I love feeling strong and fit and I can thank Julie for my fitness condition today. I just loved working with her and depended on her encouragement and accountability to create my exercise habit. Julie gave me a balanced routine, made sure I was doing all of the exercises I needed to do to work my entire body, made sure I did my exercises properly so I wouldn't get injured and she pushed me to do more than my mind said I could do. I would recommend Julie to anyone who is just starting to workout and has had a hard time making a commitment to themselves as well as to the seasoned athlete looking to take their fitness to a new level. It is really hard to believe we can change our way of doing things, but I am living proof that you can transform yourself regardless of age or physical condition.

I’d always been a little intimidated by gyms and working out, but I knew I needed to get myself in better shape to keep up with my two small children and improve my health. Julie was approachable, knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person. Since working with Julie, I’ve gotten stronger and have increased my stamina. She’s taught me corrective exercises to help heal a foot injury. She’s also worked with me to try and improve my eating habits (still a work in progress).
Julie is an experienced trainer. Her use of different equipment and exercises keep your workouts interesting. She’s a motivator and will support you to reach your goals. Most of all Julie is a real person. I enjoy and even look forward to my training sessions with her each week. She makes me sweat, but I get to laugh while I’m doing it. If you’re not sure about working with a trainer, give Julie a try. She’s not your typical trainer and really cares about YOU and your health!

I've been wanting to start a program for quite some time. In my 20's I had a trainer and liked how I looked and felt. Nearly 15 years later, a marriage and two kids I wanted to get into shape, keep up with my active kids and be there for them as I get older. First, having a trainer is great! They hold you accountable and push when you wouldn’t push yourself training alone. A trainer makes sure you're posture is right and that you're using the correct muscles (otherwise you may not be getting the greatest benefit from your workouts).
Working with Julie, I feel as though I have a lot more energy. I no longer have a soda in the afternoon to keep my energy level up. I also notice that I have better posture. Prior to training with Julie I had a hard time sitting up straight and often slouched. Even if I tried to sit up straighter, after a minute or two my core would be tired and I would be back to slouching once again. My core is much stronger now and I don't have that problem anymore. My stamina playing soccer and hockey has increased, and I’m now able able to play back-to-back games. I'm also more confident to wear fitted clothes. Julie is great! She is able to assess the best exercises based on her client’s needs and she is very easy to work with.
If you’re considering personal training, trust! If you're on the fence then I would recommend to give Julie a try and you will see.
