When asked why Functional Fitness with Suzanne Andrews was selected for broadcast on KUEN TV, Program Assistant Chere Wood, stated, “We were looking for a high quality fitness show for Sunday mornings, and were excited to find Functional Fitness. It's a unique show among fitness programs because it is truly aimed at helping the average adult improve, instead of higher level athletes.”
