Connect. Collaborate. Community.
I am so glad that you’re here!
My name is Julie and I am the Founder + CEO of The Sweat Republic - welcome!
I passionately believe in supporting others and bringing the community together. I originally created The Sweat Republic back in 2014 as a blog to share, highlight, and support local fitness instructors, studio owners, and local fitness studios. However, due to a busy career, TSR, and the goals of what was to come went on the backburner for quite some time. After taking a 6 week sabbatical from work in 2018, I went back to work and felt trapped, held back and stuck: but from what, I wasn’t entirely sure. I had conversations with peers, managers, friends, and loved ones about how I was feeling and knowing deep down that I was meant to be doing more. I knew that I was meant to create an impact and to leave a legacy.
I knew that it was time to bring The Sweat Republic back to life in order to truly support our community. Although bittersweet, I parted ways with an 8 year career and focused on rebuilding and rebranding The Sweat Republic. And here we are today! The Sweat Republic is now an online community of 1,000 members - and growing!
Our most basic human need is to connect with other people. We all crave it in some capacity, whether we are an introvert or extrovert. The Sweat Republic brings together like-minded individuals, fosters nurturing relationships and is genuinely supportive organization that everyone can feel a part of and be themselves with no judgement, no stuffiness, no competition.
The Sweat Republic is a community that will support you in both your personal and professional development, and will not only give you the tools to do so, but connect you with others in order to grow.
I’m so looking forward to connecting with you and getting to know you!
