Fitness has always played an important part of Julie's life. She was born and raised in Ohio and grew up playing sports. After she graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University she started teaching fitness classes, mostly strength training and bootcamp style classes. She has always had passion for leading and motivating people to break past their perceived limits. After a few years she was looking for a change of pace with her workouts and thats when she found barre and spin. She found it to be the perfect balance of high intensity, full body workout and the party atmosphere is a definite plus! After her first class she was hooked. She recently moved back to Augusta and is excited to be back with her Oxygen family! She believes that having fun while getting a kick butt workout is what makes a class successful!
