Julie Young’s O2fitness – Auburn Women’s Cycling Training Group

Recent training group graduate Melinda Naye offers her experience, "Julie is going to be starting a new 10 week cycling women's group on Monday nights at 5:30pm (beat the heat) in Auburn. If you are interested let me know and I'll get you more info. I cannot say enough about how awesome Julie Young is and how differently I am feeling about riding and my ability after working with her. She will meet you where you are at; so it doesn't matter what level you are. I am always so impressed with how each person in our group has their needs met even though we are all at different levels of ability and experience. Her experience and expertise in this sport is unsurpassed and it is quite the opportunity to have access to her and all she brings."
