Meet Master Coach Julie Johnston

Our team of Master Coaches has grown in 2018! Just last month, we introduced Julie Johnston as a Master Coach. Julie will work along side the Power Systems team as well as Master Coaches Bennie Wylie, Yancy Culp, and PJ Stahl to bring you amazing content throughout the year. If you haven’t gotten a chance to get to know Julie yet, let us introduce you! Julie Johnston is the founder/owner of an outdoor boot camp that has transformed over the past 14 years into what has now become Camp Rhino in Las Vegas, NV. 

Julie (aka “Mother of Rhinos”) Johnston is passionate about changing lives through fitness and Camp Rhino. She has a TON of information and experiences that she can’t wait to share with fellow trainers and business owners who are looking to create or strengthen a fitness tribe of their own. Power Systems is honored to have Julie on the Master Coach Team and we are looking forward to all of the FUN fit business tips, training tips, and creative exercises and programming that she and Camp Rhino have to share. Keep an eye out throughout 2018 for more content from Julie and be sure to stop by our IHRSA booth (#2221) to welcome Julie to the Fit Fam!

Discover Julie's Training Facility: Camp Rhino

Camp Rhino Training Facilities are truly one-of-a-kind, offering everything FUN in fitness such as boot camps, personal training, CrossFit classes, 6 week transformation challenges (with excellent graduation rates), and impressive indoor obstacles that you might recognize such as the Spear Throw, Cargo Nets, Salmon Ladder, Warped Wall, Hercules Hoist, Multi-Rig, and much more! Camp Rhino isn’t just an indoor playground for grown ups – Julie and her staff of “trainers” and “ninjas” have created a true family of Rhinos that welcomes anyone and everyone looking to change their life through fitness and have fun doing it! 

However, getting Camp Rhino started was not a walk in the park for Julie. She struggled for 14 years to build her facility. Dealing with everything from difficult landlords to loans, marketing, membership retention and more. Ultimately, Julie discovered that she needed to step down as a coach, and step up as a gym owner if Camp Rhino was going to be successful. 

Today, Julie owns two Camp Rhino locations, with a third on the way. She works with 13 full time staff members. Keep an eye on the blog as Julie shares more about her experience as a gym owner and how to overcome the odds and be successful
