"I started doing boot camp with Judy when I first came to Abbotsford from Vancouver. I was apprehensive when I first started as I had never joined a boot camp style class in the past. Judy made me feel welcomed...
"Before we started training together I was very caught up in being skinny because of my modelling. and my mom was worried about my eating habits. So I wanted to become more toned and I couldn’t do it on my own and I wanted some help with my eating to know what my body needs. My body definitely became more toned and I lost some weight, also I have started eating much better and healthier which makes me happier!!
I would recommend JD to everyone!! It is a very welcoming environment and I have became so close with Judy I am not scared to try new things and embarrass myself. And I have learned so so much from working with Judy."
