Sue D'Alonzo

I began my fitness career in 1981 and continue to love my job. I began as a Group Exercise Leader and still teach a variety of classes such as: Tabata Bootcamp/Circuit, Strength and Conditioning, Step, Total Body Circuit Training, Functional Core Fitness, General Exercise, HIIT, Interval Training to name a few. I also have an IN HOME personal training business called SueD-Fit.I am certified with The American College of Sports medicine. I can either come to your home or train at a private studio. I believe that my service is extremely valuable for all fitness levels from beginners to advanced. I will design and implement a program just for you, depending upon your needs and goals. I am very professional and respectful of your time and commitment.

I am the Co-Owner of Pinole Valley Bootcamp and the owner of D-Fit Outdoor Workout.
Pinole Valley Bootcamp is a six week, one to three day a week outdoor program located in Pinole California. D-Fit Workout is an ongoing outdoor workout in the North Berkeley area of Northern California. I challenge and "nudge", encourage and persuade you to work just a bit harder than you think you can. Each bootcamp is designed with success in mind, it is designed to work your entire body each time, and being outdoors is a bonus!

I am an ACE Certified Health Coach. Health Coaching allows individuals to set personal, realistic goals. Health Coaching allows me to assist my clients to achieve success and lifetime habits. Generally we work for 12 -25 weeks, depending on the needs, commitment, and stage of readiness. I have had great success with my Health coaching clients, they have all reached the goals they have set and continue to do so!

I am a Fitness Business Consultant for every aspect of the fitness industry. I will assess your club, gym or studio depending on the needs of improvement.I can start from your front desk personnel to your staff, your group exercise schedule, your instructors abilities and capability to follow specific guidelines and program design. I will also observe your trainers while they train and I will then analyze and outline areas that need improvement and fine tuning in order for your club to become more successful.

I am a very seasoned professional with thirty two years of experience. I have a Group Exercise Leader Certification with ACSM and Personal Training with ACSM and am also a Certified Tabata Bootcamp Instructor. Along with my Health Coaching Certification I am able to personalize a fitness program along with a lifestyle and weight management program to fit anyone's needs.

If you want to try something new, if you are new and don't know how to start, if you are a fitness club owner and want to get down to the nitty gritty of what it really takes to run a club, please contact me.

    I've worked happily with Sue for almost 2 years. She has definitely made me into a stronger, more balanced and fit person. She's compassionate, interesting, incredibly prompt and well organized. I like her!

    Fortunately I found her right after my husband was diagnosed with an incurable neurological disease. I was depressed and decided to add fitness rather than cookies to my routine. Sue sounded good from her reviews. I met her and we've been working every week since.

    I appreciate her patience with me. I did not bring a "gung ho" attitude to the party. At first I did lose weight but as the stresses in my life have escalated my interest in watching my diet has waned and my nightly glasses of wine have stayed consistent. I shudder to think where I would be without Sue.

    I walk 10,000+ steps per day. I work out once a week. I feel relatively emotionally stable and Sue has contributed greatly to this... She's a good listener too. I am a thankful and loyal client.

    Working with Sue is a great addition of health to my life. I'm very grateful to her.

    I am a 67 yr. old woman who has had the privilege of being encouraged by Sue for over a decade. Over the years, she has remained consistent and focused in her commitment to each individual in her class. She is observant, a good listener, and thorough in her decisive approach to helping trainees achieve quality of life through exercise. Her serious, professional approach is research-based and takes into consideration the whole person and the habits that contribute or detract from well-being. I feel extremely fortunate to have the privilege (and fun) of working with her regularly in a group, outdoor setting!

    Amazing, amazing, amazing. I am a 68 years old woman and I've been working with Sue for 15 years. She continues to be the best personal trainer ever - helping me be prepared and recover from surgeries and be in the best shape I could be in. She even gives suggestions for eating healthy and maintaining healthy habits. I look forward to seeing her twice a week and love that she helps me reach beyond what I think I can do. She also does a lot of balance work and work with the body that helps exercise the brain as well. She gets 5 stars and more in my estimation.

    I met Sue when I started attending her Pinole Valley Bootcamp. I did five or six sessions, lost 30 pounds, and started to remember what it was like to push myself physically! I started to play tennis again after a 15 year lapse and decided I wanted Sue as a personal trainer. We have been working together ever since.

    I love Sue's no nonsense but compassionate approach to training (and life). She doesn't let me off the hook and she pushes me BUT she always has my best interests in mind and makes sure I'm never doing something that will injure me.

    In addition to the (wonderful) services she provides, she has numerous connections and contacts in the Bay Area to very well qualified professionals in related areas that provide related services.

    I couldn't be more happy with a personal trainer. I look forward to each of our sessions and I feel great after working out with Sue.
