Lynda Huey, M.S., founder of Huey’s Athletic Network, is a former athlete and coach whose own injuries led her into the water to find fitness and healing. She was educated at San Jose State University where she starred on the track and field team during its golden years. She earned a masters degree in kinesiology, coached volleyball, field hockey, and track and field at several universities before writing her autobiography and starting her own business. She pioneered the use of water training with Olympic and professional athletes in the 1980s and 1990s. Her clients have included Florence Griffith Joyner, Wilt Chamberlain, Luc Robataille, Carl Lewis, Emeka Okafor, Valery Brisco, Gail Devers, the UCLA Women’s Track Team and the Chicago White Sox (for Bo Jackson). Entertainers have sought her out, including Sinbad, Cybill Shepherd, Paula Abdul, Raquel Welch, James Garner, Elliot Gould, Courtney B. Vance, and Josh Duhamel. She has written six books on water exercise, including the best-selling aquatic fitness book of all time, The Complete Waterpower Workout Book with Robert Forster, PT. She wrote Heal Your Hips and Heal Your Knees with the former Chief of Orthopedics at Cedars-Sinai, Robert Klapper, MD. She shot 10 videos and wrote 12 textbook chapters for her most recent work, Lynda Huey’s Aquatic Rehab Online Course. (See LyndaHuey.com) This course offers Continuing Education units for physical therapists and Con-Ed credits for aquatic fitness professionals studying her methods in over 20 countries.
She has written for most of American’s top sports magazines, hosted a sports show on KCRW, and worked for NBC at the Seoul Olympic Games.
