Judy Cocke   

GretchenJudy Cocke received her Comprehensive Teacher Training Certificate from Body Arts and Science International (BASI Pilates) in 2006. She also has specialized training from The Pink Ribbon Program, Pilates Buff for Bones, is a MELT Hand & Foot Instructor, an AFFA Group Fitness Instructor, and has been a PMA Certified Pilates Instructor since 2010.

Judy was introduced to Pilates in 2004, where a long-term back injury, & subsequent knee injuries from league tennis caused issues preventing her from exercising on a regular basis. When she tried Pilates as a gentle form of movement she felt that the physical and mental benefits of Pilates were unbelievable.

After practicing Pilates for two years, Judy decided to get her teaching certification so that she could help others discover the many perks of consistent Pilates practice.

Judy has a deep appreciation for the health and strength benefits afforded by Pilates. She considers herself neither a dancer nor a jock, and wants the average person to know that it is never too late to start on the road to health and well being. "If I can do this, with dedication so can you!"

When Judy is not working, studying, or taking classes, she enjoys, spending time with family, friends, hiking, camping, and travel.
