Stacey Griffith      

Senior Master Instructor for SoulCycle, Workout Guru

Fitness instructor Stacey Griffith, celebrated as SoulCycle’s ultimate Senior Master Instructor, has been hailed as a “miracle worker” by her cult-like band of indoor cyclists, as well as the press. A transplant from Los Angeles, CA, Stacey’s motivational coaching style is uniquely her own, combining a passion for dance, athleticism, and mind-blowing music—all set to the beat of her voice.

While Stacey is certified on over 5 bikes and even acted as a Schwinn Presenter for the company’s original “Evolution” launch, it’s her life experiences that set her apart from other trainers. Teaching fitness classes since the 80’s, she also studied Ashtanga Yoga with the late Sri Pattabi Joyce in India and even walked across 12-feet of hot coals as a guest of Anthony Robbins for his “Awaken the Giant Within” retreat. She is an IDEA/ISSA certified personal trainer as well, and has an impressive personal training background earning success with extreme weight loss and overall health for her myriad of clients. Because of her extraordinary teaching and coaching skills, Stacey has become known as an inspirational fitness guru leading her to be featured in media outlets such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Self, Shape, Women’s Health, New York Magazine, and the New York Post among many others. She has motivated a loyal and dedicated following over the years as well, including many celebrity riders like Brooke Shields, Kelly Ripa, Madonna, Molly Sims, Deepak Chopra, Cristina Perri, Chelsea Clinton, Kim Raver, Hillary Swank, Matt Dillon, Star Jones.

In the very little free time she has, Stacey loves travelling, paddle boarding, interior design, and fashion. Stacey’s home and offices are carefully designed around pieces collected throughout her life; including Indian mala and inspirational books—it adds up to warm, yet modern, spaces that feel like you are entering a time capsule sanctuary. Close to her heart is a coveted sneaker installation that she has curated over the years and lives in her office holding over 100 pair of brands that are both functional and fashionable including Golden Goose, Givenchy, Lanvin, Celine, Missoni, Nike, Adidas, New Balance, to name just a few. (Office tour can be seen on soul-cycle.com). When Stacey is not in the gym, she can be seen wearing her favorite designers including Helmut Lang, Rag and Bone, Vince, and Lucien Pellat-Finet.

As a board member for Change for Kids, an organization that partners with underprivileged New York City public elementary schools to provide a broad range of essential programming in four core areas (literacy, arts, healthy living, and classroom support), Stacey is also able to mentor new young instructors of Soul Cycle, for which she is very passionate about.
