It's Never Too Late to Achieve a New Goal - YMCA of Southwestern Indiana

It’s Never Too Late to Achieve a New Goal

Judy Burden feels healthier now at 78 than she did 20 years ago. Judy has been a member of the YMCA for ten years and for the past three years she has worked with a personal trainer three days a week. In that time Judy has lost 115 pounds. This lifestyle change not only boosted her confidence as her clothes size began to shrink but it has also eliminated her knee pain and provides her with the opportunity to babysit for her great granddaughter. She attributes her ability to lift and care for the 35lb toddler to her exercise regimen at the YMCA.

Judy currently trains with Ryan Howe at the Dunigan Family YMCA. Ryan is an Indiana native and traveled the world through professional wrestling, modeling, and music. He’s been an Ohio Valley Wrestling and International Superstar, 2x World Heavyweight Champion, reality TV personality, former WWE “Tough Enough” and final TNA “Gut Check” contestant. He is a Certified Personal Trainer (ACE) with broad experience in strength, endurance, toning, weight loss, and nutrition. “The biggest reward is using the knowledge I’ve gained through these unique life experiences and hard work to help others. There is no comparable feeling to seeing an individual make progress and achieve the success they deserve in the gym, and life.”
