Heather is a unique athlete, and an even more unique coach. While you’ll usually catch her on the weightlifting platform, moving kilo plates on behalf of CF9 Barbell Club, she’s also a former gymnast and cheerleader! Challenge her to a handstand contest, and you’ve got your work cut out for you. Pound for pound, she’s one of the strongest athletes in the gym.

Body mechanics are on Heather’s mind nearly 24/7. Her work is in developing prosthetics, and she drives all over the Tampa Bay area visiting patients and making them more mobile.

Need help with your barbell movements? Heather is your lady! Catch her in the evenings in the Big Room on the weightlifting platforms.
