Sue, a former competitive cyclist and ongoing competitive runner, takes group fitness classes to supplement her training. After turning her attention to raising her five children, she had less time to train and needed to find more efficient workouts. She decided to become a Les Mills BodyPump and CXWORX instructor, both to share her love of fitness with other moms and to show them that it is possible to make time to stay fit. From there, she became an NSCA Certified Personal Trainer, which allowed her to reach more people on a personal level. She then discovered Kettlebell workouts, which inspired her to reach her most challenging goal — becoming a StrongFirst Kettlebell instructor. Sue’s children are part of her active lifestyle; they bike and roller blade with her as she runs the Burke Gilman trail, help her practice new BodyPump routines, and attend her BodyPump, Tabata and Bootcamp classes.
Sue’s classes are tough, yet filled with laughter and high-fives. Her focus on technique when moving quickly or lifting weights keeps her classes safe while getting results. She believes fitness is a lifelong journey, and her teaching style lends itself to inclusiveness at all levels.
