10 Questions With Stephanie Missey

1.) Stephanie where are you from?

I’m from the Lou and I’m proud, as Nelly so graciously stated. Love being from the best baseball town in America even though we lost the World Series to Boston (insert Clancy dig here). 

2.) What brought you to Verve?

I came to the realization while in school that I needed to do more than study and sit in lectures. A girl I was in school with was coming to Verve and she loved it. She introduced me to Zink and that’s all she wrote. 

3.) Why is Verve better than everything else ever?

Verve gives you so much…..I’ve gotten great friends, great coaching, great roommates, great inspiration, and great fun out of one place. It’s the best place ever! 

4.) Who is your favorite trainer?

That is so tough. I love all of the trainers at Verve….they are very special people that have to deal with us at our most vulnerable and our proudest moments. It’s a hard job that each one takes seriously as they pour their heart and soul into it. 

5.) What is your favorite, and least favorite WOD? Why?

I love lifting heavy and I love chippers (generally because, like most people, I like my reps to decrease as time does on). 

6.) On a scale of 1-10, how much better of a trainer is Luke compared to Eric and Courtney?

I mean, Luke’s jokes are pretty amazing…even if I am the only one that gives a chuckle at the beginning of class. But Eric has the sickest dance moves (have you ever seen his C walk??)…..and there is Courtney who has good jokes AND good dance moves. Then again, Luke is moving and well….I just can’t even go there (tear). Next question.  

7.) Outside of coming to Verve, what do you like to do with yourself?

That’s a good question. This is the first year (ever) that I have not been in school, so I am taking this year to find some new hobbies. One of these days I plan on learning how to ski, unfortunately the idea of letting gravity take me down a mountain somewhat frightens me. I’ll get over that eventually (I hope). 

8.) If you could move anywhere on earth, free of charge, where would you go?

I have moved every single year for the last 11 years. I am enjoying and finding peace in standing still for a moment. Besides, it’s not where you are, but who you’re with that truly matters. #dontmovepalmisanos 

9.) You are a Physician Assistant, which allegedly takes some schooling to become. So… say something smart. Go!

Hmm…something smart. I can tell you that one of the smartest things I have ever done was join Verve! Oh and here is a lil inspiration courtesy of pinterest: The difference between try and triumph is a little umph! 

10.) All right Stephanie. What would you like us to know about you??

Oh I don’t know. I’m a pretty down to earth gal just trying to enjoy the journey. AND, I read the blog religiously and now understand the pressure you all are under while writing them. Kudos.

Stephanie, we love having you here. Don’t go anywhere!
