"Before I met Lacey, I had no idea about training or nutrition. I thought I did for three years, as I have been trying to lose weight and tone, but had no success. I did so many crazy diets and stuck to doing the same thing (just cardio). I lost my motivation as no progress was happening. Since meeting Lacey, she has helped me and is still helping me achieve so many goals! I thought I could not achieve while still eating food without starving myself and leaving food groups out of my diet - but the food is tasty and I'm loving it. I am happier and seeing great results! I have more motivation and have been feeIing happier with myself, I never thought I would get results like this! Cant wait for many more goals to be achieved with Lacey - Thank You for everything!"
"For years I have struggled with my weight... I would try ANYTHING- starvation diets, countless 'natural' weight loss medications and concoctions, even at one stage I was surviving off 500 calories a day, taking some magic 'doing 3 hours of cardio a day and not seeing ANY results, so then I would BINGE on the weekends, out of frustration, always promising to 'try again on Monday'... Not only did I feel sooooo unhealthy physically, but hating what I was looking at in the mirror every day and a constant feeling of failure was seriously taking it's toll on my mental well-being, and my self esteem was shocking. Then Lacey came to my rescue! She opened my eyes up BIG TIME, and in the first week of seeing her I was already seeing amazing results! I couldn't believe the amount of DELICIOUS food I was consuming (mmmm carbs!) - and still losing CMs & KGs! Within a couple of weeks I was already so much stronger, and feeling so much fitter, happier and healthier (both physically AND mentally) than I had in my ENTIRE adult life to date (I am 28 this year!!!). I honestly can't thank Lacey enough! Not only is her personal journey an inspiration, but the constant support, encouragement & advice is just beyond priceless and has been the biggest contributing factor to my success so far! I am so excited to continue my transformation journey with Lacey, and I urge anyone who is looking to be the healthiest & happiest version of themselves to get in touch with her! Like me, you will wish you did YEARS ago!!"
"At the beginning of this year, 2015 , I was feeling very deflated. I had been told last year that I had Osteo Athritis in my knee and I was restricted in what I could do with it...including No squats or lunges and no hill running or long distances. I was lost and had no motivation in fitness and health, I needed some direction! As it was Fate had plans for me. I was looking through Instagram for motivation and up pops Lean Like Lacey's own 8 week transformation. She was not only showing people what she had done in 8 weeks but she was offering to help people achieve their goals ,just as she did. The 'Peanut Butter on the Rice Cake' was she was spreading her wisdom at Granite PT Studio's, just around the corner from me!! This was my chance but way out of my comfort zone as I have always been a Mum 1st to my twin daughters and a wife and I have always put myself last, but this time it was my turn. I contacted Lacey, we met at the Studio, she listened to everything I had to say and we just clicked. This day changed my life Forever!! Lacey set a workout program tailored to me and my goals, along with setting up my Macro's for me...a relaxed way of eating with No Restriction's, as long as it fit into my macro's. 'Say what...I can have ice cream, No restrictive dieting?' It was like somebody had revealed the biggest secret in the fitness industry, I knew I was on the right path!! The rest as they say is history. I have never looked back. I am a happier, Healthier, Fitter version of me!! My Sports Physio is in awe of my transformation and the strength I have gained and as such has now discharged me. I am now allowed to do the things I was told I would never be able to do...squats, lunges and hill running. This is all because of Lacey. We train together one day a week in her Studio, where she concentrates on strengthening my legs, as prescribed and I couldn't have gotten a better result!! If you are looking to get 'Lean Like Lacey' with a relaxed eating program, highly achievable workout program with attention to detail and AMAZING results, I highly recommend Lacey, actually I can't recommend it enough!! Thanks to Lacey and her Lean Up program, I have become more confident in my own body and am now on the road to my first bikini comp in the INBA in September, something I thought I would never do!! Live The Life You Love, Love The Life You Live."
"The best decision I have made with regards to my health and well-being, was to join Lacey. I felt previously I was fit by playing sport once a week, however at the same time couldn’t accept how (or didn’t want to) I put on 15kg over 8 yrs. Over the past 10 months with Lacey, under her positive guidance and support, I have lost 10kg, reduced all my measurements and increased my fitness and well-being. I now understand and see the benefits of weight training along with eating well balanced meals. Lacey practices what she preaches and empowers you to be the best you can be. On days I struggle with motivation, Lacey is available with positive ideas and great recipes - always conveyed with such high enthusiasm. I know nothing would have changed if I hadn’t signed up and took responsibility over my health with such a great PT. The best and most rewarding decision I have made. I feel great – thanks Lacey."
