Lindsey is a familiar face to our members from her work on the fitness floor and with the FitScripts program. We’re pleased to welcome her to her new role as a personal trainer! A few words from Lindsey:
I studied athletic training, a type of sports medicine degree that encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions. This required a huge commitment, hard work, and over 1000 clinical hours while in George Mason’s program. I think it’s important for people to know this so they can understand where I’m coming from. My background certainly plays into my personal training style and my work in the FitScripts program.
I believe the human body speaks its own language and I am passionate about helping you best understand yourself. I loved studying sports medicine and it brings me joy to share that knowledge with others, as I help clients improve their health and fitness.
My specialty as a trainer would have to be orthopedic conditions, although I’m comfortable with any medical condition or challenge a client may face. I love working with clients on push-ups, squats, and lunges. These exercises are dynamic and help us to accomplish a lot, while allowing me to learn about the client. Their form tells me about their fitness and helps me to identify areas for improvement.
I decided to become a trainer because of the personal connection it allows me to make. It’s fun to get to know an individual and then work with them towards their specific goals. I studied athletic training because I’m very passionate about the musculoskeletal system and I just had to learn about it. I’ve applied my studies in my own life, and in helping others.
My family is my world and I’m with them when I am not at work. I’m all about my 2-year-old son and husband. I love the beach, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and enjoy playing tennis for fun.
Our best wishes to Lindsey as she begins supporting members’ personal training needs!
