Calisthenics has been my passion since 2006. I love the variety and performing on stage. I obtained my level 1 in 2017, and find it is so rewarding watching the girls go from strength to strength. I love teaching. I am currently studying to become a PE teacher, I also enjoy playing netball, dancing and socialising with my friends. If I could do anything in the world I would live in New York City and perform on Broadway.
Courtney Jeantou - Juniors
I started calisthenics in Tinies in 2004 .There are numerous reasons I've continued to love and commit to calisthenics including, the love of dance, the physical and mental challenges learning new choreography, friendships and health benefits. I am in my 4th year as a coach and have developed a whole new respect for the sport. I am currently studying to become a teacher specialising in Health and PE. I found that I am able to cross over my knowledge from each aspect of my life to ensure I'm the best coach I can possibly be. If I could be anything in the world I would become Santiago from 'Brooklyn nine nine'. She's smart, determined, funny and is lucky enough to hang with Peralta/Andy Samberg all day.
Mackenzie Moreland - Intermediates
I began Calisthenics at the age of 2, I am now 20 and my passion for this sport grows stronger every year. The feeling of being able to express the way I'm feeling without having to speak is unforgettable, the adrenaline that rushes through my body every time I step on stage is absolutely incredible! Now as a coach I get to instill this passion that I have in every girl I teach, and that is why I do it. Throughout my 18 years of Calisthenics I have competed in divisions ranging from 3 to Championship. I have competed in the State Team three times and was selected to perform my graceful solo at Nationals in 2012 & 2015. I am super excited to be a part of the Narre Warren coaching team, and to work with the very talented Intermediate section in 2021.
Jessica Germain - Intermediates
I started calisthenics when I was 3 years old, I did three classes then left. I returned when I was 5 years old and have not looked back. When I was growing up I loved making up pretend routines and I had all the ideas in the world I couldn't wait to become a coach. I have now been coaching since 2007. I love the sport and want to share my passion with other young girls. Outside of calisthenics I am beauty therapist and a mum which doesn't leave much time for hobbies. If I could be anything in the world I would love to be a billionaire, I wouldn't have to work, I could take holidays whenever I felt like it.
Ronnie Pallot - Seniors My mum enrolled me in calisthenics when I was a little girl, 37 years later and coaching for the last 22 years I am still as passionate as ever. I love everything about calisthenics and I want the girls that I coach to love it with the same passion that I have. When they do, it makes all the time and hard work worth it. Outside of calisthenics I am a primary PE teacher. I love reading, swimming and socialising with friends. If I could do anything in the world, I would love to get paid to try out holiday destinations.
Kimberley Walkerden - Masters & Tinies I love calisthenics and I love working with kids. Calisthenics has been apart of my life for the last 47 years. I have been truly blessed to have coached for 36 years. I have seen students learn to count, learn their left from right and watched them grow up into beautiful young women who are still competing in Inters, Seniors and Masters. I have coached every section and like John Farnham I keep coming back from retirement - being on stage is so rewarding. Outside of calisthenics I am a safety consultant, love to cook and walk my dog, Tilly. If I could have been anything in the world I would have loved to have been a mum, but I have a husband, my fur baby and calisthenics family. I've realised not being a mum doesn't define you as a woman, but being a coach has definitely defined me. For this I am grateful.
Andrea Cheniart - Masters
My love of Calisthenics started over 18 years ago when I started as a Sub Junior. I literally live and breathe calisthenics, it brings me so much happiness and it is why over the years I have also assisted with the Sub Juniors, Juniors, Inters and Masters. In 2020 I became a level 1 coach, I did so because I want to share my love and experience of calisthenics with others and see them develop into the best they can be. Outside of calisthenics I am a Human Resources Manager. If I could do anything in the world it would be to play with puppies everyday because who doesn't love puppies?!
