I first contacted Coach Cane in November 2017 and immediately started working with him towards prepping for a 2018 physique competition. Right off the bat I had a personal connection with him and I felt like I could see tremendous success working under his guidance. Since then I have went through two knee surgeries during our prep. Coach Cane helped me overcome those hurdles with minimal setbacks. The knowledge, patience, attention to detail, and motivation he gives is absolutely the best. My strength and size have increased dramatically and I've seen my confidence improve as well. The atmosphere of the gym is everything a bodybuilder visions to be a part of. I would recommend anyone who wants to get in shape or work towards competing on stage to check out AZ Bodybuilding.

I have always considered myself a athlete and person that is in great physical shape. That picture of myself changed once I met Coach Ty Cane. From the very first training session I knew that I was on my way to a physical transformation. Not only because of the new and different techniques of how to workout, but as well as his wealth of knowledge about nutrition that truly made my transformation complete. Coach gives each of his clients individualized and personalized attention. He truly wants the best for his clients. I believe that is what sets him apart from other trainers, he cares about getting the results you want to achieve. By the way with his contest prep guidance I place top 5 in two categories in my first ever Bikini Competition. Highly Recommended!! *

Definitely the best experience I've had with personal training since starting my bodybuilding journey. I work personally with Coach Shanita Patterson for bikini competitions and prepping, and she's not only a positive and upbeat coach, but there for you mentally as well. Competing and dieting can be a struggle and test of willpower, and very hard to do on one's own, but with coach Shanita I had no stress about my diet and about stepping on stage for the first time. She went above and beyond for me at my first show and supported me the whole way through, and did the same for her other clients as well! AZ Bodybuilding is truly a one-on-one genuine place for bodybuilding and personal training and I would recommend their services to anyone looking to get in shape or get into the sport of bodybuilding.

I found AZ Bodybuilding on Instagram and reached out right away to start my first contest prep training. I currently train with Coach Shanita and she is amazing! Her training style is fun and most important it's effective. Staying on track and following her plan will get you winning results from what I've seen. Is it easy? NO! Is it and will it be worth it? YShe is great at what she does and will check in with you to see if it's challenging or struggling. Having her as my mentor through this process fabulous and glad I decided to go with AZ Bodybuilding. Even if I decided later after my show to not do competitions anymore it is still a great place to do personal training with Trainer Shanita Patterson and Owner Coach Ty.

Coach Ty is a true trainer and mentor. After having several personal trainers, I have finally found my last! Every workout leaves me knowing I pushed myself harder and harder and Coach Ty will not settle for less. Beyond being a great coach and trainer, his mentoring keeps me motivated and my drive high! My results in a short time make me more and more excited to see how I look come competition time next year! Coach's knowledge for diet/nutrition, training modalities, and contest prep is beyond excellent and worth every penny and time spent in the gym! I cannot say enough great things about Coach as a person and trainer nor the professionalism of AZBB.


This place is super dope! I started out at about 245lbs and 15% body fat when I first joined Team AZ Bodybuilding. Coach Ty was able to cut me down to 217lbs and 4% body fat in a little over 1 MONTH!!!! Now I'm climbing back up in weight while maintaining a low body fat percentage, since I'm getting ready for my first show this November! I was kinda used to doing my own thing at first, but sit back, take a deep breath, and let coach guide you to the best physique of your life!! He knows what he's doing, and the environment is very relaxing!
