MEET YOUR CENTRAL OUTBACK CROSSFIT COACHES

SAI FITISEMANU

Sai is owner and one of the coaches of Central Outback CrossFit. Sai has loved sport and fitness since her teenage years. Pursuing Tertiary studies after high school in Exercise Science and Injury Rehabilitation.

As a true believer in moving well and often Sai has enjoyed and trialled various methods of training, settling more on CrossFit when she first discovered it in 2013.

 

Sai believes anyone can have a go and indeed this is what makes crossfit such an adapatable program, in the words of crossfit founder Greg glassman, "The needs of the elderly and professional athletes vary by degree, not kind. Where one needs functional competency to maintain independence, the other needs functional mastery to maintain dominance." Since it's inception in early 2017 Central Outback Crossfit has helped 100's of members of all ages, fitness levels and abilities gain confidence and move well.

TREVOR KERR

Trevor has always had a passion for health and exercise. Whilst working as a personal trainer he discovered Crossfit and after completing his Lvl1, began applying its fundamentals to his clients, including high risk, people with injuries as well as athletes and sporting teams. Achieving great results not only in the gym, but also helping improve people’s lives.

 

Trevor brings a variety of experiences having having served in the military and trained with some of Australia’s top Crossfit coaches and athletes. “It’s all about community and enjoying the journey with like minded people.”

JACKIE CHILES 

Jackie has an extensive background in specialised sports but has come to find that training in CrossFit fits best with his generalist nature. Bored with his powerlifting program and suffering from lingering injuries and mobility restrictions, starting CrossFit in 2019 has helped to rebalance and rehab his body, helping him to feel stronger and fitter than ever before.

 

The thing he most enjoys about being a member at COCF is the fun-loving and hard working community forged through the fires of intense training. 

 

The element he loves the best about coaching is working with members to achieve coordination, mobility, and power improvements from all starting points using the humble barbell.

 

As a junior he participated in state and national Olympic Weightlifting training and competition, through his early and mid twenties he competed as a cyclist in the Velodrome, on the road, and on the trails. In his late twenties and early 30s, he played American Football.

 

Falling in love with weightlifting again through CrossFit(20 years between lifts!), Jackie is now the Barbell coach at COCF and undertaking his CrossFit Level 1 Coaching course.

SONJA KERR

Shane is a massive Crossfit fan-boy! He visited Central Outback Crossfit on opening day, kept on turning up everyday to train... and basically lived at the box. So, we gave him a job! 

 

In 2011, he discovered Crossfit at Crossfit Active in Sydney. This was a life-changing moment and he has been obsessed with Crossfit ever since. Whenever he has spare time, he likes to nerd out on watching Crossfit Youtube videos or listening to Crossfit podcasts. He traveled to spectate at the 2018 Crossfit Games in Madison, Wisconsin, USA and even orchestrated a marriage proposal at a lunchtime class at the Central Outback Crossfit. 

 

Shane’s special interest is Olympic weightlifting. He has competed in a NT weightlifting Association (NTWA) meet, has attended multiple courses and regularly coaches COCF Barbell Club. He has also travelled to China for a 2-week weightlifting camp. 

 

Shane battled with obesity since childhood and has tried many different diet and exercise programs. He now has a much healthier relationship with food and exercise. Shane truly believes that Crossfit can improve a person’s quality of life and well-being.
