LYNDA HOLT - DIRECTOR
No one knows how to overcome the challenges life throws at you more than Lynda Holt. Wheelchair bound since birth, Lynda has won silver medals in both shot put and discus at the Sydney 2000 Paralympics and understands how self-doubt, lack of confidence and fear can inhibit a person from reaching their full potential.
Having trained for 19 years to reach and medal at the Paralympics, Lynda understands how a persons mindset is just as important as their physical fitness. Having competed in front of 70,000 people Lynda had to rely on her mental training to keep her focus and block any negative thoughts when it counted.
After retiring from competitive sports, Lynda's ventured into the corporate world, first in recruitment and then in the medical emergency field. During this time Lynda also succeeded in becoming a Clinical Hypnotherapist & NLP Trainer and created the Live Well Centre in the heart of Crows Nest.
With her personal experience as an elite athlete and then further study in mental health, Lynda has now amalgamated her skills and experience and along with Christopher Hardy have created School of Infinite Learning where they bring these skills to Personal Trainers with personal development training that will enhance their own mindset and that of their clients.
CHRISTOPHER HARDY - DIRECTOR

He served in the US Navy during the Persian Gulf War on a hospital ship, working to provide essential medical and mental support to injured personnel on a daily basis. Upon completing his tour of duty, he began a new life in Los Angeles where he worked for the Police Department as an instructor for 9-1-1 operators. As a trainer, he provided measured, constructive, verbal and written direction to his trainees while empowering them with the confidence to provide life saving advice to callers.
Upon moving to Australia, Chris took on a life long dream to build a successful cafe with his partner. The success of the cafe was based on Chris’ culmination of understanding his customer’s needs, the market and the training of his employees. Also by building strong rapport with their customers and staff they made the cafe the “go to place” in the small community on the Central Coast.
After selling the cafe and moving back to the city, Chris met Lynda while working in the medical emergency assistance field. They both realised the need for personal development training withing the community, which would foster success for individuals who needed direction.
