Ivona, Coach

Ivona, also known as gym mom, or the real boss of BPM, found her love of fitness in the same community she now coaches. With a Masters in Environment and Resource Management and a BSc in Biochemistry, this scientist is not from your typical fitness background. Her love for a solid sweat transferred some of those brains to brawn and when not attending classes herself, you can find the HYROX Certified coach cheering you on in a workout. Suggest a good read and you might just get out of doing burpees!

Sage, Studio Supervisor

Sage grew up playing every sport under the sun, but her main focus was competitive cheerleading, which means she can do a backflip and has a knack for hard work. She has traded lifting people for lifting weights, but her real playground is the outdoors, from rock climbing to road cycling. When she is not climbing rocks, shredding waves, or tripping over roots on hiking trails, you will find her at UVic studying her never-ending Kinesiology notes. If you ever need a break from gym talk, just ask Sage about her cat Chapo. Trust us, you will get a front-row seat to an endless slideshow of orange cat pictures. Looking for a laugh while getting your sweat on? Sage is your gal, as she will probably be in the corner dancing along to the coach’s tunes.

Jules, Trainer, Coach

Coach Jules became a Certified Personal Trainer in 2021 due to gym closures during the pandemic. In her own words, ” Fitness has always played a strong part in my mental health, and when the pandemic hit – the first thing I did was create a home gym. I wanted to help people adapt to their new environments, and show them they were still capable of reaching their goals. 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.

Xia, Treat Tester

Xia is BPM’s official Puppy Ambassador and self-appointed treat tester. When she’s not barking at clients to work harder she can be found napping on equipment, doing tricks (for treats of course), and ignoring all the commands her dad (Coach Keeks) and mom (Coach Ivona) give her. If you’re lucky, you might catch Xia at class performing paws squats, or working on her pawsture, but always with a pawsitive attitude.
