She competed in high school gymnastics and track and field.
In 2012, Foucher balanced her first year of medical school and her training for the Games. Even with the time constraints, Foucher was able to earn career bests at every stage of the 2012 season starting with a second place finish worldwide in the Open, followed by her first Central East Regional win in the Individual Division, and culminating with a second-place finish at the Games behind then two-time champion Annie Thorisdottir. Like the previous year, Foucher excelled at the long, grueling beach event at the start of the Games. This time, the "triathlon" took place at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton where athletes swam 700 meters in the rough ocean, mountain biked 8 km, and then ran 11 km over Microwave Mountain and Foucher finished in 2:05.12 for a first place finish. Her worst performances were 27th place finishes on the 80-lb. medball clean and deficit handstand push-up event and on the clean ladder event and a 29th place finish on the broad jump.
Due to the high demands of the second year of medical school, Foucher chose not to compete in 2013. She was named one of the "Most Interesting People" of 2013 by the Cleveland Magazine.
She returned in 2014 determined to win the title "Fittest on Earth", but the top spot on the podium was the only achievement that had eluded her. She worked with Olympian Dominique Moceanu and Ohio State Gymnast Mike Canales and enlisted the help of other world-renowned coaches.
Her final attempt at the title, in 2015, was cut short by a torn Achilles. Foucher tore her Achilles during an event on the second day of the 2015 Central Regional during Event 3. Appearing devastated in video interviews immediately after the injury, it appeared to be the end of her career. However, later that day, Foucher returned to the competition floor wearing a large black medical boot. As the other athletes ran across the competition floor to begin the 250-ft. handstand walk, Foucher walked with the boot jutted out to the side. Even with the injury, Foucher managed to finish in 2:17 for 11th on the event. She continued on to lift, albeit a small load, in the max snatch (85-lb.), and returned the next day to compete in the final events. She earned a remarkable 8th-place finish on the triplet of rowing, chest-to-bar pull-ups, and strict deficit handstand push-ups, and closed out by completing the 15 muscle-ups of the final event while skipping the 5 cleans that followed.
2015 was her last CrossFit Games season; in the future she intends to focus her full attention on her work as a doctor and CrossFit seminar trainer. She says that her ultimate dream is to have a CrossFit affiliate tied to her medical practice, such that there is an open community between both.
In 2017, Foucher matched into residency at Fairview Hospital of the Cleveland Clinic, specializing in Family Medicine.
Currently, Julie Foucher is 34 years, 5 months and 3 days old. Julie Foucher will celebrate 35th birthday on a Tuesday 26th of December 2023.
