Hi! I'm Jules! Welcome to my little corner of the Internet! I'm so glad you are here!

Hi! I'm Jules! Thanks so much for stopping by The Healthful Peach. I started this online community in February 2016 so I could share my experiences in finding balance in life with food and fitness, and to coach and motivate a healthy lifestyle in others. I am a Certified Personal Trainer, California State University alumni, and a Dietetics Student currently completing the coursework to become a Registered Dietitian.

Many of you may know me in real life (thanks for your support!) and perhaps you just stumbled here from instagram or facebook. I am so glad you are here and I'd love to share a little bit about me. 

I've always had a passion for health and fitness as I started competed in running events in the 5th grade. My love of fitness inspired me to earn my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science and go to work in corporate wellness centers and have been working with clients for ten years. Even with all the knowledge and experience I had, I developed anorexia and bulimia and struggled with eating disorders for nearly 15 years. I kept it a secret until recently when I realized in order to be free from the eating disorder, I needed to stop letting it control me. I shared my story (which you can read about here) and started The Healthful Peach (originally started as Jules Fit Club) to help others along this journey. I began my online training programs in February of 2016 and have been so inspired by those I have met and coached. 

I spend most of my time thinking about food, health, fitness, and science and sharing all of that with anyone who listens. My main focus of The Healthful Peach is to share healthy recipes, along with easy-to-do workouts, and help you create a healthy balance between life, food and fitness. I hope you enjoy my workouts, recipes, encouragements, and posts. Healthful Coaching is for women who need help finding ways to create balance in their life with food and fitness.  

Coaching Philosophies 
 
I started The Healthful Peach to help give you the knowledge you need to get a fit, healthy, strong body without the yo-yo diets and the impossible fitness routines. There are many trainers, coaches, transformation programs to choose from, so why should you choose me? What makes my services different than 24-Hour Fitness, Crossfit, and all the other trainers? 
 
  • I am a coach and a trainer who helps you get long-lasting results. I firmly believe in fitness and nutrition as a way of life. It's not a diet that lasts for 90 days but it's about making food choices that you can be happy with and still see the results you want. 
  • I am passionate and care deeply about my clients. I will be apart of your support system and will make sure you feel supported for as long as you are with me. I will help connect you with others that are walking the same path as you. 
  • I believe that change is possible and I will give you the tools to help make that change happen. I'm an example of change and I'm here to inspire you, no matter how long you have been trying to change. 
  • I'm a mom and I believe in the strength of all moms. All moms are strong in their own special way and that strength drives you day-to-day. Let's use that strength to help you transform your body and your life. 
  • I'm happy with my body and I want you to be, too. It took having a kid for me to finally realize how amazing my body is and how grateful I am for it. I've learned how to love my body, fuel it properly, train it, and to accept natural changes. 
 
A Few Fun Facts About Me
 
  • I have traveled to 49 states and have lived in seven states. The last state that I need to travel to... Maine! The states I've lived in: Utah, Idaho, California, Colorado, Texas, Massachusetts, and Maryland. 
  • I have lost track of the number of races that I have run. I have one marathon, a lot of half marathons, even more 10k's and 5k's. My favorite race distance is the 10-miler. 
  • When I was in the 4th grade, I won an essay contest for saying I wanted to be a meteorologist when I grew up.  Originally, I had prepared to say I wanted to be a teacher but then after listening to every other girl in my class say they wanted to be a teacher, I quickly thought of something else to say and won for creativity. 
  • I have five siblings. I am number two and have one older sister, two younger sisters, and two younger brothers.  
 
While this part of my life has been completely unexpected, I am so incredibly grateful for it and for YOU! None of our online community could be possible without my amazing support.
