Becoming an NPC athlete!! 4-5 years ago I said I wanted to compete and look like the pros! I never thought I would have the guts to stand on a stage in a little bitty bikini!
Now I have people asking ME to help them to the same thing. It’s so surreal!

What’s changed the most for me is adding muscle to my body. I have always been about 10 pounds over my ideal weight, which is not much. I have been able to take away those 10 pounds of fat and more! The crazy thought is I weigh the same today as I did 5 years ago. The difference is how I look!! The added muscle minus the fat is amazing to me.
The stress relief associated with exercise. Also the extra mood pump when you accomplish a training goal is phenomenal!!
Learn different types of strength training, such as olympic style lifts, kettlebell strength training, and rope training. The more I learn the more balanced I become in my overall approach to fitness. This year it is my goal to compete as an NPC athlete on the National Level.
The energy and power being active gives me. A sharp mind also comes along when you exercise! It helps build drive and determination. Of course, the health benefits to your heart cannot be overlooked!
All of it!! Hiring Julie as a trainer was the best decision for my fitness goals I have ever made! Her support is incredible. She accepts your input and listens to what your needs are before she responds. That is a rare quality!! When she says she is a women’s fitness expert…She is! From what powers the mind, to the foods needed to power your body. She knows her craft!
We are our own worst enemy. Julie knows that. She can only help me if I reach out to her with issues. Whenever I have done that, she has been right there for me with answers or just a listening ear. There are no worst parts to working with her!
I am addicted to vanilla whey protein mixed to a pudding with almond butter and sliced strawberries!
Believe in yourself. You have to believe it first before you can see it!
