Coach Julie originally joined Maryland Strength and Fitness as a client to lose weight and gain strength. After making some major lifestyle changes, she wanted to help others in achieving their health and fitness goals so she joined the MSF team.
She has been overweight or obese her entire life, has tried anything and everything to lose weight. It wasn’t until she truly embraced more sustainable changes that she saw lasting results! To date she has lost over 100 pounds and has discovered a passion for weight training and preparing healthy delicious food. Her greatest desire is to help other people really change their lives for good! She also truly believes in empowering women through strength training.
