Heidi is a retired Police Officer and the co-owner at The Playground – Broward CrossFit in Davie Plantation FL. “I started CrossFit in 2007 at a Globo gym and within 9 months opened a box with my husband. As the years pass, I find that coaching is where my heart belongs. The enjoyment I feel in watching people transform whether it be a beginner or seasoned athlete is priceless. I am grateful that I found another career that I truly love!!”
