After extensive shoulder surgery, I completed physical therapy. I needed to get my strength back and lose the post-surgery weight I gained. I decided to train with Susan, who I knew from Cycling class. I needed her for motivation to be at the Center at 5:30am prior to work. Susan took time to evaluate my condition and flexibility, and put together a comprehensive core and weight program to get me back on track. Her high energy levels and enthusiasm are unparalleled. Her knowledge of physiology and muscle mechanics is impressive. We concentrated on core exercises, followed by two-minute cardio bursts after each set. I have been working out most of my life, and thought I knew everything. Yet, I’ve learned much more from Susan. The cardio bursts were exactly what I needed. Several sessions later, I felt more energized and lighter. The variety of different exercises helped me grow stronger. I was able to begin using my shoulder for more intense exercises. I truly appreciate Susan for her knowledge and motivation.
