wellness is what enabled Stacy to recover in an extraordinary way. As a trainer and health coach its this very experience that motivates her to help others with their fitness and wellness journey. She has first hand experience in starting an exercise program from the beginning and what it takes to fight back from what challenges life may throw at you!
