I have had the pleasure of having Sue as my fitness instructor for several months now. (Spin, Kick boxing and Boot Camp) She is very encouraging and welcoming to those of us “new” to the workout scene. I love her classes for so many reasons…her positive, upbeat attitude, great music selection, constantly changing routines and her gentle nudges to get us back on track. I look forward to working out with Sue again this year!!

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.

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!

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

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.

My journey with Sue began in October last year. I have participated in the M/W/F Tabata Bootcamp class that she offers at my local gym. It is now the end of February and I am now down 20lbs, and am much stronger. I truly admire Sue’s committment to all her clients, and her contagious enthusiasm. We are all different sizes, shapes, and abilities, yet Sue has us all working to each of our fullest potentials. Class never gets old because she keeps the circuits fresh each time. With her encouragement I have now added her Powerhouse Spin once a week and love it!

Sue is a great instructor! She gears her workouts for all fitness levels. In some cases this would not be good for those who need a more intense workout but, she makes sure to show how to intensify each routine. Sue knows how to “encourage” you without being one of those in your face instructors. I have been taking many of her classes for months and plan on continuing to do so. Thanks Sue!

I had always wanted to try a Kickboxing class and was excited that Sue offered one. I am not an early morning person (6:30 am) but Sue’s class really motivated me. She is encouraging and makes you feel like you can do it no matter what your physical level is. I plan on taking her class again and even bought myself a a cardio kickboxing bag. Sue may seem to be a quiet person but she just lights up when she is teaching her class.

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!

Rani’s Success Story

In January of this year, I had to have arthroscopic surgery on my left knee. Needless to say, I hated being so stationary and helpless. I was doing physical therapy, but it was a slo-go process. It wasn’t until I signed up for Sue’s Cycle class, that I finally started to get muscle tone back into my leg and energy back into my life! I loved it so much that the next quarter, I signed up to cycle twice a week!! It’s energizing, invigorating and totally fun! Sue has a kind yet contagious tone that make you want to work hard! She is not pushy and only expects one to do what they can. I appreciate her tenacity and conversation and wide range of music choice! If you are staying on the Central California Coast for awhile and want to get a wonderful workout form a fantastic instructor, check out all the amazing classes Sue teaches! SHE is amazing!!! Fitness really can be fun!!!
