I wanted to create a community to help support others, and myself.” Coach Jules loves bringing the heat and energy to her classes. “I would say my coaching style is a mix of functional fitness x strength and endurance. The dancing is optional – but I warn you it’s contagious.” Outside of BPM, you can find Jules golfing, walking her Siberian Husky, Pyshka, & spending time with her loved ones.