"I have always enjoyed exercising and keeping fit and came over to Australia from England in good physical condition. But almost 2 years and lots of eating, drinking and being lazy later, I had put on over 10kgs, lost confidence and missed my former fit body. I came to Brisbane and joined Granite and trained with Lacey after spending a lot of time gaping at her awesome food concoctions and amazing transformation photos on Instagram, vowing to be 'lean like Lacey'! Lacey introduced me to lifting heavy, flexible dieting and minimal cardio and the changes started happening straight away. I was starting to enjoy exercising again and although I sometimes missed running, HIIT was all the cardio I needed- brutal but effective! In 4 weeks I'd lost just over 2kgs (see transformation above) but the change in my measurements, skin tone, strength and mental health were fantastic. I am only human and did falter a couple of times during my training, but the constant support and guidance from Lacey always brought me back on track. I have so much respect for Lacey due to her own amazing personal fitness journey and I have seen her training just as hard as she pushes her clients in PT sessions and during her classes. I love being able to fit my meals flexibly around my macros, even managing to have marzipan for my weekend dessert on occasion! I am so pleased I began training with Lacey. She is an inspirational, kind and thoughtful person who knows and tailors training around you and your goals. See where a meeting with Lacey leads you - you'll be so glad you did! I'm still working on getting 'legs like Lacey', but using her plans, tips and tricks, I know I'll get there. Thank you Lacey."
"Hi Lacey. As the challenge is drawing to a close I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you now before I forget how awesome I'm feeling right now. I think I've mentioned before that I started this challenge about 2 weeks after attending my 20 year high school reunion. While I felt good at the reunion, it only occurred to me afterwards that I had been feeling the same way about my body image for 20 years and despite having taken up long distance running since leaving school, that hadn't changed. Twenty years is a long time to wish for toned legs and a flat tummy and the confidence to wear a bikini! I realised that I needed to do something different but I didn't know what to do. When I saw my friend Shelly looking toned and fantastic at school one day, I took her advice and signed up for the challenge. That decision has become one of the best decisions of my life to date! So far I've only lost about 2/5-3kg on the scales but OMG, the difference in my body composition blows my mind. I look in the mirror and I can not believe it is me. I actually looked at one photo on instagram and thought "That chick looks pretty toned" and then realised "Holly sh*&, that is me!" I now fit back in to my BKW (before kids wardrobe) - it has been 7 years since I fit into some of those clothes! What running couldn't achieve in 7 years, I have achieved in 6 weeks - I still can't believe it! I'm not buying any new clothes until I finish the challenge (except for gym gear ha ha) but I tired some clothes on over the weekend and for the first time ever, I fit in to clothes that I thought just weren't for my body type - "Hello skinny jeans!" Woot Woot!! But it's more than just fitting into clothes and the physical appearances that I am loving. I feel bloody awesome! As you know I have two kids, one of which is my 10month old baby who has been teething through this whole challenge. There were nights were I only got about 2 hours sleep, but I rocked up to class or our sessions and left feeling great and better for it. Instead of feeling tired and run down for the day, I have more energy and feel great that I started the day doing something good for me surrounded by enthusiastic, encouraging people. I have more energy am happier and love feeling challenged. After I finish the challenge, I return to work having been on maternity leave. I have a pretty stressful and demanding job but I now feel like I am better equipped to manage stress and a heavy workload if I keep up with what I've been doing on this challenge. I don't think I could have done this well without you, Andrew, Jarrett and Ash's encouraging and friendly approach. In the past I have felt pretty intimidated and isolated stepping into other gyms but I couldn't believe it when on my first week, every trainer knew my name and seemed to know how to push me to a limit that suited me. Despite being professional athletes and competitors, everyone takes time to be encouraging, supportive and to make sure everyone is challenged. Instead of being intimidating, you guys are welcoming, encouraging and inspirational. At this stage in the challenge, instead of feeling tired or feeling like I can rest on my laurels, I feel more motivated than ever and am ready to really bring it home - I can't wait to see where the next 3 weeks will take me and when its finished I can't wait to take me daughter to White Water World and go on every bloody ride with her! Thanks for being awesome and for helping me achieve a 20 year goal!"
