Dr. LeBolt did her undergraduate work in biology at The College of William and Mary, earned her Masters degree in Exercise Science from The George Washington University and was awarded her PhD in Physiology from the Medical College of Virginia. While on the Exercise Science faculty at George Washington University, she taught anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology and kinesiology and built a reputation as a popular speaker at corporate and educational health and fitness events.
Wendy moved from classroom teaching to training, speaking and writing when she founded Fit2Finish in 2005 to address the problem of injuries to youth athletes, with a particular focus on reducing the risk of ACL injuries in female soccer players. Her first book, Fit2Finish: Keeping Your Soccer Players in the Game, was released in 2015.
Foundational to her work is a deep reverence for the human body itself. Since we get only one body and it has to last us a lifetime, not only had we better treat it well, but surely it is meant to teach us something. She tackles this teaching in her latest book, Made to Move: Knowing and Loving God through Our Bodies (to be released in February by Upper Room Books), a Christian devotional workbook which takes seriously the command to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, love your neighbor as yourself.” (Luke 10:27)
Wendy splits her time between Williamsburg, Virginia and Sarasota, Florida where she reads, writes, plays and works(out), keeping company with husband Scot, while trying to keep track of three young women she is proud to call her daughters and two devoted dogs.
