Heather had always been a serious and very successful athlete but after college she found herself lost without the structure of a team training program and it caused this goal oriented young woman a lot of stress. After gaining weight and fighting through a difficult injury she realized she needed a big challenge to get her motivation back.
That realization led Heather to Max Muscle and soon she became a MaxForm-Life-Challenge-Top-10-Contestant by using her dedication and training skills in a focused and determined manner! Check out her great story below!

Ladies, our first Empower Your Estrogen Adventure, Rock Climbing in Moab, Utah with Front Range Climbing Co was beyond our wildest dreams; the scenery was beautiful, the adventures breathtaking, the Tough Tiara Competition hard fought for and the bonds of friendship made were that of true sisters. In fact, it far exceeded even our grandest of dreams so Vicki and decided we had to come up with an encore event this summer, the sooner the better so we are hereby inviting you to the Empower Your Estrogen What’s Next on Your List Next Adventure- Mountain Biking! Mark you calendars for July 18-20 because we are going mountain biking down Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, CO!
Yes, you read that right! This time we are channeling our inner estrogen for the most epic mountain bike ride you have ever imagined! We once again found the best guides in the country, Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours and owner Dylan Scott, and adventure sisters Vicki Vandergriend and Jackie Classen have put their imaginations together to plan another blow your mind kind of ladies only weekend adventure!
Says Jackie "Just imagine it! The wind feels like a breath of fresh air filling your lungs like balloons. The air feels good, suddenly your senses come to life and you notice the fragrances of the forest, pine fills the air and you breathe it in deeply. The view is suddenly spectacular and you realize you can see for miles, a just reward for all your hard work. We all work hard in our daily lives but this would be a chance to recharge your batteries filling all your senses with a feeling of peace, a just reminder that the world is a big wide open place to be cherished and explored. Can you picture it?
You will rediscover the pure joy of coasting and sit back in the saddle to enjoy the ride, the simple joy of your youth coming back to you in waves.
Visions of childhood hours spent on days such as this float through your mind and your inner dare devil resurfaces eager to be set free. You remember how wickedly fun coasting downhill faster and faster can be and you can’t resist the temptation to throw caution to the wind. Ah the joys of the freedom of youth come washing over you and you shed the responsibilities of adulthood like a cloak used only in winter. The lighter you feel, the faster you go, the happier you are"
What's on the Schedule for this Adventure?
This time we will meet in Colorado Springs on Friday, July 18th and gather for the now traditional meet and greet and set up camp together at the base of Pikes Peak! We will pitch our tents, get to know each other and share our stories by the campfire.
Saturday morning we will arrive at Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours main office bright and early, get fitted for our mountain bikes and helmets and enjoy a pre-ride breakfast. Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours is an awesome local Colorado Springs favorite and has been safely guiding tours down spectacular Pikes Peak for years! They will provide all the necessary gear including the heavy coats and hats we might need at the summit, bikes, helmets and all the necessary instruction we will need to have a safe and amazing day on the mountain.
Once our team of fearless women is geared up we will load into Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tour specially equipped vans and our entertaining and professional hunky guides will drive us to the top of beautiful Pikes Peak with our bikes and everything we will need for the day!
We will have a biking safety mini seminar at the summit and will have a chance to visit the Pikes Peak Gift Shop and take all the amazing summit pictures we want before launching our tour! Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours will provide a lead guide to set the pace and show us the way and the van will follow safely blocking us from road traffic and pleasantly hauling all our extra gear!
The Tour will take us down Pikes Peak Highway where we will enjoy nearly 20 miles of spectacular American spender and breathtaking views and enjoy the childhood joys of bike riding! Instead of taking in the vista from a car or the train, we will experience first hand the fresh mountain air and feel the wind in our pony tails as we coast and weave our way down one of Americas Most Scenic Highways!
Now before you panic and say to yourself “well that sounds like fun but there is no way I can mountain bike 20 miles” stop right there! This is another “once in a lifetime opportunity” to see and do something we are pretty sure you would never do on your own, get out of your comfort zone, live life with a little zest and make new life-long girlfriends! Besides that we promise you if you can ride a bike you CAN DO this! Why? Because we will be riding down a paved highway and 95% of the route is downhill! The majority of the route you get to coast and simply take in the view!
