Hi There!

I’m Heather a health nut and serial entrepreneur who is busy raising ballers…. yep my boys are baseball fanatics and I spend my weeknights and weekends at the ballpark watching and cheering them on as they pursue their passion for slugging balls and pitching strikes.

And, while I love playing ball with my boys and doing anything outdoorsy or rugged… such as obstacle course races, gymnastics, snowboarding, camping, wakeboarding and ATV riding through a damp, muddy tropical forest… I also thrive on being girly, glamorous, introspective, compassionate and a bit quirky.

By trade, I’m a fitness professional, nutrition guru, energy enhancement coach, adrenal and digestive health specialist, personal growth junkie and business mentor.  I believe that a healthy body and mind are the foundation for a vibrant and fulfilling life.  My passion is in helping busy women take care of their bodies, discover their unique beauty, build rewarding relationships, pursue their passion, create a business they love and ultimately…. live the life of their dreams.

 

Are you ready to join me on the journey to your best life!

I believe that every woman deserves to live a life full of passion, adventure and vitality with genuine and rewarding relationships, including the one she has developed with herself.  In order to experience all of this, we need to practice more self-care and self-love. 

Strength, energy and the clarity to create our dream lives come from a healthy and optimally functioning body and mind.  Regular fitness, nutrition and holistic lifestyle practices are the foundation for a healthy, joyful and fulfilling life.

We all live FULL lives and are under chronic stress from busy schedules, processed foods, wine (guilty ) and toxins in our environment.  Chronic stress is the leading cause of disease and our biggest joy-kill.  By removing stress and toxins and infusing healing foods and soul-filling practices into our day, we can bloom into beautifully vibrant women who bring joy, creativity and our unique gifts to the world to make it a better place for those we love and live for (including ourselves). 

In my practice, I focus on helping my clients create small sustainable changes over time.  Rome wasn’t built in one day and neither will your ideal healthy life.  The compound effect of small, consistent changes will lead to a dramatically different outcome for you in the future.

I specialize in helping busy women (especially moms) find pockets of time for themselves in their day to practice self-care.  My toolbox is full of quick and simple strategies to get results. 

In addition to focusing on fitness and nutrition, we focus on lifestyle practices that re-energize your body and mind, help you to learn, grow and discover your unique beauty and to live into your BEST self.  And, any time we can, we infuse a bit of fun into our practices!

As an entrepreneur, I’m equally passionate about helping women create a career and business they love.  Having gone through several career shifts to find my true calling, I know how it feels to want for something more.  To want to create an impact, using your God-given strengths and gifts.  I’ve journeyed through many self-discovery practices to learn more about my uniqueness, what drives me and which special skill-sets I bring to the world.  I especially enjoy helping women dive into a health and fitness career, whether part-time or full-time.  And for those already in health and fitness, I can help you to enhance your brand and business success.

I value freedom and independence and believe that every woman deserves to be able to design her own day and create her own wealth.  Building a successful business and multiple income streams is a smart move for every woman.  I can teach you how I’m doing it. 

So what does it take to have a vibrant and fulfilling life? I’ve designed this framework to help you focus on the crucial components:

fitness

Functional Food

Holistic Lifestyle Practices

rewarding relationships

Fulfillment & Purpose

Fun & adventure

Time & Financial Freedom

Personal Growth & Self Discovery

Can you give each of these areas a bit more focus? Maybe not all at once but, you can move the needle on each with small changes over time and in doing so, you can create your BEST life!

Honors & Creations

For the past 16 years as a health and fitness professional I’ve worked with tens of thousands of woman to support them in their fitness and nutrition goals. 

I am the creator of the “5 Move Makeover” fitness video series and the “Vitality Project” holistic body & mind recharge program.  I also Co-Founded The Fit Republic Coaching Team, a mastermind group of independent health & fitness business owners.  The Fit Republic is comprised of fitness enthusiasts and health professionals from across the US, Canada and UK who are building better health, stronger wealth and more time freedom by sharing their passion for fitness with others.

Back in the early 2000’s I co-created the Bay Area Boot Camp women’s fitness program and later expanded the brand offerings and renamed the company AlaVie Fitness.  A few years later, I founded and poured my heart into another outdoor fitness company called EmpowerFit Boot Camp.

For 12 years, I ran two of the leading boot camp companies in the San Francisco Bay Area with over 15 locations, some spanning across the country to Chicago, IL and Austin, TX. 

In addition to helping tens of thousands of people move towards their fitness goals, I also had the opportunity to teach, mentor and lead several hundred fitness professionals as boot camp coaches and fitness managers within my boot camp company through our unique coach training program.

I have been featured in Modern Bride Magazine, Glamour Magazine, on Radio Disney, in San Jose Magazine and in Parenting on the Peninsula.  I received the San Jose Magazine’s “Women In Business Award” and my boot camp program appeared on KTVU Fox 2 News, NBC 11 News and in 7 X 7, Gentry, San Jose & San Francisco Magazines.  We were voted the “Best Place to Get Fit” by San Francisco Magazine and “Best of the Bay” by KRON 4 News.

While I’m super-grateful and proud of the above accomplishments, it’s not truly what defines me.  Beyond these accolades, I would love for you to get to know more about me, and what makes my heart sing.

It hasn’t been all rainbows and pink fluffy unicorns, the journey has been one of failure, resilience, personal growth and finally…. stepping into my own BEST self.

“Heather is a wonderful coach! They don’t get any better than Heather.  She is very professional, knows her stuff and is a concerned caring coach.  You will be very lucky to have her work with you!!! ”
