Meet Coach Heather!
At the age of 50 I had finally had enough. Years of Paleo, Atkins (original Keto), restricting, undereating, overeating I decided I needed to educate myself and improve my relationship with food . I didn’t just want to maintain my athletic performance I wanted to take it to the next level. My goal was to obtain the awareness and understanding as to what my body needs daily to be as healthy and strong as possible. I wanted to spare my teenagers (both male and female) from experiencing the same cycle. Six years ago I hired an online nutrition coach and my journey began.
Working with a nutrition coach is so much more than just macro counting and meal prep! It’s about understanding what you need to be the best version of yourself. It’s about taking control and making your nutrition and health a priority. The goal is to take the power away from what you think you “should do” and create the awareness as to what your body actually needs. You will become stronger in so many ways.
I am a certified Nutrition Coach with a Precision Nutrition Level 2 Masters Certification. I am also certified by BCRPA and have my Crossfit Level 1, NCCP Level 1 Olympic Weightlifting and my ASFA Senior Fitness Instructors certification. My athletic background covers 36 years in which I have competed in multiple sports. I have run many marathons and triathlons; I am a 6 times Ironman Triathlon competitor, including the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
I competed on Crossfit VicCity’s first every Regionals team. I have achieved multiple Canadian top 3 placings as a Crossfit Masters Open Athlete. My passion now is Olympic Weightlifing and I continue to represent Canada at both the IWF World Masters Olympic Weightlifting Championships and the Pan American Championships. I have been a Nutrition coach as well as a Crossfit and Olympic Weightlifting coach for the past 3 years and every day I enjoy helping people become strong, confident and healthy. I have been married to my husband Bob for 30 years and have raised three amazing young adults now aged 21, 19 and 17.
