Julia Aimers (BA Rec Admin, Certified Exercise Physiologist) is a NCCP Level 1 Triathlon Coach and Level 2 Technical Road Cycling coach. She has completed her NCCP Swim Coaching course and is an Ottawa, Ontario based coach who uses the Total Immersion ™ approach to swimming. Julia's many years of sport encouraged her to realize that Yoga is an important part of the mix so she did her 200 hr Yoga Alliance Teacher Training and specializes in teaching Yoga for athletes. Julia earned the highest designation in fitness testing and personal training in 1990 as a Certified Exercise Physiologist with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology.

In May of 2011, Julia took the 3 day certification course on The Prevention of Running Injuries with Blaise Dubois of The Running Clinic. This course qualifyies her to teach safe running techniques using minimalist running shoes or barefoot running.

She was the Fitness Director at the Ottawa Athletic Club for nine years at which time she opened Personal Best. As a Gold medalist in the 1979 Pan-American Games in badminton, Julia has always understood the importance of striving to achieve your personal best. Since 1995 her company has provided corporate fitness contracts, triathlon coaching and personal training throughout Ottawa. Julia is currently competitive in triathlons, running and bike time trials.

In 2016 Julia was nominated and given an Honourable Mention as Triathlon Ontario's Coach of the Year. Also in 2016 she was awarded the Dave Maskell BUILDER'S AWARD - in recognition of outstanding service to the national capital region's endurance community.

After Julia's dear friend and mentor, Mike Collingwood passed away in December 2006, in memory of Mike, Julia along with Marc Roy of Sportstats became the volunteer race directors for Mike Collingwood's Meech Lake Triathlon.
