Kettlebells, TRX, & Barre

This class is taught by:

Heidi H.

Heidi Hogue graduated with a BA in English Communications & is currently working as a pharmaceutical sales representative for Daiichi Sankyo. Heidi has a background in personal training & competing in local & national figure competitions. Her love for fitness began after she hit a personal low with her weight about a year after she was involved in a tragic car accident in which both her mother and brother passed away. Heidi turned to food and an unhealthy lifestyle to numb the pain, but soon realized that this was not the life she was intended to live. Seeking direction, she hired a personal trainer & learned about eating healthy foods, strength & cardiovascular training and soon began to see changes in not only her body but the whole direction of her life. This strong foundation of knowledge has become a passion that has become her way of life.

Always eager to try a new fitness activity, Heidi took her 1st Kettlebell class from Dina Juve and Tish Cerioni-Zafferano last year, 6 months after she had her daughter. The results she got in a short period of time exceeded her expectations and this phenomenal comprehensive workout has become her primary fitness focus. Heidi got KBI certified in October 2012 so that she could teach & share with others the amazing results that Kettlebells offer. In March of 2013 Heidi received her TRX certification.

Ludmila W.

Ludmila Woodruff moved to Fresno from Antwerp, Belgium with her husband and three-year-old son in August 2014. Ludmila graduated with a MA in translation in English, Dutch and Polish in Antwerp in 2007. When she was younger she was always involved in sports and especially enjoyed swimming, becoming a lifeguard at the age of 17. When she moved from her homeland of Poland to Belgium at the age of 19, the intensity of a new culture, work, and University studies together all pushed sports activities off of her priority list. After her second son’s birth in June of 2016 she felt physically and emotionally exhausted. Ludmila realized it was time to prioritize her mental and physical health again, for both herself and her family. She signed up at FitnessSocial in September 2016 and worked hard and consistently to regain her energy and loose the weight that was making her feel so tired. She loved the workouts and the community of FitnessSocial. A few months later she committed to work with Dina Juve on weight loss, stress management, and to prepare for the Cardio Code Certification with Dr. Kenneth Jay. Ludmila attended the Kettlebell and Mobility training in LA in May 2017 where she received her certification. When a teaching opening arose at FitnessSocial, Ludmila was excited about the opportunity to help others and share her love for the movement, self-care, self-love and health that comes from physical activity in a supportive community. Ludmila is very enthusiastic about her results and how the whole process has helped her lose weight (25lbs), find a new passion, have more energy, and rediscover herself again. Ludmila teaches Kettlebell classes and incorporates TRX, Pilates, Barre and much more to keep her workouts engaging and effective. Her mantra is ‘commit, show up, smile and do what you can with what you can today, and the rest will fall into its place.

My love of movement began at the age of seven when I started dancing. I studied Tap, Ballet, and Luigi style Jazz all through my childhood. In 1991, at the age of eighteen I began teaching. I taught in Fresno for my wonderful teacher and mentor Terry Clark for seven years. In 1993, Terry opened a second studio in Clovis which I managed with a colleague and taught classes until 1998. At the Dance Centre I taught Tap, Ballet, and Jazz to children as young as three and as old as sixty eight. Combining my love and dance movement with my love of children made all my years of teaching a wonderful and fulfilling experience. From 1995-1998, I also taught for Fresno Unified School District at Balderas Elementary School. They were fortunate to have a humanities program where all the classes rotated through art, music, story-telling and dance. At Balderas I was able to design classes that involved motor skill and movement pattern games and songs as well as cultural dance. This was a wonderful opportunity and challenge teaching in such a different environment from a studio setting, with so many different personalities, ages and backgrounds to interact with.

In 1998 I moved to San Francisco where I lived until 2002. While there, I taught for Lisa Brown at the Sunset Academy of Dance in San Francisco as well as for Cece Bechelli at Happy Feet Dancing School in Mill Valley, Ca. I was fortunate to meet and work with both of these talented ladies and share my love of dance with their students as well. There are so many ways to live healthy and enjoy the benefits of exercise and it was great to share my skills and experience with other talented people while of course learning from them as well.

In 2002, I moved to Seattle for a year where I worked in a day care center and was able to care for children who were younger than I had previously worked with. Working with the one to three year old children was a delightful surprise and my love of children grew.

When I returned to Fresno I began study in child development and taught part time. I soon became a full time mother and continued to teach part time until the birth of my second daughter in 2007. In 2010, I was introduced to kettlebells and interval training with a crossfit style. In 2011, I was introduced to Dina Juve, who is the only women Russian Kettlebell Certified (RKC) instructor in the Fresno area. With her I began study of RKC style kettlebell training and was introduced to the TRX suspension training system I fell in love and was thrilled to learn a new form of movement that I enjoyed so much. I was even more thrilled when I experienced such fantastic results and was able to return to my pre-baby weight and strength. I continued to increase the frequency of my workouts because I enjoyed every single one. In March 2013, I earned a certification in TRX Suspension Training and in November 2013 I received my Kettlebell Movement Code Certification with Kenneth Jay & The Kettlebell Institute.  I  continue to love this journey of movement learning and feel fortunate to be able to share my love of movement with others!
