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.
Really happy that I found the Training Room and now that I have signed up through the help and support from Laura, on the back of the first time we spoke about the course and the company. I knew that it was the right choice for me through instinct. Really looking forward to studying the course and working with my tutor Liz who also made my introduction onto the course so smooth so far. Results, results, results. Lets chase them step by step.
Great to be onboard, lets see how the journey goes.
Ria helped answer all my questions, and offered to put them in writing as there was a lot of info. Not pushy with the sale and allowed me to talk with my partner and didn't push for an answer there and then, so organised a call back the next day. Everything has run smoothly and I can't wait to begin to the course!
The experience was really easy, and everyone has been very helpful.

Adam was very informative of the whole course and answered by queries very comprehensively. Above all he was not pushy about the course.
Training room service is efficient and the people at the other end of the phone helpful and friendly. All the information is thoroughly explained with clarity giving complete confidence. They are easily contactable through email and will return calls when asked too.
From the serviced I've received so far I am inclined to continue my own development with them and sign onto my level 4 after I I pass my level 2 and 3
Exceptional customer service. After being behind both Amanda and Luke took time out of their days to make sure that I was on top of things and and knew what I was doing. I was super grateful of and they really went above and beyond to make sure everything was sorted.
The service so far as been super amazing. Luis and Shawn provided me with all the information I needed to start my course. I am really excited about it. My tutor Claire has already reached out to me and said she is there for me. The service is just wonderful.
