I can’t say enough about Julie Durkin as a strength and conditioning coach. I first started training with Julie during Covid. At a time when everyone around me was anxious and unsteady, I never felt stronger. She showed me that physical strength is the foundation of emotional strength. Her encouragement and attention to correct form and technique, keeping me safe, helped me so much.

Thank you, Julie!

Jennie Torres

My health and fitness journey started back in 2010 when I became Taconic fitness manager. I’ve always struggled with consistency in the gym. I’d work out diligently for a couple of weeks on my own and then fall off the bandwagon for a month or two. Somedays, I would over do it at the gym causing me to be too sore to even work out the next week. Fitness was a constant up and down struggle for me. As a result of the inconsistency, I never saw good results until I met Julie. Her motivation and support pushed me to be more consistent with completing my workouts every day.


 Before I met Julie, my weight was increasing and I was not happy with the way I looked. But Julie gave me a road map to success by showing me what great eating habits looked by giving me meal-prepping ideas and showing me workout routines that I could fit into any part of my day, no matter how busy I was.  This helped make fitness a more practical part of my lifestyle.


In 2015, Julie did a presentation about Bootcamp Fitness and I loved it. I remember her talking about Group Fitness classes, which caught my attention because working out in a group is something I had never tried before. After my first class,  I remember feeling completely exhausted but energized at the same time. I couldn’t wait to try other classes!  Over the following months, I became a “regular” in other classes like BodyPump and Zumba. The instructors did a great job of making everyone feel like family. They were always very friendly and encouraging. The instructors and other class members all pushed each other give the most effort possible which was an aspect of fitness I had never experienced before but it gave me the extra motivation to give my all.


Staying motivated in fitness is always a struggle, but when you join Julie in her fitness training class, whether it’s one on one or in a group, Julie always finds a way to make the training fun while making you work hard.

Prioritizing time to work out also became easier for me be.

About Julie:

She has been working in the field of nutrition and exercise for 28 years and has a passion for helping individuals find ways to incorporate exercise and healthy food into their lives in a way that makes sense for them.

You can find her on Instagram and Facebook as julie.durkin1, where she shares health tips and much more.


Working with her clients on their mindset, nutrition, and fitness has proven to her every person is different and there are many strategies and tools to help them navigate reach their goals, and feel good about themselves. Once someone knows what they should be doing in terms of food and exercise, the next step is figuring out the strategies that will help them accomplish those goals within the parameters of their sometimes stressful, often busy day.  As a mom of 3 children, I recognize that not everyone has unlimited time and energy for cooking and for working out.
