Our Coaches


Julianna Baca

Head Coach - 10k

I am Honored and excited to be a part of the USA FIT RIO coaching team because fitness has become a passion of mine. In 2011 I started a weight loss journey, and I have lost 100lbs. I started running with USA FIT RIO in spring 2012 after my first 5K at the Duke City Marathon as a major part of my fitness program. I remember finishing that first 5K, and even though I was not very fast I felt a sense of accomplishment crossing the finish line–a feeling that I still get when I cross the finish line today. Since then I have run several 5Ks, 10Ks and a half marathon. I am NASM Personal Training certified. I am currently certified to teach TABATA BOOTCAMP and have a certificate of completion of AFFA’s Group Fitness Essentials. I look forward to sharing my knowledge, experience and love of fitness in helping you accomplish your running fitness goals.
