Stacie is Rucking Awesome!

Stacie Metcalfe has been a member of our gym for several years.  She grew up in the Atlanta area and is an amazing mother to her teenage son who attends The Lovett School.  Stacie frequents our noon STAC classes and also follows a custom training program I developed for her to reach her strength goals more quickly.  We asked Stacie a few questions about her experiences inside and outside of the gym.
