In this episode I'm chatting with Heather Nasella, a certified personal trainer and expert homeschooler (she's been at it for almost a decade!)
Heather is an expert at creating an effective home workout space and strategy for women who either can't get to a gym or simply prefer the convenience and privacy of home workouts.
She shares how she started working out at home, how she turned that practice into a virtual personal training business, showing other moms how to create the space in their home, and their lives, for life-changing fitness .
