Hello, I'm Georjia Motta fitness professional and owner of Fit It In Fitness.
I've worked in the fitness/wellness industry for approximately 30 years.
I am grateful in having maintained a successful active career as a fitness professional. I'm an American Council On Exercise (ACE) Certified Medical Exercise Specialist & Personal Trainer, Registered Yoga Alliance Teacher, Stott based Pilates Instructor trained by Angela Sunberg of BodyScapes, and Master Reiki trained by Sunny Dawn Johnston. I use modalities from these areas of fitness and wellness to help clients prevent and manage disease, avoid, and safely work through injuries, improve overall physical wellness and function throughout all phases of medical interventions, athletic activities, and lifestyle transitions.
I've worked in the fitness/wellness industry since the early 80's. Daily I work with private individuals specializing to the senior population. I also work with groups, athletes, online clients, and the corporate office worker. My passion is offering effective movement techniques and strategies that fit into and with a client's every day environment, daily activities, and fitness athletic pursuits. In my 30 year career I've enjoyed teaching through cable TV, choreographed and instructed several videos, book collaborations, fitness equipment manuals/instructions, work with and at medical wellness facilities, colleges, offer lectures/ workshops, consulting, and volunteering.
Throughout this website you'll find my recommendations on not only fitness, but products and recommendations on wellness. beauty, and healthy home and garden ideas. I share these through my own experiences and that of family, friends, co-workers, and other industry professionals.
In 2005 I developed exercise software for the seated worker with the help of Micronet Technical Services-
Fit It In Fitness At The Desk Software- Copyright
"The creation of Fit It In Fitness At The Desk Software came about after one of my students was using post-it notes all over her office to remind herself to perform some of our class exercises. Wow, there has to be a more efficient and effective way of staying fit at the office. I often offer pamphlets and homework programs but that wasn't completely cutting it either.
Fit It In Fitness At The Desk Software with copyright was born shortly after and how the name Fit It In Fitness came about. I worked with a software designer (Micronet Technical Services) to develop a non intrusive pop-up program with a means to remind a PC desk worker to take mini exercise breaks throughout their day. The software integrates a choreographed four minute video geared to recover the posture of the seated worker.
I continue to encourage fitness with this same mindset- A simple, manageable, efficient, and effective means of staying fit and well, whether in the office or not.

Health and Wellness
Nutrition, and how it applies to our health has always been a strong interest of mine. After working several years with a green drink dietary supplement company, I co-developed Envygreens Green Drink with my long time boyfriend.
At the time I was also researching many ingredients that are typically contained as the main ingredients of the majority of marketed green drink super food formulas. There were some common ingredients, such as alfalfa and stimulant herbs that pose health issues for certain individuals and conditions. EnvyGreens was developed with the idea of supplying customers with a safe and healthy product. My son's used The Envygreens basic original proprietary formulation and created a USDA Certified Organic Super Foods Dietary Supplement called Rawrlife Superfoods. Like EnvyGreens they are pioneers in food products that avoid the use of alfalfa and stimulant botanicals.
Other interests and work
I've continued my cosmetology license since 1984 and briefly worked in the field with hair and skin. Although my fitness career has been my first love and kept me busy and fullfilled, I continue my interest in the beauty industry. I enjoy researching and sharing products and ingredient information that are most beneficial and safe as well as what to avoid. I also work closely with beauty industry professionals.
During the early 90's I also opened, owned and managed an Arizona state licensed care home. This is when my love for helping seniors through fitness began and where I continue to currently specialize.
I'm a proud mother of three grown children.Talented daughter Jessica is the oldest and works full time as a graphic designer specializing in branding www.jesmotta.com and part-time photographer. Jessica is a Dean's List graduate of Northern Arizona University and thyroid cancer survivor. Johnny, (John, Jr.) is a Professional Skateboarder, artist, studies holistic nutrition and is a co-business owner and manager of Rawrlife Superfoods with his brother Joey.
Joey is an organic gardener and at age 17 he was the youngest member of Arizona Rare Fruit Growers, Pro BMX Freestyle Cyclist and co-business owner of Rawrlife Superfoods. Joey is also landscape and nursery management certified. Presently he's also building a medicinal botanical and herb five acre training nursery for one of Arizona's leading Naturopathic physicians.

