“I have led a “training lifestyle” for many years where I am constantly planning and training for events.  I have worked with other coaches in the past. The most common problems that come up with coaches are training volumes and access/communication.  It is easy for a coach to boost your fitness with endless training hours. Unfortunately, this just sets a busy (time-crunched) athlete up for failure and can adversely affect their personal life.  This has never been a problem with Julie. We communicate well and I think she actually enjoys the challenge of squeezing quality training out of the hours I have to work with.”

“I had a fitness goal to qualify and race in the Leadville Trail 100 MTB. I have bilateral labral tears in my hips that have made it painful to do the volume necessary to ride 100 miles on a mountain bike. As part of my training plan, Julie gave me an exercise regimen that I do daily to strengthen and loosen up my hips. About six months into training with her, I am pain-free. It has been a pretty dramatic change for me.”

“For people like me, recreational racers with a full suite of adult responsibilities, I think having a coach is one of those easily justifiable luxuries. I work full time, my husband works full time and we have a school-aged child. Between all the decisions I make at work and home, it is simply a treat to not make a decision about my training other than to keep working with Julie”

“Before working with Julie I had never had a coach before and only used free online training plans. The combination of Julie’s years of experience and expertise has helped me take my fitness to the next level.”
