I have 20 years experience as a personal trainer and 6 years as a pilates instructor. I found pilates after a car accident left me with permanent injuries to my back and pelvis. Pilates is what allowed me to continue to work in the area of fitness and regain my ability to run, cycle and live my life to the physical extent that I did prior to my injury.
I have been fortunate enough to share pilates with many of my clients and to witness the positive effects that it has had on their lives and careers.

Bio for Heather Parsons
Heather Parsons is one of the most sought-after and respected pilates, group fitness and personal training instructors in the Seattle area. For over 15 years she has been a catalyst for change for hundreds of individuals. Some seeking physical transformation, others seeking to overcome injury or personal physical setbacks, Heather’s compassionate-yet-demanding approach has enabled her clients to not only reach their goals, but for many to truly regain a quality of life through fitness and healing of both the body and the spirit.
Having always approached fitness from a highly competitive mindset shaped by years as a competitive cyclist, dancer and rower – a nearly-fatal cycling accident left Heather physically and emotionally devastated. Forced to confront her own personal struggle and grief that surfaced from the accident, Heather not only recovered, but emerged with an entirely new perspective and respect for the human body and how, if properly and intelligently cared for, could bring about more than just physical strength but confidence, joy and peace of mind.
Heather’s ability to connect with the fitness novice, competitive athlete or rehabilitative client decisively sets her apart from the “one-size-fits-all” approach of many instructors and fitness programs today.
Parson’s methodology, while rooted in sound principals based on the client’s current physical condition and/or limitations, is not undemanding, yet clients return again and again to be pushed, challenged and ultimately inspired by her uniquely motivating and results-oriented teaching style.
Heather Parsons is a Pacific Northwest native residing in the Seattle area where she continues to offer a diverse, effective and decidedly mind-blowing fitness experience to people seeking a smarter approach that can produce life-changing results. In addition to her private training and group fitness sessions, Heather is currently launching the Urban Adventure Series where the beautiful and naturally challenging outdoor environs of Western Washington provide the backdrop for a fitness experience with the potential to reveal the natural athlete in everyone.
