In response to her clients’ needs to recharge from the stresses of everyday life, Julie started Training & Champagning™, a curated wellness travel company. Julie’s passion is to provide clients with an experience that allows them to “hit the reset button” and empowers them to come back to their life recharged and ready to take on the next challenge.
Julie has recently expanded her retreats to serve corporate clients with a fresh approach to corporate retreats. Her Thrive program pairs wellness with leadership to provide an experience that energizes participants in both their personal and professional lives.
Julie is the Program & Marketing Director for Excellence in Exercise. Julie is an ACE certified personal trainer, certified yoga instructor and corporate wellness manager, working with corporate partners to provide programs & special events for employees worldwide.
As a trainer & instructor, Julie works to connect personally with her clients so that she can motivate them to set and achieve their goals and recognize their potential. Julie is also an active presenter – speaking, conducting workshops and teaching classes.
Julie’s background is diverse with a Bachelor of Art Degree in Music and Master of Art Degree in Communication, specializing in Advertising & Public Relations, both from the University of Alabama; and a Master of Music Degree in Voice Performance from the University of Texas at Austin.
Originally from Sylacauga, Alabama, Julie now resides in Marietta, Georgia with her husband Kristian, their son JP and the best bad dog ever Theo. When not in the gym or studio or planning the next event, Julie enjoys singing, reading, spending time with her family and friends and occasionally sipping a champagne cocktail!
Julie’s Philosophy: Smile, breathe and take on your next challenge with confidence – whether it’s in the gym, the yoga studio or in your everyday life!
“As much as we love our families and careers and everyday life, we all need time to ourselves. When you take time to do something productive, to nourish yourself, to take care of your body and recharge your mind, you’ll come back willing and able to be present and active in your life.”
