Success Stories

I’ve never been in better shape! The variety of exercises that Judy does keeps it fun and exciting everyday!
I saw this sign shopping with my best friend when she was in town and immediately thought of Judy and her business. I'm so very grateful to Judy for not giving up on me. I've not been the easiest client to say the least. Maybe her toughest... I struggle with consistency and had hormone issues that affected my cognition, focus, mood, weight, memory among other issues. I also went through  a horrific divorce, pinched nerve and back issue that I finally addressed. It's not a stretch to say I got stuck in the victim role in retrospect. Judy  stuck with me even when I disagreed, didn't show up, made excuses, went elsewhere, stretched the truth out of embarrassment of not being consistent or following through as I have realized I avoided conflict because of my recent divorce. Judy many times would give me positive and constructive feedback but I was not in a place to hear constructive but  I found later she was spot on albeit I was not prepared to hear it. Most trainers would have said cya but she just quietly built proper boundaries and welcomed me back every time I returned. I'm a therapist so most think we are immune to having issues...  that's funny....  if your a good therapist you are constantly working on yourself especially when faced with a divorce, death of my mom and job change. Compliment that with my hormone issue and it's simply a recipe for a few tough years and not being my best self. I'm grateful she never gave up on me and never directly called me out as she is a good solid caring giving person and I'm forever grateful. I'm a very private person and I'm writing this to let you know she has been a godsend to me and supported me even when I made it impossible for her to do so. I'm grateful for the women that I'm surrounded with when we are in group as they are so encouraging and fun. Judy is helping me build muscle and I've lost weight and inches. I'm not at my goal but with my hormones leveling through diet, exercise and treatment I know I'll get there. Thank you Judy for being the best trainer I could have to build muscle and stop my sugar habit! I've not only lost weight I've gained personal insight in this process and evolved as we are never fully there and a work in progress???#grateful — feeling grateful with Judy Arazoza.
Judy has helped me so much. It is about keeping the routine.

Yup, that’s my fabulous younger cousin and muse, Judy Arazoza! I am a convert to her system of mind, body, spirit. I have exercised all my life ( my dad was once a Phys. Ed. Teacher after all)but reaching past menopause the weight gain in weird places was driving me crazy. I have worked with personal trainers one-on-one and in group settings. Judy’s preparation and knowledge make her group training the best I’ve ever done. I had a consultation with her on nutrition and she helped me refocus my eating. Then I decided it was time to drive the 25 minutes each way to experience her classes. I’m hooked! It’s been 1 and1/2 years and I wouldn’t do anything else. If you can’t make class there are alternatives. Her online training and archived workouts are always available. She works around all injuries and modifies exercises accordingly. Also, did I mention it’s always different, I’m never bored and it’s affordable! I’d conclude by stating that she’s been able to keep me feeling young and energetic and for that I’m forever grateful! Thank you, Judy!
In 4 months, I lost 9 inches! 3.5 inches in my belly, 2.5 in my waist, 2 in breasts/back and 1 in upper thighs. Your unique resistant training workouts combined with the TRX and your constant reminders to keep the core and everything tight and the little reminders to add more veggies to my diet have really transformed my body!!! It only translates to a few pounds, which I think in the past I focused more on, but losing inches is amazing, my clothes fit better and I am standing taller and leaner. I am so happy and motivated to keep working out and get stronger and more fit! I am so thankful to have you in my life as my cheerleader, my trainer and my friend.
Just wanted to let you know how excited I am!  It took almost a year but I feel my lower stomach muscles

Working with Judy Arazoza has been a tremendous blessing. I’ve learned about a balanced diet and lifestyle as well as training like a champ while still being able to live my life as a wife and mother. Judy’s approach to the female body is sensible, knowledgeable and extremely compassionate. I continue to work with Judy as a coach for my own accountability as well as continuing my education and experience as a fitness professional for healthy, fit woman.

I loved my training experience with Judy. I had always wanted to compete in a fitness competition and when I found her as a coach I was inspired by her experiences in the community and her compassion and empathy as a mother and a wife. I enjoyed the process as I began to see all of my physical abilities grow. I was confident in sticking to the plan… And the plan was always very manageable. It was an empowering, personalized experience. Not only did I receive the support preshow I also received the support post-show which was just as important. Judy has a lifestyle and practice of embracing one’s own strength and empowering one to go beyond their own limits and expectations but also to cheer and embrace the strength of others in their community.

Prior to working with Judy, I jumped on A LOT of diet bandwagons. You name it, I probably tried it…. cleanses, strict restriction diets, pills, I used to commonly joke that my next step would be the coffee and cigarettes diet where I would just drink coffee and smoke cigarettes!!! (I have never smoked) but I was trying to express how desperate I was!! Crazy, huh!

Sooooo…. then came Judy. Here’s this woman who, let’s be honest here, is ripped, happy, and always seems to have all of this energy, says to the group “There are no restrictions “. What?! No restrictions?! What’s the catch, right??

Adopt new behaviors, identify your “Why”, consistency, and PATIENCE. She also shows you how to look at food as fuel, something to enjoy. (it’s not the enemy) Learning to love yourself. Here’s the best part….. ignore the scale!!

Through the process I identified my Why…. my daughter looks up to me as an example … I don’t want her to see me adopting unhealthy behaviors to be skinny as the ultimate result, skewing her body image in the process. Instead, she sees mommy being healthy, happy, strong and confident.

Changing the way I look at my workouts. We’re not in our 20’s anymore so we shouldn’t be working out like a 20-year-old.
