Hi! My name is Lindy McDonald. Throughout my younger years, I was always playing sports. In high school I received varsity letters in three sports: Soccer, Basketball, and Softball. Softball was, and still is, my passion and love. After high school I attended Oregon State University (GO BEAVS!) where I worked hard and received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Science in 2012. Then went on to complete my certification with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) as a Certified Exercise Physiologist (EP-C). To add to my toolbox in June 2019 I received my certification with Stretch To Win Institute as a Certified Fascial Stretch Therapist. I continue to learn and add certifications, in October 2019 I completed my certification as a Functional Training Specialist through American Council of Exercise (ACE).
Once I graduated college I worked in the medical fitness industry, focusing on patients who had completed physical therapy, cardio or pulmonary rehab. Helping set them up for success in their maintenance phase of their lifestyle change. I had then moved on to work in cooperate fitness, I was located inside a large cooperation where I taught and brought wellness into the work space of about 500 employees. From there I moved back into the clinical side of fitness and was working under a chiropractor and physical therapist, again helping patients with the maintenance phase in conjunction with or after they had received treatment from the professionals above me. After doing that for a few years I grew a large following of clients that wanted to keep their maintenance going. Which leads me to where I am today, with my own business and enjoying working with a wide variety of clients who I get to help build strength, confidence, and healthier lifestyle.
Personal Hobby Activities
Just to name a few personal hobbies, I really enjoy fishing, hunting, kayaking, camping, hiking, and any combination of them. Some other hobbies I have picked up over the years is gardening, canning goods, and other homesteading activities. You can probably find me listening to music outside of work, usually have headphones in, radio on, or - my favorite - record player on while at home.
