Julie

Owner & Lead Instructor

I grew up without a movement habit. No sports. No intentional exercise. I do recall my mom going to jazzercise a few times, but I also remember a lot of calorie restricting as she did her best to manage the extra pounds many of the women in my family carry.

 

I was in college before it occurred to me to move my body intentionally for the sake of good health. I started with Cindy Crawford and Cher on VHS. It was awkward at first, but I soon realized I enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed combining exercise with great music because it spoke to the aspiring dancer in me. I soon moved out of my living room and into group fitness and yoga classes where I could also enjoy the shared energy, community, and the extra motivation of a live instructor.

 

My favorite thing about this healthy habit was feeling strong. I impressed more than one boyfriend with my ability to move a heavy piece of furniture by myself. I liked being able to do most of want I wanted to do when I wanted to do it.

 

I discovered early on that an instructor could have a huge impact on my motivation and commitment. Through hundreds of hours of training and more than a decade of leading classes, I am so happy to be one of those instructors here to guide and encourage you.

 

My guiding principle is to deliver the classes I’d want to take - carefully planned, set to fun music, with lots of variety of movement. I am passionate about making fitness not something that we have to do but something that we WANT to do. Together we can all look and feel our best and do everything that we want to do whenever we want to do it.
