Merryn and Ciel
Merryn began coaching and teaching movement capabilities in 1980 when she was 12 years old, in her role as a junior gymnastics coach. Her passion for teaching people how to better move their bodies has not waned over the years; rather it has grown and developed into a successful small business ‘Strength and Mobility’ that she currently manages as a sole trader. Some of her favourite things are spending time with her husband Dave at the coast, listening to music, and following the footy team Canberra Raiders!
Since childhood, Ciel has loved moving her body and the practice of coaching others to do the same. In 2009, she gained her first fitness-related certification, and since then have developed a movement and teaching practice, with accompanying qualifications that include bodyweight and gymnastics strength and conditioning, resistance training, stretching, remedial massage, Stick Mobility and Kinstretch.
