Dr. Stacey Naito (D.O., AOBFP) is a physician and published medical researcher who harbors a strong passion for fitness. She obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science from Occidental College and began working as a fitness trainer immediately after obtaining her degree. Weight training became an integral part of Dr. Naito’s daily routine, even during her post-doctoral residency training which at times had her working up to 120 hours per week. As a result of her determination to continue training during the most rigorous of schedules, she sent a strong message to patients and colleagues that it was indeed possible to make exercise a priority, regardless of how rigorous one’s schedule was.

Dr. Naito’s interest in fitness grew into an all-consuming and life-shifting focus when she began competing in the Bikini Division of the National Physique Committee (NPC) in 2009. She quickly moved up the ranks and eventually earned her IFBB Pro Card in July 2013 at the NPC Team Universe in Teaneck, NJ.

Through Dr. Naito’s experiences she has learned a great deal about every aspect of competing, and she makes every effort to pass this valuable information on to those who are new to the contest stage. When not working as a physician, training, or attending or competing at an NPC/IFBB event, Dr. Naito spends her time working modeling gigs and writing articles. Her involvement in fitness, coupled with her medical expertise, has provided her with a powerful platform by which she can inspire patients and clients to reach their ultimate fitness and wellness goals through optimal exercise and nutrition.
