Owner & Coach
Coach Heather and Owner of Kaia Fit Santa Clarita has an obsession for fitness. Yes, an obsession. She is happiest when she is moving, sweating, breathing, and living! She’s even happier when all her friends and family join her. There is no better high than driving yourself through a hard workout, hard race event, or impossible challenge and coming out the other side knowing you accomplished that impossible feat, you made it happen. I love sharing this mindset with all the girls at Kaia. I love to instill belief and confidence in others. My main purpose in owning Kaia is to grow a tribe of women with no limits, no fears, no doubts that they can take on anything in this life and then lead other women to believe they have the capability of doing anything they can dream of. My favorite exercise is HANDSTANDS! I have always been in awe of gymnasts and the strength and control they have over their bodies. When I’m in a handstand, I feel strong. I feel like an athlete, but I also feel young again! I love handstand contests. It’s my favorite thing to do at the beach with all the kids and parents too! Burpees are a very close second. I feel like a force to be reckoned with when I do Burpees. Heather is married to her Fire Fighter husband, Cary Flebbe, who has fought and overcome cancer. She has two children who inspire her to be stronger every day. Cade Gunnar who is 21 and Taylor Kristine who is 14. Heather has raced and finished The World’s Toughest Race in Fiji with her Team SuperFighters. She has her Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology, is a Professor at CSULA, and is a Master Educator for Stages Indoor Cycling, along with owning Kaia Fit Santa Clarita! She has been inspiring and educating health and fitness professionals for over 27 years! Heather’s favorite quote she coined is "Beast Mode transfers to all parts of your life." She loves to watch her clients transform into confident, powerful, unstoppable, adventurous, inspired individuals that feel like they can do anything and be anything!
