Hi, I am Julie, and I have been part of the PT team at Goodlife Health Clubs Loganholme since 2005; and I have held the position of Personal Training Manager since 2011.
Born and bred local, I grew up in Beenleigh. My husband and I built our first home in Logan in 2016, and we love being part of the vibrant community. In my youth, I was a very active child. I loved school sports, particularly running. When I became a senior in high school, I started training in the gym and quickly became hooked. My love for fitness and exercise only grew from there.
When I finished high school, I went to university to study teaching. After I graduated, I knew it wasn’t the career pathway I wanted to take. I re-evaluated where my interests and passions were and decided to study again. This time to become a personal trainer. I have never looked back.
There are so many aspects of being a personal trainer that I highly value. There is so much variety in what I do. No two days are the same. I also really appreciate that because of my role, I never stop learning new things. One of the main reasons I love being a personal trainer is knowing I can make a difference in the lives of my members, clients, the students I mentor, and the team of trainers and staff I work with.
Having been in the fitness industry for a long time and holding a teaching degree, I knew that working with AIPT was the next step for me. I want to give back to the industry I love while also helping to shape the up-and-coming trainers of the future.
“Got for it! It’s definitely hard work, but it’s so worth it. Especially with the state of the world now. There’s so much to be said of our physical, emotional and mental health and the impact our overall health and fitness have on our ability to fight illness and infection. We need passionate Personal Trainers who can help our communities be happy, healthy and active.”