Lacey has changed my perception of nutrition and training for the better! A customised meal and training program was developed for my personal goals, along with the complete package of support including an online forum, recipe ideas and cardio workouts. As a Personal Trainer, Lacey has a positive attitude, bright personality and a genuine commitment to achieving your goals. I tried a couple of training and nutritional guides that didn't give me the results I wanted. I came to Lacey from a client recommendation and never looked back! With Lacey's guidance, I was able to achieve my goals and change the way I think about food and exercise. My whole view on food has shifted and I feel confident I can live this flexible lifestyle for years to come. Many thanks Lacey!
"I absolutely loved the [Granite PT] 8 week Summer Shape-Up. Lacey is one of the best trainers I've ever had. She is motivating and inspiring, and helped me achieve my fitness goals without bullying or belittling me. She is extremely knowledgable on the right training for my post baby body and provided me with the best advice on nutrition"
"Lacey is just about the sweetest most caring girl in town. I hate hate hate any type of physical fitness. It's my nightmare. I also avoid GYMS like the plague. They are absolutely terrifying to me. But this place oh my goodness. Everyone makes you feel so welcomed no matter what size or shape you are. It's been my 3rd week with Lacey. Macros and Training in check. Loving it and killing it. I feel the best this 40 year old working mum has ever felt. Back in control. My husband cannot thank you enough Lacey. He is getting his wife back and my 3 year old is gaining a fitter , happier , healthier Mummy. And for me Lacey, I am just so so grateful my Little Teresa told me about you. This girl is amazing , best fitness support in town."
"For what seems like the hundredth time you find yourself looking in the mirror and staring back at your own reflection. Your eyes quickly find the insecurities that you feel with your body and that voice in the back of your head tells you that you need to do something. You tell yourself that today will be the day that you make a change; that today will be the start of tour new health kick that will see you finally have the body of your dreams, the confidence to wear that bikini on the beach and ultimately be a happier and healthy you. But sure enough, only days later, you find yourself looking in the mirror again, disheartened and lost with no idea what to do. Like so many other females, this was me. For so long I had put my health and weight on the back burner - I made every excuse in the book to talk myself into thinking that neglecting my body was okay. But no matter how many times I tried to ignore my unhappiness, I knew deep down that this was not okay. I would even find excuses to avoid going to the beach purely because I didn't want to be seen in a bikini. Scrolling through social media one night, I came across Lacey's instagram account and her 8 week program at Granite Conditioning. I remember looking at the testimonies of her clients and Lacey's own journey and wishing that could be me. Then, I realised that it could but only if I made the choice to let it be. I remember writing Lacey and email and second guessing whether or not I would hit the 'send' button. My own conscious became my worst enemy constantly telling me that "you won't be able to do it" or "there's got to be a quicker and easier fix". But 8 weeks later and after completing a Granite 8 week challenge with Team Lacey I couldn't imagine the person I have become now if I hadn't taken the risk and pressed send that night. The Granite 8 week challenge with Lacey is by far the BEST thing I have ever done for myself, my health and to find the happiness and confidence in myself that I've always wished for. I LOVE going to the gym and crave the adrenaline rush of pushing myself and knowing that real results will follow! Learning about how to track my macros and the incredible benefits of flexible dieting opened my eyes! What other health and fitness program let's you eat ice cream in your meal planning! HECK YES! Slowly seeing the changes in my body as I set myself new targets at the gym: one more rep, one kilo heavier on the weights or one extra class this week. But what made the most difference was having a trainer who had shared the same journey as me, who believed in me and was with me every step of the way! From my uncoordinated lunges to the times where I'd would falter in my focus and break my healthy eating habits, Lacey was there. She never gave up on me. She never let me quit. She always believed in me. Her approach to training recognises that we are all human. Making a change takes time, focus and persistence and each time I doubted myself she was there to pick me back up and restore the confidence and motivation in myself that I needed. She pushed me to achieve goals that I never thought would be possible. Each training session and group class she was cheering me on or even right beside me doing the very same class. My very own trainer, my inspiration, doing the very same class as me?! Now THAT is what I call motivation! See, that's the thing. Lacey showed me no matter who