Hi, I’m Lacy!
I am the owner of C323 Fitness!
Mom of five wonderful children, three I birthed and two I gained through marriage to my sweet husband Andy. I am happy to have a moment to share my story about how God took this very average woman and made me anything but average for His glory!
I worked for 15 years as a Registered Respiratory Therapist in my local medical center. Over those years I saw the many illnesses caused by neglect of fitness. I became passionate about pursuing my own fitness so that I could live the best quality of life possible. Along the journey I discovered weight training when I joined a gym to spend more time with my husband. Only a few weeks into weight training I noticed my muscles developing and I was feeling better than ever. The scientific side of me took over and I wanted to know more about weight training so I took a certification coarse in Fitness and became a Certified Fitness Trainer.
There was still a piece of the puzzle missing, nutrition. So I hired a fitness coach through Hammer Fit coaching. Once I learned proper nutrition, my physique changed in ways it had never changed before and I felt the best I had ever felt in my life!
I decided to enter an NPC bodybuilding competition in the bikini division at age 40. I dedicated my efforts in the gym to the Lord and He made me shine on that competition stage! As a novice I won 1st place Novice, 1st place Masters, 1st place bikini Open, and I won the Overall Open Bikini. These big wins Nationally Qualified me. This was all because of the presence of God in my life.
I continued training for the following 8 months. During this time I heard the call of God on my life to leave my job as an RRT and open a gym. I ached to help other people find their fitness! The life changing moment for me happened one day when I caught an unexpected glimpse of myself in the gym mirror and did not recognize myself. I could not believe how much my physique changed. With joyfilled tears in my eyes I decided that it would be my mission to teach other people how to change their fitness so they could feel what I was feeling in that moment.
Getting my nutrition right was the biggest game changer for me so I wanted to learn how to help others with nutrition. I became a Certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition. This also helped me continue to achieve my own personal goals! I began coaching clients in the bodybuilding community but my heart was inclined to the beginner in fitness. I wanted to reach the people who could not get to a brick and mortar gym. This was the beginning of C323 Fitness.
C323 stands for Colossians 3:23 from the Word of God “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” I chose this because in order to best serve you, I must serve God first. He is my employer now!
In July, 2018 I competed in my second bodybuilding show at Nationals where I earned my IFBB Pro status. By God’s grace and in His power I achieved this incredible honor faster than most. Now I am ready to reach out to you and help you find your best fitness no matter where you are in your journey! Let’s do this!!
