“Jules has been working with my wife and I since the middle of November. My range of motion has increased dramatically. This is very important since I'm having double knee replacement this month. I have also had the added benefit of losing 30 pounds.”

“Jules is an excellent trainer and a lovely person. She establishes your goals and expectations and keeps you motivated by tracking your progress and highlighting it as you go. She's always positive and pushes you to your personal limits while being mindful of any limitations or injuries you may have. I've found her to be a wealth of knowledge in her field; any questions I have had she's always been able to address. Jules is extremely professional- always punctual and very aware of your time. She takes a personal interest in your well being- any time I'm sick or hurt she has checked in on me. It's very encouraging to have someone supporting your fitness goals like Jules. She works you hard but makes it fun, I always look forward to our workouts together. I highly recommend her!”
“Juliet Gould has been my personal trainer for a long time. I came to her needing exercise and strength training. I have MS and she went out of her way to research the right way to train me so I would get the most benefit from it. She not only works you out to the best of your ability but also takes the time to know your limitations and all the while makes you laugh. She is knowledgeable in her field and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her.”
“I have been working out with Jules for 7 weeks.. OVER SKYPE!! She has a real gift for Skype training. She manages to push me just the right amount despite not being with me in person. She measures my exertion and comfort level and pushes me just the right amount. Jules takes health and safety very seriously which I appreciate. I feel very comfortable pushing myself with her direction. I call her workouts a "quiet butt kicking". She blends just the right amount of encouragement and push. I end up exhausted and sore in a good way, without ever getting crazy or pushing to where I'm uncomfortable or unsafe. Jules has changed up my workout every week, has measured my (noticeable!) progress, and she has given me great customized workouts to do on my own. I highly recommend Jules for Skype training!!”
“Juliet is a very committed trainer with my result as her top priority. She listens intently so the training session is enjoyable and fun, while maximizing every moment. Her selection of each exercise for the workout helped to challenge and strengthen me. She was able to target a variety of muscle groups adding music to keep the energy up!! I truly appreciated her being punctual, contacting me between our sessions together and her upbeat attitude. As a wellness coach she reinforced to get the best result, 80% is nutrition/20% fitness!!!”
“Juliet has worked with me at my home 2x a month for the last 3 months. I wanted help to increase my strength, stability and flexibility. Jules has given me a wealth of various different techniques to target specific areas which I can work on to improve. Of these have been 3+ ways to work on improving my core strength. I have learned yoga moves as well. It has been great to learn so many things that I can do at home without machines. I now have a printed out list of suggested alternative activities and exercises that I can do regularly at home. Jules and I have also discussed my diet and nutrition needs and how to improve them. I have enjoyed the time that Jules has worked with me and know that I will continue to benefit from it.”
“For the past two years, I have had weekly hour-long workouts with Juliet. It’s been a great experience for me. Juliet always took care to design workouts that perfectly suited my needs. She has been mindful of limitations that must be allowed for when working with a senior citizen. Juliet has guided me to development of upper body strength that I never had before. Now I feel greatly improved in my overall fitness. Juliet goes about her work as a trainer with great professionalism. Juliet has the ability to design programs to suit any client.”
“I supervised Juliet for 2 years. As a Personal Trainer, Juliet was very attentive to all her clients. Her workouts were creative and never boring. If a client had a special physical need or requirement, Juliet researched it diligently to be sure she was maximizing their workouts. As a result, she had a very high repeat of clients that continued to sign up for her services. ”
