Norfolk became my new home in 1996 when I came to play tennis for Old Dominion University. Figuring out what to “major” in was a no-brainer. But did I know exactly what I wanted to do? No. To be honest, I thought I was going to play and/or teach tennis for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, life threw me a curve ball when a fracture in my spine along with some herniated discs sidelined my tennis career, forever. Shortly after I was told I could never play tennis again… I was placed in a body cast. Luckily the major I chose, Commercial Recreation, required my last semester to be an internship – where I was introduced to the fitness center environment and personal training as a career. I was sold, and passionate about the knowledge, support, and the gift of healthy living I could introduce to the public.
Fast forward 19 years and here you have me - Personal Trainer, Bootcamp Instructor, Nutritional Consultant and owner of Lacey Lee Fitness. My journey to a healthy lifestyle has been just as tumultuous and challenging as anyone else's. It continues to this day as I battle Chronic Lyme Disease.
The lack of education and understanding of what healthy living encompasses, compounded by chronic pain from my debilitating back injury were key factors in the struggles I once faced. I know what it looks like. At first meeting or glance you see a fit, thin, athletic girl. People see me in my roles as Personal Trainer, Boot Camp Instrutor and as a Nutritional Consultant. They feel my energy and positive outlook on life. They assume, “She has never had a weight problem, has had no issues with working out, and has always lived a healthy lifestyle.” Then they get to know me, and my story. They soon realize I’ve been where they are; I’ve dealt with weight issues, life has thrown numerous curve balls my way, etc.Establishing a common ground with my clients allows me to give them hope and proof that a healthy lifestyle is in their reach and can be achieved.
