Educated as a physical education teacher, Naimushina married a Latvian cyclist Andris Zelčs-Ločmelis, who was the world junior track champion in 1980, and they moved to Latvia, raising their three children. The couple divorced in 2001 and Naimushina moved back to Russia in 2002, settling in Tula, where she worked as a children’s coach.
