My name is: Heather Marr.
I’m known as: A personal trainer.
My expertise is in: Aesthetic training.
I stay physically healthy with: A combination of weight training and cardio. I practice what I preach and take setting a healthy example for my clients seriously. I do food prep weekly and fuel my body with healthy, delicious food, the majority of the time.
I do have a few products that I absolutely love and consider my “lifestyle support staff.” To help stay hydrated, I drink one bottle of Halo daily. When I’m on the run and need to rely on a whey isolate, my go-to is Isoflex.
I keep my emotions balanced with: Exercise. The gym is as much therapy for me as it is a workout. It really helps to keep any stress or anxiety I’m experiencing in check. I clear that time for myself daily to decompress, and I always leave the gym feeling better than I did when I walked in.
I’m intellectually stimulated by: Constantly reading textbooks, case studies and taking courses in my spare time. In my field, you can very quickly become obsolete or irrelevant. You need to be knowledgeable and prepared in order to deliver the best results as quickly and easily as possible for your clientele.
I was recently transformed by: I wish I had a less superficial answer to give, but the truth is I recently had a botched tear trough filler procedure. This experience made me realize that I don’t need or want to keep trying to compete with my younger self. I have had a hard time with aging, and this experience made me take a look at how I want to approach it going forward: naturally and with grace.
In the last six months, the ritual that has become so important for me is: Stepping away from my phone daily. A large part of my business is online, in different countries with different time zones. The number of messages that accumulate from clients and well-meaning friends can be very overwhelming some days.
Here’s how you can do it too: I used to open my emails and text messages first thing in the morning, starting my day with a rush of stress and adrenaline. I no longer do this. I get up, have my coffee and get ready before opening the floodgates. At night, I turn my phone off and disconnect totally, now. I recommend that anyone struggling with similar issues gives these ideas a try.
It helps me live my process because: I am able to take time for myself and practice self-care. I’m an introvert and need time daily for myself to disconnect—even from loved ones.
