“Julia is great. She's created a community of inspiring women - I wonder if these ladies know how much strength they give me to fly... Normally I don't like my body in pictures but in the last few months I am finding secrets, and curves, and things to love about me... I have that glow, that confidence, and strength aerial has given me... I look healthy." - Sara M


“Julia has been the greatest trainer I've had the honor working with for a couple years now. She always teaches with care and makes you feel wanted in the community. Weight and dieting have always been a struggle for me but Julia has helped me to learn to love myself and eat that ice cream that has been all alone in the freezer while still being healthy. She's an inspiring woman and I love going to her classes!” - Audra H


“Julia pushed me to #livelimitless and motivated me to begin a project I was afraid to work on, that project being me. Thank you guys so much!! I definitely am closer to becoming a true warrior “ - Cecilia


“Unlike the endless dread of a treadmill, or the cardio-less lifting routine with a 4,000 calorie diet, Julia and Ninja Park offer something truly unique. It comes from the obstacles. When you finally accomplish an obstacle, it isn't like losing a pound or lifting 5 more. It is far, far more rewarding than that, and you begin to love yourself and have confidence in yourself in a way that other workouts won't give you. This program is a cure for vanity, and a breeding ground for self-love. If you don't believe me, look at the weight scale Julia made in the bathroom, and the comments tagged all over it. When you come here and get fully immersed, your interests in changing the way you look blur. Then, one day you look in the mirror and realize that you are happy, you are confident, and that you just so happen to also look like a ninja." - River L.


“Julia makes the gym not just a place for fitness and perfect people but a place that focuses on every aspect of your life and how to make you stronger.” - Vianey S.


“A lot of people say ‘I probably need to be fit before I can do something like this.’ False. Julia is awesome at explaining how to do the obstacles safely, offer progressions for different levels of experience, and introduce exercises that help to condition or train for the obstacles. But, really, only getting in there and doing it will prepare you to do it. So get in there and get started. Also, you should willingly give your money to a trainer that allows you to bring your baby and keep him with you in a huge stroller, and roll him around from spot to spot when you can’t leave him home with dad. While not an ideal workout situation, how many places can you think of where this allowed and no one ever makes you feel like a burden? If you need the blessing of being able to work out and take care of yourself while still functioning as a parent, Julia is your kind of coach. Everything. Seriously. Julia strives to help you become your best self.” - Tonya B.


“Julia is awesome she has helped someone I know get tons more confident and have shown her that she can do anything she wants. From a 3rd person view I have seen this program change her life.” - Gabe


“Julia helped me a lot to conquer my fears on the obstacles and showed me how strong I really am and to never give up on things and to keep going if it gets hard and working on loving myself for who I really am. Thanks for showing me to become a warrior. I am so proud of myself for finishing this program!” - Shylis

Life coaching is like personal training except the focus expands beyond fitness goals into the rest of your life. A life coach is a professional, objective adviser that supports you to achieve ANY goal, many time acting as a resource center helping you make the most . Life coaches keeps you on track to achieve dreams in any area of your life. Sessions with Julia investigate some the following areas to result in a FULFILLED AND JOYFUL LIFE:

  • Self-Esteem and Confidence

  • Career/Financial Health

  • Fitness and your Relationship with Exercise

  • Nutrition and your Relationship with Food

  • Spirituality and Living with Purpose

  • Social Health and Relationships

  • Mental Health

  • Time Management

  • Stress Management

  • Finding Joy

The role of the Life Coach is to act as the ultimate accountability buddy, and a second brain to brainstorm goals and strategies. They are an objective resource that forces you to spend dedicated time each week devoted to YOU. Yes, anyone can commit to examining their goals for one hour a week, but how many are successful at this by themselves? That’s where I come in.

I am happy to answer any questions about the amazing results of life coaching, and what you can expect in your personalized program.
