Toronto – Status Fitness Magazine has signed Susan Arruda to join the Status editorial team. Susan has over 40 years of experience in the fitness industry, she stands for strength, courage, confidence and independence for women. Susan will have her own expert column in Status where will share her health and fitness insights.

Susan Arruda shares her thoughts on joining the Status Fitness Magazine Team
It is recognized by an iconic fitness magazine. It is a validation of sorts, outside of images on social media, and “likes,” which are not necessarily reliable metrics. However,  inclusion in Status Fitness as an expert writer is a high honour and a type of accreditation.  It means that, in particular, Editor In Chief Rodney Jang recognized something in me that was enough to reach out to me and offer me this expert column. Even though I operate my own successful online fitness business, this brings me more to the world outside of my own training community and I am so grateful for this opportunity.

It is a fitness and print industry standard! High-end both in appearance and content. On a personal note, it brings back some fond memories as the magazine launched one year after I started competing. I remember seeing it on magazine stands and at the shows, so it brings me back. Status is tied to one of the most cherished comments I have ever received from my competition days via David Ford, Status’ lead photographer.

Susan Arruda shares her plan on bringing to the team and audience.
My fitness lifestyle is now in its fourth decade. I plan to bring a broad perspective on training through different stages of life, injuries, competition, pregnancy and different seasons of life. I will encourage women to embrace weight training as the go-to for a fit and lean physique. 40 years of training brings with it a lot of experience as well as techniques to avoid boredom and plateauing. I have some non-conventional training methods that I can’t wait to share!

Status Editor-in-Chief Rodney Jang shares his thoughts on Susan Arruda
Susan is the consummate fitness icon. I first saw Susan on stage nearly 20 years ago and was impressed with her physique, pose and personality. Fast forward to today, Susan has carried her fitness and healthy lifestyle into her 50’s along with all the vast wisdom she has acquired. We are thrilled to have Susan on our Status Fitness Magazine panel of fitness experts as I know she will bring massive value to our audience.
