About

Welcome to Julie’s Fitness Studio
To inspire, motivate and create a better you!

My name is Julie Westenfelder and I am the owner of Julie's Fitness Studio.   I have lived in the Anthony Wayne district all my life.   I graduated from Anthony Wayne High School and then got my bachelors degree from Bowling Green State University.   I have 2 boys, Isaac and Ethan, who are both Anthony Wayne students and participate in cross country, basketball, and track.   I am a certified W.I.T.S. personal trainer, certified group exercise instructor, certified TRX® instructor, and a certified Spinning® instructor.   I have been teaching group exercise classes since 2005 and have been a personal trainer since 2010.   As an added challenge I enjoy running and have completed 4 half marathons!

I decided to become a personal trainer after I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.   That diagnosis changed my life direction and it became crystal clear that I wanted to help people anyway that I could just like the surgeons/nurses helped me through my surgery/recovery!   I love the one on one relationship that you build with each client and the results are amazing!   This is my full time job and I love changing people’s lives!

"To inspire, motivate and create a better you" perfectly describes my goals for my personal training clients.   My wide range of experience includes working with preschoolers on gross motor skills, school athletes and sports conditioning, weight loss for all ages, and even the older generation on improving balance and functional movements.   If you have the desire and determination to work toward your goals I can help you achieve them!

It has always been a dream of mine to own and operate my own studio.   Now that dream has become reality and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Tracey Mitchell

Tracey Mitchell

I have been married for 13 years; we do not have children however we have four rescue dogs. I hold a NESTA Certified Personal Fitness Training certification as well as being certified first aid master trainer for my employer. I am also a certified Spinning® instructor. I decided to become a personal trainer after realizing what a life changing affect my personal trainer had on me, my opportunity to pay it forward. I love efficiency, simplicity and variation in training, a mix of strength, core and cardio. I truly believe that we have made fitness too complicated with specialized focus on this and a special machine for that, the best workout tool we have is our body and its ability to do amazing things. Like most people I fall prey to motivational issues, so every year I participate in one challenging event to keep me on my toes. Through the years this has included a marathon, a few Tough Mudders, several triathlons; anything I can use as a motivational goal. My focus with these events is not to be competitive, but to stay active and when someone asks me why I would do something like that; my answer is always “because I can”.

I also work part time as clinic aide in an elementary school clinic. I decided to become a personal trainer after years of struggling with weight issues myself.

I continue to work out, take yoga classes and walk on a regular basis.

Dawn Haas

My name is Dawn Haas. I taught fourth grade for 27 years and recently retired from teaching!! I have taught group exercise classes for the last eight years. My certifications include American Council on Exercise group fitness instructor, YogaFit yoga instructor, and APA-1 aqua aerobics instructor. I teach step aerobics, water aerobics, indoor cycling, yoga and weight training. I absolutely love teaching group fitness classes. I think it's the most enjoyable way to workout!

Jude Hancock

Carrie Flagg

I am a newly certified Spinning® instructor. I have coached high school and junior high cross country and teach Art at Anthony Wayne High School. I live in Waterville with my husband and three children. I love engaging in a range of fitness activities including, running, road biking, strength training, and an occasional soccer game.

My passion for fitness began after my last child was born and I decided to get serious about losing some weight. I began researching and experimenting with various forms of exercise and studied nutrition. I quickly learned how amazingly strong our bodies and minds can be. Running became more than just losing weight. It became a challenge within myself to see how much faster and longer I could go. It has taken a marathon, some half marathons, a sprint triathlon and a few injuries to lead me where I am today. I enjoy whatever fitness challenge sounds fun to do, whether it is training to win my age group in a 5K, exploring a new city on my road bike, or helping my team win a soccer game. I know it can be done. The sky is the limit!

I especially enjoy helping others reach their fitness goals.

I have been married for 14 years and have 3 boys. Prior to being married and having children exercise was a big part of my life; now that my children are older its getting easier to get back into fitness and exercise. Early morning runs are my favorite way to start the day!

My full time job is at the University of Toledo Medical Center where I work as a Licensed Professional Counselor in the Department of Psychiatry. Exercise is an important tool in improving mood and maintaining good emotional health. Becoming a Spinning® instructor has been a great way to incorporate the mind and body into the fitness experience!

Mary Dressel

Mary Dressel

As a child and teen I built a strong physical foundation through competitive gymnastics. As an adult however, my commitment to fitness and general wellness was an on-again off-again thing. A few years ago I began running for the first time. I went from my first 5k in April of 2012, to a full marathon the following April. And then in typical me fashion, I quit running. After almost two years of doing nothing, I slowly started running again, and going to Julie's studio. I got serious about fitness, and ran another full marathon in October of 2015, taking 13 minutes off my time! I know that this was due being more fully fit, and I have Julie to thank. My hope is that I can help others, like Julie helped me, to realize that they are more capable of reaching whatever goals they have, and even surpass them.

Outside of the studio I am a fourth grade teacher at Whitehouse Primary. I also live in Whitehouse with my husband of 16 years, and our two children. Both of my children are involved in track and cross country, and running with them in Oak Openings is my current favorite thing to do!

Mary Grosse

Mary Grosse

Mary has a passion for fitness and strives to disguise her exercise classes as a fun adventure. She enjoys teaching cardio drumming, dance, and group weight training. Besides her love for teaching, Mary's first love is her family. Her favorite role is being a wife and mom. She is also fond of her "real" job as a graphic designer. Her specialty is product design/illustration in the toy and hobby industry. I guess you can say she never wants to grow up.

