    • Susanne Ware (BS, CPT, CNS)
      Susanne Ware (BS, CPT, CNS)Trainer

      As a high school athlete in Florida, Susanne learned early on the relationship between cross training and performance. Weight lifting and running became staples in her training regime as a player on the women’s soccer team at Wingate University. As she continued to integrate a variety of activities into her own personal fitness program and saw her conditioning soar, it increased her enthusiasm for the art of keeping fit.

      I love helping others…it’s my passion. As an individual, sometimes it’s hard to motivate and commit yourself to working out. Seeing results physically and getting good reports from your doctor after check-ups are great motivators.
