Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m a 30 year old who loves to have a chat and is always up for a laugh. I work as a dentist and I am part owner of Plaza Dental Care where I spend most of my time so I enjoy ending my day with a workout.

When did you start Crossfit?
I started in October 2013. Jodie kept telling me to give it a go and told me I would love it, she was right and I wish I had started sooner!
My favourite WOD is:
Anything with running and I do enjoy a challenging hero WOD
My lease favourite WOD is:
Anything with squat snatches
My favourite movement to do at the moment is: 
Double Unders
If there was one movement to be banned at CFP it would be:
Squat snatches
After my first CrossFit workout, I felt:
My 2014/2015 goal is:
To improve my mobility and work on kipping pull ups
My advice to new members would be:
You never finish a workout regretting it so always give it a go and just keep working on being the best you can be, and most importantly have fun.
Something you might not know about me is?
I plan to get a private pilot’s licence at some stage, I have always been keen on aviation and it’s just something I want to do!
If I was to create a WOD called the ‘Narelle’ it would be?
A partner workout:
4 rounds:
50 double unders
40 power cleans  40/30kg
30 Kettlebell Swings 24/16kg
20 Sit ups
10 Deadlifts 100kg/70kg
One partner does a 200m run while the other does burpees
