Sandy Sutter

Personal Trainer
Southeast & armed Services YMCA

Degrees and Certifications:

  • BS Psychology (neuropsychology focus)
  • Certified Personal Trainer with the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA-CPT)
  • CPR/AED/First Aid

Areas I Specialize In:

  • Total body strength/circuit training stability training; rehabilitation strengthening; guiding people to an overall healthier lifestyle.

My Training Philosophy:

  • You are capable of so much more than you realize! Whether starting a fitness program for the first time, recovering from a major surgery, or looking to reignite an old fitness regimen, it is a “team effort” between you and the trainer. “Stuff” happens in life, and by strengthening ourselves mentally, physically, and spiritually, together we CAN overcome!
  • I’m here to provide you a varied, challenging, and appropriately designed program that you CAN accomplish! I’m also here to educate you on aspects of “fit living”, keep you motivated, encouraged, and accountable to yourself and your goals. Knowledge is not power till you implement it, so, let’s dig in and get busy!

Interests and Achievements:

  • My greatest honor has been being “mommy” to my four dogs (playing frisbee, walking/hiking, playing ball, playing “baby”), three of whom were rescues! I can’t imagine life without dogs!
  • How our bodies function, respond, compensate and overcome, has fascinated me for decades! We are fortunate we live in a time with such progress in exercise and physiological research.
  • The highlights of my Navy career was to ride in the back seat of a two-seater training fighter jet with my Commanding Officer at the time, and being awarded Meritorious Captains Mast.
  • And, yes, I do enjoy the nice, and sometimes silly, Hallmark movies...with popcorn!
