Personal History: 

Heidy Tejeda embraced her journey to health and wellness as a child living in her native homeland of Santo Domingo. Heidy discovered how exhilarating, cathartic, and liberating fitness and strength can be.

In 2002, Heidy created Fitness Max in New York. 2 years later when Heidy’s talent landed her a position as a Master Class Trainer with the nationally recognized New York Sports Club (NYSC) in Scarsdale, New York.

With THE UNLEASHED BODY, women everywhere can finally '"Train With Heidy."

Seeking to relieve muscle tightness often suffered by runners, Heidy was drawn to Yoga and Pilates. She loved how the practice of each required a synthesis of the mind, body, and spirit, and wanted to share this. She began her study of Yoga and Pilates at renowned institutions such as Stott Pilates; Jivamutki Yoga school. She provided Yoga instruction at the NYSC and the well-known Scarsdale Yoga Studio in Scarsdale, New York. Heidy continues to advance her mastery of the practice of Yoga as a student at the Jivamutki Yoga School under the esteemed instruction of Shannon Gannon and David Life, and mentorship of the illustrious Lady Ruth.

In 2011, Heidy proudly opened the doors to her own studio, Pilates Unleashed, located in Tuckahoe, New York. She provides instruction to a diverse clientele, including those with special needs. Heidy’s focus is to help her clients achieve their best self physically, mentally, and spiritually through the practice of Pilates and Yoga. During a recent interview, Heidy said, "I love being able to pass on this teaching to someone in a way that forever makes a difference in their life." Her fiercely loyal and ever-growing client base is evidence that she is achieving her mission.

Fitness Philosophy: With "The Unleashed Body", we use gentle, nurturing guidance to achieve the user's personal best, avoidingthe 'grind' and hard-edged teaching techniques so common in the field. The results are every bit effective, making the programs ENJOYABLE and the results noticeable FAST.

Heidy is forever grateful to her parents, family, clients, lovely teacher Lady Ruth, Betsy Kase, Tara Gregorio, Shannon Gannon, and David Life. Their kindness and generosity have made all possible. Heidy resides in New York with her 10 year-old son Andrew.
