Hi! My name is Julia and I’m a 30-something Paraguayan-born, New Jersey girl, who’s also a first-time mom to a handsome little boy…kudos if you know where Paraguay is! My passion for fitness started when I was 15 years old and joined my local YMCA to learn how to properly strength train. Although I briefly joined my high school track team my junior year, I consider myself a late-bloomer as an athlete. My first coaching experience was while attending college, where I became a volunteer body sculpting trainer for a semester of my sophomore year. I’m now a CrossFit Level 1 coach at my gym and coach on Saturday mornings.
My other passion is running! To date, I have completed 9 half-marathons and 2 marathons, including Philadelphia and New York. I’ve lost track of the shorter races I’ve done in the past few years. Combining endurance running and CrossFit WODs has helped me obtain many PRs as well as age group awards over the past 2 years.
I recently programmed and coached my first “Running Clinic” at my CrossFit box and it was a success. It was an amazing feeling helping my fellow WODers accomplish their goal of completing their first 5K.
A business girl at heart, I recently decided to start a little side business with Rodan + Fields skincare. The highly successful line previously sold in high-end department stores is now a social commerce brand that is currently amongst the top 5 premium skincare brands.
