"I started Julie's program when I was going through a hard time and knew I wanted to start taking better care of myself and creating healthier habits. When we first set my initial goals, I remember thinking they would be so hard to achieve. Now, however, week after week I am hitting my goals and meeting my expectations with ease because my goals have become habits. I am thankful to Julie for keeping me accountable during this process. I had it in me all along, I just needed the extra push. I wouldn't have gotten this far without Julie by my side... and she keeps it fun and positive!"
"I’ve known Julie for a couple of years as a motivating spin instructor and then I started following her on Instagram and her blog because I felt like I could totally relate to her experiences with exercise and food. When I found out that she became a certified health coach, there was no question in my mind that I had to sign up for a discovery session, and then her 12 week program.
I was just plain tired of dieting. It was exhausting and frustrating. What I’m finding with her health coaching program is it’s NOT just another diet, it’s about truly loving your body and what you as a person are truly capable of accomplishing. I’ve just completed my 8th coaching session, and I am amazed at what I have been able to accomplish and how my thoughts about how I look at food have truly shifted in a positive way. I love the fact that Julie holds me accountable with my action steps and that she doesn’t hold back sharing her own personal experiences with me."
"In just a few months, Julie's health coaching principles have invaded every part of my life. I thought my food and body complexes were isolated - turns out, health coaching has led me to question who I am as a person and what I truly value.
Julie's one-on-one coaching sessions really are personalized - everything we talk about is relevant to me and what I'm working through that given day. She encourages me to dive deeper into my own beliefs and emotions while validating my feelings and doubts. She is my toughest challenger and biggest cheerleader all at once."
"Julie has helped me believe the truth - that I am beautifully enough for myself and everyone around me. Not only am I enough, but that I deserve my own time and energy. Having someone hold you accountable for your HAPPINESS and HEALTH and not superficial things that the world tells you you need to be is incredibly empowering.
I’ve learned to train my mind to value what I have and listen to my body, because if there’s one thing you will learn from Julie it’s that your body is smart. What made Julie’s program work for me is that she helps you completely without judgement. When life gets busy or I don’t meet a goal for the week we just get curious about it - there are no faults or consequences. Health coaching with Julie is an all encompassing wellness adventure that builds lifelong healthy habits, not quick fixes that are unsustainable."
“During my first session I remember saying, “I can’t see myself being able to do this in this amount of time. There’s no way!” BUT, the way Julie helps you challenge your negative beliefs and feelings in order to break down the barriers keeping you from moving forward is incredible. I was stuck in a cycle of self hate, failure and defeat, feeling that I would never be “good enough.”
Learning how to be kind and compassionate to yourself is hard, but what I’ve learned is that it is possible! I never thought in my wildest imagination that I’d have the ability to be this completely committed and present in the journey to loving myself and my body... but it’s amazing how much progress can come through vulnerability. I’ve shifted my mentality from “I have to/can’t eat X” or “I need to lose this much weight to be size X,” to honoring my body for what it is - strong, capable and, most importantly, mine to love and cherish. ”
I met Julie a couple of years ago when I started taking classes at Cycle614. Immediately I kept coming back because of her energy and ability to help me push myself harder each time. She also pointed out that everyone’s experiences are different, so you cannot compare yourself to the person next to you. This is how I came to join Julie’s 90-day program.
While for the most part, I thought I ate well and tried to exercise, I never really loved my body. In just 3 short months I had learned so much, and came further than I ever anticipated. In the beginning I was super impatient because I wanted to move faster and get results, but Julie taught me that you must take your time and make gradual changes. Because when you do that, you will form habits, break down your blockers and truly change your perspective. Now I am able to identify foods that fuel my energy, workouts I am ACTUALLY willing to get up at 6am for (as a non-morning person), and she helped me break down my ‘failure’ fear so I could sign up for my first Tri-Fit triatholn! The most important thing I took out of this experience is I taught myself that I must love myself first, regardless of judgement.
