She participated in sports like volleyball, basketball and cheerleading since the age of five. Her passion for fitness was sparked her senior of high school and has developed into her ideal career path since then.

Her journey has taken so far, and sometimes she self reflects and feels grateful 16 year old Juli decided to take the gym seriously and began lifting weights. A few months after working out on a strict regimen, she launched her personal training career. Her journey as a coach began at an all-women’s gym in Miami Lakes, where she not only grew as a personal trainer, but created lifelong friendships with clients she still trains to this day, or as she calls them her #ironarmy. In 2016 she took her talents to The Yard Miami, where she found a family and support system that made her even more passionate about her work. 

Since day one, Juli's mission has been to create a training environment that not only motivates, but also empowers her clients to continually challenge themselves in a fun and rewarding way. She achieved this when she opened her gym in 2019. 

Even though she work with over 50 clients, she believes there are ceilings to be shattered by every single individual she coaches, and it has been remarkable help them become stronger not only physically, but mentally. There are many reasons why people choose to exercise, whether you want to reduce health risks, or look and feel better I can help you accomplish your goals. I attend seminars on a yearly basis, keep up with sports and fitness journals and have been around some of the industries top trainers learning to ensure my growth as a trainer is ongoing.

  Juli's determination and curiosity have empowered her to never turn down a challenge or an opportunity for new experiences.
