The business of health and fitness: touring Raise the Bar with Heather Greenwood.

Heather discussed her passion for fitness that led her to open her own business. What started out in a smaller facility and rented space had grown into owning her own building, a growing membership, and a diverse offering of workout equipment and fitness classes.

“Follow your passion,” she encouraged. Like the saying on the wall, “God gave you this day, it’s your choice what you do with it.” In that regard Heather has turned her passion into a thriving business, making the most out of every opportunity.

That is, until COVID shut her business down. “If I were totally honest, I cried for weeks. But then I prayed about it and God brought me through it.” When asked how she navigated the pandemic, Heather explained that she froze the memberships and did what she could to get by. Then, after a few months, she has reopened with a strong return. “People are asked to wipe down and before and after each workout, and use the hand sanitizers.” Which, she continued, are added expenses but necessary to keep the doors open.

In the end, Heather reminded the team that physical health influences one’s mental and spiritual health. And in doing so she enjoys providing a service that is helping others get through the tough times, too.