Penny McCamey

The journey of a lifetime begins with the first step! My first step began with a phone call to Julie Westenfelder and three powerfully motivating words she said to me, ” just get moving!” I haven’t stopped. When I started with Julie my goal was to lose weight, but so much has changed since that first encounter with her. She has patiently and compassionately opened my eyes to a new me. I refuse to be defined by a weight on the scale! I have choices, and I choose to keep putting one foot in front of the other day after day. I have a new outlook on life. I want to be healthy, and losing weight is a definite perk to a healthy new me. Oh, I have good days and bad days. The road to a healthy me is hard work. Sometimes I struggle, but I feel energized and I’m determined. If I fall down, I get back up and just keep moving forward. I started taking classes at Julie’s fitness studio and found more than just exercise and toning classes there. I found a family of support and encouragement, in all different shapes and sizes. We’re all at different levels of ability, but none of that matters!!! We all have a story to tell… We all want the same thing. A healthy us. Julie is helping me on that journey. I’m so glad I made that phone call and JUST GOT MOVING!!!

Kayla Bohman

It was weeks before my son Christian’s 1st birthday, and I desperately needed to be planning his party, but instead I found myself standing looking in the mirror and thinking “If I could just lose this extra weight.” This wasn’t the first time I had done this, it was something I had done hundreds of times. What was different now was that I was thinking about my son, and the fact that he was soon going to be running all over and I was going to want to keep up with him, not watch him from the couch. I decided right then and there that more than anything else, I wanted to be a healthy mom for him, one he could look up to, and I knew at that moment I wasn’t that person.

Although I had started spinning at Julie’s a month or so before my revelation, and that was a great workout for me, I knew that for me, it just wasn’t enough. As soon as I began spinning I would hear people talk about how great Julie was, and how great the gym itself was. One Saturday I decided to take a deep breath and talk to Julie about my situation. In thinking back, I could not have possibly realized how much that split-second decision, and the phone call that followed, would change my life. I was able to open up to Julie; she listened and understood what I was going through. I felt so comfortably with her from the very beginning, and I knew she would be able to help me.

Shortly after, I started training with Julie once a week, and attending multiple classes at the gym. Not only is Julie great, but the other trainers and members are as well. Unlike other gyms, Julie’s is like a family. From the moment you walk in, everyone makes you feel welcomed, supported and cared about. That support is honestly a huge part of the reason I am able to write this. Not only did I have Julie, but I had Tracy and Lisa helping me every step of the way, along with all of the other gym members, who have been cheering me on and celebrating every ounce/pound of my weight loss, and applauding me every time I am able to do just one more push up. From that split second decision, which was a little over 6 months ago, through today, I have lost close to 30lbs and 30 inches of fat. For me, Julie’s Fitness Studio was that missing link, and that one phone call has changed my life. I no longer stand around wishing I could lose that extra weight, and making excuses to myself on why it hasn’t happened. When my son turns 2 in February, I can truly give him the gift of being a healthy mom, and one that loves to run around with him!

Angela Rose

What can I say? This has been a journey of a lifetime, to say the least! In January a good friend convinced me to try a class at Julie's fitness studio! In a very hesitant manner, I agreed. Little did I know this would change my life. For years, I was ashamed at the lack of attention I had given to myself. I'm not sure if I even looked in the mirror at myself anymore. I had given up and made others my priority. It was time to think of ME! I began to open my eyes and see the unhealthy lifestyle that I was living. Admitting there is a problem is half the battle! I was moving very little, actually avoiding it. My eating was out of control. I would skip breakfast and lunch and then eat EVERYTHING in the evening. Foods filled with massive fats and calories. My choices at restaurants were repulsive. I was even winded walking up a flight of stairs in my home. Something needed to change, fast!

I decided to join the annual weight loss challenge at Julie's fitness studio. Why not! That was the puzzle piece that changed everything! Julie offered nutrition classes as well as personally assisted me in realizing that breakfast is an important meal and eating small amounts throughout the day is much healthier than starving yourself. I went full force, taking classes almost every night. I started personal training with Julie, the biggest motivator of all! The most amazing thing about Julie's fitness studio is the fact that NO ONE judges you, instead they ENCOURAGE! It's a big family and I had became a member of this family. During that first class, I couldn't do a full sit up or hold a plank and I was winded at every move. Never, was I judged for this! I was given great praise once I could "rock" those sit ups and hold that plank. I was getting stronger and stronger! Wow, that felt good! You see, it's your journey, your story and everyone at this studio respects that. It warms my heart that the instructors are willing to support in such a positive manner. Julie, Tracey, Mary and all the instructors at Julie's fitness studio are fantastic and a huge part of my continued success.

As I began to loose weight and become stronger, I noticed a happier more confident ME. I felt better because I was moving and eating healthier. So, here I sit several months later and about 40 pounds lighter. It's nice when people notice and your husband smiles a tiny bit bigger at you (this could be in my head as my hubby has always smiled sweetly at me but his support has been overwhelming). I even had someone not recognize me. Crazy how that weight can change your appearance. Last week, I decided to go shopping and I have dropped from a 2XL to a L in tops. Pants I have gone from a 20 to a 14. There was certainly a happy dance in that fitting room! I have a long way to go, I continue to go to classes every week and my personal training is a must. I look forward to the workouts and I LOVE the way I feel! The energy that I have exceeds anything I ever expected. I will continue my journey, changing my life, one pound at a time! I'm still me, a healthier more fit me! Thank you Julie's fitness studio for assisting me in this journey!
