Podcast Episode 160: Meet Holly Rilinger, Who’s Leading The Merger of HIIT and Meditation In Her Newest Book and Ongoing World Tour of Classes

Holly Rilinger.3

I wish I could tell you when Holly Rilinger appeared on my radar.  

It was post her becoming a Fly Wheel superstar and Master Trainer, but before she managed to land on Bravo, as one of the foremost trainers in the country.  

While her teaching is extraordinary, it’s her Spirit that drew me in… and yes, I say Spirit with a capital “S” here, cause this woman is one of a kind.  

As a 5’4” college basketball player {who happened to live just miles from where I sit now}, she defied what most people would call “the odds” to play professional basketball.  

Her determination, grit, and tenacity is at the forefront of every single move of her career, from the real estate job that inspired her back into the gym, to building a brand that encompasses her book, Lifted: 28 Days to Focus Your Mind, Strengthen Your Body, and Elevate Your Spirit, specialized HIIT and meditation classes inspired by the book, and of course, her day-to-day clientele.  

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How Holly’s disadvantages or hardships made her journey and experience
    even better
  • You can gain perspective by stepping away!
  • The way her workouts transformed into something more meaningful to her
    and her clients
  • Holly’s strategy to incorporating meditation into her sessions
  • How she used her authenticity to grow herself and her practice
  • Why the impact goes so far beyond fitness and what Holly’s vision is for
    the future!

With grit + gratitude,
