Heather was forced to stop training at the University of Bath and moved back home with her parents, funding her continued training with three part-time jobs: as a swimming coach, a barmaid and a physiotherapist.
She qualified for the 2008 Beijing Olympics without funding and went on to win Silver and finish the year ranked No.1 in the World. 2009 brought more medals at the European Championships and Heather remains Britain's No.1 female Pentathlete.
"Winning an Olympic Silver medal was an amazing experience however the opportunity to do something similar in front of a home crowd is just mind blowing. I can't wait for London 2012 and I hope that you enjoy following me on my journey there."
Heather is very popular with the media and the corporate speaking circuit due to her bubbly personality and inspiring story of triumph over adversity. Her plan is to make London 2012 her swansong and fully intends to end her career on a high by winning a medal in front of her home crowd.

This is the most important season in four years for any athlete involved in an Olympic sport and it is now well underway. For me as a modern pentathlete I am currently half way through three domestic competitions. These lead to the next stage in qualifying as they will decide who is given the opportunity to compete a the first couple of world cups in the spring.
This may be our period of winter training when the mileage is upped, the weights are heavy and the hours are long but there are still plenty of competitions to keep us fresh. I personally enjoy competing and enter several events in the individual sports. On top of two full pentathlons I have run in several cross country races, fenced in three British opens and swum for Devon masters at the team regional championships. I managed to do plenty of decent training over the Christmas and New Year period and having just returned from an altitude training camp in the French Pyrenees, I am ready to take on the first World Cups of the 2012 season which I have been selected for.
Are you inspired by Heather's story? Why not help people to achieve their indvidual fitness goals by taking a Personal Trainer Course.
Everyone I have spoken to has gone out of their way to give the best possible help and service. Highly recommended

Very friendly and helpful staff who have explained everything regarding the course I am enrolling on. So far it has been a good experience that I have had with the training room.
Great customer service - the friendly and helpful advisor was able to answer my initial queries and talk me through the booking and payment processes. Access to course materials was provided soon after, with communication from the team throughout. I'm enjoying the course so far and would recommend the company to others looking for IT training courses.
Had such good advise and no pressure into doing anything!! So happy and excited for my new career
Very informative and reassuring explanations of the course and realistic expectations.

Very easy to register and fast contact with an employee, provided career support too.
I thought the whole process was easy to go through and explained great...sammy was a excellent help
At first the price was intimidating but after I realized about all the effort and support that The Training Room is putting into teaching students , I say it is definitely worthed. I just started the first module of a software developer stage and I can tell how well organized and motivating it is and it really makes you to keep going.

TTR couldn't have been more helpful over the phone when I was bombarding them with questions prior to signing on - Sammy Ledden was particularly helpful. Since then my tutor (Hasit Jethwa) has been extremely prompt with marking and general replies, which has made the course very smooth to progress through fast.
Easy to use, book and access.
All the advisors I spoke with were extremely helpful and enthusiastic without being pushy, I didn't feel obligated or forced into registering on the course or anything. They were very informative also, making sure I had all the information I wanted before enrolling.
So quick and efficiant. The best help i could ask for.
