Julie Gastall – Health and Fitness Coach
Julie grew up in Somerset, MA and graduated from the local high school in 2013. She then went on to attend the University of Rhode Island to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. During her 5 month internship at the Mackal Fitness and Wellness Center, Julie created a 10- week strength training program called the Mind Muscle Connection Program for a group of female students. Julie was responsible for creating the program, running the training sessions, and providing support to each member of the group on nutrition and mindfulness. During this internship, Julie assisted the Head Fitness and Wellness Specialist in training club sports teams along with members of the wellness center.
Julie’s passion for helping individuals gain confidence and succeed in the gym led her to New Horizon Medical Weight Loss Center in Foxboro, MA after graduation. At the clinic, Julie assisted patients in reaching their weight loss goals through fitness counseling, exercise coaching and training in a medical setting.
To further her expertise and to help assist these patients to her best ability, Julie received her Personal Trainer and Medical Exercise Specialist Certifications through the American Council on Exercise (ACE). These certifications allow Julie to help assist individuals who are suffering from injuries and chronic disease. Julie strives to use exercise as a method to alleviate symptoms and prevent chronic diseases from occurring in high risk individuals. Julie enjoys staying active by training for Spartan Races and applying new training methods and exercises to her own routine to stay up to date on the latest exercise research and trends.
