Welcome to Heather Fit, my YouTube channel! Here, I post educational videos to inspire people to live active, healthy lives.
As someone who struggled with both anxiety and depression, I know firsthand just how difficult it can be to get started on a health journey. In addition to my mental health issues, I also dealt with many physical issues including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), food allergies (oral allergy syndrome) & migraines with aura.
I wouldn’t say that I suddenly had this “lightbulb” 💡 moment where everything fell into equilibrium and I suddenly became healthy & vibrant. The reality is that I struggled for a long time before figuring things out, and I am still figuring things out today. As a Master of Kinesiology student, I was inspired by my own journey in using exercise to help cope with my symptoms of anxiety and depression. This led me to conduct research on an exercise-based mental health intervention for students. As I have immersed myself into the field of physical activity promotion, I became inspired to share this knowledge with others and help others live active & healthy lives. As I began to notice progress within my own personal fitness journey, many people around me began asking me for guidance or advice to help them on their own journey. I became even more motivated as the people around me began living active lives and sharing their own stories with me.
I now find myself here, with numerous fitness certifications, & I am finally in a place where I feel ready to help others and share my story. I am SO EXCITED to bring to you Northern Girl Fitness, which is a kick-ass community whose mission is to empower women to embrace their health with SELF-LOVE.
The goal of my YouTube channel is to make fitness easy for you. Here, you can find inspiration to get you started, amazing fitness videos that will get you moving, and reliable health information that will keep you on track throughout your own personal health & fitness journey.
