    I have been taking Heather's classes for years and also do personal training with her and I absolutely love it! She teaches a variety of classes such as body works, yoga, cycle, aqua aerobics and more!
    Heather is such a positive, motivating person and very knowledgable. She gives modifications for every exercise so you can choose what level you're most comfortable at. If you have any injuries, Heather is great at giving you an alternative exercise if you are unable to perform a certain one. I have had knee, back and now shoulder issues and Heather has been wonderful at directing me to the safest exercises to still get a great workout. She is very safe and I feel super comfortable with her instruction and teaching style. I highly recommend her!

    Heather is the best fitness instructor I have ever had. From the moment you meet her with her smile, encouraging, and motivating personality you will know you are in good hands. I have been able to work with Heather multiple times in group fitness and paddle board sessions. She listens to you and your needs, and molds her workouts to her clients. During classes she explains and demonstrates each exercise clearly, while explaining why we need each one. In a group fitness class she is able to make every move work for every fitness level. She is very knowledgeable and able to answer questions and guide you in the right direction. If you are looking for an instructor to get you the results you want and make it fun along the way she is the one for you.

    I have had the privilege of working with Heather on a number of occasions, including one-on-one sessions and group settings. Something that really stands out to me is her ability to guide her clients to their goals within a safe and effective environment - by providing clear, effective instruction for each movement. She does this in a way that appears effortless, which tells me her foundational knowledge of physiology and human kinetics is rock solid.

    If you are looking for a fitness professional that you can trust - someone who will strategically and skillfully guide you to reach your full potential - then I highly recommend Heather!

    Visiting Sanibel for the first time, I had the great fortune of having Heather be my instructor for Stand Up Paddleboarding. She was patient and encouraging. She took us out for a wonderful afternoon near Bowmans Beach. Her enthusiasm was infectious and I cannot wait to try the sport back home in California. I highly recommend Heather if you plan on going Paddleboarding!

    Heather Simpson = Fabulous Instructor!

    Heather is by far the best fitness instructor I have ever met. Besides her incredibly friendly smile, and positive demeanor, Heather has a depth of knowlege of the human body, body mechanics, and health and fitness that most instructors only dream of possessing. Heather is able to tailor her workouts for novices and those in the advanced group, while at the same time providing accommodations for those who are injured. Not only does she explain and demonstrate each exercise, while giving targeted variations, she teaches her students why she has incorporated these exercises into this specific workout routine. And her routines are always changing to allow you to grow in your level of fitness.

    Last week I had the misfortune of taking a spin class taught by someone other than Heather. I have never missed her more!! The other class was unorganized, disjointed, and without clear purpose. I left class feeling confused, while the other students spoke of what a nice experience it was. The people saying that had never taken Heather’s spin class. It seems that I am no longer willing to be in classes with the “typical” instructor, after several years in Heather’s programs. I have taken Spin, Bodyworks, Yoga, Aqua Fit, Step, and Bootcamp with Heather over the last several years at LA Fitness. Outside of class I have attended her Foam Rolling workshop and Paddle boarding excursions. Every activity Heather does is first rate! You will never meet a more dedicated, professional, experienced, knowledgeable and all around friendly Fitness Instructor/Personal Trainer than Heather Simpson.
