Welcome to the Land of AUGUST!

WOW… Last month was filled with some unexpectedness, eh? YOWZA! 🙂 August is a notoriously slow month for Fitness; people go on holiday and take some time to enjoy the Sun. Create some balance this month man… Take your workouts outside of the gym; go for a run, try paddle boarding, experience midnight yoga… Change it up! 🙂

I have Several Opportunities for us to work out again in August & September, plus an exciting announcement I’m going to release mid-month to all…Miss you Equinox.




* EQUINOX – 7 Years of Glory & Motivation

It’s not the end… It’s just the beginning.

So last month I made the dreaded announcement that I left Equinox… For those of you who take my classes on a regular this announcement was as hard for me as it was for you. Thank you for all the emails, texts, facebook tags, and voicemails… It means more to me than you know.

Imagine this, I’ve had almost all of those classes for 7 years and then on Tuesday the 14th it just ended. Talk about uncomfortable; I went into a minor depression to say the least… OY! 🙂

Before- During- & After class when I say I love you dudes, I think you know I really mean it…. So it’s been tough. BUT at the same time it’s been great for me. Staying in the same place for to long sometimes gets easy and it begins to feel safe. But as you know if you want to take it to the next level you have to Change; “What got you here won’t necessarily get you there” That’s a great book by the way… 🙂




* The LEAP

What do I say in class all the time? “Courage is not defined by those who fought and did not fall but by those who fought fell and rose again” OR what’s more like it is… What do you do when you get knocked down people?! YOU GET YOUR A** RIGHT BACK UP! 🙂

In order to take your body to the next level you have to change it up right? Well I believe in order to take your Life to the next level you have to change it up too. Me leaving Equinox and entering the mighty frontier of Entrepreneur-Land is exciting and scary in the same breath.

What Equinox and New York City (that’s YOU) have Taught me….. DRIVE, DISCIPLINE, DO IT.

1. Every second matters so do your best always.
2. Every person matters so be good to people.
3. Take every challenge as an opportunity to be great.
4. There are no mistakes just chances you’ve taken.
5. Never Ever Give Up.
6. Always stay positive.
7. Surround yourself with an ALL-STAR Team (TheBigGAME!, SPIN, BOOTY).
8. Be Patient.
9. The past is History –The Future is a Mystery – And the right Now is The Present that’s why it’s called a gift. Be Present.
10. No Excuses.
11. No Short Cuts.
12. Believe that Anything is Possible if you have the courage to pursue it.
13. Believe that you are stronger than any obstacle big or small.
14. Trust your Journey.
15. And Always remember to… BRING IT.

It’s not the end; it’s just the beginning…:)

Greenwich Village Equinox:  I remember the first day I stepped on that stage to teach 6.30pm Spin Class at Greenwich Village Equinox… The instructor that had the spot before me was not working out so I was given the opportunity to ROCK it out at a club where I had started out as a floor trainer. I was SO EXCITED, I had big plans…  As I recall, in my first class I had about 3 people… hahahah!  🙂 🙂  But I wasn’t disheartened, I told my club group fitness manager that one day “I’ll have a waiting list… you wait Rachel, you wait.”

7 YEARS later what a ride.  THANK YOU to EVERYONE who’s SWEAT with me on those bikes.

My Wednesday Nights are going to be devoted to the next phase of Lacey Stone Fitness – There are now new people in my life that I have to say “I will have a …. you wait and see.”  🙂

Wednesday April 27th will be my final curtain call and I’ll be passing my primetime 6.30pm torch to the Amazing John Esty. Wednesday’s 6.30pm SPIN Event! @ Greenwich Equinox will have Gatorade Give-aways galore, A couple hoodie prizes, & more… Please come and a celebrate 7 years of SWEAT and LOVE!
