About TGIF

Here at TGIF In Home Personal Training, I am 100% committed to helping you reach your health and fitness goals in the comfort of your own home. I understand how important your time is and how busy life can be, which is why I make it a priority to fit YOUR training into YOUR schedule! Each of my clients will receive a personalized fitness program tailored to their specific fitness goals, needs, and capabilities. On average, this program will be revised every four weeks to ensure the client sees continuous improvement in fitness level and body composition. Injury prevention and rehabilitation are extremely important components of every workout, which is why it is beneficial that your personal trainer is also an OKA certified Kinesiologist. As a Kinesiologist, I am able to provide my clients with the safest and most effective fitness programs possible.


Hi! My name is Heather and I am a certified Personal Trainer, Fitness Instructor and Kinesiologist. I live in Mississauga, Ontario with my husband and our two dogs. I started TGIF In Home Personal Training after quitting my job in the summer of 2011. For me, fitness is t part of my everyday life. It is what I am passionate about . My goal with TGIF is to help you become the strongest, healthiest you possible.

This is a picture of my husband and I just before our July wedding in 2012.

This is Rex. He is half Doberman, a quarter Rottweiler and a quarter German Shepherd. The first picture is of our little Rexy on the day that we picked him out from his litter. He was about 6 weeks old then. The second picture is a few months later standing on his favourite rock. Today Rex weighs about 80 pounds and is our big cry baby :)

Say hello to Reina! She is a Doberman….Something. We were told that she was a Doberman Rottweiler and that she would weigh between 110 and 120 pounds. Ha! She weighs about 60 pounds soaking wet, but even with her small size, she’s still the boss of her big brother. She loves people, cuddling, swimming and food!

This blog chronicles my journey in health, fitness, and life. Every recipe that you come across on this blog has been made in my kitchen, served at my table, and eaten by my family and friends. When it comes to the recipes on this blog, you will find a little bit of everything. That’s because I eat everything. There are meat dishes, vegetarian dishes, vegan dishes, raw dishes, and “wow that girl is a crazy health nut” dishes!


Save Time and Money:
Travel time can take up a good portion of your day. So we thought we’d make things a little bit easier and come to you! TGIF Personal Training Sessions are affordable on any budget and don’t require a hefty membership fee each month. Invest your money in quality personal training that won’t break the bank!

Very Little Equipment Required:
TGIF personal training sessions require very little, to no equipment at all! The equipment we use regularly is very inexpensive and doesn’t take up a lot of room to store. Contact us today to book your free in home fitness assessment and find out how easy it is to get a great workout in the comfort of your own home!

Working with a TGIF Personal Trainer will allow you to see greater results in a shorter period of time than you would on your own. Our trainers are required to perform monthly fitness assessments and body composition measurements to ensure that you are on the right track. These assessments will provide you with the information and motivation you need to continue to push towards your fitness goals!

Lets be honest, we all have those days when we just don’t feel like we have the energy to workout. And if we were working out alone, we would probably put our workout off until the next day. But with a TGIF Personal Trainer that isn’t a problem! Our trainers are here to provide you with the motivation and encouragement you need to push through your workout and feel great about it! Why wait till tomorrow, when you can train today!

Exercise Effectiveness:
There are so many different exercises and training styles out there, how do you know which ones will get you the best results in the shortest amount of time? Call a TGIF Personal Trainer to help! Our trainers are here to provide you with the knowledge and know-how you need to use your training time to the max! Knowing which exercises to do and exactly how to do them will save you loads of time in the long run!

Proper Intensity:
“How fast should I run if I want to lose weight?” “I have high blood pressure, how do I know if I am pushing too hard?” “How do I know if I am not working hard enough?” Our trainers can answer these questions and give you the piece of mind you need to be confident in your training regimen. TGIF Personal Trainers are there to monitor your training intensity so that you can have a safe and worry free workout!

Progression and Variety:
Doing the same routine over and over again can get really boring. It also isn’t a very effective way to train. Our bodies are designed to adapt to the stresses we place on it. This is why we are able to see changes in muscle size and strength, as well as decreases in body fat percentage when we workout. If our fitness routine isn’t revised regularly, our bodies will become accustomed to that stress and we won’t be able to see any further benefits from our training. Here at TGIF we update our clients training programs regularly! That way you don’t plateau!

Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation:
Many injuries are caused by performing exercises incorrectly. The problem is, we don’t always realize when we aren’t doing an exercise properly. TGIF Personal Trainers are there to ensure each exercise is performed correctly to protect your joints and muscles from preventable injuries.

It’s very easy to convince yourself that you don’t have the time to workout, but when you have an appointment scheduled with your TGIF personal trainer, you strive to find the time! When your energy is low, give your trainer a call! Their job is to be there for you!
