"We are so lucky to have had Susan Van Hoosen, CPT in our classes at Riverside JR High. She volunteered her time to “educate” our students on FUN-ctional Fitness activities that fit into our Muscular Strength and Endurance Fitness days. She came for 5 total days, showing all of our Wellness students the importance of maintaining or achieving a healthy “Functional” fitness level and the kids loved it.  She sent the kids through stations with teammates and made each activity relevant to 7th and 8th graders lives!
What a great experience for our Jr High students!!

Susan has also donated her time once a month to the staff at Riverside Jr High. She hosts’ a “Hump Day Fitness” workout for FREE for our staff to come and learn new techniques to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle. She caters every work out to meet the needs of each staff member. From Kettle bells, to weights, understanding the facilities we have, to partner workouts, and maintaining functional movements for mobility for a lifetime!

I would recommend Susan to anyone who is interested in making a life style change! Susan is a great motivator and loved by our staff!"
