2016 CLAIRE NORGATE

Claire is a yoga teacher, qualified nurse and midwife who has also completed two masters’ degrees and is currently studying physiotherapy. Her appetite for learning is matched only by her passion for sharing her knowledge and experience with fellow fitness professionals.

Having presented at countless FILEX and WAFIC conventions, she brings a dynamic approach to learning concepts that in other hands could be dry and overly-technical. The effort that goes into her presentations is always apparent to those lucky enough to experience them.

Ryan Hogan, Network’s CEO said: ‘Over the years Claire has been so supportive and helpful with our events, continually delivering above and beyond the expectations of a world class presenter. She is unquestionably one of Australia’s – and the world’s – top fitness presenters.’
