Heather Lethbridge , NASM Elite Trainer

Bio

I am a NASM Certified Personal Trianer with a degree in Psychology. I am a firm believer in the power of exercise, the power of the mind and that a connection between the two can bring more awareness, happiness and satisfaction into one's life. I not only want to help others get in great shape physically, but also get into great shape mentally. "I Think therefore I am!"
 I have been a personal trainer for a little over 6 months now, and have started my own business and am finding much success and joy working with my clients. I have been working out and exercising all of my life. My mom says that at 3 years old I use to wake up at 6 AM every morning and do Mousercises! I grew up doing aerobics with my mom and playing sports with my dad. I played sports all through collge and was captain of many of my teams. As an adult I run, weight lift and do yoga. Fitness, health and wellness are my passions in life. They keep me centered and focused, help me find who I am and what I really want from life and give me the energy I need to create the life I want!

If there is anything I can do for, if you need anyone to talk to you, or just have a few questions please don't hesitate to contact me! Email me now and I will gladly help you as best as I can!!
