"Wellness means living well. It means having consistency in your daily actions and making sure those daily actions will create a long health span. Wellness means living a long healthy life free from chronic diseases and instead living a life full of vitality and love." - Heather
Over the past 25 years, I have attained multiple certifications and have directed many wellness programs, I have been a Master Trainer for international fitness brands as well as having created my own fitness brand “Sweat Like A Girl”. My most current endeavor has been writing an awesome wellness book that will be published this summer which will assist women and anyone who reads it to take action in their life through self-love!
Getting Started: Mobility & Strength
If you’ve failed at sticking to a fitness routine in the past, this workout is for you! It’s slower paced but super fun! You will not only get started, but stay motivated to stick with it. 💪
Stretch Your Body
You’ll love how this full body stretch is perfect for working on your flexibility and stretching out sore muscles.
Q) What keeps you motivated when you “just aren’t”?
A) Consistency and having a schedule for sure. But sometimes it is ok to realize that the motivation is not there and then decide it might be a sign to realign your schedule/goals or maybe you simply just need to take a rest day. One of my favorite things to do is to listen to positive motivation whether it’s from a real life coach, podcasts, Burnalong partners, or books. I drown out the noise from that mean girl inside my head with positive affirming words, and I continue to show up and take action!
Q) What’s your favorite aspect of group fitness?
A) The sense of community. I loved it back in the 90s and still love the excitement and energy that cannot be matched by leading a group of people in physical activity! The camaraderie that occurs in a class setting is unmatchable. I love having all different levels coexisting in the same space and feeling proud of what their body can do regardless of what the person next to them is doing. I love fostering a “come as you are while not judging anyone else” attitude in the group fitness classes I instruct.
