Hello I'm Julie!

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 PRO-HAB (prevention of rehabilitation) and my own unique approaches to improving strength, flexibility, mobility, endurance, balance and overall fitness and on providing customized hormone-based fitness and lifestyle programs for women entering and/or in perimenopause.

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, splits 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 ACTIVE AGING ON CTV 

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.

OKOTOKS ONLINE/EAGLE 100.9 FM

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.

ON GLOBAL NEWS
CALGARY

This was one of the most thrilling moments and the first press I did for my work supporting Pro (not anti) aging for women over 40.
