We have started featuring our trainers, instructors, and staff at Riverside Fitness. Today we'd like to introduce you to Julia Branco, one of our group fitness instructors. Let's learn more about Julia!
What classes do you teach?
What do you love about group fitness?
The group effect--we workout together, sweat together, and laugh together. I feel like it’s that team dynamic that gives us the extra OOMF!
What is your #1 piece of advice for anyone new to your class(es)?
We all start somewhere! If you get lost, just keep moving! Take classes as much as you can, and I promise you will become a Les Mills addict!
What is your #1 piece of advice for your regulars?
Take classes from all instructors. Also try different formats! Every instructor has a vibe! It makes their class truly unique.
What is your technique pet peeve?
I don’t think I have a technique pet peeve. I do think that you can do more than you think! That’s why we push you to try a higher impact option. If you’ve been taking our class for awhile try that level 3 jump knee. If you can only get one, then next class try for two.
What's your favorite workout song that always gets you amped up?
Work - Apashe, featuring Vo Williams
