11 Questions with Heather Marsh

Interview with one of our newest Fitness Gurls Athlete stars

Heather Marsh is one of the most inspiring women in fitness. She’s a mother, a WBFF Pro Competitor and one of the top up-and-coming fitness models today. We sat down with the Fitness Gurls Athlete for our 11 Questions interview feature. Enjoy.

How/when did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?
Actually, I was just scrolling through Bodybuilding.com one day and came across an article on bikini competitions with NPC. At that point, I had been working out consistently for 2 years and just thought that would be a great way to test my limits and try something new. I competed with NPC a couple of times before switching over to WBFF. I competed in Vegas in August of 2015 with the WBFF, where I won my pro card. From there I’ve just learned the importance of balance through trial and error over the years.

What is the most challenging thing about being a fitness model?
Time management, between spending time with my family, meal prepping, working out, traveling, training clients, and just life events, in general, it gets hard to keep my head on straight sometimes.



What products and supplements do you swear by?
Fish oil, daily vitamin, a B-Complex tablet, and a protein a powder. I take those on a daily basis and I’m also a big believer in buying a reputable brand.

What are your top 3 favorite exercises?
Wide grip lat pulldowns, lunges, and lying hamstring curls.

Do you listen to music while you train? If so, whatโ€™s your favorite type of music you like working out to?
Absolutely! Hip Hop/Rap is my go to for a killer workout.

Do you ever encounter stereotypes with the way you look?
I definitely hear “oh I bet you workout 7 days a week!” or “you must have a super strict diet!” Those are two of the biggest misconceptions. You can still enjoy higher fat and carb foods, just eat them in moderation and workout hard 4 to 5 days a week just make sure you are taking some active rest days and full rest days to allow your body to recover and heal.

What is your current training style, routine or split?
I definitely love heavy weight training, that’s my usual go to however I do like to do lighter weight and higher rep workouts. I’m currently training 4 days a week with 3 rest days.

What are your favorite clean foods and splurge foods?
Clean foods – mahi mahi, sweet potato, & zucchini
Splurge foods- burgers & cupcakes

If you were trapped on an island, what 3 things would you bring with you?
Dental floss, soap, and protein bars.

What is the craziest thing youโ€™ve ever done?
Choosing the largest show within WBFF, WBFF Worlds, as my first show to compete in with that federation. There were over 20 countries being represented at Worlds. The risk paid off though, I won first place in my division as well as my pro card.

What tips do you have for a beginner at the gym?
Always start out with light weight so that you can learn how correct form of exercises look and feel. Do your research on how to live a healthy LIFESTYLE and not just how to follow a diet.