you are, be that a INBA bikini champ or just a young female who dreams of wearing a bikini to the beach, that YOU have to make the change and do the work. There isn't a 'quick fix' to losing weight. Making changes to your health doesn't happen overnight. But when you put your health first and make it a priority, when you wake up that hour earlier to train or swap that piece of chocolate slice for a healthy alternative, that you are choosing to commit to the challenge of achieving the goal that you set yourself. For me, confidently wearing a bikini on the Gold Coast after completing the 8 week challenge with Lacey was the absolute BEST feeling in the world. So 8 weeks later, what have I learnt? How have I changed? I have learnt that your health is not just a number on the scales. It's not just about being 'skinny'. It's not about comparing your body and your journey to someone else's. Your health is about learning about how to eat well and live a balanced lifestyle. It's about making a commitment to being active and using those around you as a support network to kick goals at the gym. But most importantly, it's about your own happiness and your mindset. 8 weeks ago, a spur of the moment decision to email Lacey, the woman who has been my health and fitness inspiration from day one, changed literally my life. 8 weeks later, 8 kilograms lighter and with 15cm off my waist, I now find myself writing this testament in the hope that my own words will inspire others who find themselves looking in the mirror feeling as though they can't take the very first steps that I did. I find myself ready to tackle my second 8 week challenge with Lacey and ready to kick brand new goals for the year knowing that if I train hard, stay focused and hit my macros that real results will happen. So make the decision to let Lacey change your life! Back yourself, take one small step to big dreams and achieve your goals with Lean like Lacey today!"
"I honestly can't thank Lacey enough for everything over the past 8 to 10 weeks; she has completely changed my outlook on training and nutrition. I had already been training for over a year and thought I knew what I was doing when it came to nutrition, but I always struggled with self control and eating out. In November I took some time off to focus on my mental health, and I was finally back in the headspace of getting back into training when I got the DM from Lacey to say I was one of the winners of her Bikini Transformation Packages. It truly was my turning point. Lacey put together my training plan and macros in accordance to the goals I had set and I grabbed the bull by the horns. My first week in and I was heading to Brisbane for the weekend; Oh no, my fear of overindulging when I was only just starting terrified me! A quick email to Lacey and her supportive words and advice had me full of confidence. I 'survived' multiple trips to Brisbane, plus Christmas and New Year enjoying time with my family whilst continuing my training and following the flexible dieting plan Lacey had set me. There was no fear, no missing out, just family, food and memories. I have always loved training, it was the nutrition side of the lifestyle I just couldn't get a handle on. Not anymore; I have a new attitude towards food, and I have learnt to not be so hard on myself and have more faith in myself. This whole experience has changed my life; I am the strongest I've ever been, physically and mentally. I'm so proud of what I have achieved so far, and thanks to Lacey I feel confident enough to turn my dreams into reality. This is only the beginning!"
"How many times have you tried different dieting techniques? Different fitness regimes? Completed different challenges? Seen a number of different Personal Trainers? Saw some short term results and then progressively over time you ended up right back at square one? Or you may have ended up even worse than when you started? *Puts hand up* - ME, I have, I have tried not just one but nearly all of the above throughout years of my adult life. I was always able to nail one aspect like my training or my eating but I never seemed to be able to combine them and I certainly was never able to stick to anything long term…Until I met Lacey. I started personal training with Lacey when I signed up to an 8 week challenge at Granite PT and from day one she was immediately engaged in every aspect where she saw she could help me. Lacey had no problems assessing my situation and working out the best plan tailored for me and my goals. The difference between her and other trainers to me was that she really took the time to help make sure I was able to apply the things I had learned into my everyday life. She knew when to push me and when I needed extra support, I didn’t feel like I was just another client – I felt like I was her ONLY client. After the challenge finished her support and her determination to help me reach my goals didn’t end there. She continued to check in on me and to adjust my food and training to make sure we stayed on track to keep up with my lifestyle as well inching towards my long term goals. Lacey wasn’t just a personal trainer to me – Lacey was able provide me with the tools, knowledge and support to completely change my life."
