Julie Goodale was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 37. She had a mastectomy and reconstruction. Because of the high number of positive lymph nodes, she had chemo, radiation, and then more chemo.

Always an avid hiker and rock climber, she discovered that exercising actually improved how she felt and helped manage the side effects of her treatment. Just one year after finishing treatment, she climbed Mt. Rainier, 14,410’ to raise funds for breast cancer research. She followed that with trekking through the Himalayas, and two years later summiting Cerro Aconcagua, at 22,841’ the highest peak in the Western hemisphere.

She felt so strongly about the benefits of exercise during all phases of treatment and beyond that she became a Certified Personal Trainer with the American College of Sports Medicine and a Certified Cancer Exercise Specialist. Julie offers private training in the New York City and Hudson Valley areas, and provides online fitness information and training through her website, Julie also leads fitness workshops, and writes regularly about fitness and other survivorship issues on her blog.
