Being Powerfully Fit, Full of Play, Joy, and Strength: Julia Linn, 65

Julia Linn was diagnosed with diabetes as a child and, by age 30, it was clear that she may only live to 40 with the condition that her organs were in. She decided to have a risky double-organ transplant. She then went through a triple cardiac bypass. When she came upon the anniversary of her life-saving surgery, she decided to pay herself back by giving the gift of health. Now, she is powerfully strong, has gone through an incredible physical transformation, and looks at life in a new way. 

Julia shares her life of health struggles, how she got to where she is now, her advice for others wanting to transform and take control of their lives, and more.

“I didn’t start this journey by looking in the mirror and going ‘Ugh! I hate how I look. I hate my bat wings, I hate this, I hate that.’ I started with the idea that I love what this body has done for me in 62 years and I want to really take care of it, give it the self-care and self-love.” 

“It’s not that you don’t have the time, it’s that you’re not making the time. We pay attention to what’s important to us.”

“Obesity is hard. Getting fit is hard. Pick your hard.”
