WEIGHTLIFTING COACH/PERSONAL TRAINER
Jillian graduated from the University of Delaware with a B.S. in Athletic Training in 2012. As a standout collegiate track and field athlete at the UD, she knows what it takes to get to the top of an athlete’s game, winning two conference championships and breaking a 30 year old record in the javelin throw during her career.
From there, she spent a year in graduate school at the University of Georgia before finishing up her Master’s degree in Athletic Training at East Stroudsburg University. During this time, she worked at the high school level, gaining experience not only as an athletic trainer, but with performance enhancement, injury prevention, and injury rehabilitation.
Jillian has spent the past 5 years as an athletic trainer at Arcadia University, helping collegiate student athletes return from injury stronger, faster, and more powerful than ever, while also implementing preventative and corrective exercise programs for her teams. She has learned that optimizing movement and correcting the cause of dysfunction, rather than just treating a single-joint injury, results in better outcomes in the long term.
Jillian also holds the USA Weightlifting Sport Performance Certification. Jillian continues to work to be a high level athlete even though her track and field days are long gone. She found Crossfit, and ultimately Olympic weightlifting after graduation, and believes her greatest successes are yet to come.
She has consistently placed in the top 7 at national-level USA Weightlifting competitions since 2016, placing as high as 4th at National Championships in 2017. Most recently, she earned a spot on her first international team for the IWF Las Vegas International Open in March 2019.
As an overall athlete, she secured a highly coveted top 20 spot in the Mid-Atlantic Region to qualify for the Crossfit Games Atlantic Regional in 2017. Through it all, Jillian’s main goal is to inspire others to live happy, healthy lives.
Kevin has been a motivated, energetic athlete through his entire life. He grew up playing lacrosse, soccer, and wrestling in high school before committing to play lacrosse at Arcadia University. During this time, he fell in love with lifting weights. He read as much as he could about what types of workouts to do to supplement his sport and make him the best athlete possible. Upon graduation, he shifted his goals from supporting his lacrosse career to more strength and health-based goals. The significant other of Coach Jill, he also spends a lot of time watching the Olympic lifts and has learned a ton about the intricacies of these complex movements.
