    Heather is just amazing. She's been my online trainer for 3.5 years. When we first started working together, I didn't like to sweat and I didn't really look forward to my workouts. Now I am good with both sweating and working out! Heather has a sixth sense for how far to push me, and has gotten to know me well, which means that she knows how to motivate me to push myself without feeling like she is doing the pushing. When I started with her, I wanted to learn how to workout on my own. I figured I could have a few routines and could eventually use them by myself. While I did get to the point at which I have a bunch of routines (from which I choose for my non-Heather workout days, which she slyly got me to start doing), one of the best things about Heather is how she is always mixing things up and giving me new ways to exercise specific muscle groups. Because of the ways she combines, sequences, and adapts things, there are literally thousands of possible workouts for her to use with me. She's always in a great mood, always smiling, and is extremely attentive to the details of what I'm doing, even from 1000 miles away. She's simply the best!

    I used to work with Heather and took her classes at the on-site fitness center...I have always looked forward to going to the gym on-site and taking her classes...Her personality and enthusiasm is so addicting..She makes her workouts so much fun even if they kick my gear..We recently reconnected and I currently subscribe to her online workouts and I am so happy that I found something that keeps me motivated..Not only is Heather motivating, she makes me feel comfortable about myself and the level of fitness I desire to achieve...
    Her level of knowledge of the resistance training and combination makes her workouts safe and her number one priority is for her clients to do what they feel comfortable and safe while doing her workouts...Anytime I have a suggestion or questions, Heather is available to answer them and I consider her my personal trainer even though we live in different states..
    Heather is a wonderful person who makes me feel that exercising isn’t a chore but can be fun and challenging. I love that her personality and smiles are what makes working out so much fun.

    Heather truly demonstrates a passion and enthusiasm for training and exercise that is absolutely contagious! She is able to motivate me (and others) to be the best we can be through her dynamic and knowledgeable approach to fitness whether it's group fitness, personal training, aqua fitness, or yoga! I have enjoyed participating in all of these classes and one thing that stands out is her ability to provide excellent verbal cueing making the exercise transitions seamless and she always provides variations for exercises to safely meet everyone's fitness level.

    Heather is committed to staying current current with the latest trends and innovations in adult fitness and is more than willing to search out alternative and creative ways to meet her clients needs (think Covid). Heather willingly adapted to the Covid challenge by providing options such as YouTube classes, FaceBook fitness education videos, Skype small group personal training, and even SUP yoga!

    Another thing that I love is the way Heather collaborates with her clients to best determine how to meet our Fitness and Wellness goals through surveys, discussions, educational videos, and social media. I love how even during Covid she managed to keep us connected through her newsletters and social media.

    I highly recommend Heather to help you achieve your fitness goals in a professional, fun, welcoming, and supportive environment!

    Heather is an enthusiastic instructor who motivates you to want to keep going and be a better you. She provides detailed instruction for all levels. I’ve enjoyed watching her videos during quarantine. They have helped me to gain strength and confidence during this time where access to the gym is limited. Heather is a great instructor with years of knowledge in the fitness industry, she is willing to help in all aspects of fitness not just workouts. I highly recommend her for all fitness needs!
