As a college cheerleader turned coach, Julia spent her early 20s choreographing cheerleading at her alma mater, Loyola University Maryland. Additionally, she always enjoyed running to stay in shape. It wasn’t until the birth of her son in 2016 and gaining over 50 pounds that Julia wanted to try something that would shake up her workout routine. So thanks to her girlfriend and fellow instructor, Simona, she tried barre class and hasn’t looked back since! Shaking it up is just what it did!
Julia loves that barre class is a full body workout that is completely for YOU. It incorporates everything she grew up doing; cardio, strength training, ballet and stretching. Not to mention the sense of community and positive energy that comes with it at RISE. Julia has always enjoyed working with women and motivating them, and she can’t wait to do so as a barre instructor!
Julia loves music and incorporating her dance background into her classes. She will challenge you and make you smile and have fun at the same time. You will feel her passion, energy, and love for barre in each class!
Outside of RISE, Julia is a personal stylist for South Moon Under in Wayne. There’s no denying her love for fashion, shopping and bargain hunting. Being able to do personal shopping and styling for others gives her the ability to do something she loves while being able to spend time with her son and family.
