Sports sparked my interest in fitness from a young age. Playing at a high level, you really get a sense of what hard work can really do. 

I have been a personal trainer for 2 years. Coaching is a big passion of mine. Being part of a team and having that team atmosphere is something I strive for in the gym and in life. I love coming in everyday and working towards a goal of being better than the day before. I love to work hard and have fun while doing it.

Juliette Roberts

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

I first discovered CrossFit in 2014, while visiting my brother in Seoul, Korea. However, it wasn’t until 2015 that I started attended regular classes.  

My goal as a coach is to have all members push themselves to be the best they can be and to focus their energy on leaving the gym feeling better than when they came in.  

Besides coaching at CrossFit 782, I own Roberts Academy of Dance, which I opened in 2016. Having a background as a dance instructor gives me confidence to build trusting relationships with my CrossFit members, as well as to create a positive atmosphere for class.

I have been coaching since 2011 in Korea and 2014 in PEI when I moved home. Coaching has helped me deliver my passion and purpose of connecting people and helping people improve their physical and mental well being.

I hold two degrees, a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a Bachelor of Education. The combination of these two have given me the tools to deliver training programs to help you reach your health and fitness goals. I look forward to working with you to help your achieve these goals.
