    In business every amazingly successful brand has been marketed through the 4 Ps. Julz Arney is an amazing fitness brand and accomplishes it through her 4 Ps.

    Julz is Personable – take one of her classes or her convention sessions and you’ll think that she’s chatting you up in your living room. Has the amazing ability to make you feel like you are the only one in the room.

    Julz is Prepared – if you ever see her handouts she makes sure that they are ready to use and always easy to understand. Her presentation and workout flow makes sense and that level of excellence comes with loads of preparation.

    Julz is Professional – one of the best in the industry! As a business woman she takes her work seriously and her work lightly. She is always on time, provides the best service to anyone that comes to her class or workshop and takes the work that she does very seriously. Julz’s quality of work if always outstanding and endlessly creative.

    Julz Arney is Passionate - take one of her classes and you will feel the contagious energy and life that pours out of her. She loves what she does and it shows.

    I met Julz back in 1994 at an IDEA convention after having talked to her on the phone. She was even more warm and personable in person and at the time rocked the house in the Expo Hall as one of the Culture Shock dancers. She has grown with the industry and continues to come up with amazing ideas and endlessly fun classes and workshops for everyone to enjoy!

    Julz Arney has been one of my mentors and friends in the fitness industry for years. Every year, I'm impressed by her captivating yet personable style as a presenter. And in one-on-one consultations, she always shares a slew of smart, current, and most of all, doable ideas. I very much value her opinion.
