I started working with Heather a couple of years ago. After running a half marathon, I was unable to run a couple miles without pain. I found Heather and following a thorough movement assessment, she explained how my dysfunctional movement patterns were affecting my running and how she could help me. Her workouts were designed with my running goals in mind. With the help of her program, I was able to run a pain-free half marathon the following spring! I continue to work with her to improve my running and prevent injuries. Heather is very knowledgeable about fitness but what sets her apart from other professionals is how much she personalizes the program to fit you. She genuinely cares about her clients and wants to help them achieve their goals. If you’re looking for a trainer, look no further!

I first met Dr. Heather when I observed her working with our Pilates instructor before our class. Heather was clearly knowledgeable, bright, and holistic. Her style and demeanor communicated that she was both caring and talented. For several years, I endured a nagging shoulder injury and wondered if Dr. Heather could help. Because Heather is a Chiropractor, accomplished athlete, and fitness trainer experienced in rehabbing injuries with a holistic medical and functional strategy, I hoped her more complete approach to correcting my problem could restore mobility and resolve the ongoing discomfort. Within a month of working with Dr. Heather, she fully corrected my long-term injury and started me on a maintenance regimen to restore wellness and position me for greater fitness. I had never encountered anyone like Heather who was capable of assembling a comprehensive approach that addressed the entire kinetic change in an integrated formula. She designed a custom plan for me to achieve noticeable results in such a short time. Her knowledge of physiology, anatomy, and the causes of a wide range of impairments has been unmatched. I was so delighted with my progress and outcome that I started working with Heather to move beyond my injury and to improve my health with a personalized exercise plan, nutrition strategy, and injury prevention as I mature and age. We have been so impressed that we even started our teenagers on a training program with Heather so that they can prepare for their sport seasons and adapt their fitness to their growing bodies. I feel so very fortunate to have discovered Dr. Heather and I am grateful for the pronounced and meaningful difference she has made in our family’s health and wellbeing.

I started working with Heather back in April due to knee pain that I was experiencing and I didn't even realize at the time that it was possible to do physical therapy and personal training online. I was skeptical at first, but I was very surprised to learn how convenient and effective it is! Heather is incredibly knowledgeable and is easily able to take whatever equipment you have on hand (or lack thereof) and create a totally functional workout that you can do at home, or you can choose to "meet" with her virtually at your own gym. I would highly recommend this service to anyone, whether you are just beginning your journey or whether you are looking to move up in your fitness level. I have gained not only physical strength, but also confidence in myself and I can't put a price on that! 100% recommend!
