Susie Lin Training @ Golds Gym ByJerryFredrick2013

AGE: 42
HEIGHT: 5’4″

WHY DID YOU START TRAINING?: I started training because I was inspired by my mother, who had received a kidney transplant in 1993. I saw the ordeal she went through while being on a donor wait list, dialysis, and finally a donor match/transplant. There was such physical tolls on her body and she stayed strong through it all.
During her recovery, she would slowly make her way from her hospital bed and walk slow, painful steps around the nurses’ station. She gradually regained her strength, increased her endurance and “walked” herself back to health!
I saw that it was this daily routine and mini physical victories that gave her vigor back. That is when I started running and weight training.
