“Julie is a wonderful professional personal trainer. Her ability to tailor workouts to my personal needs has moved me to a new level of fitness. I am very pleased with my improvements.”

“Just over a year ago I started working with Julie. I was nearing the end of eighteen months of cancer treatment with only a few infusions left to go. My balance and stamina were shot, and I felt exhausted and weak. From the beginning, Julie created a fitness plan for me that was safe, doable, and aimed at improving my health. Her capacity to start from where I was and slowly encourage, stretch, build, and push me just the right amount, has kept me coming back every week since. Physically, this has been a critical part of my healing, and I can do things I never thought possible. Emotionally, this has been an incredibly positive and energizing experience that I am grateful for. I feel strong, and healthy, and in better shape than I was before the cancer!”

“Julie’s expertise and knowledge of body physics and mechanics far surpasses any other trainer/coach I have ever worked with. She creates a very comfortable, but work-driven environment. Julie is sensitive to each individual’s needs and capabilities. Every movement is done with intention. I have been working out with Julie since she began her business and I can see and feel the results! I would most definitely recommend Julie as a very professional, personal trainer!”

“Julie has been my personal trainer for a number of months now, and my experience has been truly transformative. Julie is wonderful at what she does, and I look forward to our sessions each and every week. She is extremely warm, welcoming, and positive. You can clearly see she is passionate about personal training and extremely knowledgeable. As a result, I too have become very passionate about personal training, exercising, staying fit, and being healthy.
In addition to Julie’s warm and energetic enthusiasm, she is committed to strength training, safety, wellness, and overall health. She always integrates the 7 essential strength-training movements into each routine. Form is an integral part of each workout. We do multiple warm ups, circuit training, and work various muscle groups. Julie educates in terms of the movements and provides clarity in each workout. She is a guide, coach, and motivator. She instills confidence that goes beyond the workout.
Julie clearly cares about what she does and really wants to help, and as a result of the work we have done, I have gotten stronger and more fit. I never thought I would say that working out is fun, but working with Julie and doing personal training is and has been an incredible experience.”

“Approximately a year ago, I set a goal to become stronger and improve my balance. It was then that I first began working with Julie. I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Fit2Function or about how fantastic I feel now. Julie has expertly overseen my training and progress while keeping my safety foremost in her mind. I look forward to each session with enthusiasm and a sense of expectation, and always come away with a feeling of accomplishment.”

“I have always thought of myself as an athlete. As I got older, my exercise routine got more sporadic. Several years ago, I had shoulder surgery that sidelined me for a while. I kept telling myself that I was going to start tomorrow, but it never happened. When Julie told me about her new career, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get back on track. I have been working out with Julie for about 6 months. Julie has been a great motivator. She has taken into consideration my restrictions due to old injuries. After training with Julie for several months, I was motivated to clean up my diet. Between working with Julie and cleaning up my food, I am down a pant size and am feeling stronger and more energetic than I have in years. If you work out like an athlete and eat like an athlete, then you start to look like an athlete. Julie, thanks for your help!”
“Over the last 30 years, I have religiously participated in various workouts, including yoga, Pilates, cross fit, aerobics, etc. The last six months, I have been personally training with Julie Horst at Fit2Function weekly, and it has far exceeded my expectations in my strength, endurance and health. It is by far the best workout program I have experienced. Thank you, Julie!”
