Julie has been involved with Education of Fitness Instructors for ten years and has successfully run her own Personal Training business in the Penn and Tylers Green area for the last decade.

This new business will develop Julie’s vision of a locally-based, standalone training facility which bridges the gap between what she considers the expensive Personal Training sessions and the mainstream impersonal and ineffective gyms. The vision is to provide affordable small group training which effectively meets the fitness needs of the clients, whilst giving a high level of customer service and care.

A targeted workout for those legs, bottoms and tummies, this 45 minute workout on the Total Gym using incline resistance training to challenge those target areas. This time efficient and effective workout is great for strengthening and shaping!  Suitable for all fitness levels.
