While working as an EMT firefighter in Northern California, Heidi developed a passion for helping people recover from their physical injuries (much like Joseph Pilates). In pursuit of this passion Heidi received her BS degree in Exercise Physiology from California State University, Chico in 2000. She soon became the fitness director at Sporthaven Health Club where she managed the personal training department and taught spin classes.
Heidi had done so much in the fitness world but had always wanted to try Pilates, so in 2007 she joined a Pilates studio in Sacramento, California and absolutely fell in love with it. Heidi began studying Pilates and completed her certification in 2008. Today she teaches mat and reformer Pilates and prides herself in her ability to tailor her programs to meet her clients’ personal goals and her ability to make your workout a good one.
Why do you like teaching?
I believe the body is absolutely amazing and I love it when I can see a clients lightbulb moment. The moment when they understand how capable they are and how powerful their body can be. It literally gives me the chills
