Heather played Division I rugby for Cal (2006-2011) and continues to play for a local club team in the Women’s Premier League.
Heather has experience in weight lifting, plyometrics, fitness, running form, injury rehabilitation and weight loss/maintenance.
In addition to personal training, Heather also teaches Olympic style weight lifting at the RSF and is a strength coach for the Cal women’s rugby team and the Berkeley All Blues, a local women’s rugby team.
Heather enjoys playing rugby and occasionally other sports, weight lifting, hanging out with friends (which usually involves food), reading, working on DIY projects and discovering cool, random adventures in the bay.
Heather believes that attaining the fitness and health goals one sets is achieved through hard work and smart planning. She understands that putting in work is what gets results. She has personally worked hard to rehabilitate her knee after surgery during her junior year of college and recently lost 30 pounds through weightlifting and nutrition. She guides her athletes and clients towards their strength, fitness and health goals through hard work, planning, nutrition and sound goal setting.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
