    My son is a high school basketball player, and he has struggled with muscle stiffness, flexibility and balance issues. Julie started performing "MAT" on him about 4 months ago, and his speed, quickness and agility on the court has improved tremendously. I'd highly recommend "MAT" for athletes dealing with similiar issues. IT WORKS!!!!!!

    I have been working with Julie for the past few months. Her positive attitude has helped me stay motivated and for the first time in my life I am losing weight the correct way so it doesn't seem like torture. She has taught me a ton about food and nutrition and how to work out effectively and efficiently to get the best results.

    Julie is the perfect balance of highly informed, focused coach and compassionate mentor. I learned so much from Julie on so many levels. Always encouraging, respectful, and positive, always committed, she meets you where you are and helps you grow from there. There's no one I'd rather work with than Julie.

    Julie trained me for several months and I not only lost weight but learned things about food and nutrition that will stay with me forever. Julie is passionate and incredibly committed to what she does and who she is as a person. It was tough work but I felt empowered and consistently supported. Her wealth of knowledge about the body and fitness is unlimited. You will not be the same after working with her. Candy Crawford

    I have worked with Julie many times in the past ten years. She was my personal trainer and helped me attain my goals for 5k's, triathlons, and masters swimming. As a MAT specialist, she is great. She is the perfect combination of motivator and realist. I highly recommend her.
