Julie is a fitness fanatic. As a mother of four, she has spent countless hours in the gym, on the field, cheering from the sidelines and helping to coach and organize her children’s various sporting activities. After raising two Division-I rowers, her passion for the sport lead her to assume the position as coach at Three Rivers Rowing Association for the First Row Program.
Her lifelong passion for physical fitness lead her to find the benefit of Pilates for her own movement/fitness but also to maximize her rowers’ performance on the water. Julie has always had an appreciation for the balance of strength and flexibility. Julie pursued her interest in Pilates by becoming Peak Certified Level I, and is now working towards her level II certification, with the hopes of completing her Comprehensive Certification within the next few years. She supports her clients through their introduction to Pilates, and works to help each individual achieve their own personal fitness goals. Julie is the “Zen” of Clearly Pilates…. bringing a peaceful push to your progression!
