Heidi Currier - Owner
Hi, My name is Heidi. I have been instructing fitness classes for 6 years. I am happily married to Charlie and together we have 4 children: Macey, Abbie, Isaac and Benjamin. Before becoming the owner of LiveWell in April of 2018, I first attended classes and then became an instructor. It was when my youngest child turned 2, I decided it was time to get my self back in shape. I was invited to a Zumba class and discovered a love of dancing! I began to take classes at LiveWell in September of 2012 and became an instructor in March of 2013. I became owner 5 years later. I now teach several classes, including Zumba, Strong by Zumba, Zumba Toning, TurboKick, PiYo, P90x, Power Hour and Step Power Hour and Barre. I LOVE being an instructor, I love fitness, I love the people who walk through the doors of LiveWell each day.
Ingrid Sutherland - Instructor
Ingrid is a Mapleton native, where she currently resides with her husband of over a decade, Taylor, and their two young children, Isaiah and Quinn. Ingrid is a creative. When she’s not wiping off sticky faces or stepping on legos, she comes alive through writing, reading, painting, drawing and decorating. She also takes every opportunity to get outside, enjoying all the sun and fresh air she can find. Ingrid dove into her own personal wholeness journey 6 years ago. She has actively been pursuing health and wellness of the body, mind and spirit ever since. Ingrid has faithfully engaged in many different forms of group exercise; from personal training to boot camp style classes to outdoor group adventure. She has discovered personally how moving your body regularly in a safe and positive community can transform your inner self. She has a passion to walk with and encourage others to uncover their deep potential and live life to the fullest! Ingrid is brand new to the LiveWell family but is excited and eager to learn, laugh and sweat like crazy with all who attend her classes!
Erica Lovely - Instructor
Erica has come alive passionately through group fitness. Although relatively new to the game, she is certified in Core De Force Live, PiYo Live, TurboKick Live and Cize Live. She is also certified with the Aerobics and Fitness Association. Being a part of LiveWell is one of the most positive and meaningful components of her life – aside from being a wife, a mom to two beautiful girls and a pup named Wren. Currently, Erica is a full time business education teacher and part business owner, and life sure can get crazy! But having friends in fitness and a safe place to grow, learn and to be yourself is so grounding and has proven to be so necessary for a happy life. Surely, this is the place for her! In her free time Erica enjoys all of the adventures and activity she can get with her family and friends- snowmobiling, skiing, camping, vacationing, hiking, water sports – you name it! It is her hopes that her love of life and fitness will spill into enthusiastic classes, as well as support her in a fun and active life.
