“My good friend Julia is someone I look up to for her perseverance and determination when it comes to health and physical fitness (I’m sure we all do!). As I continue on my journey to bring my post-2 kids body back to where I want it to be, I have tried and keep trying new ways to keep me engaged – whether it’s CrossFit, the Max Challenge, at home workouts, Pilates, or having Julia kick my butt!
Julia came to my house every Friday morning, before my kids or even husband woke up. I looked forward to that each week because I knew that I would be “set” for the weekend. Each Friday was a different workout and I was pretty sore the next 2 days – which is exactly what I wanted!
Between a balanced diet and workouts with Julia I continued to lose inches off my waist!
Thanks to an awesome trainer!”

“I have been training with Coach Julia for the past two years. She has trained me in both CrossFit and has served as my running coach. She is really fantastic. I am someone that likes a lot of feedback concerning different movements so I can do the workout as efficiently as possible as well as avoid injury. Coach Julia knows how to describe the movements pre-workout and assesses our movements throughout the workout to ensure maximum performance.
As a running coach, she developed a six week plan for beginners. We met weekly and had homework throughout the week. At the end of the six weeks I did something I never thought I would do, run a 5k. Not only did I run that one but Coach Julia made it so much fun that I ran two more that year! Now, I thoroughly enjoy running because of her training.
I played baseball for years and good coaches are hard to come by. Coach Julia has my total confidence because she pays attention to all aspects of our training. Whether she is working to make sure our burpees are done properly for efficiency or making sure our form is correct for deadlifts to prevent injury, Coach Julia is on it. In fact, when I first started CrossFit, she was a relatively new coach and she corrected my kettle bell swings to make sure I wasn’t going to get hurt AND do them better and faster for a more complete workout!!!
Having her coach me these past two years has led to an incredible boost in my health and fitness. Her cheerful personality and unique ability to push you to the max to get the most out of your workout has totally contributed to a huge transformation (I lost 65 lbs in a year). She is a superb coach and I have been blessed to have her in my corner pushing me to be the best I can be!”

“Julia is a super encouraging coach and very dedicated to making sure you reach your goals. We set a goal to run my first 5K and I could not have done it without her. Julia helped me learn how to pace myself, breathe correctly and how to run properly. I had such a positive and supportive experience with her running clinic and definitely encourage others to join!”-

“I really loved training with Julia!!! It was fantastic having her support- it’s priceless. The workouts were just right for me and she kept me very consistent. Also the nutritional guidance and the running tips were excellent. I’m so happy with the weight I lost (30 lbs) and how I feel now.”

“Julia’s Fastitinista FitCamp is amazing–fun, high energy, and super effective. She mixes her workouts up so you know you’re getting a full body workout. She also provides a lot of personalized attention and feedback. One of the best classes out there. I definitely recommend!”

“Julia has been my coach for the past 12 weeks, and I look forward to working out with her every week. She tailored an exercise plan to meet my fitness and running goals, and focused on strengthening my core. I feel my whole body getting stronger and I love it!
I wanted to get in shape doing exercises I could also do at home, but also learn how to run properly. I just finished my first 5k (42:40) and could not have done it without Julia’s expertise, encouragement, and inspiration. I see improvement in my daily activities too–bending, lifting, and squatting.
I just signed up for another 12 weeks with Julia to improve my endurance for my next 5k, and continue to focus on strength and core training. This is the best I have felt in years! I feel so good about myself and the progress I have made so far.”
