Back on the television screen, Suzanne Andrews focused on the type of workout which can best help the novice or experienced workout enthusiast accomplish whatever their goals might be. “That’s what I’ve focused on now for years,” the licensed occupational therapy practitioner said in the studio after the broadcast, “I  make fitness accessible to people over 40 and offer three levels of fitness using household equipment.  With the focus on function, everyone can live a stronger, fitter life".     

 During the Pain Free Back and Neck DVD Suzanne Andrews says with great sincerity, "I’m not just an Occupational Therapy Practitioner,  I used these same exercises to rehabilitate myself after a car accident." That is where Suzanne gets her empathy from while instructing the back and neck exercises during the 25 minute Functional Fitness back and neck DVD.  Her patients say she has an amazing gift for healing and Functional Fitness is favored by doctors.
