    I've worked with Susan, primarily for resistance stretching, during the past year on the recommendation of my personal trainer in New Jersey. In that time, she has increased my flexibility in ways that conventional, static stretching never could, played a crucial road in speeding up my recovery from athletic endeavors like obstacle course races, trail runs, and high intensity workouts, and taught me practical, sustainable methods to counteract the daily negative physical effects of a stressful, sedentary job. Susan has become a trusted advisor, mentor, and friend. Her generosity of time and spirit, and positive outlook on life, transforms people. Highly recommended.

    I suffered an sports relates injury, pulling part of the bone and the attached muscle from my hip. When I was released to return to activity I found I was still unable to run or move comfortably. I tried every kind of therapy to return to my full strength but nothing worked. I came to Susan frustrated and pessimistic about my recovery. Susan did what no one else could and with each session I got stronger and stronger. Susan is remarkable and is the reason I am back to full activity. With Susan's help you can feel your best and improve your health

    Excellent, energetic, knowledgeable, patient and motivating-- everything anyone could want in a personal trainer. Having benefitted from Susan's knowledge and expertise in everything from Ki-Hara resistant stretching to NeuroKinetic therapy and muscle mashing, I am consistently impressed that Susan is not only sharing her knowledge and skills by teaching throughout the United States and internationally, but that she continues her growth as a trainer and body educator by regularly attending seminars and workshops to add tools to her instruction repertoire.
    Susan will take innovative approaches and help to increase mobility and function in even the most stubborn of joint pains. Whether you seek the fitness level of a professional athlete or dancer or, like me, just want to be able to improve strength, agility and movement as you age, you will not find a better professional than Susan Bianchi.

    I have trained with Susan for 7 years and recommend her without reservation!!

    I have been with Susan for 8 years. She has transformed my body in ways I didn't think possible. Susan has educated me on the importance of a good diet, and is extremely educated and knowledgeable in regards to the human body.I have suffered in the past with a frozen shoulder and she has helped me regain my mobility in my shoulder again. I will be 60 years old and Susan constantly challenges me and is always changing our workouts to get the maximum results out of me. Susan's expertise in stretching the body has kept me injury free for 8 years. She is phenomenal and because of her instruction and motivation I completed a half marathon!
