OMG! Finally! Back on the blog. WOW, it has been long. This has just been such a busy time, but thankfully you all are the best and taking a 2 week hiatus was okay. BUT we are back and it is time to jump right back in the best way we know how. Yep, you guessed it…by showing our favorite women with nothing but love. This lady is seriously the best. I know I say that about everyone but she really is THE best. She is extremely talented, dedicated, sincere, joyful, and about a hundred and one other things as well. Though she be tiny, she is seriously so fierce. She is up before the sun most days, but have no fear…she is the sunshine to us all on the darkest of days. Stacey Novelli is the real deal. She gets shit done. She loves hard. She tells it how it is. She is genuine. She is loyal. She really is all that and a bag of chips. This world is a better and more colorful place because of her. I, along with so many more, am blessed to call her a friend. She is more than worthy of this Women Crush, so show her some love! Stacey, just please don't ever change! Keep being the most amazing, badass, loving, spitfire that you are. You make the world shine, and people smile. THAT is something special. And luckily, we get to call you ours! Here’s to you and all that you are.
To read more about Stacey and her love for TORQUE, keep reading! As always, sending love and hugs to all of my babes, no matter where you may be!
Favorite TORQUE memory:
Ummm how do I pick just one....
Ok so OF COURSE I love doing Chambongs and eating tequila strawberries while peeing on a bus on our way to Soul Cycle with all these badass, hilarious babes on my bday. That one goes without saying and was one memory for the books! But, I might have to get a little sappy here and say my favorite moment was witnessing Summer’s journey to success when she went on her own and opened TORQUE and brought every amazingly awesome instructor we could ever ask for to make TORQUE what it is today. I was in her very last class the day she decided to go on her own and can remember how sad I was to see her go as she had become my favorite instructor ever, her energy was indescribable and I told her Im going wherever you land lady!!!!!So then, next chapter.....she created this space that is hands down THE BEST!! I initially came to Torque to just lose some extra baby lbs. and to clear my mind while going through the devastating loss of my mom to cancer but soon I found it to be my sanctuary for sanity, TORQUE gave me an outlet to let it out, dance, cry, whatever you need, lights out and let it all out, it was a recharge like no other!!I have been so fortunate to meet so many incredible women who share a common love for the Rooster hour at TORQUE, my morning crew (love you Kate) is no joke, so motivated, dedicated and inspiring beyond words. There aren't many things Id wake up for at 4:50 and drive 20 minutes for at the 5 am hour besides this crew!!
Favorite quote and what it means to you:
Stop the world and get off- just as it says, take a minute to be present, express gratitude, be positive, laugh a lot, appreciate the beautiful things in this life and not let the negative things consume you.
Favorite workout clothing brand:
I like to try out all kinds of brands along my travels and I might have just a few pieces of Lilly Pulitzer thats for sure!! I’m also a sucker for anything that Insta tells me I need, but my all time fave and go to are my Lulu pants and TORQUE swag.
