Julie’s passion for fitness started in 1992 when she began teaching group fitness classes. She became a Certified Personal Trainer in 2001 because she wanted to be instrumental in improving the quality of life in others. She continued her education by attending national conferences and workshops where she was inspired to be the best that she could be by well-educated fitness professionals. She has since acquired several additional certificates in TRX, BOSU and Body Bar training, plus certifications in Cycling and Kickboxing, in addition to becoming a Nutritional Specialist through Tufts University. Her training philosophy consists of educating clients on the benefits and application of strength and functional training, cardiovascular conditioning, nutrition and flexibility to achieve total body wellness.
