JulieRead_alteredWelcome! I’m Julie, a Certified Personal Trainer and Licensed Massage Therapist.

I’ve been interested in wellness for a long time – I started gymnastics when I was a kid and haven’t stopped moving since. I’ve done several types of workouts over the past 27 years – everything from gymnastics to running, hammer throwing, CrossFit, and weight lifting. In between those I’ve also swam and taken on a 350 mile bike ride with my Dad and sister.

A few years ago I was looking for a change from the finance world so, I went to massage school. On the first day of school I was told that our lives would never look the same. Wow, my teacher was right. A year and a half later I moved on from my job in finance and started a business helping people to make the most of their body. Waking up and feeling so ready to take on the world makes me want to tell as many people as I can that those feelings come from small and consistent changes.

When I’m not working, taking copious amount of continuing education classes, or at the gym, I’m either cooking new meals at home with my husband, planning our next trip, or exploring all of what Philadelphia has to offer.
