June Spotlight: Sue

June 2, 2018

 

 

Beep beep beeeeeeeep.

 

The beautiful sound of an early wake-up permeates the room. For many of us Breakfast Clubbers, the wake-up comes minutes before our 6:15am class start—truly, it’s amazing how fast we can all get up and at ‘er in the morning!

 

And not just wake-up and roll-out of bed. Wake-up, roll-out and CRUSH it.

Sue, a regular AMer, is no exception to crushing it. She’s just one of those go-getter folks.

 

As a lover of the great outdoors, Sue wears many hats: providing one-on-one help to special needs high school students as an Integration Aide, advocating for the preservation of Montreal’s green spaces (particularly L’Anse-a-L’Orme), maintaining lush home AND community gardens—to name just a few -- all while being a busy mom of two.

 

In fact, her son is how we were afforded the privilege of meeting Sue.

 

“The first class I did at TriForce was in Roxboro Park. Ryan told me his buddy's sister was starting an exercise group in the park and that I should go with him. I loved exercising outside so I was immediately interested.”

 

But we didn’t get ahold of Sue right away.

 

“I was already a member at another gym so I waited until that membership was over to join TriForce. It was hard at first because I had to break up with my gym partner of 9 years (she could not come to Roxboro to work out at 6:15 am!) but we have both replaced our gym memberships with other gyms and we still work out together 3 days a week at work. That's who holds me accountable to my schedule.”

 

That kind of impressive commitment to exercise coupled with her go-with-the-flow-don’t-say-no attitude towards new exercises or heavier weight is exactly why Sue is such a BEAST. She’s one step away from cranking out unaided pull-ups, and recently was the newest addition to our big 5-0 lbs club – on dumbbell bench press!
