A few years ago, while living on the mainland, Susan decided to take control of her fitness and enlisted the help of a P.T. in a small private studio. Away from prying eyes, she was introduced to squats, lunges, push ups, lat pull downs, fitball squats, dumbbell rows, dumbbell bench press and boxing which were the mainstay of her twice weekly sessions.

Susan was hooked by the benefits these sessions gave in developing technique, relieving work stress, and in gradually feeling more competent and confident.

When her initial trainer took up professional road cycling, Susan moved to a new trainer with whom she stayed twice weekly for the next five years before moving overseas.  Focused on results, Susan’s new trainer who helped in the fitness screening of senior AFL hopefuls, increased the rigor of her programme to include core strength and conditioning, balance, agility and aerobic endurance (boxing; stepper, rowing, elliptical machines) elements.

In 2012, having moved to the United Arab Emirates, Susan sought out Abu Dhabi’s Haddins Gym where she thrived five early mornings a week over the next 4+ years gaining muscle and toning her body.  While she could hold her own “planking”, Susan recalls at first not being able to “bear crawl” and initially refusing to do a “burpee”, both she later mastered.

It was in Abu Dhabi, Susan really appreciated the fun, camaraderie and benefits of outdoor group exercises, which is what she brings to “BB Fit”.

In 2017 Susan returned to her home state of Tasmania and decided to turn this passion into a small business for the benefit of others. Susan completed a Certificate IV in Fitness at Southbank TAFE (QLD) , adding accreditation since in aqua, suspension and boxing instruction to this qualification.

Susan’s philosophy: “Age is just a number; the stronger and fitter you are, the better you will feel, the more fun and quality of life you will enjoy”
