Stacie Macias - Certified Personal Trainer, American Council on Exercise
I have been leading group exercise classes for all ages and fitness levels for the past four years through the YMCA, East Lansing Hannah Community Center and a variety of other venues including 4-H youth camps and after-school programs. My certifications include personal training, Punk Rope and BodyWorks (a program teaching families how to establish healthy habits).
I try to bring an element of fun into workout sessions because I don’t think that working out should be a chore. To meet the needs of clients, I personalize their programs as they work to attain the goals that they have set. In my spare time, I enjoy playing sports, specifically soccer and volleyball.
Michael Macias - Certified Personal Trainer, American Council on Exercise
As a certified Punk Rope instructor (interval training with jump ropes), I have taught group fitness classes at the YMCA and for businesses at work retreats. I am a licensed soccer coach and train both teams and individuals in running, soccer and softball. I am a graduate of Michigan State University (Go Green!). Both through work and through a stint in the infantry in the US Marine Corp, I have traveled internationally.
I promote physical fitness with fun, healthy living, forming relationships and friendly competition. "It is all about quality not quantity in your attitude, lifestyle, relationships and performance. When you do even the smallest thing correctly, it will bear good results long term."
