Sue Seaglund, 62, Mostly Retired, Rochester Hills

When did you start at Crossfit Reviver? 02/01/2016

What is your athletic background?: I grew up in an athletic household where my dad was an assistant basket ball coach at the University of Michigan. For most of my life I have participated in some kind of athletic endeavor, either organized sports or physical fitness. I’m an avid golfer.

What is your favorite and least favorite WOD / movement?: My favorite WOD is one that combines cardio and strength exercises. I’m not a fan of the Assault Bike and need to push myself to get decent results (consistent RPM/cals). It’s a love/hate thing!

What is your greatest accomplishment? Personal, professional and fitness related: I’m an alcoholic who has recently celebrated 30 years of sobriety; that is probably my biggest personal accomplishment! Professionally, I enjoyed having a managerial role in General Motors’ racing programs. I was fortunate to spend time in the company of many celebrities and helped shape the racing career of NASCAR star Jimmie Johnson.

Has CFR made you better? If yes, how so?: CFR keeps me involved with young people on a day to day basis. I’m truly grateful to be able to be in the same environment working out with them and not be made to feel that I don’t belong there. CFR has improved my overall fitness by ensuring that I move properly and concentrate on form over speed.

What are your hobbies?: I enjoy reading, jigsaw puzzles, and golf.

What are your Top 5 favorite movies?: Wizard of Oz, Field of Dreams, Turner & Hooch, Forrest Gump, Shawshank Redemption

What is one thing we don’t know about you?: I once sat on a dais with President George HW Bush.

What are your goals in life? Personal, professional and fitness related: My goal is simple and incorporates personal, professional, and fitness: Enjoy my life understanding that I serve a loving God! If I don’t lose sight of the fact that loving Him and loving my neighbor are the only things I must do I’ll be okay no matter what happens!
