TRAIN with Me!
As a full-time doctor at The Cleveland Clinic I still aim to carve out enough time to maintain a high level of fitness with a focus on long-term health and longevity. You might not have the luxury of spending hours in the gym each day, but that doesn't mean you can't get and stay fit! Thus, TRAIN was born: 1 hour in the gym per day, 5 days per week, fully scheduled out for you and jam-packed to build a solid foundation of GPP and proficiency in the full gamut of weightlifting, gymnastics, and monostructural skills. Workouts and movements are individualized to each member using specific modification parameters and TRAINing zones. I will be doing this exact training program alongside you, so we can motivate and hold each other accountable!
Who should TRAIN?
Whether you're an athlete training for local competitions or a busy mom, dad, business owner, teacher, nurse, lawyer, or doctor…if want to improve your fitness and make the most of your hour in the gym, this program is for YOU. The hour is fast-paced and involves a wide range of movements from monostructural to complex Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics skills. Prior experience and instruction in these movements is recommended, as well as an understanding of how to appropriately scale movements and workouts to fit your ability level. Grab a few friends to throw down with, and come TRAIN with me!

How Does it Work?
You just get to the gym, and let us worry about the rest. Each training day you will receive a task list which includes a warm-up, workout, strength and/or skill work, and a cool down. The tasks will be scheduled to fit a strict 60-minute timeline. We recommend you write this timeline up on the whiteboard when you enter the gym, set the clock, and go all out. When the clock hits 60, you can leave the gym confident that you put in the work to increase your fitness in a time-efficient way. We'll even send you an email each Saturday with pre-programmed timers and videos of the warm-up and cool down exercises to keep you on track. This program utilizes just one of your precious hours to give your body what it needs.
A gauge for your overall Fitness and Progress. This is a single number that captures how your performance stacks up to the rest of the community.
We’re all human. Some days we don’t feel like training. Recognizing this, we can put systems in place to safeguard against our less-desirable human qualities. BTWB has been one such system that has contributed to my success in training for the CrossFit Games, and one that I will continue to leverage to ensure I reach my fitness goals. Subscribing to a program in which a coach and community sees my results each day holds me accountable to getting all of my work done, not to mention the Type-A satisfaction I derive from “checking off” all of the tasks listed for the day. Knowing that my training partners across the world will see my results helps me push myself harder. Checking the leaderboard for each workout provides motivation to continue to improve. It is my intent for TRAIN to provide not only time-efficient programming, but the accountability and inspiration necessary to get more out of yourself than you ever thought possible.
Receive instant analysis for each workout result. View personal records, gym/world rankings, work/power output, and more. You'll also receive Workout Levels (1-99) that will tell you how good your result actually is. How decent is a 4:22 Fran? Where does a 322 lb Deadlift rank? Which is better? Workout Levels will tell you. Instantly.
Personalized to You
The TRAIN with Julie Foucher program is not one-size-fits all. We realize that each member of our program is at a different place in their fitness journey and our goal is to provide programming that meets you where you’re at and helps move you forward toward your goals in an intelligent and efficient way. To do this, rather than prescribing weights or movement modifications for our workouts, we provide parameters for each member to choose their own. For example, we may ask you to choose a weight that is a certain % of your 1 rep max or a modification at which you could complete X number of reps unbroken. We also value the importance of balanced energy system development. In order to provide you with guidance on how to approach each workout, our members use either heart rate or rated perceived exertion to make sure they are achieving the intended stimulus of a given workout.
