Author Biography

Lynda Huey, MS, starred as a sprinter at San Jose State University, earned both a bachelor's and master's degree, coached track and field and volleyball at several universities, and wrote her autobiography, A RUNNING START: An Athlete, A Woman for the New York Times Book Company before she was thirty. Her second book, THE WATERPOWER WORKOUT resulted from her pioneering work in developing water exercises for fitness and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. She has published six books in the field of aquatic exercise and rehab, which are considered to be the foundation of aquatic therapy worldwide. She is a renowned international lecturer and has developed Lynda Huey's Aquatic Rehab Online Course to share her advanced techniques with over 125 students in more than 20 countries around the world. Through her fitness business, she sees many of the Hollywood elite in their home pools, and through her physical therapy business, she and her staff of physical therapists treat over 400 patients each week. She designs therapy pools and aquatic therapy protocols for major hospitals and health-care providers.
