Indoor Cycling Magazine connected with Stacey through social media. We were very inspired with her contributions to fitness and wellness. Her high energy and warm spirit has encouraged thousands to pursue a healthy lifestyle. And exercise science has taught us that a healthy lifestyle increases one’s lifespan and protects them chronic health problems such as high-blood pressure and obesity.
But Griffith didn’t always lead a health-conscious life. In her new book, Two Turns from Zero, she reveals that she struggled with self-confidence, which led to her to drink excessively, do drugs and party.
“It was self-doubt and fear,” Griffith, 49, tells PEOPLE of what led her to rock bottom. “I had a lot of fear of failure. I had that voice in my head. My whole life I thought, I didn’t finish college so I was never going to succeed.”
“The journey Stacey Griffith charts in her fantastic book “Two Turns From Zero” is both inspiring and instructional. Her book is action-oriented and wise beyond measure. It is full of engaging spirit and the true power of love and movement.”—Deepak Chopra
Expert motivator, a fitness virtuoso and a self-empowerment guru Stacey Griffith, SoulCycle Senior Master Instructor, shows you how to take your health and fitness to new levels while using that same energy to boost your emotional and spiritual wellbeing in all aspects of your life.
In Two Turns From Zero, Stacey Griffith, one of the iconic faces of the wildly popular SoulCycle, has helped thousands reshape their bodies, while also becoming their best selves—physically, mentally, and emotionally. Stacey firmly believes that every one of us can be an athlete. Focusing on four key concepts—Eat, Love, Train, and Repeat—this is her life handbook that provides a blueprint for feeling healthy, happy, and empowered. Stacey offers conditioning advice, nutrition counseling, visualizations for achieving your goals, and moving meditations for staying centered. Most important, she shows you how to locate your greatest sense of purpose that will take you to the highest levels of performance—and sustain you to weather life’s inevitable challenges.
Two Turns from Zero is also Stacey’s personal story—a chronicle of endurance that is as motivating as her workout routine. At one time, Stacey was directionless and, by her own account, an overall unsuccessful human being. But she finally realized she wanted more from life—she needed to find meaning. Giving up alcohol, drugs, and partying, she dedicated her life to fitness—a journey of discovery she uses in her book to motivate others to make the most of their own lives.
This gifted instructor is beloved for her ability to inspire and push her students to achieve their ultimate center. In Two Turns from Zero, she shows how we can all achieve our personal peak.
Griffith truly believes that fitness can be healing for anyone that embraces it.
“My book teaches people how to manifest the things they want in their life through exercising,” she says. “If you don’t have a SoulCycle in your community, you have a YMCA, you have a community center, you have a hike, you have a lake. You have to go out and you have to move.”
She also emphasizes the importance of surrounding yourself with a supportive network, and not being afraid to ask for help.
“You have to have your squad,” says Griffith. “If you don’t have a group around you that’s giving you positive motivation and good advice, then you have to change your squad.”
Griffith also believes small steps can lead to major progress, and emphasizes the importance of focusing on the bigger picture.
“It starts with purpose,” she says. “Write down affirmations, make lists of what you have to do to get your head on straight, things as simple as ‘Walk’ and ‘Call your mom.’
