Health Practitioner Name | Susan Sullivan Susan’s goal with clients is to create their own unique path to fitness, which is rewarding, progressive and yes, fun! Each client is assessed and their program designed. Workouts are a synthesis of corrective stretching, core training, resistance work and balance. Alignment and good form are part of the training process, so that each client learns the safest way to move. Susan often uses circuit training to maximize session time. She believes the only "miracles" in training are consistency, focus and work.
