Her biggest passions have always been fashion and fitness. Jules has a very inspirational story and it’s best told in her own words:

“Life is all about challenging yourself then growing with each challenge. I had my biggest challenge in 2003. I was involved in a very serious car accident. Broken spine, hips and ankles… I was comatose for 6 months and in hospital for more than a year”[read more=”Read More” less=”Read Less”] 

“When the doctors told me I would never be able to walk again it was devastating. I couldn’t accept the fact of people telling me what I can’t do anymore. So I decided for myself, I’m not giving up and if it doesn’t come to me, I have to go and get it instead. It took me quite a few years before I took my first steps out of the wheelchair. But the key is never giving up and to chase your dreams and always go for the impossible. The famous quote from Muhammad Ali “impossible is nothing…” is so true. Striving for what you see as impossible now will change you and you see the world in a totally different perspective”

“That’s why I’ll always keep pushing myself. That is something I want to give back to people and that’s why I love to encourage people to breakthrough their perceived barriers and limits or show them how valuable their health and body is”.

“Body Expert Systems stands for all those things. Every person is unique; how they move and work from the inside”.

“I feel blessed that my work is what I love. I just want to inspire people form inside and outside. Now I work with Body Expert Systems, helping people get in shape and educating them on correct scientific nutrition and exercise principles”.

Mijana Berberovic – Body Expert CoachMia was born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“€œI am a proud mother of a teenage son and a happy wife for almost 15 years. After moving away from Bosnia and gaining a significant amount of weight, I turned to a number of high profile websites for advice and programmes but I didn’€™t make much progress. Then I found Body Expert Systems and went through the process of losing 12kg of body fat by making achievable and sustainable positive changes to my lifestyle”

“My experience with Body Expert Systems, and my trainer Phillip Kelly, prompted my decision to become a fitness professional. Through my personal experience, I know the challenges I went through and I use that experience to get results for my clients.”

Mia has aspirations of writing a book of recipes for healthy living and weight loss. Her passion for food has guided her to reinvent many of the good old recipes from her country by making them healthier and suitable for fat loss.

“My goal is to improve the health and lifestyle of each client individually, as well as to educate and motivate them, all the while meeting their needs and wishes. I genuinely care about the person and want them to experience the benefits I have achieved”
