Heather Kirkwood

Heather Kirkwood

ACE-CPT, Senior Recreation Instructor


My name is Heather Kirkwood.  I am extremely excited to join the team of Personal Trainers here at the Bainbridge Island Recreation Center.  I am a certified Personal Trainer Certificate through Ace Fitness.  I’ve been a Washingtonian my entire life. I am the proud mother of a diverse family, and my husband and I have three amazing boys ages 17, 11, and 8. Our boys are extremely active in sports such as tennis, hockey, soccer, and track. 

I’ve witnessed so many youth injuries due to improper movement, training technique, or simply not working the right muscles for the right sport. Because of this, I have a passion for sports performance and training both youths and adults. 

Through my time as a health coach/trainer at the YMCA, I made it my mission to help clients feel at “home” at the gym. We all have different reactions to the word “fitness”. For some, it is exciting, while for others, it may be intimidating and often depressing. If you are excited about fitness and you need assistance reaching that next level, I want to help. If you are intimidated by the word “fitness” and you feel overwhelmed, or depressed about where to start, I want to help.  

You will likely not dedicate yourself to something you don’t enjoy, so my goal is to help you find that joy and build your confidence. Once you find enjoyment meeting your fitness goals, nothing can stop you. Let’s work together to make your life happier, healthier, and more rewarding.
