Heidi Cannon Love for Dirt Biking

Published

“Braaaap” is the ever used slang terminology that goes around the dirt bike community … Its The sound a good old motorbike makes dirt biking has been a massive passion in my life for years now, I started riding moto at 17. My Boyfriend at the time raced motocross and I had always thought it looked amazing to try so I asked him to teach me, he replied no! I, of course, dumped him, bought my own bike and have never looked back. I spend 6 weeks a year in California riding as much moto as I possibly can! I would have to say jumps are my favorite part of riding my bike, it’s an unreal feeling of being in the air on a 200 pound plus machine. I also love seeing younger females getting involved in the sport and seeing the limits of “A gurl “riding a dirt bike can really do lol! I dig a chick that can play in the dirt and clean up nice for a date.

Motocross is an off-road racing sport that is raced on a closed circuit track, there are multiple riders going around at a time and the first person to complete the required number of laps in the shortest period of time wins. Motocross tracks all vary in technicality and length. There are numerous obstacles including tabletop jumps and double jumps to clear on the track. If you have never actually watched a race I definitely recommend, especially in person if you can, you will appreciate how long and even how high some of the jumps send the riders.

Motocross riding is demanding on so many levels. Anyone who participates in the sport of motocross riding already knows, first hand, the physical and mental drain on the body. The sport is definitely a full body workout, meaning lean body mass, core strength, along with a strong positive frame of mind are all major necessities. You require the strength and stamina to maneuver a 200+ pound piece of machinery with precision around the track using every muscle from head to toe including ones you didn’t even know existed.





Before the mid 90’s motocross was a completely different scene, the pro level riders would definitely indulge in the party scene on there off days. As motocross progressed top level riders elevated the sport by incorporating fitness programs into their routines. Today most, if not all top racers have a full-fledged fitness program involving top trainers and meal plans to keep on them on the straight and narrow. This has now made the sport much more technical and challenging to be a full-time racer but also has dramatically improved the bike skills and speeds we see today.

Ken Roczen, Chad Reed, and Justin Brayton are just a few of the big names in the sport of Supercross (indoor motocross). The series runs a total of 16 races across the country from the beginning of January to mid may. Every Saturday night 40 top riders battle it out for 16 races to try and get the coveted title of the supercross champion. Each race stadium is typically packed with over 40 thousand fans that come to watch the excitement.

To me watching a pro on the track flying by at 40 MPH and 20+ feet in the air is like watching Arnold Schwarzenegger lift big in the gym. It’s incredibly impressive!

So thanks to my old ex-boyfriend for introducing me to the greatest action ports of all time.

You’re one of the biggest fit Inspirations for mothers on social media. How did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?
I have always been into health & fitness, but it wasn’t until I after the birth of my twins that I went all out hardcore in my training. I was on bed rest for 5 months of my pregnancy & it ignited a fire & drive inside me unlike ever before.

I had been paddle boarding all the time and saw the physical benefits. I took it a step further and got certified to teach, I started racing.

Then I got hooked on the Barre’ method I trained to be an instructor, taught classes locally for 3 yrs & now teach privately in my home to a select few. I absolutely love helping others feel better about themselves, providing them with encouraging attainable ways to improve their lifestyle & achieve goals.

What is the most challenging thing about being a fitness model and a mother?
The most challenging part is being disciplined mentally on staying positive that all will be okay someday. Traveling and being a single mother, it’s a constant balancing act.

What are your top 3 favorite exercises?
Stand up paddle boarding at a fast pace for about 45 min. Barre Methodology with weights. And, I have always loved a quick run around my neighborhood for a good cardio, fat burning & mental meditation stress relief.

Do you listen to music while you train? And what’s are your favorite types of music you like working out to?
Listening to music when I train is an absolute must for me. Tunes with a good beat, I’m a lover of good ol’ Trap, hip hip with of course some pop sprinkled in.

Do you ever encounter stereotypes from the way you look?
I encounter stereotypes every time I step outside my home for the way I look. Especially being a mother of 4. Honestly, I still struggle with how people can be so cruel with judging one on appearances without getting to know them first. It’s about mastering the art of not caring what others think, but let’s keep it real. that’s not always easy. I am comfortable & confident in my own skin, proud of who I am as a woman, mother, daughter & friend.

What was your favorite photo shoot location?
Oooh, that’s a tough one, as I have a few, but his past July though I was in Vegas for a week shooting bikinis & fitness lifestyle. This shoot, in particular, I found myself surrounded by genuinely kind, creative people who worked their tooshes off and never complained once that the heat index was over 115 degrees. It was an incredibly positive experience. Other than that Australia 🙂

Jala Sue

What is your current training style, routine or split?
I do Barre method for around 45 minutes 2-3 days a week. On those off on days, I will either go for a 40-minute paddle or fast run for 3 miles. When I watch movies at night, I do crushes & planks.

What are your favorite clean foods?
I love daily healthy smoothies, I am a big Juicer as well for keeping my immune system strong. Meal wise, I’m a fan of steak & chicken, salads. I love fresh veggies.

Jala Sue

Splurge foods?
Chips, I’m a chipaholic! also, sour patch kids 🙂

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Skydiving this past winter & I can’t wait to do it again & again.

What tips do you have for a beginner at the gym?
The hardest part is finding a workout routine/class you love to do. Then I suggest, making small weekly goals. Don’t let fear paralyze you, let it motivate you. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment. Set alarms in your phone to remind yourself to workout. Are mornings, afternoons or evenings better for your schedule? Start with 3 days a week, committing to 1hr each time. once you get in the habit of this, I guarantee you will feel so good you will want to add more.

Lastly, find a workout buddy. It’s much more fun to have someone that can hold you accountable & in turn you hold them accountable. It’s a win-win for both people. plus, some of best friends have come from being my workout partners.
