Fitness With a View
Wellness With a Great Outlook
The philosophy of Fitness with a View is to provide knowledge and atmosphere for a better you. That is what we have worked to achieve by our facilities both with a Greenville Downtown location and the one at Homestead at Hartness on the eastside off of Garlington road. The downtown location provides the convenience for our downtown clients with the character that downtown brings. The eastside location draws clients there due to its beauty. How can you not want to come and work out when the facility is on a 10 acre pond with a track for running, walking, and cycling. The option is always available to make the studio open air as well with our large apertures to the outside both in the personal training area and the group fitness room. The community also has a paved 1 mile track for when you just want to get a little more.
Our knowledge of exercise and nutrition is of utmost importance to us. As you are probably well aware the human body and functions are a constant evolving science. What you know now will change in 10 years. That is why it is a priority to continue with our education in our field and bring on professionals that do the same. In order for us to have ‘exercise with you in view’ we have to be on top of our game. We view it a privilege to be entrusted as a coach for your health, so we do all we can to help you in that area.
We Have a Passion For Wellness
Jamie has been training since 2002 and providing nutritional consultation since 2005. He studied at Greenville Technical College for 2 years in the personal training, biology, and nutrition division. He got into this area because of a back injury, and wanted to better take care of himself. Once he found out how enjoyable this field was he changed careers. He then pursued getting licensed through ACE (American Council on Exercise) and the Lifestyle Management Group out of Massachusetts in nutrition. This allows him to talk to many specialized groups ranging from: weight loss, muscle hypertrophy, diabetics, cardio patients, etc. He is certified in post and pre menopause and pregnant clients, exercise design, as well as athletic program design. He also is specialized in the functional movement style; covering all areas of weight resistance, cardio, and flexibility. He has been trained in the field of Gray Cooke. (Gray Cooke did an in depth study on functional movements of professional athletes to determine how to find and correct asymmetries in the body.)
He has a family of 5, a wife of 20 years and 3 children. They give him the passion to not only better his own health but also those around him. He feels a healthy lifestyle is necessary in order to be healthy. He believes each client has their own goal they want to achieve, not one exactly the same as the next. Jamie wants to help clients with their goals and this drives him to learn more about the body. Let’s have fun finding health!

After graduating from Greer High School in 1986, Juli went to the University of South Carolina where she earned a BS in Psychology. Her goal was to go on to graduate school to earn a Ph.D. It was while she was doing her internship that she was dismayed with her chosen profession. She wanted to help people be healthy and happy. However, the fresh dose of reality helped her realize psychology was not the vehicle for her passion. Feeling overwhelmed and sidetracked from her original long term plans, she took an extended time off the professional track. She sought travel and play through exploration and physical activity.
Juli moved west to Aspen, Colorado where she learned the joy of snowboarding, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, and other fun activities. Regular daily activity became a new way of life for her. Eventually, Juli became very sick with a variety of illnesses and was a regular at the doctor’s office. She calls this ‘the doctor’s revolving door’ chapter of her life. After about half a year of persistent sickness, she became proactive with her health. And, thus, she began a personal journey of well-being and natural healing.
As Juli explored nutrition and exercise, she, further, began to see that health and happiness are intrinsically intertwined. Living a vibrant productive life appeared to be the best way to not only love herself, but more fully love the nearest and dearest in her life. Further, Juli realized she had to align her real passions with her professional life. She became an ACSM Certified Trainer after completing the Greenville Technical College personal training program. Within months, she continued her journey with certifications in Pilates' mat and reformer.
Juli has trained for six years, now, including over 500 hours of Pilates. She loves the variety of clientele at Fitness With A View. She thrives from the commitment of them all along with the passion of other dedicated professionals. In spite of two ‘bad’ knees, severe cervical arthritis, and rotator tears, Juli continues to be active and embraces a natural lifestyle to manage all of life’s challenges. She lives in Greer with her son Pace, her parents, their cat Lily, and Spots, the leopard gecko. I look forward to sharing my love for active lifestyles, fitness and wellness with my son as he grows and many others just like you.
