Congratulations to Julia Palmieri, RWJ Fitness & Wellness Center's Trainer of the Month for September 2010!
Specialty: International Sports Sciences Association
"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog." -Mark TwainBio: Julia's goal is to help members feel healthier and more energetic, so they can enjoy an active lifestyle with family and friends. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from Rutgers University, and her personal training certification from the International Sports Sciences Association.
Her training sessions incorporate a variety of exercise techniques, depending on her clients' capabilities and fitness goals. Her focus is to keep people moving and having fun.
In her free time, Julia enjoys running, kickboxing, and athletic challenges. She loves relaxing at home with her family and friends on the weekends, cooking, and watching movies. Her favorite foods are pumpkin ravioli and pizza. Fun fact: In high school, Julia was challenged to a McDonald's cheeseburger-eating contest by a friend and won.
With each training session, Julia strives to motivate. Her theory is simple: Believe it, see it, and then achieve it.
