Hi! My name is Heather Stevens and my Blog is about keeping it simple. I’m a certified Pilates Instructor, Yoga Instructor, Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor. I’ve taught just about every class format imaginable in my 20 plus years in the Fitness Industry. I predominately teach Pilates, Yoga and Barre classes currently. I try to utilize all my training and education and put a little bit of everything in my workouts for both me and my clients. I’m excited to share my workouts with you! I’ve tried to keep my videos brief so that you will get the idea of what to do and then follow through on your own. If you are like me, you don’t want to watch a 30 or 60 minute video and carry your phone around to do it!
I’ve trained to the extreme during my fitness career and have competed in Bodybuilding and Fitness competitions. Those were grueling days of doing 2 hours of cardio and restricting my diet to boiled chicken breasts and yams! Ugh! Now, however, my own fitness regime is a little more normal. As I get older, I want to stay fit and healthy to do all the outdoor things I love like hiking and traveling! In this blog I will try to give you advice on how to be fit and healthy without spending a lot of time doing it. Effective and efficient workouts are key. Why spend time doing cardio then weights when you can combine it all together? I also hope to inspire you to try something new in your life or workouts with my Inspiration Page.
I currently live in Denver, Colorado. I travel to Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area and Kauai to do workshops and trainings. My next big goal is to launch Fitness Retreats around the country, so be watching for those!
My goal here is to help you simplify your workouts and certain aspects of life. Most of us don’t have the luxury of working out out for 3 hours each day or having a personal chef at our disposal. Wouldn’t that be lovely? I will give you tips and motivation on your workouts to make them more effective and efficient. Joe Pilates believed that if you did an exercise correctly with proper form and alignment, then the body would only be able to do a few reps. How’s that for efficient? More is not necessarily better!
On the same day I launched this site for the first time, I found out that Websters Dictionary inducted WTF into its dictionary. Recognizing it as an official word. Coincidence? I think not. Hopefully they will amend it to be synonymous to What The Fitness!
I’m looking forward to this journey!
