Client Spotlight - January 2019

 

Meet Sue Collisson!

I’m a former paralegal with County Counsel’s office in the litigation division. Now, however, I’ve been enjoying retirement with my husband for the last year and a half.

 

When did you start coming to Prevail?

My initial entry to training classes pre-dates Prevail, when Hayashida and Associates ran their own classes, and continued when Maury contracted with Prevail to provide trainers.  Two of my current classmates and I have been working out together in these classes for about the last eight years!

 

What impact has training at Prevail made in your life?

Over the course of the first several months of these strength training classes, I lost 28 pounds and regained the strength I lost after having to stop playing handball. Although I’ve backtracked in the last couple of years due to injuries and arthritis, I feel I’m on track to get my strength back, burn off some of those re-gained pounds, and stay flexible.

 

Do you have any words of encouragement or tips for somebody new to exercise (or restarting)?

Start slowly and don’t hurt yourself in the beginning, or you won’t come back.  Be patient, but know that your strength will develop, and it is so worth it.  And ladies, developing muscle strength definitely burns calories! It makes you feel better too.

 

What are your hobbies?

Walking 3-5 miles a day from the harbor with friends; taking adult ed classes (yoga, meditation, QiGong), reading, traveling to the Caribbean.

 

What is your favorite movement/exercise?

The sled is my favorite exercise, because it’s a perfect combination of cardio and strength training of a lot of muscle groups.  The floor crawls are my least favorite because the movements encompass all of my injury and arthritis limitations.

 

Any additional comments you would like to share?

I appreciate the willingness of all the trainers to offer me modifications for the exercises. They are a great group of dedicated professionals!

 

Sue and her husband, Craig.
