Julia has been working in the fitness industry for 7 years, and fell in love with the aerial arts at age sixteen. By sharing her own fitness journey, she enjoys connecting with clients and building relationships to reach goals.

The first time Julia walked into Ninja Park, "it felt like Disney World." She enjoys sharing her passion for alternative fitness and embraces the Ninja Park way of "overcoming physical and mental obstacles through fun, functional fitness."

There’s nothing more empowering than defying gravity. I get to teach people how to fly!
— Julia Shuster, Aerialist and Coach

Julia's training style has always been about balance. Julia graduated cum laude with her Bachelor's in Health and Wellness at UNM. She chose this course of study because she believes health is more than the gym or a diet. A full, meaningful, and truly healthy life balances physical health with mental, spiritual, social, financial, etc. It is important for her clients to find satisfaction and joy in their training. She is passionate about helping people build high self-esteem, positive body image, and surprising themselves with how capable they are.

Julia's particularly enjoys teaching the aerial arts, and brings silks instruction to Ninja Park with her Aerial Prep and Conditioning class on Saturdays.

Julia's positive energy and relentless encouragement comfort anyone at any fitness level looking to conquer mental and physical obstacles through fun, functional fitness.

Julia empowers people to live limitless.
