Smart Strength

At home online training program


Welcome to Smart Strength, the sustainable, long-term way for women to get strong, find balance, and stay healthy. No matter your age, fitness level, or stage of life, now is the perfect time to make strength training part of your life.

What is Smart Strength?

Smart Strength is the product of 15 years in the fitness industry, rooted in my professional environments, experiences, personal successes, and learning from failure.

This is a 12-week online training program that you can start anytime and do anywhere. 

Smart Strength will teach you how to:

  • Adopt an attitude that prioritizes training for longevity as opposed to chasing a daily workout “high”
  • Have the patience and consistency to get just a little bit better, each and every session
  • Gain body awareness so that you can find optimal positioning within your own body for every strength exercise you perform
  • Prioritize three total body strength training sessions each week, following the mantra that “less is more”
  • Achieve a balance between work and recovery—truly living the notion that “everything you do, you must undo”

Check out my equipment recommendations for the Smart Strength program.

Why Smart Strength?

Smart Strength prioritizes three workouts per week. You’ll get comprehensive, safe, and effective training sessions that will work your whole body, get you in proper alignment, make sure your core is firing, and improve your everyday life. You can achieve and maintain an amazingly sexy, healthy, happy body with just three quality sessions per week. Most of what you’ve heard about women’s strength training is dead wrong, and I’m here cut through the bullshit and help you figure out how to make your workouts work for you.

Is Smart Strength for you?

Smart Strength is for women of all ages and abilities who are ready to throw out what they think they know about strength training and ready to adopt a program that works.


Smart Strength is about working out as few times per week as possible — or at least the fewest times you can while still seeing the results you want. Plenty of women have routines that involve running six days a week, or hitting the gym five mornings before work.

But what happens when life gets in the way? When you get a new job, and your commute gets longer? Or when you have a kid? Or get hurt? Those five or six days a week you need to maintain slowly drop down to four or two or none.

Smart Strength is not a 90-day hardcore plan that will get you in great shape but turn your life upside down. Smart Strength is simple, effective and sustainable. It may not be the “latest fad” but it FUCKING WORKS.

If you have ever wanted to work with me, but money, distance or time was too much of an obstacle, then Smart Strength is for you. Smart Strength is an entirely online program that gives you the flexibility to work out wherever and whenever you want. If you were to train with me in-person three-times a week for 12 weeks, you would pay $3,600. Smart Strength offers all of my knowledge and guidance for just $97.

The results don’t lie…

I LOVE that my posture has improved (ribs over hips) and I stick my butt out less. I’m not sure if that was due to habit or being nervous + unsure of myself and DAMMIT, I’m feeling better about myself and caring LESS about what people think about me or the things I do (especially at the gym)

For that, I am grateful for Stacey’s great coaching and Smart Strength workouts.

Smart Strength has helped me really embrace the “less is more” mantra of fitness.

Smart Strength completely changed my view of fitness and what I need to do to stay in shape… the workouts are brilliant. They are efficient, effective and safe for my body. I workout less and look better than before. I highly recommend Smart Strength for the business women in the world who want to maximize their time spent in the gym, look great, and not wreck their body in the process.

Smart Strength changed my idea of an effective workout and introduced strength work into my routine–body weight exercises I could do at home; kettlebell training to improve my core stability; and lots and lots of lunges (fire those glutes to protect my back!). This program helped me realize that even if I wasn’t 100% all the time, I could still progress with simple modifications to stop the pain and build my strength. I have dropped inches, lost a few pounds, gained them back in muscle and have realized how strong and able I am. My back feels pretty damn good, too! If you are ready to change the way you think about exercise; about exercise after injury, and the way you think about your overall health, I strongly encourage you to give Smart Strength a try.”

“This program really would have helped me in high school, when I wanted to learn how to strength train, but there wasn’t a class for it and the weight room was very intimidating. Knowing then what I know now could have prevented some injuries. I too have a bad “0 to 60″ habit when I exercise. The knowledge I’ve gained from this program along with Stacey’s nutrition program has been life-changing.”

“Smart Strength really worked for me. To be able to strength train at home was key for me. Every exercise was easily explained in the youtube videos, from beginner level options on up. I was able to challenge myself, increase my weight and really see a change in my body over the 12 week period. I know have a great program to always use and refer back!! The Facebook group page was also very helpful. There is nothing like a community of women learning from one another and encouraging each other along the way. Thank you Stacey, you are a ROCK STAR!”

“I am beyond grateful for Stacey and her Smart Strength program. I was one of those women who was afraid of weights and lived with the assumption that I would get big and bulky if I lifted. I’m so happy that I put those fears aside and started this program. I have never felt stronger (aside from when I had my daughter ☺ ). I have learned a lot about myself physically and what I am capable of, and have developed a serious love of weights. I am hooked on kettlebells! Thank you for helping me regain a consistent active lifestyle and self confidence. ☺”

“I can definitely see an improvement in the way I carry myself, my strength, my focus, and my determination. I also feel less achy from old injuries! I’m super glad I signed up for this and Stacey has been so supportive and helpful throughout the process. That is a huge part of my success. Thank you for your commitment to strong women!”

Congratulations on an amazing program! I have seen my body change and strengthen in ways that it never has before. Many of my “problem” areas post two pregnancies are looking and feeling great! I appreciate that you have created a women’s workout program. It’s great to be doing something else instead of stressing my body with running all the time and not ever find the strengthening I am looking for in yoga. Thanks so much for this gift.

“Since working with Stacey privately and in classes to train to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro several years ago, I have continued to build on her lessons about the value of sensible strength training in surprisingly manageable doses. Since then, I have summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, gotten married, changed jobs and moved. I continued to strength train sporadically but knew that I needed a more structured approach. Smart Strength and Fast Fitness have been exactly what I needed to get back on track and maintain a meaningful strength program regardless of what else is going on in my life. Whenever anyone asks me what I do or complains about their own fitness, I recommend Stacey and her approach to strength training!”

Hi. I’m Stacey!

This photo is a rarity seeing as I’m rocking makeup, headband-less and wearing actual clothes. I am a personal trainer/ nutrition coach based in Boston + Andover. I am also a wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend. Helping women feel strong and capable in their minds + bodies for the long haul and allowing them to truly realize their potential, is my passion. I am lucky to make a living doing what I love most and I will NEVER sacrifice my beliefs in order to do so. I practice what I preach and am open and honest about my struggles/challenges. I wake up most days, way before the sun rises and as a result you will most likely find me in bed by 8pm. My obsessions with sneakers, coffee, handstands and hydrating myself are borderline obsessive. I crave nature + sun, and when I combine those with daily movement, I am my happiest self. In the past I have been extreme in my approach to exercise + nutrition and as a result have suffered greatly mentally + physically. I have had long love affairs with running, yoga, bodybuilding as well as kettlebells. No amount of healthy eating, sleep, movement or stress reduction enables me to function fully with my depression; so I take medication, and I am more than okay with it. The fact that I get to help others with exercise and nutrition is a dream- come- true.                          

My progress not perfection approach to health is moderate (not hardcore) and I know that this is not for everyone. I don’t want women to make the same mistakes or struggle like I have. We are all SO much more than our bodies and our outward appearance. Three years ago I had my first daughter Julia; and my second, little Eva, is almost a year old. I’ve experienced pregnancy, postpartum and had a taste of motherhood and I have LOTS to say about it all.
