Training has always been a huge part of Kirrily’s life, growing up she competed in track & field athletics, representing her small school at State titles from age 11-18. This led on to an interest in Olympic distance triathlon, and sparked her curiosity for getting nutrition right for both training and race days. Currently, Kirrily actively competes in a number of bike racing events throughout the year with the Data #3 women’s cycling team, including the National Road Series.

Being a Personal Trainer over a decade now, Kirrily is not only passionate about health and fitness, but strives for being the best version of herself, inside and out. Looking for a more holistic approach with her clients, she decided a Nutrition and Dietetics degree would do the trick!

With a passion for sports and nutrition, Kirrily had a clear view through years of study that she wanted a career as a sports dietitian – and jumped at any opportunity to volunteer to learn what it was all about (thanks Sal and Ali!).

Work history

Two things I can’t live without are:
Family, friends and my bike (sorry that’s three!)

9am on a Sunday morning, and I am:
At the Northey Street Markets, weekly shop for my fresh fruit and veg. 

My favourite training session is:
Anything that makes me sweat and ends at the coffee shop with friends.

Tea or coffee:
I’m on the fence – like both!

My last meal would be:
A decadent dessert

One thing I wish everyone in the world could know about nutrition is:
Nutrition is not a ‘one size fits all’, everybody is different!

My nutrition philosophy:
Lover of fresh, wholefoods, with lots of colour! I eat the way I do because it makes me feel great, be it for performance or just day-to-day. I understand that as an athlete, or someone looking to improve their health, there are always ‘layers’ to getting nutrition right – we need to take small steps (peel off one later at a time!) to become that better version of our selves.
