I'm a new dad, and one of the things that was most important
to me when my daughter was born was reestablishing a quality
fitness and health program. I went through a practice workout
session with Susan, and I knew immediately she was the perfect
person and personality to get me back into shape and focused
on making changes in my life. Not only has she motivated me
to work hard every day for my family and for myself, but she
consistently keeps our workouts engaging and innovative. Simply
put, Susan is awesome!

I have struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. I've
tried several different diets and while some of them have
worked in terms of weight loss, they were never sustainable.
Susan has helped me understand how to eat healthy as a lifestyle
and more specifically, eating ideally for ME. Since working
with Susan I've lost 27lbs and have maintained the same weight
for a year and a half! Thank you, Susan!
I started working with Susan in February 2011 after having
major surgery on my back. She has been fantastic. She understands
my special medical needs and has tailored my workouts to keep
me safe while helping me to gain strength and endurance. Thanks
to Susan, at my one year medical check up my doctor said I
was a "star".
"What I appreciate most about Susan is her skill in
communication, her positive attitude and her the knowledge
and concern for her clients needs. Susan's skill in communication
ensure's that we're always on the same page about my goals,
progress, and needs. Her positive attitude helps inspire me
to attack the workout even when I feel tired at the end of
a long day. Finally, Susan's expansive knowledge about physiology
and exercise not only keeps our exercises fresh, fun and interesting,
but also allows me to exercise without aggravating my chronic
Susan in one of her classes, which are fantastic. I hired
Susan with a friend for more personalized sessions and it
has been such a great experience. I have seen such a difference
in my endurance, shape etc since I started training with her.
I have also learned a lot about how to get a better workout
on my own as well as healthy eating habits and other suggestions.
I am really pleased. ~Jennifer R.
Susan is a fantastic trainer. Her innovative approach to
working out is refreshing; no session is the same. She is
a very thoughtful person, and puts a lot of time into specializing
each workout for me. The results have been amazing! She has
gone above and beyond, helping me with nutritional tips and
providing me with information about caring for your body.
She sends me motivational quotes! What trainer does that?
"Susan is a results driven individual who takes great
pride in her work with her clients. She interacts well with
people and is very goal oriented. She takes great pride in
keeping up with the latest industry trends in physical fitness
"Susan is a veteran of the fitness field
and an asset to Saldare Body Therapy and Essential Nutrition
and Fitness. I continue to recommend her fully to all client
~Jennifer M. Owner Saldare Body Therapy
"I have worked as a Group Exercise instructor
with Susan for 6 years and loved her classes so much that
when I started Channel Fitness, I knew I had to have her teach
here. Within days, she developed a following and the members
love her passion and enthusiasm for what she does. She is
an extremely hard worker and is driven by her love for fitness.
She has since developed a roster of personal training clients
and consistently delivers a high level of service to each
of them, proving herself as an invaluable asset to our organization."
~Erica D. Managing Partner at Channel Fitness
"I have trained with Susan for almost a
year now and have nothing but good things to say. I was referred
by my close friend who lost 40lbs over a few months of training
with her through working out and a serious diet overhaul.
She is incredibly flexible and schedules appointments week
to week with me around my hectic schedule. Her availability
in her studio, at my home or outside ( weather permitting)
keeps the training interesting. Our workouts vary based on
my current needs and she always finds a way to make it fun.
I highly recommend her whether you are making fitness goals
or just maintaining your health."
"I started training with Susan a little over a month
before my wedding, I was working out, taking classes and what
I thought was eating healthy but was "stuck". The
owner of my gym recommended Susan - she was everything I needed
and more! She listened to my goals, explained to me what we
could realistically accomplish and set up a plan that would
help me walk down the aisle and not only look good but feel
awesome. I trained with her twice a week up until my Wedding
(only 10 times) and I ended up toning up significantly and
feeling amazing. And everyone noticed, I have received so
many compliments on how I look and it's because of Susan.
I am far from athletic and now I thrive on going to the gym
and pushing myself. I love it now, training with Susan has
given me renewed confidence. I was never bored, she always
provides variety and made it fun. I truly looked forward to
our sessions. So much so that even after my Wedding I decided
to continue to train with her and have made working out more
of a lifestyle than a short term goal. She has also given
me great nutrition advice which has helped me improve my eating
habits (she has the best recipes). My post wedding workout
has been retooled to attain long term results. It's now a
mix of cardio, kickboxing, Plyometrics, Kettle Bells and weights.
I find her motivating and fun to work out with. I cannot wait
to see what I can accomplish by the Holiday season. I highly
recommend training with Susan!"
"I met Susan in 2003 when she began teaching classes
at my local gym in South Boston. She taught a variety of classes
at including Boot Camp, Spinning, Kickboxing, Step and Plyo.
She was by far the most popular instructor. I approached Susan
and asked if she would be willing to train me privately but
at that time she was still working in Corporate America and
didn't have the capacity to take on anymore clients. A few
years passed and I bumped into Susan on the street one day
and she mentioned that she was now training on a full-time
basis. I was thrilled! We booked a session on the spot and
I've since been training with her twice a week and my results
have been substantial in the past 6 months! I've since reached
my first goal and am now quickly approaching my second! People
have noticed my results and have aske me "how did you
do it?" to which I responded, "... with the help
of my trainer". A few of those same people began to train
with Susan after witnessing my results. She is motivating,
keeps things fresh and is always available to help with any
questions that I may have. Her love, passion and devotion
to fitness are apparent as her client's successes depict this
