Since 2005, her mission has been helping men and women around the world lose weight, build muscle, and achieve better health.

Favourite way to sweat

Julie has loved lifting weights since she was 17, but preceding that was her passion for rollerblading. For Julie, tanning and sweating in the sunshine is the best feeling. Julie has taken her blades to California, Mexico, Montréal and more, adding that it makes fitness fun and keeps her abs tight every summer.

Favourite way to recover post-workout

Julie enjoys spending 10 to 15 minutes of deep stretching to maintain mobility after her weight training sessions, and always finishes with a Kaizen Naturals smoothie.

Greatest accomplishment

Julie's competitive fitness career was 12 consecutive years long, the majority in the professional league, including two International Pro Championship title wins. But she is truly proud to have helped thousands of people all around the world through her online coaching: Sweat with Julie / Real Wealth Health Inc.

Her greatest gift has been raising her kind (and very active) daughter, Amelia.
