The Evolution of GlitterU: A Journey from Dance to Fitness and Wellness: my story

The Evolution of GlitterU: A Journey from Dance to Fitness and Wellness

As the saying goes, life is a dance. And for Heather Newman, founder of GlitterU, that dance began at the age of 3.5 in her hometown of Louisiana. With a passion for movement ignited at a young age, Heather studied dance at the same academy as icons like Britney Spears, laying the foundation for a lifelong love affair with physical expression.

Throughout her journey, Heather's path intertwined with notable milestones. As an initiated member of the same sorority as Carrie Underwood, she cultivated a network of support and sisterhood that would later extend into her entrepreneurial endeavors.

But it was Heather's immersion in the world of dance that set the stage for her transition into fitness and wellness. After graduating from college, she sought an outlet to channel her passion for movement. Drawing from her experience as a dancer, Heather discovered a new calling: teaching group fitness classes.

In 1990, Heather embarked on her journey as a certified trainer and fitness instructor. Juggling her corporate hospitality job at the New Orleans Hilton Riverside, she dedicated every spare moment to teaching classes at various sports clubs, including Cureton's Sports Club, LA Fitness, and Premier Athletic Club. Heather's innovative choreography and infectious energy breathed new life into fitness classes, transforming them from mundane routines into exhilarating experiences.

As Heather's family grew, she adapted her schedule to prioritize her role as a mother. But her passion for fitness remained unwavering. In 2009, she returned to teaching with renewed vigor, fueled by a desire to inspire others to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.

However, Heather's journey wasn't just about physical fitness; it was also a quest for holistic wellness. Approaching the age of 50, she made a conscious decision to prioritize her health by eliminating toxic habits. Heather bid farewell to alcohol in 2017 and said goodbye to diet soda in 2012, embracing a lifestyle guided by mindfulness and self-care.

Today, Heather Newman stands as a beacon of inspiration in the fitness and wellness community. Armed with an impressive array of certifications, including fitness coaching, training, barre pro, life coaching, and nutrition coaching, she empowers others to embrace a holistic approach to health and well-being.

From her early days as a dancer to her current role as a wellness advocate, Heather's journey with GlitterU embodies the transformative power of passion, perseverance, and purpose. As she continues to evolve and grow, Heather remains committed to helping others sparkle from the inside out.

Join us on the GlitterU journey and discover the magic of living your best life, one glittering moment at a time.
