COACHES & STAFF
We are dedicated to helping your children succeed.
Hi my name is Julie! My husband and I opened Air-Bound in 2001 and I have been coaching gymnastics for 27+ years. I have had a love and interest for gymnastics, fitness, athletics and how the body works since I was a young child. I love seeing & helping my students reach their goals and progress on their Athletic journey. I especially love coaching children. I coach the optional program at Air-Bound. When I’m not at Air-Bound I’m busy with my 3 kids, sharing my love for fitness with a client, fitness modeling, training and racing as an OCR elite athlete or trying to find a new epic adventure to undertake.
You may have seen me on TV on Labron James’ “Million Dollar Mile” on CBS.
I can’t wait to share my love for gymnastics with your child.
