The Ardent Team

Heather Everhart

Coach / Phoenix Fit Coach

Although I grew up playing competitive travel soccer, I feel that my fitness journey actually began while I was enlisted in the Army as a young adult. It was there that I learned that I could push my mind and body
further than I ever thought possible. I have spent the last two decades challenging myself in different variations of sport such as road racing, triathlons, traditional weight training as well as Olympic weight lifting but my favorite of all is most definitely CrossFit. I love the people and community, the sweat, the soreness, the exhaustion, my failures and frustrations that keep me coming back hungrier for more each day, but most of all I love the successes that come with dedication, commitment and hardwork.

I am a Level 2 CrossFit trainer (CCFT, CFL2) as well as a certified personal trainer (NASM-CPT). I pursued the fitness industry as a profession simply because I love what it has done for myself and I love watching it change people into better versions of themselves. As a coach at Ardent CrossFit, I am now honored to be a part of that for other athletes. I have a passion for athletes starting their own fitness journey as we all start somewhere and each individual deserves the support and encouragement to get them going each step of the way. It’s quite incredible to believe in a person more than they believe in themselves sometimes and then watch them achieve more than they ever thought possible.

The beauty of CrossFit and fitness in general is that it is unending. We can push and go as far as we can dream and THAT is incredible. But, the question remains: Are you willing to push and go and do what it takes to
achieve that dream?