After a few hours of fresh mountain air and adventure we will have worked up an appetite and our guides will escort us to Jake and Tully’s for a hearty and tasty lunch on their patio overlooking Old Colorado City where we will have a toast to our amusingness and relive our glorious morning! This lunch is included in the tour cost!
After a refreshing lunch we will regroup and head to camp where we will embark on a group hike and enjoy Pikes Peak from yet a different vantage point! We have a couple secret adventures in mind and the famous Tough Tiara Competition promises to be epic, but you have to come on the trip to find out what it is! If time allows we will toss in a Jeep 4 Wheeling tour and end our exciting day back at the campfire to entertain each other with tales of our antics.
You will wonder at the star filled mountain sky and sleep well in the crisp fresh air and awake the next morning ready for yet another once in a lifetime mountain bike experience. Sunday we will gather back at Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours and this time embark on a self-guided tour down Gold Camp Road, a old dirt road originally used to haul supplies up to miners. We will enjoy riding through three different dirt tunnels and take in the scenery overlooking Colorado Springs on this adventure and stop along the way for a picnic lunch!
This trip is honestly suitable for all levels from beginner; novice, to experienced, and the scenery and sisterhood will make this a true memory maker for all time!
To help give you an idea of the physical requirements we devised a Tough Girl Scale, if the Moab adventure required a level 6-7 fitness this one would be rated at a 3-4!
Jackie and Vicki have once again figured out the where, when and how of it all and have created a once in a life time opportunity to enjoy a little physical activity, make new friends and experience the splendor of Pikes Peak in ways you could not previously imagine! They have negotiated a fantastic deal with the best mountain biking guides on the Front Range and this promises to be another “life changing ladies only adventure.”
If we have 15 or more sign up with Jackie and Vicki before June 1, we get the blow out individual price of $140 per person. Extra costs would include your travel costs to Colorado Springs and your camp food. Everyone just either packs their own food or hits the local grocery store so you can cater your meals to your own preferences. We try to keep costs for these adventures as minimal as possible and keep it simple!
If for some reason we have less than 15 adventurous ladies joining us for this trip the cost for the tours increases slightly to $160 per person, which is still an amazing deal!
What do you need to do to join in the fun?
- Tell your family you will be gone from July 18-20th (we suggest not even telling them where you are so they can’t hunt you down and find you but that is up to you)
- Figure out how you are getting to Colorado Springs-you can fly, drive, carpool, take the Greyhound Bus, or even hitch hike –we don’t care- just get here!
- Pack your bags! You’ll need basic camping gear like a tent, sleeping bag, small daypack for snacks and water, hiking shoes or sturdy tennis shoes and some food! Really it’s that easy! We’ll send out a suggested packing list closer to the date but you do not need any expensive gear for this adventure.
- Bring your “Can Do Attitude” and plan on having the time of your life!
- Don’t forget a camera or video camera to capture the moments!
- READY? Then call Jackie at 720-260-1660, comment to this blog or email her at email@example.com
So, this is it, yet another opportunity to do something so outrageous and insane that even you were impressed, raise a little hell, get out of your comfort zone, live a sinfully dangerous life and best of all reconnect with the sisterhood of girlfriends and enjoy the slumber party of all slumber parties! Trust me you do not want to miss this!
When you return home you will be fully charged and empowered to continue making the world better one day at a time knowing you did something you did not think was even possible!
Don’t over think this; don’t let life and all of its silly obligations keep you from this grand bucket list adventure. Take just a couple days off from your world and use it to recharge your own batteries. You will be amazed at how good it feels to give to yourself-just a little bit!
Think about just exactly how much fun this would be, a group of crazy ass, hard working, hold the entire world together kind of women out camping and coasting down Pikes Peak with our pony tails in the wind and a wild ass smile on our faces!
How can you pass this up? This is your chance to cross off that next adventure off your bucket list! This kind of a life changer only comes along once every millennium and you need to get off the fence and sign up!
Ready, do it! Sign up right here, right now and join the fun. We guarantee you won’t be sorry!
