From the beginning

Stacy Houser founded Temple Challenge in 2014 with one goal in mind: to make the Parkersburg community “healthier." 

Now more than 1,000 people have taken the challenge, with many transforming their life. What started as a simple idea and a challenge in one location (Elite Sports Center), is now a franchise all around the state with momentum to take it even further. 

The key to the success of the Temple Challenge is that Houser makes things new and interesting every class, since “every single day, you’ll never have the same workout - ever.”

Houser has based her training workout for the challenge on “the way that I like to train myself and that is keep changing to keep people interested and wondering, ‘What is she going to do next?"

With degrees from the University of Maryland and Ohio University, Stacy uses her combination of education, experience, and passion to inspire and encourage entire communities.
