Sue is a wonderful personal trainer. She is encouraging and motivating but still understanding of each individuals energy and fitness level. I would and have recommended her to family and friends. I’d love to take her classes but live too far away to do so. Maybe the next North County boot camp!

Sue was an absolute dynamo to train with. She always challenged me and helped me push beyond what I though was my limit. She taught me the importance of core strength , which as a long time runner, I had always neglected. I trained with Sue to get in shape for my wedding and it worked. I gained a lot of muscle in my arms, toned everywhere overall, and shaved 35 minutes off my marathon time – I’m certain due to the core strength she convinced me mattered enough to build. She was always fun, had a wonderful sense of humor, constantly changed workout routines to keep them interesting and challenging, and she stuck with me even when I was frustrated with myself for not progressing “fast enough.” I would recommend Sue as a personal trainer to anyone who wants to get healthy or healthier.

Nancy’s Success Story

Dear Sue, Thank you so much for your excellent instruction in your Gentle Yoga Class. I just wanted you to know how much it has helped me. I had a knee, groin and lower back injury that just was not getting any better after over a year of other alternative modalities. It took the joy and action out of my life. I just wanted to cry with the constant pain. I could not sleep because of the pain and discomfort. All I wanted to do when I got home from work was lay on my bed. It dragged on so long I thought: “Is this it? Is this how it’s going to be for the rest of my life?” This was unusual for me as I am an active person. I like to jog, hike, bike, explore and have adventure in my life. I feel I am a very young 60 year old person. But at that time with all the pain I felt like a very old and broken 90 year old. When I first started your class I could not even do the simplest balancing positions. Now I am pain free and look forward to your class and the great way I feel doing the positions. I do not want to miss a single class, for the joy of feeling fantastic is something I will never take for granted again. I want to thank you for giving that back to me. I want to thank you for showing me all the possible modified positions till I gained my strength and confidence back. What was such an effort is now like a beautiful flowing dance. Now I can add Yoga to the list of active things I love to do. I can never thank you enough. You are a great teacher and I feel so very lucky to have joined your class. Yours truly in health and joy, Nancy

Sue Conrad is a great instructor! Two months ago, I was in the worst shape of my life and after Sue’s pilates and strength training several time a week, along with cardio, I have lost 29 pounds! Sue had plenty of modified moves for me, when I wasn’t able to keep up with the class. Her patience and encouragement kept me coming back. I highly recommend any class she teaches!

Leona’s Success Story

Sue gets you moving and always makes working out fun! I just completed, Boot Camp and Kick-Boxing Classes with Sue Conrad. What a great teacher and a great experience! I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep-up, but Sue was so encouraging and always reminded us to work at our own pace. I am going to be 49 years old this year, and I did it! My daughter, who is 21 years old encouraged me to go with her, and together we had the best time working out! I encourage others to try these classes, you won’t be disappointed! Sue gets you moving and always makes working out fun! Thank you Sue for making me feel stronger and healthier!

Sue’s prenatal yoga class provided a weekly opportunity to be with other mama-to-be’s in a nurturing space. It was wonderful to have an exercise I knew was safe for a pregnant body and I met wonderful folks. Thanks, Rachel and baby Willa

Sara

I signed up for Sue’s Prenatal Yoga Class when I was around 18 weeks along, and ended up doing two, six week sessions with her! Before I was pregnant, I had done a few other yoga classes over a couple of years, and always had struggled trying to find the right breathing pattern. In general, I always struggled with yoga. Once I began Sue’s Prenatal Yoga Class, I actually learned the correct way to find my breath doing different poses, and just slowed down and went at my own pace.

Sue taught us different breathing techniques, and a couple different positions/stretches to do throughout pregnancy that I was able to do in the delivery room between contractions. Giving birth was definitely the hardest thing I have ever done, but I am glad I was taught how to do different comfortable poses to help, and get me through delivery.

Darcie

Sue’s prenatal yoga class gave me a weekly time to relax, move my body, and meet other moms-to-be. I enjoyed the class enough to sign up for a second one, and looked forward to it every week! Sue helps guide the students through new poses and tailors the class to the participants. Definitely recommend taking this class during pregnancy!

Laura

I highly recommend this class for anyone in their 2nd or 3rd Trimester. Sue Conrad does a great job modifying poses to meet everyone’s needs wherever they may be in their practice and pregnancy. Ladies take this hour for yourselves to connect with your breath and your baby and help prepare your body for the miraculous arrival of your little one.

Flexibility, gentle stretching, soothing music, tranquility of body & mind, breath development, guided meditations, core muscle strength for my back (I’ve even given up my chiropractor): these are the rewards of taking Sensai Sue Conrad’s “Gentle Yoga” classes for the past three years. I cannot recommend her enough to all seeking quality of life with a gentle approach. Steven SLO, Ca.