Georjia is my personal trainer, and has been since June, 2015. Of the seven personal trainers I've had over the past 21 years, she is the most knowledgeable, experienced and flexible trainer I have had. She adjusts our workouts to help me with any muscular or physical issues I may be having. When it was discovered that my knee pain called for a total knee replacement, her exercises provided me with additional muscular strength in the knee area so that, following my total knee replacement, the recovery time was very short-it even surprised my surgeon.
I have seen Georjia work in a classroom situation for chair Pilates; she watched over each class member of twenty or more and helped those having trouble with a specific exercise by modifying it so each member could benefit from the class.
Georjia is well-aware of the physical limitations of seniors citizens (of which I am one), and modifies standard exercises so we, too, can benefit from the exercise.
She always arrives early for our workouts. On the rare occasion when she had to cancel at the last minute she was quick to communicate that to me- I have never been inconvenienced by a late cancellation.
I could summarize by attesting to the facts that Georjia Motta is a superb personal trainer who is flexible, knowledgeable, pleasant,diligent, understanding, caring and analytical.

Thank you Georgia for helping our dad walk again before he passed. He was one year lying in bed even to eat his meals. In the year you spent with him you were accomplished at helping him to finally sit up, stand up and walk over to his chair to eat a meal. This meant the world to him and his pride.
Anyone who has the opportunity to be helped by you will benefit greatly.
Thank you sincerely,
In the few phone consults we had you really helped guide me in the right direction and give me the right tools which made it so much easier to have finally lost weight after my surgery and weight gain. I am using your simple exercise and diet suggestions and they are fitting into my work and family schedule. Thank you too for the right questions for my doctor. I have kept this weight off now for eight months and plan to keep on going. Glad you have enjoyed some of my healthy recipes too.
I consider working out with Georjia one of the best things that has ever happened to me! The results I have achieved in just a few months far exceed any level of fitness I received via gym work on my own. Her extensive knowledge of proper exercise technique, nutrition, and workout schedules to meet specific goals is limitless. She cares about me and shows it in a positive way with everything she does and says.
When Georjia calls to check on me my husband answers, he usually yells, “Mother’s on the phone!” I should be so lucky! She is my mentor, coach, friend, and, if I ever make it to the Hawaii ironman (my dream goal), my roommate.
I want to say how pleased I am in the Pilates program with Georjia Motta. She is an exceptional instructor and has the long-standing qualifications as a certified trainer. We should consider ourselves fortunate to have the benefit of her expertise.
I hope Georjia will continue helping us at Sun City West for Sun Health. Having a chronic back problem, it is very reassuring to feel so confident in a skilled person. I look forward to benefiting from her instruction when I return in December.
Thank you, have a great summer,
As a manager and trainer at Sun Health Corporation in Sun City, Arizona, I am thrilled to have Georjia as one of our trainers. Her rapport with clients and ability to keep clients motivated and challenged allows us to have a full personal training schedule, keeps us scrambling to create more training hours in our facility and helps recognize constant increase in revenue.
After having worked with Georjia for some time, Bob, a 93 year old client of Georjia's, has made huge gains in performing activities of daily living and reports feeling much better on a daily basis. Georjia's expertise has even helped this spry gentleman avoid surgery after a shoulder injury. Bob looks to Georjia for help in maintaining his health and his ability to live independently.
On occasion I have worked with several clients of Georjia's and have been impressed with the novelty of exercises she creates for clients and her ability to tailor exercise to our mostly senior, and often physically limited clientele. Georjia has a knack for knowing exactly how to help clients improve their health and quality of life as a trainer and in her classes.

