After 27 years in the fitness industry, Susan opened TrainSmarter in August of 2014. "I wanted to create an energetic atmosphere that would attract the best fitness professionals in the business. I was looking for trainers who have a thirst for learning more and a desire to be the best in our field. With that wealth of knowledge and experience we could change people's lives by helping them discover that their potential is so much greater than they dared to dream." Susan has a B.S. degree from Auburn University and began her personal training career in 1989. She was gold certified as a personal trainer by the American Council on Exercise in 1990. In 1998, she received her Level I Resistance Training Specialist certification at Resistance University in Oklahoma City and became the only certified ChiWalking/ChiRunning instructor in the Southeast in 2007. In 2011 she was awarded the Corrective Exercise Specialist certification from the National Association of Sports Medicine and corrective exercise has become her specialty. In 2014 and 2015 she completed the TRX courses Suspension Training, Rip Training and the highest level certification TRX offers, TRX TEAM. Most recently, she achieved her NCFI Corporate Fitness trainer certification. Susan's specialties include corrective exercise, strength training, running technique, sports-specific training, TRX training and mentoring fitness professionals.
