My name is Julia Derek and I’m a fitness trainer by day, writer by night. My fitness career began in Stockholm where I taught group fitness, primarily step, high and low impact dance classes, and body sculpting. While studying journalism at George Mason University, I taught corporate fitness for Fit Physique. After graduating, I headed to Los Angeles where I taught group fitness at places such as Beverly Hills Country Club, L.A. Fitness and Crunch. I trained primarily high-powered executives and movie producers.
