Michelle Minster-Munoz

Although Michelle has only spent the last 7 years working as a Group Fitness Instructor & Personal Trainer, she has had a lifelong passion for fitness.  This passion may have begun when she played Volleyball for Montclair State University during her Freshman Year.  Michelle graduated from MSU in 2004 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Theatre Arts.   She then spent the next 6 years of her life traveling around the country having adventures as a Flight Attendant.  Along the way, she lived in 4 states- California, Illinois, Texas, and Massachusetts- and visited many European cities, including London, Rome, and Munich.  While traveling, Michelle earned her MBA in Marketing from South University.  She also fostered her love of fitness by becoming an avid runner.  She was able to run half marathons in Phoenix, Chicago, Anchorage, and Virginia Beach, to name a few stops on her tour.

Currently, Michelle sustains her interest in fitness by learning as much as possible through her fitness mentors (including her BFF, Jessica) and earning fitness certifications.  She is currently certified in BOSU, Boot Camp, & Stretching and envisions earning many more fitness skills in her future.  Michelle enjoys outdoor activities such as bike riding, kayaking, and eating ice cream, as well as more audacious endeavors like Ziplining and Mud Races with her new husband, whom she drags along for all of her adventures.  They are always looking for new members to join their Corny Peeps Racing Team so let her know if you are interested in participating!

Stacey Gillman

Stacey loves dogs and doughnuts…..(Especially Gus, her 4yr old Golden)

Most recently she has become a Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach having attended the Institute for Transformational Nutrition and is using it to help others while researching a cookbook designed to make everyday cooking healthy and taste better. She also earned a B.S. in Psychology from Ramapo College in 1991 and studied counseling in the master’s program William Paterson University.

Stacey has had a life long passion for fitness beginning at age 5 when she began cheerleading, which she continued to do through college. She later coached cheerleading for 6 years in Pennsylvania as well as coaching cheerleading camps in Colorado for WeSportU.

She has also been an avid runner having competed in both track and cross country in high school where despite her short legs,  managed to set a school record in the 400 her senior year. She has continued to run recreationally for years after.  She enjoys walking (with Gus), biking, hiking, yoga and most activities outdoors.

In 1990 she was diagnosed as a brittle, type 1 diabetic which currently requires she wear an insulin pump 24 hours a day. This has lead to many other complications including 2 heart conditions which ultimately ended up with receiving 4 stents which she lovingly calls John, Paul, George and Ringo. Stacey hopes her struggles with her health serve as inspiration to others who might say “If she can do this, I can do this too.”
