Super Suzi is our official #SageSnacks ambassador. She’s also a part time Sage Fitness student and a real go-getter! You may have noticed her yummy recipes going out on our social channels lately leaving you in a state of drool. This week we caught up with her so we could put a face to the name for you guys AND delve into a ‘5 mins with Suzi’ to chat about fitness, super powers and snacks.
Question: You’re obviously into your fitness. What are your TOP tips for breaking up the ‘ground hog day’ fitness routine?
Suzi: I try to mix up my workouts and constantly challenge my body by mixing cardio training with strength training.
Question: How do you juggle being a super mum to three with being a SUPER Sage Fitness student?
Suzi: Being a mum is the most rewarding role and I’m so fortunate to have children that make me smile daily. But maintaining a balance between family, study and life is the key to keeping me organised.
Question: If you could have a fitness super power, what would it be and why?
Suzi: It would be to be SUPER FAST. I’m a runner and I always work on my endurance and speed.
Question: Out of all the fantastic #SageSnack recipes you’ve kindly shared with us so far which is your favourite and how do you incorporate them into your day to day nutrition program?
Suzi: I LOVE chocolate and I can proudly say I’m addicted to it, so my favourite would be the cocoa smoothie. I usually have it pre workout because it gives me the energy to perform at my BEST!
Question: We’ll be sad to see you leave us and graduate in October, so what’s next for you after your journey with us at Sage?
Suzi: Hopefully I’ll be working as a qualified Personal Trainer, helping and motivating others to achieve their fitness goals.
