Functional Training for Sports and life
Lily's journey to becoming an expert in functional movement began in her earliest years as an enthusiastic multi-sport athlete ultimately finding her true calling in equestrian sports. She went on to compete successfully in the sport of show jumping through her postgraduate studies while working as a personal trainer and assistant equestrian coach. She added Pilates to her own training routine and quickly realized the benefits with her riding. This inspired her to move to Chicago to study with experts in the field and teach at two top studios.
Personal Discovery of the Brain Body Connection
One day while cycling along an Illinois back road, Lily was hit by a truck. The accident left her with a broken spine and positive test for paralysis. Determined to ride horses again, she programmed her rehabilitation with the same mental focus and physical discipline that she had used to get ready for competitions but with a deepened focus on neuromuscular connections and pathways. During those long months of rehab, Lily became cognizant of a gap in the rehabilitation process so she developed a second phase model that teams up clinical and fitness sectors for a client-centric approach that delivers unparalleled supportive care. It allowed Lily to return to competition as a two-time regional jump champion.
Application of Neuromuscular Training
Her deepened interest in rehabilitative movement led her to pursue advanced education and mentorship from top physiotherapists with heavier emphasis on neuro based movement and developmental kinesiology. She went on to found an equestrian sports cross-training practice and most recently led the development and implementation of a movement-science program actualizing the second phase model for a multi-location fitness club in California.
Lily holds an MS in Kinesiology with a Sport Psychology emphasis from California State University at Fullerton, studying under the renowned Dr. Ken Ravizza. She is a Body Arts and Science International master Pilates teacher, Balanced Body Passing the Torch graduate, a certified Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) Exercise Trainer from the Prague School of Rehabilitation, Z-Health Movement Specialist and contributing columnist for Equestrian sports journals.
Leading Others to Discover optimal Movement
Lily continues to be inspired by the profoundly transformative power of movement. She is dedicated to continued learning and staying at the forefront of the field so she can make the most positive impact leading people to (re)discover the life changing benefits of optimized movement.
