Julia Motekaitis grew up in South Florida, but has lived in Central Texas for a little over 16 years with her husband, three sons and two cats. With an educational background in counseling and professional experience in campus ministry and writing, her life took an unexpectedly wonderful turn as a fitness coach. After a challenging childbirth recovery, a pilates class empowered Julia in a way that changed her life. Experiencing such gratitude for this transformation, she went on to receive three different certifications to teach pilates-emphasized classes in gyms and studios from MOSSA, Les Mills, Barre Above; and completed her SoulCore certification in 2019. She is a Master Certified Health Coach with a NBC-HWC board certification anticipated in October of 2022. Additionally, Julia holds a CPR/AED certification.
This journey led to a desire to assist women to invest in overall health by pouring life, strength and healing into our bodies through healthy and safe movement, especially during times of pregnancy and *recovery from childbirth, injuries and surgeries. Julia’s Catholic faith is an integral part of her life, so among her 4 different classes, she plans to offer a scriptural class called SoulCore for those seeking to combine a growth in spirituality alongside their physical growth. Though she mainly works with women, the goal of her studio is to help ALL people keep moving, as long as possible, and as pain-free and enjoyably as possible!
A Few of Julia’s Favorite Scripture Verses:
