Founder and co-owner of Sports Fitness Experience, Julian brings a passion and expertise for fitness that is matched only by his desire to educate those around him. In 1989, Julian started a track career that took him through four years at Georgia Tech, where he achieved various honors, including two NCAA National Championships and three All-American awards. In 2005, Julian was inducted into the Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame for these achievements. After college he continued his track career professionally for another six years. In 1996, Julian began his career as a personal trainer at Sportslife to supplement his track career.
By 2001 when he retired from the track circuit, Julian furthered his fitness scope by becoming an NSCA-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. It was at this time that Julian founded SFX as a medium to train athletes. While still working out of various private facilities, Julian took the time to advance his knowledge and network with people in the fitness industry. With all the increasing information and his own personal experiences, Julian realized that he needed a place to be able to share his philosophy of “Lifestyle Training,” (training the body to perform everyday) with the masses
In 2007, this dream was finally realized when Julian opened Sports Fitness Experience in Roswell, GA. At this facility, Julian is able to train and educate people without any judgment or prejudice. The use of high intensity, ground-based strength exercises and sports performance techniques help both personal training clients and athletes achieve and surpass their fitness and athletic goals.
