The Latest



CLIENTS “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.”

CLIENTS “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.”

CLIENTS “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”

CLIENTS “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.”

Age: 37 | Denver, CO


CLIENTS “I was looking for someone who could help tailor a training plan and provide coaching based on my strength and weaknesses and not just a cookie-cutter, one size fits all model. Julie is very good about checking in to see how the plan is working out as you work towards a specific goal. The plans are dynamic as she will modify the plan based on feedback, and external circumstances such as sickness, and unexpected work conflicts. In the end, her approach gives a level of consistency that over time has helped me meet my athletic goals.”

CLIENTS “My main goal this upcoming season is to repeat as the USA Cycling National Enduro Champion. I have used Trainer Road in the past, which has been helpful, but I feel like it was easy for me to skip a workout or sometimes I would wonder if I was even working on the right things. Enduro is a multifaceted sport with a that combines both strength and conditioning. With Julie, I feel like she gives me a balanced plan that addresses both the strength and conditioning for me to be at the top of my game.”

CLIENTS “I chose to work with Julie because my last coach didn’t have the time necessary to create a training plan each week that is carefully tailored to my needs. Before committing to work with Julie, I talked to multiple coaches to find the right fit, and after those conversations, choosing to work with Julie was a no brainer!”
