Heather's story

Hi! Heather here! When I was a young girl - I was called heifer and pukey-girl. I know...kids can be cruel. I was overweight, and was seen as "sickly." Not only that...I was also very depressed. I remember telling my dad that I felt like I was in the wrong body - that I just wasn't comfortable in this one. Fast forward to when I found fitness as a young adult. I started taking fitness classes in college. Anything from swimming to tennis to Zumba. My energy increased, my confidence increased and I just felt really good. I liked it so much that I changed my major to Exercise Science and I've been training ever since. During my internship - I was taken under the wing of a nutrition specialist who taught me the ins and out of a healthy diet. I felt great after finding fitness. After finding nutrition - I felt invincible. I could now manage my weight with ease, but I also slept better, my acne and bad breath went away, I no longer had allergies and hardly ever got sick. Since those first years, I've spent a good portion of my life researching, learning and implementing functional fitness and solid nutrition. And my passion is helping teach people the tools they need to not only live, but to flourish!
