About this pro

The quintessential element that I believe sets me a part from my peers is my holistic approach to fitness - we are all part of intertwining systems and their interactions have a distinct impact on us; physically, emotionally, etc. It's through this same lens that I look at my client's bodies, what factors are affecting them and their ability to achieve their fitness objectives, be it an injury, work, nutrition, fears, etc, and we work to overcome them.

My fitness background also shapes my services and interactions with my clients. As an avid runner, I use my passion and knowledge of running as the intervention driving my approach to personal training. Since every sport involves some degree of running or call upon similar muscle groups, my training approach incorporates fundamental running mechanics that are transferable across many athletic disciplines.  While running related drills and activities are reflective of my training style, all programs are tailed to fit each client's specific fitness profile.

Full mastery of endurance, power, speed and agility, comes from the ability to fully understand one's body biomechanics, how you move across various planes of motion.  It is my goal to empower you to unlock your body's full potential to create a more fun, fit and functional YOU!  

I accomplish this through in-person or online training.

Motivating and empowering my clients, especially my fitness novices, to attain what they once perceived as unattainable.

    My daughter loves her and she knows how to motivate! Great knowledge of anatomy and a comprehensive understanding of what my daughter needs to drive speed and explosiveness.

  • Barbara

    Sue is the most knowledgeable trainer I have ever had. I think she has a profound understanding of how the body works and creates and adjusts a program to meet an individual’s needs. If there is a problem, an ache or pain she knows how to fix it. She never ceases to amaze and inspire me and I hope to continue working with her for a long time

How did you get started teaching?

Fitness has been a part of my life since I fell in love with running (Tack & Field) my sophomore year in high and as a Division I 400M sprinter at the University of Oregon.

After spending many years in the social service industry, I returned to fitness, 2014, to create a healthy balance in my own life and completely fell in love, again, with health and wellness. 


What types of students have you worked with?

- Beginner to Advanced runners

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for the trainer who caters to your "needs" not "wants". It very easy to create programs that our clients want and exercises that keeps them happy but it's more challenging and rewarding to program for their needs - stability and flexibility over strength.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1. Are they truly ready/committed to prioritize their personal health & wellness?

2. What will be the the holistic; social, emotional, financial, etc, impact of deferred self care?
