Scott Somerville  5 star ***** Before starting to work with Julie, I
weighed 226 pounds. At 5’8 this was a very unhealthy weight and my BMI was considered obese. I was eating fast food and drinking sodas daily. My sleep habits were not consistent and I suffered from lacked energy. I was slowly becoming more lazy and was in need of help.

I have lost 50 pounds and 7 inches in eight months. I went from wearing an XXL shirt to wearing a MED. My weight loss has been life changing. With Julie’s help I have changed my eating habits and added exercise to my weekly routine. I have learned that encompassing a clean and well balanced meal plan is very important if you want to live a healthy lifestyle. I am getting more restful sleep and not waking up in the middle of the night like I used to, with more energy throughout the day.

Not only have I lost weight and inches but my lab work has significantly improved. My cholesterol level has gone from 197 to 153. My LDL has come down 20 points and my HDL has gone up 9 points. I have also have struggled with high triglyceride levels for years and those numbers have gone down by more than half from 306 to 140.

Julie took the time and effort to sit down with me and make a plan on how to achieve my healthy lifestyle. She is a strong believer in changing your lifestyle in order to achieve your goals. Throughout the process she has encouraged and educated me while allowing me to go at a pace I felt comfortable at. She boosted my self confidence, and made me feel comfortable, encouraging me to document my weight- loss process. I have never met someone so knowledgeable and committed to such a healthy lifestyle who is more than willing to help others in their journey. If you are looking for a trainer who will motivate and give you attainable results hire Julie as your trainer! She’s the best! Halestorm Fitness Rocks!

She helped me perfect my handstands and backbends. Not only that but my 10 year old cousin is extremely flexible now because of Julie. I highly recommend coming to Julie if you want to become fit and active. 🙂
