The Over 60 Hard Charger Who Got Her Cake & Weight Loss Too!


Judy  dropped 13.5′ and 10 pounds during our Total Body Transformation Challenge in January, has continued on for a total of 15 pounds and 21.5′ while most people have quit  and is still going strong with our Personal Trainers in St Petersburg !

Judy is a personal trainer’s dream client. She started with us back in 1996 as a personal training client and has become  one of the most awesome  group fitness training members we’ve had since the launch of  Fitness St Pete I Tierra Verde Fitness last year !


She is committed and walks the talk as she schedules appointments and commitments around her group training schedule.  If she can’t make her normal group on St Pete Beach, she hops in the car and comes to our North Shore Location.  Not many things will keep Judy from her workouts.

I will let you hear the rest from Judy herself:

How has your fitness level/health improved since becoming a Fitness St Pete Group Fitness Training Member? I have been with Dianne for 20 years so the results have differed based on the point in my life. Flexibility, energy and ability to do whatever I want—walking, travel, etc.

What  are the two or three biggest benefits  you’ve experienced since becoming a group fitness training member?
It’s good to have a group with same goals and issues. I tend to be a loner so I don’t feel as strongly that I have to be accountable to myself, although I’ve gotten better at that too. The group and accountability has helped.

Please describe how your Fitness St Pete Group Fitness program has specifically helped you achieve success with your fitness level, fitness goals or health : I think it’s extremely important as we age to not give in to the temptation to overindulge one’s self. The fact that we can “eat cake” without feeling like a cheat helps—a plan with balance provides the chance to not feel deprived, although I haven’t run into any Girl Scouts with cookies yet this year! At least I know my triggers.


What kinds of results have you achieved so far? Since I was already committed to fitness, it’s finding the food balance and realizing I am not really hungry at times. I remember reading that after eating you should wait 20 minutes to let your stomach tell your brain you’ve eaten enough, but it never seemed to work for me, so I have worked on making my brain take charge.

Raving Fans

"I didn’t think this weight loss program would be so easy! I dropped 20 pounds eating deliscious foods and working out 3X/week. I know I keep saying that but it’s true! At 63 years old I thought I’d never look and feel this good again! Seriously, I feel like 40 now" - Pattie A, Tierra Verde, Fl

"As a 10X full Ironman finisher, I foolishly came in thinking it would be easy given my background and boy was I wrong. Every time you think you’re getting the hang of it Dianne adds an extra twist to increase the difficulty . I lost 10 lbs and my strength increased." - Tony S , St Pete. Fl

"I had my doubts when I came in on the 14 day rapid results program, however I have become a true believer in the program. In 2 weeks, I had already begun seeing results, both physically and mentally. I feel better, make healthier food choices (most of the time), and am excited for every workout. I thoroughly enjoy the group setting and I appreciate the opportunity to develop new friendships with the other group members!" - Caren, St Pete

"After interviewing a number of different trainers, I met Dianne. My initial impression was that she was knowledgeable in her field and extremely enthusiastic. Being a physician, it was very important that I work with a trainer that had a solid understanding of the science behind the exercises, understood the importance of a multifaceted approach to to a wellness a lifestyle, including not only the physical exercise regimen but also the n nutritional and psychological aspects of their client in order to help them achieve a sustainable, healthy lifestyle for the long haul The bottom line is this: If you a are serious and committed to getting yourself in shape and developing a healthy a and sustainable nutrition and fitness program, then Custom Bodies is where you need to go….It’s as simple as that." - Dr. Michael Sprintz
