- CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
- Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified
Julie was born and raised in Maryland and lives in Woodbine with her husband Brad and son Logan. She grew up playing competitive sports and soccer was her passion, playing at the youth national level and later in college. After college she was looking for something to fill that competitive void. There was the running phase, P90X phase, and Globo Gym phase. None of these quite did the trick. In 2016 her brother-in-law invited her and Brad to try a CrossFit class. Hook, line, and sinker! Julie enjoys the consistent physical and mental challenges that come with CrossFit, and that there is always something to improve upon. Favorite movements include anything with a barbell, burpees (yes burpees), and box jumps.
In 2019 Julie started coaching CrossFit Kids classes and later that year pursued her CrossFit Level 1 certificate and in 2020 began coaching adult classes as well. She co-founded the nutrition group at her previous gym and completed her Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification in 2021. She enjoys helping people reach their goals and fostering a love for fitness in kids and adults. Julie and her family moved to Western Howard County in Fall of 2022 and made Blue Crab Fitness a family affair. When not in the gym and keeping up with all of Logan’s sports endeavors, Julie enjoys being outside gardening, hiking, and taking pictures of nature. She works for Howard County Government on environmental sustainability and climate resiliency programs.
