Heather is a XaBeat instructor with a passion for fitness and connecting with people. I love inspiring and uplifting people to feel confident about themselves. I'm a mom of 4, and when I'm not running from hockey practice to dance rehearsal, I am pursuing my other passion, cooking nutritious meals and helping others live healthier lives. I enjoy running, yoga, Pilates, and strength training. My goal for clients taking my class is that they walk away with an amazing cardio workout, and can't wait to come back for more.
