Heidi Powell is the ultimate female force. She is a trainer, transformation specialist, devoted wife, mother of four, savvy businesswoman, author, nutrition nut, and overall health guru.

Heidi empowered thousands across the globe as the matriarch and tour de force for the often-struggling participants, serving as their daily fitness coach, voice of reason and biggest cheerleader.

In March 2017, the Powells launched their debut digital platform, TRANSFORM with Chris and Heidi, with the goal of transforming one million lives. The app has received over 300K downloads, has over 25K active users, and provides users with the motivation, exercises, nutrition, and built-in community for a successful transformation. In November 2018, the Powells launched TRANSFORM 2.0, which offers users macro tracking capability, hydration tracking, and user statistics, where they can track their hydration, nutrition and workout completion rates over time.

Heidi writes an incredibly successful blog, where she shares her insight and expertise on health and wellness trends, fitness regimens, healthy recipes, family-friendly workouts, marriage and parenting advice, navigating life with a blended family, and her secrets to balancing it all. Over the past few years, Heidi’s brand has grown extensively since she put herself on the other side of transformation and documented her own experience training and transforming her body as an NPC bikini competitor in the bodybuilding world. After much hard work, Heidi proudly became an IFBB Bikini Pro in July 2017.

Last June, Heidi and her husband Chris were awarded the prestigious Jack LaLanne Award at the 2018 IDEA Convention in San Diego, the largest global fitness and wellness event in the world. This annual award honors those who have made a significant and lasting contribution in fitness, nutrition and wellness, inspiring the world through work in the media or public eye.

Adding best-selling author to her list of accolades, Heidi coauthored Chris’ second book, Choose More Lose More, for Life, which immediately soared to the top of the New York Times Best Seller list. Additionally, The Powells released their latest book in December 2015 entitled, Extreme Transformation: Lifelong Weight Loss in 21 Days, which provides a comprehensive blueprint for changing your body—and life—in just 21 days.

While simultaneously filming and coaching private clients and participants from Extreme Weight Loss, Heidi and Chris travel the country for speaking engagements and appear regularly on national television shows such as Good Morning America and The Dr. Oz Show. Heidi has graced the cover of several publications to date, including both Oxygen Magazine and Muscle & Performance in 2016. She contributes regularly to Redbook Magazine and is part of the Women’s Health Magazine Advisory Board, where she offers expert advice on a regular basis.

Heidi has more than a decade of experience as a personal trainer and holds both ACE and Crossfit certifications. As a coach, mother of four, and manager of their family business, Heidi brings a whole new perspective and level of compassion to the Powell’s approach, helping others overcome many of life’s challenges to create effective, long-lasting success.
