I found CrossFit in 2008, thanks to my boyfriend (now husband). My first workout crushed me, but I was hooked. After eight CrossFit Games appearances, it’s safe to say this sport has completely changed my life!
As a professional CrossFit athlete, I strived to compete at my highest level and have fun while doing it. More than a talented athlete, I was focused on being a positive force in the CrossFit community while leaving my mark on the movement that redefined strength and beauty.
Now retired from competition, I’m still cherishing the CrossFit lifestyle and committed to helping as many people as possible take pride and make strides in their efforts toward health and wellness.
You can change if you want to! I’d love to help.
A country girl through and through, Stacie Tovar grew up on a farm in northeast Nebraska. Her hometown population: 700 people. Laboring long days alongside three siblings, Stacie (the second oldest) learned the power of hard work and patience. Ample time outdoors with little entertainment inevitably sparked some sibling rivalry -- who could run fastest, finish their chores first, or drive the tractor best.
Farm life for Stacie also meant fending for herself in the kitchen and falling in love with wholesome foods. The closest fast food restaurant was 20 miles away, so she learned to forgo convenience and get creative with produce from the family farm and garden. During planting and harvest seasons, Stacie and her siblings often cooked dinner while mom and dad tended to the land. All these experiences planted seeds that would later serve Stacie as an individual and athlete.
Naturally athletic and fiercely competitive, Stacie would often beat the boys at her school in most activities. As a high schooler, she was a standout volleyball and track athlete. After receiving multiple scholarship offers, Stacie chose to play volleyball at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, graduating with honors four years later with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education.
One year after college in 2008 Stacie tried CrossFit for the first time -- after much convincing from her (persistent) boyfriend, Dustin Tovar. Her first workout was a doozy with deadlifts and box jumps. She scaled the weights and movements but still couldn’t finish. Still, somehow, Stacie was hooked, never one to give up too easily.
A mere one year later, Stacie qualified for the 2009 CrossFit Games. Surprised at first, she kept working and continued to qualify the following four years. Turns out, it wasn’t a fluke! In October 2013, Stacie’s competitive spark ignited, lighting the fire she needed to leave her corporate job and pursue her new passion: becoming a full-time CrossFit Games athlete.
The next year, Stacie missed going to the Games by one spot. What could have crushed her confidence only made her more determined. After pushing through adversity, Stacie went on to make three additional Games appearances in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
In 2017, Stacie received a distinguished alumni award from her alma mater and went on to compete in her final CrossFit Games. After giving it her all in front of a sell-out crowd in Madison, Wisconsin, Stacie left her Reebok Nanos on the floor -- a gesture marking the end of her professional career. The fans erupted in a standing ovation in an unforgettable and emotional moment that will be forever etched in CrossFit history.
Now embracing the next chapter in her career, Stacie is focused on helping others as a coach, affiliate owner at CrossFit Omaha, and fitness and nutrition mentor through Go Far Fitness. While she still exudes a competitive CrossFit spirit, she’s training less these days so she can focus more on her family and business endeavors.
Stacie is happily married to Dustin (the same guy who convinced her to try CrossFit). These lovebirds, business partners, and best friends have a son, Gavin, and 70-pound Doodle, Louden. True to her roots, Stacie loves staying active and spending time outdoors. A few of her favorite pastimes include sunbathing, grilling, and relaxing with friends and family at the pool or -- better yet -- the lake.
