Who is Heidi Somers?

Heidi Somers is an American fitness influencer who is active on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and other social platforms. She was born on 14th March 1989 in North Pole, Alaska, United States. She is known for posting fitness-related videos on YouTube and pictures on her Instagram called Buffbunny.

Early life and background of Heidi Somers

Heidi grew up on the North Pole alongside her sister Mary and her parents. She was a popular kid who was all about movement and sports. At some time in her life, she realized that she wasn’t happy there because she had no exciting future ahead of her. She wanted to move to a bigger city which would provide her with better opportunities. She knew that her family wasn’t about to move, so she took things into her own hands.

It would be an understatement to say that Heidi worked hard. She worked four different jobs at the same time because it was the only way to earn enough money to move away. She managed to raise enough money in 2009 when she was 20 years old and moved to San Antonio, Texas. After settling in, she started to enjoy her life and try out different foods. When she got to Texas, she was quite skinny, so she didn’t worry about her body. But after some time, she noticed that she had gained more weight than she would like to.

Early career of Heidi Somers

Heidi wanted to be slim again, so she paid for a gym membership and worked out every other day. She believed in the misconception that lifting weights would make her look bulky and manly, so she stuck with cardio exercises. Luckily, she got noticed by a gym trainer who helped her understand how workouts actually worked. Happy about her progress, Heidi changed her diet to some healthy options, and soon after, she looked completely different. She felt stronger, prettier and also psychologically healthy.

Heidi joined Instagram in 2012, and when she was finally happy about her body, she started posting pictures there. Not only she gained many followers, but she also got noticed by a fitness magazine that asked her to pose for their article. This led her to sign a modelling contract and become a fitness model who was ready to compete. She attended a few NPS competitions, and even though she didn’t win, she got more confident.

YouTube channel of Heidi Somers

Heidi’s YouTube channel was created in 2008, but she didn’t post many videos back there. When she got popular on her Buffbunny Instagram, she started to focus on her YouTube career as well. Heidi is determined to help her followers as much as she can, which leads her to film as many workout videos as possible. She divided her workout plans into series, which are all focused on one body part or muscle group. Since beauty standards changed, her booty workouts became the most popular. The other popular part involves weight loss, especially in the waist area.

Since a workout isn’t the only answer to weight loss and a slim figure, Heidi made sure to involve a series about food. This series involves What I Eat In A Day videos, meal prep videos and monthly meal plans. Heidi often shows what she eats and what she keeps in her fridge. Heidi is proud of her body and likes to show it in swimwear. One section of her channel is devoted to bikini hauls and is very popular.
