Meet Juliette ...
A "downhomer" from Newfoundland, Juliette Hunter is an open, come-as-you-are kind of person with a passion for activity as a life-long pursuit.
Juliette graduated from Acadia University with a Bachelor of Physical Education, and then pursued athletic therapy, earning her diploma in Sports Injury Management at Sheridan College. She recently also qualified as a Registered Kinesiologist with the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario.
As an Athletic Therapist and Kinesiologist, Juliette has practiced her rehabilitation skills in sports injury clinics, gyms, colleges and universities. Before moving to Ottawa in 2005, she was co-owner of an on-site sports injury care company near Oakville, Ontario, where she worked with athletes of all ages and levels, including provincial and national women's hockey.
Combining her rehab skills with personalized training, Juliette has supported a range of individual clients in achieving their fitness goals. She has worked with her clients both in fitness facilities and in clients' homes. She also has extensive experience designing effective, affordable home gyms for her clients.
Juliette is a born teacher, always educating every client and team. Juliette has also taught athletic injury prevention, care, and rehabilitation in the university setting, and loves any opportunity to educate the general public on prevention and recognition of injuries.
