My name is Di Crisp, I currently live in Newman.

I have been at the Newman Aquatic Centre for 18 months, after moving from Alice Springs, but am now concentrating on building my Personal Training business and have the chance to do more training as a Community Trainer with Royal Life Saving WA.

I have been in the Aquatic Industry for 30 years, and have been a registered fitness professional for over 10 years.

I have managed remote and regional pools in Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia, and have had the unique opportunity to see and enjoy parts of the country most will never have access to, and to meet inspiring people out there making positive changes to peoples’ lives. Leave a good footprint.

Before leaving Alice, I was Community Development Officer for Royal Life Saving NT, and travelled remotely delivering programs.

I loved passing skills on whether it was Swim and Survive, Pool Lifeguard and First Aid or running a community Pool Lifesaving Carnival, it was challenging and worthwhile. I am passionate about fitness, my background is endurance sports, on water and land.

Having lived in the desert for so long I have enjoyed pool life (my office really!) I have coached and competed in two National Pool Lifesaving Championships with Team NT, my age group title still holds (I’m a bit like the Steven Bradbury of Pool Lifesaving…but I don’t mention that – age sometimes has it’s advantages, I can live with that.)
