Heather Bergeron

Owner / Coach

In the 20 years that I’ve been teaching fitness, I’ve come to realize that exercise has the potential to be more than just something we squeeze into our schedule a few times a week. If we invest the energy and time, it has the power to make many other facets of our lives incrementally better as well. At some point, we’ve all experienced it with working out: the harder we work and more consistent we are, the more we want to clean up other areas of our life too. For many of us, whether we are competitive by nature or avoid it like the plague, training with others who are working towards similar goals builds that fire within us…AND makes the whole trip a lot more fun. One of my main goals in training clients is always the same; to let people leave all of their ‘baggage’ at the door and empower them to surprise themselves with what they are actually physically capable of.

Nothing means more to me than my family.  Absolutely nothing.  And, one of the things I love the most about CrossFit is that it is something that my entire family can share together: husband, children, parents, grandparents.  It makes staying fit and active, eating a clean diet, and supporting a full-blown community so much a part of our lives that we are all on this crazy cool journey together that can only land us a better life than we could ever have dreamt of before we found CrossFit.

Similarly, I couldn’t be more grateful for the role I get to play with CrossFit Kids.  We all think back to our own childhoods and wonder what where we’d be had we started when we were as young as some of these kids.  I get to help make this a reality for kids that walk in our door every day.  I take that very seriously.  My own kids help me understand the balance required to keep kids interested WHILE helping them really appreciate what this whole thing is reeeally all about: leading a clean and strong life, having fun, and supporting each other along the way.  Just waiting to see which of our CFNE Kids will be on the CrossFit Games podium some day!
