CrossFit Level 1 Cert, CrossFit Strongman Cert
Born and raised in Lorain but calls Amherst home. Susan started CrossFit in Feb 2012 when her Son, serving in the United States Navy, was home on leave before a voluntary deployment to Afghanistan. He challenged her to do CrossFit while he was gone. She took him up on the challenge (because what mother wouldn’t) and was soon calling herself an athlete. With no athletic background this 46 year old couch potato Mom found herself competing with people half her age and keeping up. In 2014 she obtained her L1 and has goals to continue her coaching development with other CrossFit certifications in areas of weight lifting and Strongman.
Susan has been dubbed “Gym Mom” because of her unconditional love and dedication to every athlete and their goals. She’s quick to keep you in line and makes sure everyone cleans up their “toys”. She’ll celebrate your victories and never let you give up. She’ll encourage and motivate you like only a mother would with the calm and reassuring voice when you need it and occasional yelling to keep you going.
