Ms. Heidi Powell

(Personal Trainer)

About Me

Heidi Powell is the ultimate female force. She is a trainer, transformation specialist, devoted wife, mother of four, savvy businesswoman, author, nutrition nut, and overall health guru. Heidi became a fixture in America’s living room as she worked side-by-side with husband Chris Powell on ABC’s hit show, “Extreme Weight Loss.” Heidi empowered thousands across the globe as the matriarch and tour de force for the often-struggling participants, serving as their daily fitness coach, voice of reason and biggest cheerleader. The Powells continue to touch lives weekly as EWL airs in syndication on TLC and OWN networks worldwide. Along with writing a successful blog, Heidi shares her insight and expertise on health and wellness trends, fitness regimens, healthy recipes, family-friendly workouts, marriage and parenting advice, navigating life with a blended family, and her secrets to balancing it all. Over the past few years, her brand has grown extensively since she put herself on the other side of transformation and documented her own experience training and transforming her body as an NPC bikini competitor in the bodybuilding world. After much hard work, Heidi proudly became an IFBB Bikini Pro in July, 2017. The couple was awarded the prestigious Jack LaLanne Award at the 2018 IDEA Convention in San Diego. This annual award honors those who have made a significant and lasting contribution in fitness, nutrition and wellness, inspiring the world through work in the media or public eye. Heidi coauthored Chris’ second book, “Choose More Lose More, for Life,” which immediately soared to the top of the New York Times Best Seller list. Additionally, The Powells released their latest book in December 2015, entitled “Extreme Transformation: Lifelong Weight Loss in 21 Days,” which provides a comprehensive blueprint for changing your body—and life—in just 21 days. While simultaneously filming and coaching private clients and participants from “Extreme Weight Loss,” Heidi and Chris travel the country for speaking engagements and appear regularly on national television shows such as “Good Morning America” and “The Dr. Oz Show.” Heidi has graced the cover of several publications to date, including “Oxygen Magazine” and “Muscle & Performance” in 2016. She contributes regularly to “Redbook Magazine” and is part of the “Women’s Health Magazine” Advisory Board, where she offers expert advice on a regular basis. With more than a decade of experience as a personal trainer, Heidi holds both ACE and Crossfit certifications. As a coach, mother, and manager of their family business, Heidi brings a whole new perspective and level of compassion to the Powell’s approach, helping others overcome many of life’s challenges to create effective, long-lasting success. When not travelling, she resides in Arizona with Chris and their four children.
