Stacey Sparrow – Certified Personal Trainer
At age 19 Stacey endured a spinal cord injury that almost took his life. During his recovery, his doctors told him that he could no longer play sports and he shouldn’t lift more than 10 lbs. He took their advice, at first, but soon realized he felt worse overall by not being active. It was at this point that Stacey started his own form of recovery through strength training.
Stacey has now been in the fitness industry for over 13 years. He finds his greatest pleasure in working with individuals who want to make a positive change in their life, become fit and create and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Stacey has watched clients dramatically change their outward appearance, but more importantly, change how they feel. He helped a female police officer drop 50+ pounds and get in the best shape of her life, which helped her keep up at work. He was able to help a grandmother pick up her grand kids again and participate in family picnic activities when she had given up hope of ever being able to do again. Stacy assisted a cancer patient be more active and in less physical pain during the last months of life, which his wife was grateful for. Stacey has had the opportunity to train with the Clovis P.D. PALS boxing program near Fresno. That program has sent young men into professional boxing careers.
Stacey brings a high level of motivation, commitment, and a variety of entertaining activities to keep you engaged and never bored. He incorporates many types of training into his methods including speed and agility training for athletes, core and strength training and boxing. Stacey keeps it real. He keeps the positive changes coming. You will look better, but most importantly, you will feel better!
