Judy is a long-term resident of Abbotsford and is the owner and head trainer at JD Fitness . She has been active in the fitness world for over 15 years. Growing up on a farm, sports were not an option as work took precedence so it was only after having kids that an active lifestyle came into play. After some life-changing events she realized it was time to step back and reassess life as she knew it which included re-evaluating the way health and fitness were being looked at in her own life. The importance of an active and healthy lifestyle became a focus and ignited a passion to help others do the same.
After being involved in larger gyms and organizations she saw the importance of people feeling like they belonged and mattered and were not just another number in the gym. People were getting lost and injured in large groups. JD Fitness Studio was designed to make people feel welcomed, important and carefully monitored to avoid injury.
Judy’s philosophy is to help you get the best out of life by showing you the way to discover and unleash your inner potential. She will guide you through a process that will alter the way you look at fitness by showing you that each persons fitness success is more than just a number and that fitness is a privilege and not a right. You are worth every effort!
"I am grateful to have been referred to Judy. The referral was after years of compensating for pain and limitations from a shoulder injury and not participating in activities that I would otherwise choose to do. My hope was for Judy to assist me to increase my mobility and strength and to design an exercise program for me to do at home. Most important was for Judy to work with me to feel competent to do it! The good news is that in four months we did just that while significantly increasing my range of motion, building my strength, and reducing my pain. I was very impressed with the technical knowledge, expertise, and professionalism that Judy brought to my sessions. She researched options for me and we tried many variations to see what I could do both in JD's gym and with my equipment at home."
"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."
