Name: Taylor Lamb

Age:    22   

Sport:  Soccer

Level:  Professional   

When Taylor Lamb’s CIS soccer career came to an end, she knew she was not done yet.

“Transitioning from playing post-secondary to the next stage has been difficult” she says, “but I knew that I wanted to continue playing soccer at a high level.”

Now a professional soccer player in Europe, Taylor says she was able to move in the right direction and create playing opportunities for herself by focusing on improving as a player and an athlete.

One way she did that was by training with coaches at the Athlete Factory.

“I will never look at fitness and training the same way. I have been pushed harder than ever before” Taylor says of her training at the Athlete Factory.

In contrast to training she experienced in the past, Taylor says she appreciates the emphasis on education her Athlete Factory coaches offer her. “Each coach ensures you know exactly how a movement works and why you’re doing it.”

Taylor has also been pushed to new limits thanks to a diverse group of training companions. “Training with boys, girls, men, and women from so many different sports helps push you in every training session.”

Now, on her professional team in Italy, Taylor is putting her skills to work.

“I would like to become a top scorer on my team, and in our league” she says. Considering her most memorable sporting moment thus far is scoring the game-winning goal in her CIS debut, there’s little doubt Taylor will make a big impact.

Taylor is a big believer in goal-setting, and her advice to other athletes rings true in her own approach to sport.

“Set a goal for yourself and keep it in the back of your mind. Every time you step on the field, court, or into the gym, make sure you are thinking about what you need to do in that exact moment to make sure you can achieve your goal in the future.”

You can expect to see Taylor hard at work back in the gym after her professional season wraps up this summer.

“I am eager to get back into the Factory when I return, to continue to improve my speed and strength” she says. “I can’t wait to see what other opportunities I can open up for myself.”

Did you know that as part of our Initial Assessment with all our new athletes you receive an Injury Prevention Screen at our Sports Therapy Clinic.

The injury prevention screen is a general full body assessment focusing on the muscular, skeletal and neurological systems. It is designed to identify any existing or underlying conditions that may be precursors to injury and impair performance. 

Each area of the body is assessed for range of motion, joint stability, strength and muscle imbalance with the purpose of identifying any impairment that may eventually lead to dysfunction and injury. Early detection and correction of any impairment is ideal compared to diagnosing the cause of an injury and injury rehabilitation.

Our Sports Therapists work closely with our Strength & Conditioning Coaches to address any issues identified. Contact us to book your screen - don't wait until an injury occurs!

Sports Science


Did you know that many of our coaches either have or are currently working on their doctorates and masters degrees. We are at the center of some of sports science's leading edge research in the areas of acceleration, change of direction and injury prevention. We apply that ever increasing knowledge and expertise to the work we do with our athletes. 

Research shows that in-season plyometrics help youth soccer players improve sprint times and repeated change of direction. 

Talk to us about our in-season programs and year round training!
