    I have been training with Heather for 3 years. When I first started I was very overweight, just diagnosed as being Diabetic, and probably had not really moved in years. Now, 50lbs less, Diabetes is under control, and I can move, oh yes I can move. Heather is not only so awesome at training, but encouraging, motivating, a great listener. She is always helping me to do better, to keep at it, even when I don't want.
    I just love Heather and all she has done for me in my life!!!!
    Thank you Heather,
    Laurie S.

    I have been working out with Heather for almost 2 years. She has helped get my body in shape as well as my mind. She has helped my confidence grow in all aspects of my life. I would definately consider her more of a life coach then just a personal trainer. She is there for you mind, body, and spirit. She can work you out at any level you need. During group sessions she is mindful of each individuals needs, but never forgets to keep the group going as a whole unit. My life could no longer be complete without my her. Thanks for all you do,
    Melissa

    Heather is an awesome and inspirational trainer! She has a unique blend of training expertise and caring that helps to keep me motivated toward my personal goals. She has a breadth of knowledge to adapt any exercise to the level of the individual. She inspires and motivates me by her level of dedication and joy in helping others achieve their goals. Heather has a way of training that helps me to continually improve and not give up on myself and to see what is possible. I love that her approach is to focus on health and fitness and practical approaches for busy lives. I am so grateful to have her as my trainer!

    The last three years have been an amazing journey for me and Heather has been there every step of the way. I have learned what my body is capable of, loosing 29 pounds in 10 weeks and I have also been forced with the challenge of trying to keep that off. Most recently I have learned how to balance real life in with my weight loss and I have been able to maintain my weight loss for the last 6 months. Heather has been my main support and inspiration through this all. She has taught me how to celebrate all of my success and how to handle my failures too! More than anything, she has taught me how to understand how my body works and to use that knowledge to my advantage. She understands that we can not always be perfect in maintaining our diet and fitness and that life can throw us challenges that often get in the way. Heather reminds me that there will be highs and lows and the true challenge is about finding a balance that works for you. I am grateful to call her my trainer and friend and look forward to all that she will continue to teach me.

    Heather is an amazing trainer! she is able to modify any workout to any fitness level, and can also accommodate injuries :) (I broke my foot in September, but was able to continue training with her help!) Heather showed me that going to the gym can be fun and you can achieve your health and fitness goals with a little motivation! She genuinely cares for each of her clients, and puts you through an individualized workout that is designed to get you closer to your personal goals. She even motivated me to become a personal trainer myself!

    Thank you Michelle! You've proven to yourself day in and day out that anything is possible! I've enjoyed watching your develop and grow into a phenomenal trainer. Keep up the good work!
