Fitness has always been Klae’s passion. He grew-up watching and admiring his older cousins lifting weights and competing in sports. This was different from most of his family and surrounding community. These athletic men in his life inspired him to begin his journey of inspiring others.

In high school, Klae played football and ran track at Mt. Carmel high school in Chicago. Klae went on to study marketing at UW Platteville. After college Klae worked in marketing, but felt that he had more to contribute. Searching for his niche in the world Klae relocated to New York City. All the while Klae kept a foot in the fitness world. He has competed in and won body building and power lifting competitions. There are a variety of companies and fitness magazines he has modeled for Mens Health, Mens Fitness, and Muscle Fitness etc. Klae played semiprofessional football and won a national championship, during his tenure in New York.

Klae moved to Milwaukee and began obtaining a formal fitness and nutrition education, he also founded the Milwaukee Muscle Mil LLC. While back in Milwaukee, Klae has formed a partnership with the Milwaukee Public Schools to work on a comprehensive program aimed at educating staff and parents on general health and fitness, through boot camps and individual mentorship. Klae is an energetic, result driven person; he translates this into working on a one-to-one basis with clients to ensure that they achieve their goals.


Former elite athlete—retired professional ballet dancer, Julie is well versed in the application of proper technique and form in order to enhance personal performance.

“I’m in a unique position—to be in a youthful, energized profession while having the opportunity to draw on a lot of valuable life & professional experience. In my late forties, and after many years of related teaching experience and a corporate career, I began training clients privately and started seeing some wonderful results rather quickly. I began thinking–what’s next? How can I make a really meaningful difference? Finally, I devoted myself entirely to training and haven’t looked back. I believe it’s my responsibility as their trainer to provide a diverse skill set, adaptability to their particular needs and the creativity to keep it fresh and enjoyable. Whether my client is 18 or 80, athletic or a beginner, physically able or challenged—those goals continue to be a valuable compass.

Julie has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Alverno College, has performed with The Milwaukee Ballet Company, and has been a guest-artist with a variety of companies in the United States. She is an experienced trainer, an RRCA Certified Coach and a Running Clinic of Canada, Running Specialist. An avid, competitive runner herself, Julie specializes in minimalist running coaching for experienced runners as well as those taking their first steps on the road or trail.


I have always been interested in helping people in any way that I can. As an educator and administrator in Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) for a combined 24 years, I was committed to helping students and their families become successful towards reaching career goals, graduation and college. While at Roosevelt Middle School of the Arts, I used my dance background to help students succeed through exposure and exploration to dance and it’s various genres.

As a former professional dancer and most recently retired teacher/administrator with MPS, I have committed myself to helping people achieve their physical goals as a personal trainer. With my teaching, dance, and ACE (American council on Exercise) backgrounds I try to combine a unique perspective to suit my clients needs. I believe that my age is an asset to working with those who have strength, flexibility and balance issues or for those who lack confidence in a gym setting.


I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from UW-Milwaukee and have been personal training since 2004.  I also have a Master’s degree in Geosciences and am currently in the process of getting certified to teach middle and high school science.  My favorite physical activities are backpacking, hiking and yoga. I also enjoy running with my dog.  I believe in living an active lifestyle and practicing self care will create a happy and healthy life.


I wouldn’t be involved in this industry if I didn’t have a true passion for it. Growing up overweight and out of shape, I know all about the feelings of nervousness and intimidation that come with getting started on your journey to a better you. I want to help you get past those fears and give you the results you’ve always wanted.
