Julia Nikolajeva Director of Russian Operations and Head Coach

Hi, I am Julia Nikolajeva. I was born in Riga, and I have worked in fitness and health all mylife.

I have many qualifications in different fitness disciplines that include aerobics, gym instructor, Fit Ball, Pilates, and fitness yoga. I am the Barcelona Bienestar Head Coach for fitness and exercise, so I am responsible for designing the training programs and I also deliver some of the training as well.

As well as all my qualifications in fitness, I am also qualified in nutrition, Leisure Management and Fitness and I am fully qualified in sports massage therapy. I am the creator of bodyFUNC Step Up! which is a functional training program that you will love!

In my native Latvia, I worked with the Association of Youth Development of Culture and Aesthetic where I prepared fitness programs for models, and I helped to organise interntional events such as Miss Russian Radio Baltic, Riga 800 and Riga Fashion Week.

In 2014 I was the NIFMA Champion Miss Ireland Bikini Fitness Model, and I also participated in the RIBBF bodybuilding and fitness Spring Classic.

I do not think of fitness as my job; it is my lifestyle. I have lived in the UK, and I was studying Leisure Management in Dublin, Ireland. I believe that “fitness” is about not only physical condition, but is more holistic so must include diet and nutrition. I also think it is important to feel good about oneself by looking the best we can. My philosophy is that life is action. As well as English, I also speak Latvian and Russian. My hobbies include snowboarding, SUP and travelling.

If you have any questions then please email me at julia@barcelonabienestar.com and I will be delighted to help you.

See you soon in Barcelona!

Julia Nikolajeva
