Julian Lim, Msc, CSCS*D

Strength & Condtioning Coach


Julian has been involved in high performance strength and conditioning for the past 12 years for elite, national and amateur level athletes. This has given him extensive skills and experience in the field of sport performance conditioning and research development.


He was a full-time strength and conditioning coach at the Singapore Sports Institute for the past 8 years. His past experience in coaching badminton, basketball, bowling, gymnastics and track and field athletes has assisted him in developing evidence-based training programs, specifically through the development of power, speed and quickness.

Most recently, he was the strength & conditioning manager at Sportsline Asia, overseeing the training delivery and coaches at its facilities in Hong Kong and Taiwan.


Currently, he is the performance manager at EXOS, leading human performance training, programming, teams and facilities across the Asia-Pacific region.


Julian has also completed his master degree in strength and conditioning research, investigating the effects of post-activation on maximal sprint performance of Singapore’s national track and field athletes. His post-graduate studies had enabled me to gain knowledge in the area of strength/power performance monitoring (eg. force plate and linear transducer system integrations.) This has translated into scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals investigating the efficacy of PAP protocols in enhancing athletic performance.


He is also a firm believer in movement-based training and prehabilitation through the Functional Movement Screen™ system. This has shaped his coaching philosophy to train athletes with sound movement patterns that reduce injury potential, while enhancing athletic competency.
