November Female - Debbie Heidrich

Name: Debbie Heidrich

Where did you grow up? I grew up in Northeast Ohio in the village of Hartville. (The Hartville Hardware is famous...check it out sometime.)

When did you become a member of the Cornerstone community? I joined in April of 2016 at the recommendation of my nephew and his wife, Aaron & Wen Butcher (who, sadly, moved to Texas last year).

What do you do when you are not at Cornerstone? (occupation, hobbies, etc.)  I am a (mostly) retired nurse, specializing in hospice & palliative care. I continue to teach some continuing education for nurses and coordinate the education for our local chapter of Hospice & Palliative Nurses Association. I volunteer at Companions on a Journey Grief Support, Reach Out Lakota, and my church. I enjoy visiting the zoo, hiking, playing in my church bell choir, and traveling.

What is your favorite workout movement? Can’t say I have a favorite...I always feel challenged, which is a good thing.

What is your least favorite movement your trainer makes you do?  Burpees and running, mostly because I’m really slow at both.

What is your favorite accomplishment since becoming a part of Cornerstone? Any PR or better time on a workout is my favorite of the day.

What is something about yourself that we might not know? A book a co-edited got an American Nursing Association Book of the Year Award.

What advice would you give to someone just getting started in personal training at Cornerstone? Compare yourself only to yourself.

What goals do you have for the rest of 2018?. I’ve been working on pushups and chin ups...Just maybe I can get > 5 real pushups in a row before the end of the year. Chin ups are a work in progress let’s set that one for 2019...And, also for 2019,I hope I can get a few double unders.