We would like to send our deepest thank you for helping our mom Dorothy walk again before she passed. None of us or other therapists could work with her like you did. She really loved you too. Thank you for giving and showing her patience and dignity.
Mary M. and Dorothy G.
In my kickboxing class at Phoenix College I first learned how to wrap my hands and wrists the proper way so I would not injure myself. I learned how to punch, or in this case, how to jab, cross, hook, block, upper cut and the kicks. I especially loved using the pads and bags and a friend in class to be aware of my surroundings and how someone could come at you. It was a good work out for my upper and lower body. I especially like how Georjia let my friend and I Jacque have a little 2 against 1.
I have known Georjia for a number of years and several as my personal trainer and she has always been helpful, upbeat and knowledgable. She keeps me in a positive mood in all our workouts and knows when to push me and when to make me rest. She is willing to go the extra mile and keep me trying to achieve more. I'm training as a relay bicyclist and she has helped set my body and bike up as one making me more efficient in my biking.
Thank you for teaching me how to use all the of the exercise equipment and showing me all of the exercises. My favorite exercise was the trampoline and treadmill. I hope I see you again in the fall.
Jake G., Age 8
For the past three years, Georjia has been my Pilates instructor twice weekly. She is punctual, knowledgeable, innovative and helpful. She has the ability to make participants feel comfortable and capable. As a result, I rarely miss a class and the payoff is a significant positive change in my shape and flexibility.
Georjia, your Pilates class and your teaching has helped me feel stronger, more energetic and to have batter balance.
Also, last week I completed my annual general physical exam at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, and my doctor and I are very happy with the improved test results--which show a 9 point drop in my glucose level, a 24 point drop in my triglycerides, a 42 point drop in LDL cholesterol and an 18 point increase in my good HDL cholesterol!
And at age 72, I feel better in general.
Thank you Georjia.
Your Pilates class has helped me to become stronger in my abdomen and hips. From that I've started walking more and exercising with weights. My fibromyalgia improved and I am more active.
I have known georjia Motta for about 5 years and she has been my trainer and personal strength. She is a very reliable, supportive person who makes your weakness not seem so bad, she's a great inspiration to me.
Georjia Motta has provided Personal Training, Strength Training, Total Fitness and Pilates classes to our community members through Sun Health Community Education and Wellness Centers in Sun City and Sun City West.
Her expertise and professionalism has been evident with the number of return patrons and the fact that her exercise classes generally filled to capacity. She continuously receives the highest evaluations from our patrons.

Georjia thanks for being helpful and patient with me as a new student in your Pilates class. I really liked the balloon work we did. I've been teaching my husband that and it really works. Hope to see you in the fall.
At The Desk Software Testimonials
"If you want to feel refreshed and relieve tension and get energized use At The Desk Software" Mark Turner
I gave the At The Desk Software to one of my co-workers, she loves it and encourages her 2 assistants to do it with her.
A. Herman, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Since we started using the office stress software cd, our sales productivity has risen to new heights. For many of us stress is a big part of our lives and by utilizing the CD and implementing the breathing and stretching exercises a few times a day we all feel extremely refreshed which leads to better productivity. Health is a very important part of anyone's life and more employers should take notice for their own employees to help them get through the day more efficiently. This product is wonderful and I personally think every company out there should use it for better workforce productivity.

Since I have been using the fitness at the desk CD I have been more aware of my posture and breathing and it has even helped with my posture. My chiropractor thinks the exercise on the video will help me. I like the pop up because I forget to stay on track and it really has helped remind me.
This program is incredible. It is so simple and effective to use. I would recommend it to anyone who spends more than a few hours a day at a computer. My staff has increased their productivity by 20% by using this fun and motivating program. It has really helped with team building and the stretches are easy to perform. I have recommended this program to the rest of the Sales Mangers in our organization.
The office fitness exercise workshop was a big help. The exercises from that are easy to follow and I feel my back getting stronger. I also like the relaxing stretching exercises on the computer CD and the reminding pop up to encourage me not to forget to take a quick break for a few short minutes and move my body with the video. I also appreciate the calls from Georjia to keep me motivated. I've even started exercising at home.
Thanks very much,
I have been using Fit it in Fitness at my workstation for over 6 months. I find that it is a refreshing break from my work and the stress I feel in between my shoulder blades due to working at a computer 8 hours a day. I have set the reminder for every 2 hours. The exercises are easy to do and I actually look forward to the reminder popping up on my screen.
It takes less than 4 minutes to do and I have found that after those 4 minutes I feel refreshed and ready to work another few hours at my maximum energy level.
Ok, I wish I thought of this. I liked the other video with no sleeves, what can I say, I'm a guy. This is pretty motivating and that pop up gives me an excuse to check out the video and I've actually started doing the exercises too. They are quick to go through and it feels like they have been helping my tight and weak back. Hope to have you come back and do a workshop again.
