“I can guarantee you most of my 50 year old friends can’t say they swing from monkey bars or can do a kipping pull up.” says Decembers Athlete of the Month at SICFIT Scottsdale Judy Leinweber. A true veteran in the FUNctional FITness world. Judy has improved her overall health and FITness since joining in 2011. Long time family friend and even more seasoned student Deric Andre is the reason why Judy joined SICFIT. “After much hounding I finally decided to take my first class at North-site park, I still remember Coach Jenn D. who is so motivating and inspiring in my head telling me I can do it and not to stop.” When you see Judy in class next week, Give her and Deric a high “5” and say thank you for leading the way! Check out Judy’s interview on how she got started below.
How has training at SICFIT improved your overall health and FITness?
I had been working out with a personal trainer for almost five years prior to joining and never felt the way I do today about fitness. SICFIT has allowed me to progress from life, fitness and now sport. I am challenged emotionally, physically and mentally every class I take at SICFIT Scottsdale. I truly believe it’s made me a stronger person in all three.
What lessons have you learned about diet and exercise that you can teach your family?
I honestly am convinced that incorporating fitness and exercise into your daily routine makes a huge difference in a persons life. You don’t have to be a size two or focus on what you weigh, just be happy and healthy. I hope that I have influenced that in my daughter Morgan. Quit the awesome kid if I don’t say so myself!
What made you decide to enter the SICEST of the SOUTHWEST FITness race?
I turn 50 in April of next year. I wanted to do something that I had never done before and step completely out of my box. For me that was the Sicest of the Southwest III. It was a great experience with great people!
SICFIT Scottsdale is the place for me! Thank you to everyone for making it such a family, friendly environment!
