Lyn Lindbergh is the founder and author of Couch to Active. She spent 20 years working in senior management roles at corporations as diverse as Microsoft, Boeing, AOL, T-Mobile, Praxair, Philips Healthcare, and AT&T Wireless. She has managed many multi-national, large-scale initiatives as well as smaller quick-turnaround initiatives. Lyn has a gift for coming into stressful environments and creating experiences that are supportive, impactful, and memorable for all.

Lyn holds a degree in Education. She is also a Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Pilates Instructor, and Certified Group Fitness Instructor, which includes just about every class you've ever attended at your local gym. She was on staff at PRO Sports Club, a world renowned fitness center based in the Seattle area that offers over 200 weekly group fitness classes. More importantly, Lyn lives with fibromyalgia and a couple of additional long-term health issues, so she knows at a very deep level that the struggle to exercise is real. 

She is also the host of The Health and Fitness Motivation podcast, a globally distributed show with over 400 episodes on tap.

Lyn's tagline-"No more exercise we hate!"-pushes back against the mentality that exercise must be painful, difficult drudge-work to be effective. Reluctant exercisers already know what research tells us-that we're more likely to stick with exercise we enjoy.
