Heidi McIntee's Story

I burn for my kids, my family, and mental clarity. I’ll forever be grateful to Orangetheory Fitness for helping me get my life back.

Heidi's Story

My name is Heidi and my home studio is in Lakeland, FL. My best friend convinced me to try Orangetheory Fitness in January of 2016. From my first class, I was instantly hooked. I needed the push and the encouragement that I felt from the coach. By my third class, most of the trainers knew my name and started to know my story. I burn for mental clarity.

In 2013, I suffered an ectopic pregnancy and the unexpected loss of my brother three weeks apart. Less than a year later, my now ex-husband decided I was "too sad" for him and left me for someone else. I can honestly tell you I just existed until I joined OTF. I am a mother of two amazing boys and joining OTF brought their mother back to them.

I have only lost a few pounds, but know I've replaced a lot of fat with muscle. I've gone from a size 12-14, to a size 8. Seeing my "baby biceps" and dropping clothing sizes is just an added bonus. I know I have a long way to go to keep changing my body, but this is just the beginning.
