Hi there all DWR’s,

I’m so excited to have the opportunity to help you along the way on your journey of fitness. I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself and give you a bit of an idea of my sporting/coaching background.

I am a wife and Mom of two gorgeous kids, Jordan (daughter, age 6 and son, Kyle age 4) and work part-time as a Natural Health Advisor for Blackmores. I come from a rather ‘competitive’ sporting background – initially hockey representing South Africa at a state and national level. I coached hockey in England for a year , also took indoor bike sessions and worked as a fitness instructor in South Africa. However, a serious back injury resulted in ending my hockey career and I have had to have two back operations(the latter being a spinal fusion).

Upon arriving in Australia three and a half years ago I thought I would give triathlon a go and absolutely loved it – I have completed numerous 70.3’s and have the ticked the box of achieving a sub five hour half ironman. However, due to injury I can only water run for my run training and so I test all the sessions I coach on myself. I am a qualified Triathlon coach and also a school ambassador for Triathlon Western Australia (offering coaching clinics to primary schools). I am passionate about healthy living and assisting others in achieving the exercise goals.

I hope to offer you fun, yet structured sessions with a focus on technique and maximum benefits for your training and goals.   Looking forward to see you in the pool soon.

Yours in Deep Water Running

3 Brains… & I can’t engage any of them!!!

Thanks to the new DWR’ing coach Natalie Britz who so aptly put it on Tuesday’s session as I struggled to explain part of the session…  Yes I have 3 brains (I’m expecting twins early in 2015), and definitely can’t put any of them to good use…

So it is definitely time to pass the coaching over to Nat!  She will be coaching from Tuesday onwards, however I will be running the final 3 Sunday Sessions from 3-4pm.  Please continue to participate and support AND SPREADING THE WORD about all the benefits of Deep Water Running.

This will be my final Blog post and I would like thank everyone for coming along and enjoying the sessions – it has been great to meet you all and be apart of your training &/or rehabilitation.

I will be leaving you in more than capable hands – Nat’s awesome, inspirational, and she definitely has the results to prove it!

So get yourself along on Tuesday from 5.45-6.45pm and introduce yourself to Nat :).

Thanks everyone!

Are you coming on Sunday?

If you plan on coming along to the 4 week course starting Sunday and need to hire a floatation belt please RSVP to me via facebook, email or text – 0405 493 077.

Bring with you:

1. Your usual swimming gear plus a hat if it is sunny.

2. A water bottle

3. Your floatation belt if you have one – if you don’t let me know so I know how many to bring along.  (If you want to purchase one, you can place an order with me on Sunday for $25).  A pool noodle works too – especially if you are pregnant.

4. Money for pool entry.

You will find us at the 30m outdoor pool at Beatty Park, just look for the group with foam belts.

If you have any questions, just ask – 0405 493 077.
