Julie Foucher is a medical degree student, professional CrossFit athlete and coach. She is also considered one of the fittest and most consistent CrossFitters in the world, never finishing outside top 5 at her four Games appearances. Julie’s CrossFit athleticism stemmed from high school gymnastics, tennis, soccer, and track and field. As a senior she won the Michigan Division II all-around gymnastics championship.
Julie was first introduced to CrossFit while completing her undergrad at the University of Michigan in the summer of 2009. Within one year she qualified for the Games, finishing in 5th place at the 2010 CrossFit Games and 2nd place at the Central East Regionals. Julie also finished in 5th place at the 2011 CrossFit Games but took out 1st place at the Central East Regionals.
Julie then went on to become the 2nd Fittest Woman on Earth at the 2012 CrossFit Games and finish 1st place at the Central East Regionals. In 2013 she took a year off from competition to focus on medical school. Upon her return Julie stood on the podium yet again as the 3rd Fittest Woman on Earth at the 2014 CrossFit Games and finished 1st place at the Central East Regionals. In 2012 and 2014 she also finished in 1st place at the CrossFit Invitational with Team USA.
Unfortunately during Julie’s appearance at the 2015 Central Regionals she tore her Achilles tendon. We’ll never forget her heartache, drive, determination and spirit that day, it was devastating yet an inspiration to say the least. Julie carried on competing with a large black medical boot and still finished in 8th place. WOW! This injury resulted in surgery which prevented Julie from competing at the 2015 CrossFit Games. Post injury, Julie finished in 13th place at the 2016 Central Regionals.
Currently Julie is focused on her medical training and will graduate class of 2017 with her medical degree from Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University.
Julie has had a life changing experience due to CrossFit. She has incredibly beautiful movement, technique and consistency. We love this determined, hard-working, strong and inspirational woman and we’re excited to see what’s next for this champion! Will we see her again on the podium at the 2017 CrossFit Games? We sure hope so!
