"Heather's Gym is a fitness party! Heather has created a gym to benefit all ages with an atmosphere like no other. Heather is leading a team of EXCELLENCE with an abundance of energy, her love of fitness is absolutely contagious! It's evident her team of instructors truly love what they do and are always providing modifications so every class is accessible for all fitness levels. There is such a great selection of classes it can be difficult to choose which class to attend at times.
There is a comraderie among the community of participants that is warm, welcoming, and fun, but always focused on the common goal of mind and body fitness. If you go into a class feeling a bit blah - I guarantee you will exit with a renewed spirit of mind and body. Being a more "mature" participant I have found the energy at Heather's Gym has allowed me to push myself a bit harder, set and achieve personal goals, while truly enjoying my workouts. Heather's Gym, is my Fountain of Youth!" - M.A. (Awesome HG Member)
