About LB

Hi, my name is Lindsay Bond. I have been a Certified Fitness Trainer through the International Sports Science Association for 8 years. I am also a CrossFit Certified Level 1 Coach, a Group Fitness Instructor, a USA Track & Field Level 1 Coach, former Lululemon Ambassador and, a lifetime athlete and lover of Sport and raging fun!

I got an early start on my 'fitness' journey and have been involved in athletics since the age of three. My mother put me in ballet and tumbling classes for starters, but my tremendous amount of energy and strength allowed for an easy transition into gymnastics. I was actually 'kicked-out' of ballet class when I was 4, because I thought that cartwheels were more interesting than first and fifth position.

I loved gymnastics! Everything about it was dangerous and new. I learned the application of body awareness in time and space before I learned long division. I completed levels 1-10, but before declaring elite status, I had a minor injury that gave me time off to try other sports. As it turned out I liked to run too, and I was fast! I made the decision to pursue my interests in other sports, like volleyball track and field. During my sophomore year of high school, I fell in love with running hurdles. And, there was no turning back.

I was made team captain and helped lead my high school team through three consecutive seasons, achieving All-County, All-Region, All-State Honors, and All-American recognition. I also received MVP awards sophomore through senior year in high school, and was undefeated in both the 100M Hurdles and 300M Hurdles from 1999-2001 in the state of Michigan. I ended my senior year with a full athletic scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. And, I still currently hold the 100m hurdle and 300m hurdle record for her high school.

While at the UNC under Head Coach Dennis Craddock, I earned All-ACC hurdler titles my freshman and senior years in the 400M Hurdles. I was a member of the ACC Championship Teams 2002-2004, and also a Triple Crown Championship Team Member in 2003 (which has only happened twice in the history of the University).

After college I moved to Atlanta to run professionally under the guidance of Georgia Tech Coach Nat Page. I competed professionally for two years, with a personal best of 13.69 in the 100m hurdles and 56.42 in the 400m hurdles. However, an injury forced me to hang up my spikes.

Now I specialize in building Bodies Of Natural Distinction, not only rehabilitating myself from my years of sports injuries and racing. I enjoy helping other people change their lives through nutrition guidance and personal training, using various methods including, but not limited to; High intensity interval training (HIIT), weight lifting, plyometrics, running, and general strength and conditioning concepts.
