I am a 34 yr old busy Mom of two amazing children. My daughter, Braelynn is 3 and my son Glenn is 2. I am happily married to an amazing man who believes in me more than I believe in myself. I have had my NSCA-CSCS certification for over 10 years and I love being a personal trainer.
So far, I would say it has been finding my balance and not giving up on myself! I have had plenty of set backs since I started training again and it has taken me a lot longer to reach my goals (funny how having kids can do that. lol) but I STILL DID IT! I have competed in the past and I would love to compete again in the near future but I’m just taking it day by day and enjoying my accomplishments thus far.
I truly enjoy everything about it. I love that so many things are “fitness”…lifting heavy, finishing your 25 min HIIT training and wanting to puke, feeling so accomplished after food prep Sundays, the feeling you get after pushing through those last 2 reps when you didn’t think you could finish even 1, looking at yourself in the mirror and being amazed that you have been able to change your WHOLE body, inside and out. I love it all. Fitness has been such a huge part of my life but it has never been more important than it is now. I want my babies to watch and learn.
I would love to get back up on stage again….sooner than later hopefully. My long term goal is to just maintain this happy, healthy lifestyle and to continue to challenge myself and my physique.
Wanting to be a good role model for my babies, wanting to inspire my clients, and wanting to always feel this confident about myself as it is a hard thing to find once you have lost it. 🙂
Where do I begin? She is amazing. She has challenged me, inspired me, and motivated me for so many years. She has never given up on me and seems to know just when I need to hear “You CAN do this”. She listens to you and your goals and creates a plan specifically for you. She genuinely cares about each and every one of her clients and will support you through the entire process. Like I said…she’s amazing.
If you are on the fence about training with Julie….DO IT! I have been working with her since ’08 and she has yet to disappoint. You don’t have to compete to get these awesome results. She wants you to be the best you that you can be and more importantly, she can make it happen. Plus you will get to meet so many amazing women throughout the process…it is so worth it!! DO IT!
