About Julie HODGE
I believe that true fitness begins as an inside job and I've been blessed to have spent 30 years now as a certified personal training in the health and fitness business, supporting women of all ages, shapes, sizes, fitness abilities and backgrounds move better, feel better and live better.
I cultivated a love of form and movement from a young age; influenced by the work of Joseph Pilates and a little known body transformer named Callan Pinkney.
My focus is on injury prevention, rehabilitation and more gentle approaches to improving strength, flexibility, mobility, endurance, balance and overall fitness.
My passion is to do what I love and help others realize their inner athlete, their inner strength and their inner goddess... which in turn results into a stronger physical body.
I'm an almost 50 year old mom of an active, incredible daughter and hope to continue doing cartwheels, heavy squats, push ups and handstands well into my 60's and 70's!

CANADA'S TOP FITNESS TRAINER
It was the honour of a lifetime to have been nominated and chosen as one of Canada's Top 10 Fitness Trainers of 2020. A culmination of 29 years as I have followed this magazine since it's inception.
TALKING PRO AGING ON CTV NEWS
In 2018 I launched Pro Aging programs for women who wanted support on all things getting better with age. I apply all these concepts in my personal training journeys with clients as well.

There's nothing like being featured in your own town and I was so thrilled to have received the support and interest of Okotoks local media on my efforts towards Pro Aging for women over 40.
