syphustraining_logo About Susie

Hello, and welcome to Real Food Real Fitness! I’m Susie Rahaim, HHC, PHC, certified holistic health, and wellness coach. I’m also a mom to four beautiful kids, athlete, Syphus junkie, wellness junkie, and REAL food activist turned blogger!


You can often find me in my kitchen prepping healthy meals and snacks. Cooking is a passion and also stress relief to me. I love to cook and create nutrient-dense foods for my family and friends and ultimately I want you to reach your ultimate healthy self by understanding your connection to the food you eat! Knowing where food grew and came from is a key component.

Also important is choosing to eat animals that were humanely raised on their natural diet, avoiding processed foods and preparing traditional nutritious foods in your own kitchen. When you cook and eat this way you begin to cultivate an awareness of what you are putting into your body.  Finding Real whole foods that work for you and healing yourself with a whole foods nutrient dense diet are all essential parts of being food connected.


I am a huge advocate for the Paleo diet yet my favorite take on it is the Primal Blueprint written by Mark Sisson. I also believe the teachings of Weston A. Price to be extremely beneficial and follow and prepare many of his recommended nourishing sacred foods.

My goal is to help you navigate through the mass amounts of health information out there today. The media and internet bombards us daily and its overwhelming very often conflicting health information. That is why I wanted to put information out there that busy people like ourselves can make sense of. I promise to give you the FACTS and not the fads of proper nutrition and overall wellness.  


Fitness is a huge part of my life too. I love to spend time with my kids outdoors and I love any type of athletic challenge especially HIIT (high-intensity interval training) my favorite being Syphus Training.

It is through primal functional fitness we can transform not only our bodies but our minds. We gain strength and the ability to deal with stress and whatever up’s and down’s life throws at us.

Primal exercise and HIIT (high-intensity interval training) is a way of exercising our bodies were meant to do. Sprints, running, walking, crawling, hopping, lunging, planks, balancing, lifting heavy things, pushing and pulling heavy things with short intervals of rest are all examples. We need to challenge this beautiful vessel we were given and it will produce a strong physique. Don’t get me wrong I do love a great pilates, yoga, or barre class and they too have their benefits. But I am a muscle girl, competitive and strong and I like a HIIT challenge!!


I believe my mission is to share and encourage the philosophy of a truly well-rounded healthy lifestyle in our modern world.
