One year ago I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis, not willing to take life lying down but to take charge I made some lifestyle changes like eating and drinking more foods rich in calcium and conscientiously avoiding inflammatory foods. I have always been active, ate overall a healthy diet and kept my weight in check but having a flare up with my Rheumatoid Arthritis after an injury not only was I unable to walk for a while but had to take Prednisone, that among other things depletes the calcium in your bones and boom Osteoporosis! Good intentions just do not get the job done and knowing routine exercise and nutrition are vital for being healthy I sought help from an expert.
What I have noticed at a ripe age of 72 after one year of weekly individual training sessions with Stacia is that I can still reach the dishes up on the top shelf indicating my bones are not shrinking any more and this summer I was able to get up on one water ski (slalom) due to increased strength and something I could not do the past 2 years. Was personal training worth it? YES!!! And an added bonus is: Stacia has become a very dear friend as well, she has a heart of gold. I would recommend her and her services to anyone who has a desire to improve their health and fitness. She lives what she preaches and teaches.
Thankful to have met Stacia and to have taken advantage of the opportunity. I feel my life has definitely been enriched.
When I decided to enlist Stacia in my quest for optimal health as a Personal Trainer. I got more from her then I anticipated as she not only knows exercise, its effects on different muscle fibers in our bodies, how to build strong bones but also the relationship of involving good nutrition to build healthy bodies and bones. She is dedicated to give the best possible experience to her clients as she continues to expand her wealth of knowledge by regularly attending seminars in those areas that meet our needs. I feel privileged and fortunate to be able to work with Stacia who is thoughtful, considerate and has her client's best interest at heart.

"Physical activity has always been a part of my schedule with walking, gardening and regular workouts at “Curves”. As I grew older, I felt I needed a program to improve my balance and strengthen my core muscles. 2.B.FIT TO THE RESCUE.
Working with Stacia to develop an exercise program to meet my goals, begin at my fitness level and challenge me to do more than I think I can do has been a rewarding and beneficial experience. My programs are designed to meet my goals and I can see results. The routines are well planned and time is used efficiently.
The workouts are rigorous, but fun. I look forward to our sessions and feel energized afterwards. “. I’m well on the road to realizing my goals and in the process I’ve lost some weight and reduced my body fat. Believe it or not, I enjoy our weekly workouts. The only requirement for results is a commitment to participate fully in the program. It pays off with a better quality of life! At 28 or 82 it is never too late to begin 2.B.FIT."

"I began my training with Stacia about 2 ½ years ago. With weight bearing exercise I have reversed my osteoporosis. My last bone density report showed my bones to be stronger and healthier. I also see a big difference in my body as a whole…my body is more firm, and my balance has improved, …. I appreciate the encouragement during the sessions and the challenge with each new routine."
Meeting Stacia changed my life. Her thoughtful approach to exercise enhanced not only the idea of exercising, but other aspects of my life: While making supper, instead of sitting and reading until supper is ready, I do lunges; while sitting at work I make a conscious effort to engage my core rather than slouching down at my computer; when picking a box up, I make sure to shoot my hips back and keep my torso long.
But most of all, working with Stacia has encouraged me to be persistent and dedicated in my training whilst having fun. I encourage anyone who feels apprehensive at the prospect of working out and getting fit to contact Stacia immediately, and get started today on a new life.
Thanks again for a great workout! you really have changed multiple aspects of my life and I am eternally grateful. Rebecca B. Harrisburg
THANK YOU again! I sit here and am amazed how much better I feel (even though some muscles ache..but it's all good!), the energy I have and the confidence I now have that I am actually doing this....and on a daily basis. I'm excited to see where I'll be a few months from now. With your continued guidance and encouragement I know I can get the Blood Glucose levels down and keep them down. I made a promise to myself that I will avoid medication at all costs and am determined not to go down that road. Yes, I'm 57 but I certainly don't feel it mentally and if you ask Jeff he'll tell you I don't act it!!

"I started with Stacia a little over a year ago. I had a neck injury from a car accident years ago and after several years of physical therapy and chiropractic appointments, I was feeling like I needed something more. Stacia has done a remarkable job of helping me to rebuild my core stability and strengthening my neck. Even with my severe restrictions on activities, Stacia was able to design a program specific to me to ensure that I get stronger without injuring myself further. The exercise routine has also improved my spirit and now I have more confidence that I can attain my goals. Stacia has a positive attitude and is an absolute pleasure to work out with. She answers questions with enthusiasm and is extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend her services."

"Before beginning with Stacia I was overweight and out of shape. I felt sluggish, tired most of the time and didn’t have enough energy for daily activities . I was on medication for high blood pressure and Type II diabetes, had high cholesterol and suffered with chronic IBS that controlled my life. Stacia started me on an exercise program, first walking, gradually increasing my speed and distance, and doing resistance training which increased my metabolism and allowed me to completely change my body composition. I did not understand how my diet was affecting my health, so she educated me on eating more nutritiously. Through incremental changes to my eating habits and including a structured exercise plan I was able to lower my blood pressure and blood sugar levels, and was able to eliminate the medications for both. My cholesterol levels are now within healthy parameters and my energy is through the roof. I lost over 40 lbs without dieting or even feeling deprived. Best of all my IBS is no longer an issue. This has completely changed my life and I continue to strive for optimum health and fitness. I didn’t realize how bad I felt until I began to feel better, now there is no stopping me."
"Frankly, I thought I was too old for exercise and 2 B Fit Personal Training for I was so stiff and hurt all the time. I was having trouble sleeping. But I couldn’t believe how good I started to feel in just a few weeks. In one month I started to walk the stairs where I live- no more elevators for me- I learned it’s never too late to start to beat old age. Thanks for helping me to turn back the clock."
"It is with pleasure that I recommend Stacia Irwin to you as a personal trainer.
I have been working with Stacia for approximately six months and have seen many improvements in my overall health and well-being.
Stacia has helped me to steadily increase my strength and endurance. When I first started working out with her I had difficulty doing knee bends, lifting heavy objects or working out for any length of time. Sometimes doing routine things like going up and down steps would make my knees ache, getting in and out of a car would be painful, getting off of the floor could be a struggle. Now, I can easily do these things.
I don’t claim to be an athlete, however, I have gained a lot of functional movements, increased my strength and endurance, improved my energy levels and increased my overall feeling of well-being.
Stacia has a unique ability to diagnose and understand where you are at physically and to take you to the next level. She includes a lot of variety in her workouts and this helps to keep the workouts interesting. Stacia is positive and encouraging, she helps you to see the changes that are happening to you.
You may see me riding my bike, walking or enjoying other physical activities now and I thank Stacia for helping me to achieve this and more."

I am a 73 years old lady who had lost lower body strength and mobility. Since training with Stacia I have regained mobility, improved my posture and strength. I’m pleased with how easily I am now able to get up from sitting and get in/out of the car. I have more energy and stamina… It has been well worth my time…

I started coming to see Stacia because my doctor told me I was starting with osteoporosis and should start thinking about doing bone density exercises. I also was not feeling positive about myself. I was feeling weighed down, foggy, no energy or pep.
"After my consultation with Stacia, I thought to myself, ”Oh no! What did you get yourself into! “FUN” is what happened!
Stacia made me work, and have fun, too. She explained why we were doing a certain exercise, what part of the body it would help.I didn’t realize how out of shape I was but after 1 month all the exercises didn’t seem hard anymore like they did at first and I no longer felt weighed down. Stacia’s enthusiasm rubbed off on me and it’s like I woke up, I felt energized , and more alive. She put me in the mood to exercise and made it fun!. If you want to work out and have fun, give Stacia a call!"
