Danielle Bryan.

B. Hlth Sci (Nut & Ex. Sc.), NSA accredited Nutritionist, UKA Coach in Running Fitness, Athletics Australia Level 2 Advanced Recreational Coach, Cert IV in Fitness, ASCA Level 1 Strength & Conditioning Coach, APPI Matwork and Equipment pilates instructor.

Danielle, known as Dani, has worked in the financial, legal and health sectors for the past 20 years. Her passion for health and fitness led her to create her own business Run Like A Girl Australia in 2017.

Arriving late to the running scene at 23 years old, Dani sought a coach after some physical and mental adversities, which she openly talks about. She completed her first Melbourne Marathon, going on to do New York and London marathons after having her first child.

After having her second child, Run Like A Girl Australia was born. Dani wanted to combine her love of running with community, creating an emotionally safe, inclusive & friendly space for anyone who identifies as female.

She coaches female athletes through training, performance, recovery and sports nutrition, nurturing the reproductive cycle and hormonal fluctuations. Especially important as a mother of two young girls, and a marathoner herself.

She specialises in working with athletes with specific needs such as gastrointestinal issues; sports nutrition; weight management programs; food preparation and cooking classes, education in nutrition, strength & conditioning, prevention, rehabilitation and management; running technique development; endurance coaching and more. Dani is also a ASCA Level 1 Strength & Conditioning Coach and Pilates Instructor, specialising in rehabilitation and providing specific programs and training to mostly runners.

Aside from her owning training, in her spare time, Dani teaches coaching courses for Athletics Australia. She believes that knowledge is power and that these courses are the foundation of good coaching.

With her Working with Children check, she offers running clinics for children of all ages, helping kids realise the joy that comes from working as a group yet individually. These clinics are also open to families for extra fun!

Dani wants to spread the love and support of the squad to other locations in the near future, with the collaboration of like-minded individuals.
