    Heather is simply the best fitness professional. Her classes are nonstop fun, challenge and never ever dull. Plus, I've had the opportunity to work with Heather one-on-one for personal training. She managed to provide me with challenging workouts that I could tackle with a chronic (and painful) sports injury. In addition, she offered alternative workouts I could use while on the road for business travel. Believe all the reviews as she is simply the best.

    Heather is an incredibly talented instructor and personal trainer. Her classes are terrifically fun and a GREAT work out. She varies them every week, so you constantly are challenged. I also have personally trained with her, and I highly recommend her. She will whip your body in shape in a few weeks based on your personal needs and goals! She also is the consumate professional. After each session, she emails you the complete rountine! Fabulous!

    I have known Heather for a couple of years now and have found her to be hands down the best personal trainer and fitness instructor I have ever come across. She is challenging, yet supportive. You will never leave one of her classes without saying "Wow! What a work out!" I look forward to any opportunity I get to be able to go to one of her classes and see what she has in store for us. I would recommend her to anyone!

    I have been a Heather "groupie" for many years and have taught fitness classes myself. Heather is the best fitness instructor I have ever experienced. Her classes motivate and challenge, and she has a great wealth of knowledge of exercise physiology. Her classes fly by...........her timing, pace and cues are excellent!

    I have been taking Heather's classes for a few years now and they are my absolute favorite! Heather's classes are the only ones I never miss because they always make you feel rejuvenated after! I have defiantly lost weight through her classes and she always managers to motivate me throughout class, especially in the end when your about ready to give up! I look forward every week to see what she has planned!
