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

Bryan’s Success Story

I had never been a very active person and my weight was always one of my main struggles. I worked with Sue on and off for about six years. I had never been a very active person and my weight was always one of my main struggles. After a long time of not working out, I went back to Sue and realized how badly I needed a life change. Sue helped me by challenging me in my workouts, keeping me accountable for working out three days a week, and even giving me tips on healthy things to eat. I have gone from 284 pounds to 197, gained strength, and I feel so much better thanks to Sue and her training.

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!!!

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!

When I found Sue Conrad’s Prenatal Yoga class I knew it would be a great class to help improve my strength. The first day of the class we were greeted by Sue’s smiling face and a warm hello. As a first time mother, it was nice to be around other women who were going through similar things I was experiencing. It was so wonderful to be able to spend an hour really connecting with my body and the baby growing inside me. Sue moved through each pose slowly allowing us to feel relaxed before we moved to the next pose.

I would recommend this class to any pregnant mother who wishes to gain strength and become more connected with their child.

Ginger’s Success Story

Dear Sue, Thank you so much for such a fantastic class. It is not just the exercise that I love, but also the time spent with fun people who are all fighting the same fight. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it and look forward to it. When I started taking your class six months ago, I was more than a little apprehensive, thinking you would be barking orders. You are certainly strong and don’t take any prisoners (!) but you are more than encouraging and the class is so much fun. Who knew I would be working my abs so hard both by ‘bicycles’ and laughing so hard when we play tag or try to punch the ball out of each other’s hands?! I have lost about 20 pounds in your class which has been fantastic. I feel like myself again and am only 15 pounds away from my target weight. I have another 6 months until I turn 40 and actually think for the first time since I had kids, that maybe I really can do this! With your help! Other aspects of my life have also improved dramatically since I started taking your class. I feel so much more optimistic and no matter how tired I am from my children waking up all night long, I always face the day with a happy heart. I honestly can’t thank you enough. You rock, Sgt Sue!!!!

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

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!

I started working out with Sue in January. I thought I was in better shape. How wrong I was. Sue keeps the classes fun and engaging. There is always a challenge. Who knew I could run nearly a quarter of a mile. I know it doesn’t sound like much but to me I can now put a new goal on the table and have the courage to sign up for a 5k.
