How She Got Here
When Lynda was a kid, she struggled with crippling social anxiety. This prevented her from playing team sports, which her parents pushed her to do, and caused her to stay inside most of the time. Lynda was depressed, exhausted all the time, and her health was failing in her teenage years. Her doctors urged her to get more exercise, if she didn’t she would be susceptible to obesity and early-onset heart disease.
Finding a Solution
Lynda decided that she needed to change her life in a big way. Since she didn’t want to play team sports, she worked with her parents to set up a weight lifting area in their basement. She struggled at first, she didn’t want to work out at all. But, after developing a routine and relying on the positive support from her parents, Lynda soon got completely hooked on fitness…
Catching the Bug
When Lynda outgrew her teens, she started seriously focusing on fitness. In her 20s, she would strictly watch workout videos and try to replicate them. This was her only hobby for a long time, and while she was doing this she was researching anatomy and nutrition, trying to figure out what would benefit her most to make her workouts better.
