Julian Edwards gained an appreciation and passion for health and fitness early in his life. His career in Track and Field began when he was just nine years old. It was through his competitive running – more specifically, sprinting- that Julian learned how dedication, hard work, and a healthy lifestyle were necessary ingredients to performance. As a youth, he ran for three different community club teams where he found success on a national level at the Junior Olympics. In high school, he found himself ranked 2nd in the state for the 400 meter dash and 1st in the Philadelphia Catholic League for the 100, 200, 400, and 4×400 meter races. These successes earned Julian a scholarship to Mount Saint Mary’s University, where he continued to pursue his love of running at the Division 1 level while pursuing a degree in Business. After college, Julian returned to Bishop McDevitt High School to coach his former team. He spent two years as an assistant coach before being promoted to Head Coach of the Cross Country, Indoor, and Outdoor Track and Field teams. Wanting to ensure his athletes’ maximum performance and safety, Julian chose to further his education at the National Personal Training Institute. It was here that he mastered his ability to strengthen the human body, prevent and rehabilitate injuries, and guarantee success. Additionally, the program prepared him for his National Academy of Sports Medicine Certification.
