Heather started CrossFit in October 2008. Her reason was simple, because her son Kevin told her that if she had grandchildren she would not be able to pick them up or be able to keep up with running around after them. That was motivation enough for her.
She had little previous exercise experience. She swam through the summer months and walked on a treadmill the rest of the year. Heather was not able to complete a full sit-up when she first started but can now easily perform most movements and even do an unassisted pullup and deadlift over 100 pounds. When she’s not at the gym you can usually find her curled up with a good book or in the summer months, doing laps in her pool.
Heather has attended three CrossFit Level 1’s and can be found coaching the CrossFit Moncton Masters Class. She enjoys coaching the presses (shoulder press, push press, push jerk) and her favorite thing about being a trainer is seeing the change in members’ minds and bodies.
