YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS……… MEMBER OF The MONTH IS HERE…. And this month we get to celebrate Stacy Andreotes. Did she win this highly sought after award because it was part of the deal when she let me live in her basement… yes of course…(I am kidding relax). Stacy, we ALL know is a 6:30 am staple. With partitions, we all knew to not take her cube (I saw this intelligent successful woman straight up unable to compute what to do with her body when one morning someone was in her cube…. The one next to it was wide open but still, could not compute). Stacy has become a huge part of the personality of the 6:30 am class and truly welcomes everyone that walks into that packed class. Stacy we LOVE you.

- How long have you been doing CrossFit and how did you start?
This seems crazy to me but I have been doing CrossFit for just about 8 years now! I got started a few months after I gave birth to my first son. It was a rough road in those first several months of momhood, and I really wanted to start taking care of myself and getting back into shape. A friend of mine at work suggested I give CrossFit a try. I went to check it out in Southie and saw that the intro WOD was a 7 min AMRAP of 5 thrusters (empty barbell), 5 burpees and 5 box jumps. I thought “7 minutes……..how could anything be that bad for 7 min?” O.M.G. I honestly thought I wasn’t going to survive that workout. But something inside me said, if it’s this hard, it must actually work, so I signed up right after that intro class and the rest is history. Best decision ever.
- What do you do when you’re not at TILT?
I’m a managing director in audit at a big 4 accounting firm (nerd alert!). But probably more importantly, I’m a mom to an 8 year old (Weston) and 6 year old (Paxton) who are the most lovable tiny humans and also complete maniacs. Those two things take up pretty much most of my time, but I’ve also upped my cooking/baking game since quarantine started.
- What is something most of TILT doesn’t know about you?
I am a complete true crime podcast JUNKIE. Prior to Covid, I spent a lot of time in my car driving to clients, and I got totally addicted to true crime podcasts. I would get to my destination and just sit in my car for another 20 minutes because I couldn’t turn them off. Some of my all time favorites are In The Dark (especially season 2), Up and Vanished, Cold, Root of Evil, and of course Serial. If you want more recommendations, I’m your girl!
- Have you had a favorite moment at TILT?
This is impossible to answer because there are so many tiny moments all the time that make Tilt the freaking awesome community that it is. But I will say that Tilt has given me some of the best laughs I’ve ever had, and I think it’s probably a tie between (1) coming back to Tilt in early July 2020 after being on lockdown for months and getting to see everyone in person and workout together again outside and (2) the in-house throwdown we just had, where my team was supposed to be dressed as Mr. Clean but instead basically looked like a trio of D*%@#$ (sorry if I offend, but there’s honestly no other way to describe it). Shout out to Brad for just going along with the whole thing and thanks to Lindsay for making us wear bald caps and then having a fit of laughter so hard that I pretty much peed my pants.
- Most importantly, now that you have the Member of the Month belt, what would your walkout song be?
This is a tough one but I’m going with Nice for What by Drake…………..I dare you not to like that one
SIDE NOTE – I know I’m not really supposed to do this, but wanted to take this opportunity to tell you all how much I love you guys and I’m going to miss every one of you so damn much. I never imagined when I stepped into Tilt that it would change me so drastically as a person, but that’s exactly what the coaches and the members have done for me in the most positive way. I have gained so much in mental and physical fortitude, but also made the most incredible relationships that can’t be broken by a little bit of distance. I owe so much to this community for supporting me, pushing me, and always being there for me, especially over the last year and half when the pandemic made shit HARD. I am forever grateful that I stepped through those doors 3 years ago and you can bet your ass you’re not rid of me completely because I will come visit whenever I can. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to all of you for making me a better person.
