Susan McKillop

Crossfit Coach

Suz’s CrossFit Journey started in 2009. After a long battle with her weight, the mother of two decided it was time to invest in a personal trainer – BEST DECISION EVER!! He introduced her to the CrossFit methodology and she hasn’t looked back since.

As soon as the first CrossFit box opened in Dunedin she had to join. CrossFit challenged her physically and mentally and the results changed who she is today in such a positive way.

She represented Team CFD on an international level in 2012 and 2013 at the Pacific Regionals in Wollongong. She is living proof this process works, and now wants to share that with others.

In 2012 Suz completed her CrossFit Level 1 cert and started coaching a new women’s only program out of CrossFit Dunedin.

Suz’s favourite movements are cleans and hspu . Her least favourite movements are running and rowing.

“I’ve realised the joy and excitement I get from coaching far exceeds the joy I get as an athlete. To help someone achieve something they thought impossible or scary is the most rewarding part of my job. To help them move with more functionality and freedom is what keeps this job exciting. I want people to leave the gym knowing they can run with their kids, pick up their grandchildren and simply lead a healthier safer life.”
