Workouts From Home
Originally from New York, Stacey Rao grew up locally right here in Boca Raton, Florida. She attended Florida Atlantic University, where she originally studied business and finance and then later went back to study exercise science. In 2007, Stacey took a leap of faith when she put her financial planning career on hold to move to Hawaii for nine weeks for an intensive Bikram yoga teacher training program.
Today, Stacey lives in Lighthouse Point, Florida with her husband and two young daughters. On the weekends, you can find her teaching hot yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Delray Beach.
Like a true Yogi, she has mastered the art of balancing a full-time career, her own personal training business, teaching yoga classes, and family life. Doing all of this, while still working towards her own personal fitness goals. Stacey is currently training for her 6th NPC bikini competition, as a natural athlete. Stacey has always lived by the philosophy “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!” and belief that “Hard work and consistency will always take you further than good genetics, or even talent.” She is passionate about fitness and enjoys sharing her passion with others. In her free time, Stacey volunteers as a Kindness Ambassador for Kindness Matters 365, an organization that she has been involved with for the past three years.
