Lindsay Dill

Lindsay Dill
Lindsay grew up very active, participating in team sports such as
softball, volleyball, basketball and gymnastics. Despite her natural
athletic ability, she struggled with her weight through her teen years
and early 20’s. After the passing of her father in 2009, she decided it
was finally time to take charge of her life and make a change. She
dabbled in general conditioning and mainstream fitness for a few years
until discovering CrossFit in 2013. Lindsay eventually transitioned into
a full time competitive Olympic Weightlifter after learning that was
where her true passion lies. Once she finally got a grasp on nutrition,
she has shed nearly 100 pounds, and trains competitively under Coach Bob
Takano. Lindsay loves sharing her knowledge of lifting with everyone
around her. Aside from her passion for heavy lifting, she has
substantial knowledge in mobility and natural movement through
correcting some of her own injuries. She enjoys training others and
helping them discover things about their bodies that they never thought
possible. She believes that having a strong body means nothing if it
isn’t paired with a strong mind and heart.

Luci Eisen

Lucy Eisen
Luci is a former couch potato/crazy ice cream eater who discovered her
love for weightlifting in 2011. After one very inspiring and also, very
humbling year of weight training, gymnastics and the most intense cardio
she had ever done in her life, she realized she needed to turn around
and inspire others to follow the same path. At that point, fitness
completely changed her life. She started coaching Crossfit and
Weightlifting in 2012 and completely devoted herself to the success of
others through fitness. She is a Crossfit Level 2 Trainer, and also
holds her Crossfit Weightlifting and USA Weightlifting certifications.
Luci truly values being a coach and motivating others to move better and
be better everyday. She is no longer that couch potato she once was, and
she now finds herself preferring ice cream when it’s between two
cookies.

Matthew has been coaching and personal training in Los Angeles since
2014. He got his start at several local CrossFit affiliates and
transitioned into corporate wellness and personal training. He respects
and believes in the programming at Lift Society. “I really enjoy the
physical discipline of lifting. Being proficient in the the major lifts
is something that takes a lot of time and years of practice. I still
learn something new every time I lift and it keeps me coming back.”
