Strengthen Your Body -
Start with Your Heart

Your goal is to get in shape – lose a few pounds and tone up. But building muscle on the outside doesn’t mean you’re building muscle on the inside. Working out to get in shape, could produce heart-health benefits like lower blood pressure and cholesterol as a byproduct. But why cross your fingers and take the chance?

Strengthen Your Heart and Your Body

When you focus on your most important muscle first, you maximize heart-related benefits while you build the body of your dreams. This small but powerful inside-out paradigm shift can have a huge impact on your life.

I didn't know...

A common reaction to finding out that coronary artery disease can take decades to form is…”I didn’t know.”

They Want You to Know

Your loved ones, family and friends want you to find out how to reduce your risk of heart disease.

How we help your heart

Make no mistake – heart disease kills millions of Americans each year. We need to see it as the enemy it is.

At iHeart Fitness we’ve spent years of trial and error and countless hours of research, in workshops, and courses learning how heart fitness helps reduce the risk of disease. We did the same for physical fitness too.

We’ve filtered through the endless amounts of information, and created what we believe to be the most relevant to help strengthen your most important muscle – your heart – while shaping your body the way you want it. 

Our four-phased approach teaches specifically about your risk for heart disease, and through our unique self-discovery process, we design a strategy to help reduce your risk and give you more time to do the things you love.

Lacey has always been heart-conscious due to the extensive heart health history in her mom’s family. But she was completely caught off guard when her dad had a heart attack at 49, and died of heart disease at 52. His untimely death was the driving force behind Lacey founding Fit by 50 Plus, designed to help people get heart and physically fit by 50 (plus). 

She founded iHeart Fitness after achieving overwhelming success working with people of all ages to increase heart health and physical fitness.

If I can help one family avoid the pain of losing a parent to an avoidable disease, and children growing up without a grandparent, I believe I’ve fulfilled my purpose.
