Map Your Journey for how to stay
active, strong, able and well
Are you looking to boost your level of strength to enjoy 40+?
Are you looking for simple ways to be more consistent with your fitness routine at home?
Are you looking for a non-intimidating way to get started with strength training?
For Women over 40 who are tired of feeling weak, achy and stressed and want to get and stay active in life feeling strong, able and well.
If you are like most of my clients, chances are...
You are feeling weak so that even lifting groceries is hard;
You are feeling out of shape so that walking for a mile makes you feel tired;
You are “protecting” your back from spasming every time you bend over to put dishes away or do laundry;
You are feeling discouraged that you are not getting enough steps in a day because you are feeling low energy;
You are afraid to fall when you are going for a hike because you feel off balance;
You are feeling that your slouchy posture affects your confidence level;
You are avoiding heavy lifting due to a fear of peeing your pants;
You are intimidated by the gym environment and feeling discouraged not knowing where to start.
Can you relate?
Which is exactly why I created this step by step program with a lot of coaching support!

The Active8U Program is not for you
If you want to get ripped and bikini-ready. This program is not about how you look and especially not about losing weight to make you happy, strong and out of pain. It is about wellness, and giving your body the movement and strength it needs to work at its best.
If you expect fast fixes to your body issues. When we start moving and strengthening our body in an intentional way, your pains and aches get reduced and possibly eliminated. After all, we are designed to move!
If you anticipate intense and draining workouts that leave you exhausted and feeling twice your age!
This is not another cookie-cutter Women’s fitness program, and working with me is NOT all about burpees and high-intensity workouts. It is more about connecting with your body through movement, strength training and mindful practices so it becomes a lifestyle so that you feel strong, able and well over 40.

LET'S FACE IT
When life gets hard with kids, work and other adult responsibilities, it is easier just to give it up and stop setting goals for your feeling good as you are approaching 40+. Taking care of ourselves, especially as we age, is the least selfish thing we can do. Not only we will be able to keep up with children and grandchildren, we will retain our independence for much longer, which are gifts to ourselves and the people we love.

What is there to lose?
Julia is a Certified Holistic Fitness Coach, 500hr Yoga Instructor as well as a Core Exercise Specialist for pelvic floor health. She works primarily with middle-aged and older women. Julia was never an athlete. She discovered movement through yoga in her 30s feeling weak, tired and achy.
Later, she became more confident through strength training that she started in her 40s for the first time. Julia loves to help other women be the best version of themselves by teaching them how to be strong, moving well and developing a self-loving mindset . She is a proponent of strength training for life, rather than the quick-fix gimmicks. Her philosophy is to focus on strength rather than the scale, and the rest will fall into place.
“For me, feeling weak is much more dangerous than lifting weights. Love a feeling of I AM ABLE”.
One of the most rewarding parts of my job is witnessing my clients gain the wonderful sense of confidence that comes with gaining a stronger, more stable body. This confidence seems to propel them into new activities and serves to fulfill social and emotional aspects of their lives as well as their physical fitness.
Now, it is YOUR CHOICE!
Here's what people say about working with Julia
How Anne went from a bad hip to hiking in Grand Canyon
How Jeanne went from two hip replacements to doing strength training & cardio but more importantly feeling confident with her daily activities
"After all, having a body you can count on to do all the stuff you want to do every day makes your whole life better, AND have you considered where you're going to be a year from now if you DON'T get started? The last thing I would want is for you to waste, a day, a week, a month, or even a YEAR struggling when you can prioritize your health today."
