Julie Kennington is the owner and co-creator of Drenched Fitness in Westlake, Calif.
She is also the creator of “Totally Drenched,” the popular and results-oriented 60-minute group-fitness class. (Britney Spears is a fan!) A challenging combination of strength training and cardiovascular exercise, “Totally Drenched” employs the acclaimed H.I.I.T. (High-intensity Interval Training) Method, a scientifically-proven way to “get you the most sweat-drenched, muscle-sculpting workout of your life.”
A certified trainer with more than 20 years experience, Julie opened Drenched Fitness in December 2009 after being dissatisfied with the workout options for new moms. In addition to flattering "nightclub" lighting and upbeat, feel-good music, the studio differentiates with its caring, inspirational staff and on-site child care facility. Julie has a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Arizona State, and is known her high-energy motivational style, a quality that she admired in her former trainer, Jillian Michaels.
Julie is married to Brandon Kennington—who is also her business partner—and they have two children. The couple plan to open Drenched Fitness studios in Santa Monica, West Hollywood, and New York City in 2015.
