Train Smart with Purpose
Julie’s training philosophy is to train smart with purpose. Julie offers training plans for a single event, a season, recovering from injury, or building fitness for life. She uses performance data to create training plans incorporating the elements of strength, mobility, activation, endurance, and recovery.
Julie offers a suite of services to maximize performance and minimize injury, including Gait Analysis, Bike Fit, Metabolic, Lactate, and VO2Max testing. These services are offered in partnership with the Kaiser Sports Endurance Lab.
The benefit? Improved performance, lower injury, and less burnout.
