Julian Merola

Julian is the newest member of the PAA team. His role is to manage and develop the organisation’s business development strategies, strengthening our existing relationships and identifying opportunities for partnerships, new providers and increasing memberships.

“Before starting at PAA last year, I had worked on both sides of the fitness fence – running my own business and working in aquatic and leisure facilities. I’ve also worked in the tertiary sector.

“My favourite part of my job is engaging with our registrants. We have a broad demographic, from people just starting out in the industry, to people who’ve been working in fitness for over 20 years. Everyone I speak to has a passion for our industry and their own unique story to tell. It’s great to work for an organisation that has such a strong community focus.

“It’s a real plus that PAA maintains such a strong registrant focus. We’re a great team who all have industry experience and who are dedicated to our mission of helping fitness professionals continue to develop their skills so they, in turn, can help others reach their fitness goals.”
