Living life on the fast lane
Sharing an appetite for life, love and wellness, the founder of Sculpt Club studio, Julia Van Der Drift has become an unwavering force of fearlessness over the years. Living life in the fast lane, most of her days are spent focusing on prioritising the positives and living her life the best she can — always keeping her on a tight schedule. Whether she’s on the go hitting tennis courts, swimming or teaching pilates, she’s constantly maintaining an active lifestyle doing everything she loves.
But, for the trailblazer, pilates remains the kernel of her life. From developing flexibility to strength, control, endurance and a sense of safety, pilates has been a part of Julia’s life since high school. Living in a world that constantly challenges us, finding the essence of safety can be a tough journey, but Pilates has always been a push to create the building blocks she needed to reach her personal and health goals.
“I wanted to do something that I absolutely loved and felt passionate about and health and fitness have always been a huge part of my life. The best part of this whole journey is to be able to help people achieve their goals whether it is to lose weight, recover from an injury or just enjoy some regular and safe exercise,” she said.
Whether she’s curating a fitness program or assessing her clients’ progress, Julia’s goals are always to make sure her clients feel strong and secure. “Safety to me means freedom from harm, and peace of mind when it comes to my day-to-day life,” she said.
Just as safety is paramount in Pilates, it is also crucial on the road. To find a little bit of calm amid my chaotic schedule, Julia is constantly finding new ways to recharge her batteries and find the freedom to do different things that make her happy. So, she’s always on the road healing and leading her life with love and passion. Behind the wheels of the Volvo C40 Recharge pure electric, she finds exactly the pathway that can help carve her life and future. “I feel most confident, comfortable and safe when I’m out and about with Volvo,” she emphasised.
Billed as the first Volvo car designed to be fully-electric from the ground up, Volvo Car Malaysia has thrown everything at this new, range-topping, sustainable, and safe vehicle — a car that is defining the future of electric. The Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric is a smart and versatile pure electric SUV that doesn’t make you choose between power and responsible driving — fuelling the evolution of fully battery-powered electric vehicles by fusing state-of-the-art style, substance, and sustainability. Thus, making it the best vehicle for Julia who is constantly prioritising safety daily.
The electric SUV can also cover more than 400 km on a single charge, while also featuring the ability to fast-charge from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in 28 minutes — making it the best vehicle for Julia to cruise down the highway and get to places she needs to be.
No matter the destination with the help of Volvo’s electric vehicle, the thrill of new possibilities comes with ease for Julia. The more she embraces the wheels of a Volvo, the safer she feels to be in her own skin, and more comfortable for her to carve her own future and the unknown.
