JULIAN WARD- PERFORMANCE/SKILLS TRAINER
My name is Julian Ward, and I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. I attended Pflugerville High school and was involved in sports such as football, basketball, and track. Some accomplishments I had received while at Pflugerville were the 40 yard dash record, vertical jump record, ESPN Top 150 in football and one of the top track athletes in my class of 2011. Due to injury in my senior year, it cost a lot of my football scholarships to be taken away, but I was still able to be blessed to play the sport I love in college at West Texas A&M and Texas State University.
I studied Sports and Exercise Science, Sports Management, and graduated with a Recreational Administration degree. For six years I was able to change a lot of young high school athletes lives from being a coach for basketball, football and track & field. In those six years I was honored to become a head Track coach, Head basketball Coach and Offensive Coordinator for football. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Exercise Recovery Specialist. I believe that every athlete has the opportunity to be successful, but it is up to them to be focused through the process.

I have competed in sports my entire life, everywhere from soccer for over a decade, Collegiate football for a national championship team, and my personal favorite powerlifting on the national level. I have been competing in powerlifting for almost 7 years now and have loved every minute of it.
Lifting is something that has changed my life for the better and it’s something I want to spread onto other people, one client at a time. No matter if you’re 17 or 70, it is never too late to start and the physical/ mental health benefits that come with being physically active outweigh any fears that may be stopping you from bettering yourself!
