“Stacey has really been a great addition to our CrossFit IoTA family.  It’s been awesome to watch her share what she has learned along here journey (and in case any of you have missed it you can check out her blog here) and lifted others around here to new heights.  The selfless attitude, willingness to share what she has learned and friendships that she has forged over the fast few months have really helped unite a lot of our members that attend the morning classes.  Stacey has also elevated her level of performance over the past 4 months and it has been very exciting to watch. Thanks for being dedicated and such a positive influence! – Coach Paul
