Heather is a recent transplant from the beautiful Northwest, where she grew up in Oregon. But she’s found there’s nothing quite like the Bay Area when it comes to enjoying gorgeous weather and the great outdoors. Heather brings with her a strong passion for cardio kickboxing, and is ready to share her love for fitness while punching, kicking, and sweating to motivating and energizing music. She has been a student of cardio kickboxing since 2002, became certified to teach in 2011, and has been instructing in the Bay Area since 2012. Heather’s classes are a dynamic fusion of mixed martial arts and boxing-style movements designed to build cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, balance, and flexibility. Heather believes the increase in self-confidence and stress relief are also major benefits to this form of exercise.
