What to Expect

I make a promise to each and every one of my clients on day one that during our time together I will devote 100% of my attention to their needs, questions, and concerns, we will build a strong relationship through working together, allowing us to reach any goal desired by the client. I also promise my clients that training will be fun and we will not settle for anything less than that! We all have a limited amout of time in our days to do what we want, and if they have chosen to spend 1 hour of their busy day with me to help them better themselves mentally and physically I owe it to them to always give 100% and always make sure they have fun and want to come back because they feel the change from the inside out!

Heather Lachance....best personal trainer

AWESOME

I’m disappointed. Disappointed that Heather left New Zealand to head back to the US and I lost my awesome PT! Heather is amazing and I can’t recommend her enough. I met her when she was working in New Zealand and I was lucky enough that I got a coupe of months training with her. I’m not a natural in terms of pushing myself to exercise, and the whole concept of working out is a bit daunting to me. However, Heather quickly pushed that daunting feeling away and made me feel totally at ease, and within one session she made me want to come back for more. She is a such genuine person with a kind heart, and will put any person at ease regardless of their situation. You can see that her work as a PT is so much more than just earning money - she really cares and wants to make a difference. Heather has a knack of knowing how an individual needs to work, whether hard core or a softer approach - I’ve seen both styles with her and I feel I sat in the middle - she pushed me in a way that suited me, working me hard and making me hungry for it, without me resenting it. I can highly recommend Heather as a Personal Trainer, she's the best!

Get in shape with Heather

Heather is an excellent trainer who gave me different exercises that gave me the personal results I was looking to achieve. She made each workout different and exciting. Highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how they can get into shape!

My favourite personal trainer

Heather is so up beat that you just can't help but smile and laugh during your workout. Her anatomical knowledge is impressive and she is incredibly responsive to her clients needs.

earned my respect and confidence

To whom it may concern,
I have known and trained with Heather Lachance for almost 2 years and I am pleased to have the opportunity of providing a letter of recommendation on her behalf. As with any trainer, you want someone energetic and motivational, Heather has that spirit. However its her knowledge of physical fitness an her ability to listen and teach that earned my respect and confidence. Heather Lachance would be an asset to any organization.
sincerely,
Darlene

Heather is a pro and. Great choice for PT

After 3 sessions with heather I'm finding muscles I never knew I had. Great attitude and patient but she does push you. Forget about telling her you can't do something; she will prove otherwise I highly recommend this

Knowedgabe, fun, approachable!

Heather was a delight to work with. From the very first session I felt that she really listened to what I wanted to get out of my sessions and responded with a brilliant programme that suited me, my body and helped me to achieve my goals. If Heather was available to work with again I would not hesitate to employ her very knowledgable services.

Heather heals the mind and the body

After a back injury and physical therapy I was terrified to get back in the gym. Heather, with her patience and knowledge, reassured me and assisted me in strengthening my core, confidence and understanding of my body and the changes that had occurred. She practices what she preaches, believes in living healthy and will create a new you that is strong and confident.

She is the BEST!

I truly give Heather all the credit for helping me change my lifestyle. She gave me the confidence to explore a healthy and active way of life. Heather not only guided me to becoming strong but she helped me realize that eating habits were as crucial as exercise. She has such a positive outlook on life and she is true motivator!

Inspiring!

Heather is an amazing personal trainer! She is so passionate about fitness, health and nutrition. She is so motivating and really helped me push during my training. She's truly a beautiful person and anyone would benefit from training under her. I only wish she was still in my area so I could still train with her!
