Alecia has been in the fitness industry for over 20 years as a coach, instructor, and trainer. Originally pursuing a degree in Physical Therapy, Alecia taught fitness classes and swimming lessons to earn some extra dough while attending school. Her focus and passion was cultivated as she started seeing others achieve their fitness goals. Personal Training became a natural extension of that path. And the swimming lessons… well, she just loved seeing the kids when they learned how to be independent in the water. And she loved the wet hugs. Can’t forget the wet hugs. Alecia is also on the board for Girls On The Run, a nationwide program that empowers girls 3rd-5th grade to live a lifestyle of healthy living and self-respect.
Alecia enjoys being active with swimming, SCUBA diving, fishing, and camping with her family. She loves to be on the go, and traveling to her next big adventure (which some days is her local Starbucks). She loves to cook healthy gourmet food for her family, and anyone else who will talk to her while she is cooking. Alecia lives in Cumming, GA with her husband, Jeff, and their 3 grown sons.
Stephanie relocated to Cumming 11 years ago from Florida. She previously worked in the legal field, but wanted to focus more on her growing family. In 2014, Stephanie came on board with TRUGrit Fitness, bringing her passion for health and fitness to help organize and grow the business. She enjoys keeping Alecia sane, and helping others achieve their goals.
Stephanie has two children and has been married to her husband, James, for 18 years. She enjoys watching her children playing sports, camping and spending time with friends. Stephanie also has a passion for helping children in her daughter’s elementary school. She has served on the PTA Board for the past four years and founded a new program at the school that advocates for Exceptional Children.
