Pro Bodybuilder Stacey Cummings Has Reportedly Passed Away

Figure and former IFBB Bikini Competitor, Stacey Cummings has reportedly passed away at 31 years of age.

Early reports indicate that IFBB Pro Women’s Figure Bodybuilder Stacey Cummings has just passed away, according to friends and family close to her. The cause of her death is unknown at this time.

Her friend and former competitor Kelly Lynn made the announcement on a April 20th 2022 Facebook post:

Born in Florida, Stacey Cummings has been in the bodybuilding industry since 2013 when she competed in her first bodybuilding show. Stacey earned her IFBB Pro Card in 2016 at the NPC Nationals and most recently competed at the 2021 IFBB Texas Pro in the Bikini division. Stacy made the switch from Figure to Bikini in less than a year. While Stacey’s death has not been connected to any specific unifying connection – it has increased the discussion and investigation about health in bodybuilding considerably.

Cummings also co-owned Flex Fitness 247 in McKinney, Texas. She dedicated her time to training and as a posing coach working with athletes and wellness clients. Stacey has two children with her ex-husband Bryant Fought. Stacey professionally offered makeup services to female and male competitors at bodybuilding competitions as well as photo shoot and event makeup.

There has been an unfortunate string of deaths in the bodybuilding world that have put many in the sport on notice. Most recently, Betty Pariso put out a statement on social media behalf of herself and her husband, Ed Pariso.

“We are so sad to learn of the passing of one of our own. She was a beautiful person inside and out. Ed and I had the pleasure of working with her many times over the years at our workshops. She was always one of the first to offer her help. She will be missed by all of us. Our prayers go out to her entire family.”
