HOW HEATHER USES FITNESS TO TURN HER STRUGGLES INTO STRENGTH
"A week after having my first daughter, my little brother passed away (he was 20 years old.) I was depressed about his passing and also depressed at how my body looked after gaining so much weight during pregnancy. My whole life was turned upside down. I had a newborn to take care of but was also under extreme stress.
I started working out at home when my daughter took her naps and eating healthier. Once I started to see results, I was hooked. I now love everything about fitness. I love how strong I feel both physically AND mentally. Fitness makes me feel like I conquer anything life throws my way."
"I am extremely determined. If I set my mind to something, I go for it. Most of the time without even thinking much about it. If I want it enough, you can bet I'm going to get it done."
