“We can only begin to understand a principle once we live by it” – Nichiren Buddhism Coach Julie Weidenfeld lives by the principles of exercise and healthy diet in order to promote her own energy, vitality and longevity. At 50 years old, she feels the absolute best she’s ever felt in her life. This wasn’t always the case. Experiencing depression for the first time in 2001, Julie found exercise as the panacea to lift her back up. With a degree and 20-year career in finance and investment banking, Coach Julie began a new education and journey into fitness and wellness in 2009. As she embarked on her new endeavor, Julie discovered the powerful intrinsic benefits of high intensity workouts as well as the importance of a clean diet to function more optimally every day. Her mission is to guide and empower individuals to develop a health span (to live life in peak health) that matches our increasing lifespan. Coach Julie holds certification in Personal Training-NASM CPT, weightlifting-USA Weightlifting, Crossfit Level One Coaching, Speed Agility and Quickness-XPE Sports Academy, and has specialty coursework in areas including kettlebells, youth training, nutrition, mobility, and running. Most recently she received a Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist designation, as she has begun to recognize the detrimental effects sitting all day has on the body and mind.
