Heather is a Certified Personal Trainer and Licensed Massage Therapist. As a former competitive artistic skater who has competed at both the national and world level Heather is no stranger to both setting and achieving goals. Her passion for fitness began when she was just a teenager during her first training week at the Olympic training center in Colorado Springs as a potential Olympian. During that first week of intense training she attended a seminar emphasizing whole body wellness and knew then it was the career for her. Heather has enjoyed working with professional athletes for both Fitness Training and Massage Therapy, teaching group fitness classes, cardio kickboxing and individualized personal training. Being with Pure Fit since day one she believes that pushing her clients to challenge themselves will always be her favorite part.

When not training in the gym Heather can be found just a few doors down from Pure Fit in her office taking massage therapy clients or at home being Mom to her five children.
