Julian’s journey with fitness began when he was introduced to strength training by his high school football coach – and it’s continued ever since. Julian competed in his first bodybuilding competition in 1995. That experience of working with a trainer to reach his goals inspired him to become an NASM certified trainer himself and he soon began training others. Over the years, his training experience has included sport-specific training, bodybuilding, core strength and stability, yoga, and obstacle course Spartan racing. Whether your goal is prioritizing fat loss, gaining muscle size and strength, or creating more structure to your current training, Julian is passionate about tapping into his 25 years of experience in designing personalized programs to help his clients become stronger and healthier versions of themselves.
