About Susana


I’m Susana, Personal Trainer/Nutritionist/Stretch Therapist since 2006. I hold multiple certifications from ISSA in Exercise Therapy, Sports Nutrition, Strength and Conditioning, Prescriptive Stretching & Kettlebell Training.  My training style is fun yet challenging, so you’ll have a good time while improving your health and body.  

I put 100% into each of my clients, focusing on their unique goals. I listen to why my client wants to train, then write a specific program based on that client’s needs, goals, limitations and fitness evaluation. 

I am extremely experienced, patient, friendly, focused, and results-driven. I have trained athletes, models, CEO’s, brain surgeons, senior citizens, children, people with special needs, people recovering post-injury, pre/post natal, brides to be, couples name it, I most likely have experience with it. 

Finding the right trainer can be a difficult process.  How do you choose from hundreds of profiles- many of which look awesome!?Here’s why you should choose me:

Ive recently returned to NYC after spending two years in Europe to find my clients without personal trainers. When I asked why, I was told : “I looked while you were away. I did. Nobody is like you”.  

Lets see if you agree. I look forward to helping you transition into a better lifestyle! 


(I train primarily on the Upper East Side/Upper West Side but will travel further for an additional fee).

My training philosophy

If it’s not fun and it’s not producing results, you’re with the wrong trainer.

Susana is motivating, dedicated, and driven, and truly goes the extra mile to meet her clients needs, both in terms of exercise and nutrition. She's knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging, and most of all, she makes working out FUN -- because of her, it's something you want to stick to and actually look forward to, making health a lifestyle, not a chore.

Susan is reliable, extremely knowledgable and personable. I enjoyed spending time with her even when she pushed me with visible results in a short time. I highly recommend Susan as a personal trainer and private personal trainer.

I had terrific results working with Sue last Fall. I hired her for 3 months and with her diet advice and expert training, I managed to lose 25 pounds - over the Holidays no less!! Her workouts were never the same, the varitey was the right balance of challenge and fun. Most of all, her diet advice was the magic key for me to finally lose the pounds that I had slowly accumulated over 10 years. Best of all, I have managed to keep the weight off, 9 months later. Her advice is still in my head and I still follow what I learned from her. I know in the future I will hire her again to kick my workouts into high gear to give my body the perfect amount of tone. I HIGHLY recommend Sue!!

I highly recommend Sue Taft as a personal trainer to both men and women of all ages. I have trained with Sue for over five years. She is a great motivator, and she is constantly challanging and helping me to reach new levels and goals, all without injury. Sue is also very conscious about nutrition, and is always providing me with nutitional tips to help improve energy, and maintain my weight.
