Dirranie (or D as she is know in the Box) has always been active and involved in sports.  Growing up in a small country town it was how time was passed!!

She has played sport at all levels from local, to regional, to state and international.  This has given her experience with coaches of different levels and all the different levels of fitness requirements and expectations.

Coaching has always been a passion for D, she started coaching cricket just after leaving high school and has since coached several sports.  A biologist by trade her passion lies in the fitness/sporting realm and this saw her complete her Cert III and IV in Fitness in Oct 2010 and start working as a Personal Trainer outside of her full time job.

In 2011 D was introduced to CrossFit and since then has not looked back, having always used a similar method in her own training and that of her clients the move back to functional movement and high intensity made sense to her.  She loves that there is still so much to learn just as much as she love to see the members at CrossFit Geraldton reach their full potential and become a better version of themselves.

1) 3 Words to Describe yourself: Enthusiastic, Patient, Bubbly

2) Why CrossFit? Its always challenging – mentally and physically

3) Why Coaching? Coaching is incredibly rewarding – It is great to watch people begin to move again and realise how strong they are while conquering their physical and mental battles.  And seeing the CrossFit kids begin ( and enjoy!) their lifelong fitness journey always makes me smile 🙂

6) Coaches Tip:  Be kind to yourself – Give the best you can for that day and you never know you might surprise your self! And let yourself rest and recover (moblise!)

 

LUCI CLEGHORN

QUALIFICATIONS

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer 2021

First Aid

Current Working with Children

Luci was one of the original members of CrossFit Geraldton in 2012, she started CrossFit to be fit and prepared for the career she was pursing. That career took Luci out of Geraldton for several years, but on returning she re-joined us and continued her pursuit of fitness and health. Luci loves to lift heavy things, and also has an interest in working with the older population.

1) 3 word to describe yourself: Caring, Honest and Loyal


2) Why CrossFit? Because it gave me the ability to achieve in life. The ability to adapt and overcome. It has taught me self awareness and that strength extends a lot further than just what you can pull off the floor.


3) Why Coaching? It is a natural progression for me and after ten years of CrossFit I want to be able to give others what I was given all those years ago.


4) Least Favourite Workout? Eva, I still have nightmares or anything with heaps of running and toes to bar.


5) Favourite Workout? Santora, love hero WODs or big chippers with a heavy barbell.


6) Coaching Tip: Chat less, move more and care.

RUSSELL TRURAN

QUALIFICATIONS

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer 2022

First Aid

Russell has been a member of CrossFit Geraldton since 2014. Looking to get fitter for life and to shed some unwanted kilos. Russell nearly started his coaching journey in 2016 but his work took his time for a few years. Russell has a good eye for movement and likes the workouts that push you out of your comfort zone.

1) 3 word to describe yourself: Honest, Reliable and Stoic


2) Why CrossFit? In the beginning it was to become a fitter, more leaner (more of a self image thing) me, but as time has gone on and I had a break for a few years and a very big change in my personal life, it is more a realization that CrossFit helped me physically but more so mentally. I try to become a better version of myself incrementally day by day. CrossFit is a place I can go to leave all of my feeling out on the floor, be it good or bad. I have formed some life long friendships and a fitness family that I’ve never had before in my life. they push me everyday to become a better version of myself.


3) Why Coaching? I want to give back to all athletes some of what CrossFit has given me. I enjoy seeing all athletes succeed in any challenge that is put in front of them, big or small from their first plate box jump to their first muscle up and all in between.


4) Least Favourite Workout? Anything Body weight or running, I’m built for 4WD not formula 1


5) Favourite Workout? Anything with DB, Barbell or Kettlebell, heavy and a chipper style workout.


6) Coaching Tip: Don’t rush the fundamental movements this is a journey not a race. speed and weight all comes with efficient movement and time.
