About: Linda comes from a diverse background in movement, having dabbled in everything from Brazilian martial arts, sword dancing, and rock climbing. Finding joy through movement of all kinds is an integral part of Linda’s day to day life. She is a strong believer that movement can positively influence a person’s emotional, physical, and mental state. Discovering strength training, and the sense of personal confidence it can bring, led Linda to becoming a personal trainer.
As a trainer, she specializes in helping clients learn fundamental movement patterns and building core strength so that they can learn to not only move well, but find joy in movement. Linda likes to create challenging workouts with purposeful movements, and will work with you to create a plan you understand. The fitness world can be hard to navigate, but Linda loves working with beginners and teaching fundamentals. Her friends call her a ‘fitness nerd’ due to her passion to learn and understand movement mechanics while keeping up with latest science on exercise. The body is a powerful and amazing structure and we all deserve to move, live, and play pain-free.
You can usually find Linda teaching rock climbing, swimming, practicing handstands, or playing with her two cats.
