What some of you had to say about Julie!

Julie is one of the most bad-ass, hard-working, and humble members at Subversus. I first got to know her during the 2018 in-house team comp (#Avengers4Life), and she was an amazing teammate. Her max clean is basically my back squat, and she can burpee, box jump or burpee box jump without slowing down for hours. Plus, she’s full of positive energy – always smiling or laughing – and I’m so happy to see her on the few occasions we wind up in the same class. Congrats, Julie! This is so well-deserved.

Congrats Julie! You are a great athlete and such a supportive member! You work hard and it shows (always quietly crushing it), but you are the first to give props to your fellow teammates. So glad you are MOTM to give you the spotlight and recognition for all that you bring to the gym. You deserve it!

— Jenny

Yay Julie! Julie is so hilarious and humble. Everytime she crushes a workout, instead of thinking about how great she is, she starts wondering where she counted wrong. No Julie you didn’t count wrong, you are just that strong and that fast at burpees!!

— Greg

Julie is the best! She has such a positive attitude, always smiling and laughing and she absolutely kills it. Julie is so humble with how amazing she is too. Her squats and lifts are a thing of beauty. It is fun just to watch how easy she makes her ridiculously heavy lifts look. Julie brings a great energy in the 7:30 class and is just fun to be around. Congrats Julie for a well deserved MOTM!

Some words from the Coaches!

Julie is hands down the most humble athlete we have at Subversus. She consistently crushes workouts both inside and out of her wheelhouse- and very rarely has high expectations for herself prior to starting. She surprises herself, the coaches, and all of the other members with her small but mighty capabilities and it is truly exciting to watch her work out – and trust me, I watch A LOT of people work out. Super friendly, big time team player, and like 80% punctual – what more could you want from someone?

— Morgan

Julie and I go way back to last years in house comp(#teamavengers) and it was there where I saw that amazing athlete she continues to be to this day. Although sometimes she underestimates her abilities it’s been a pleasure coaching her and seeing her give her all in each and every workout. Small, but mighty I can alway count on Julie Kang to bring her A-game to each and every workout. Congrats girl! You deserve it. See you at 7:30 sometime.

— Luis

Julie Kang is the most humble badass that I have ever met. Kudos on the win!

— Tim

Julie is an awesome combination of humility and enthusiasm. She pushes herself to try new things and always does it with a smile. She also has a rare distinction of having been a regular in the 6am and now 7:30pm crew. That actually might be her most impressive accomplishment!

— Wylie

Huzzah! Julie is absolutely a MOTM! Dedicated, diligent, and delightful—Julie is a tremendous athlete, inspiring to coach and workout beside as well. Early or late, Julie is usually the first one finished, and the first one cheering for everyone else. Always ready to be an excellent example of form or to volunteer for a showdown, it’s an honor to coach her and to have her as part of our community.

Now, from our winner!


I currently work as a Recruiter/Administrative Assistant for a local dental staffing agency. I’m in the midst of applying to dental schools too, so hopefully my day job will change back to Student soon!


Not sure I have a favorite workout but I don’t mind squatting!


Instead of always watching everyone’s muscle-ups in amazement, maybe I’ll have the courage to try one… … ….in my next life.


Believe it or not, I don’t like burpees! Also, in 11th grade, I’ve been hit in the head with a field hockey ball and had to get 16 (tiny) stitches… First and last time riding an ambulance… Was a bit traumatic for my teenage self because Picture Day and Junior Prom was in the same month.

Thanks for having me!

Keep up the great work!!
