I am Donald Ravenscroft, the founder of CrossFit Plett and your Head Coach. Allow me to share a bit about my background in sports and fitness.


For over 12 years, I was a member of the National and Olympic squads, and I achieved qualification for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games in the sport of Taekwondo. My journey in the Health and Fitness industry spans more than 16 years, during which I’ve served as a Pilates teacher, remedial massage and exercise therapist, and an athlete.


Today, I work as a Physical Exercise Specialist, Personal Trainer, and CrossFit Coach. My expertise lies in Corrective Exercise Therapy, particularly in addressing neck, back, and spine pain and injuries. I collaborate with individuals of all ages, guiding them toward healthier and more sustainable lifestyles and fitness habits. My aim is to empower them to live each day with increased vitality, energy, and vibrancy.


My career began by working with individuals who had suffered brain injuries, using Taekwondo as a means to teach, rehabilitate, and train them. Subsequently, I became a certified Pilates teacher under Stott, proficient in floor, mat, and reformer Pilates. My current focus centers on functional movement and performance, incorporating various fitness approaches, including Kettlebells, CrossFit, CrossCore-180, Pilates, and Trigger Point Therapy, among others.


I firmly believe in holistic well-being, addressing the entire body. Daily, I encounter people who aspire to be a bit lighter, fitter, or stronger. My mission is to facilitate these improvements by enhancing balance, movement, strength, speed, agility, mobility, flexibility, and overall body performance.



My daily work revolves around assisting our clients in achieving strength and balance in their lives through their health and fitness journey. In my view, whether you’re an athlete or an octogenarian, the ultimate goal is to infuse your life with more vitality, energy, and zest each day.


I am convinced that to significantly impact people’s well-being, we must reform and revolutionize the approaches and methodologies of the health, fitness, and medical communities. I believe that CrossFit accomplishes this transformation. At CrossFit Plett, this is my promise to you.


Please don’t hesitate to call or email me if you’d like to get in touch. Alternatively, feel free to visit us in person.


Warm regards,


He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.




Hello, I’m Danette, though most people call me Dani.


I hold a Level 1 CrossFit Coach certification and am diligently pursuing additional qualifications.


My sporting background spans nine years of professional competition in Tug of War, at both the national and international levels. This journey led me to participate in African games in Zambia and Zimbabwe, as well as two World Championships. This sport demanded not only fitness but also teamwork and unwavering dedication.


While initially attending CrossFit classes for personal fitness, I found my calling when I began working at CrossFit Plett / Plett Sports Clinic. It was here that I fell in love with CrossFit and Fitness and keeping strong and healthy and realized that this was where I truly belonged.


My fundamental belief revolves around helping individuals achieve their utmost potential through hard work and unwavering commitment to reaching their goals. I am deeply passionate about my work and have a special affinity for working with youth. I see fitness as a way of life, especially in the face of the daily pressures we all encounter. It serves as a powerful motivator and keeps bodies in shape for people of all ages, including the older generation.


Beyond coaching, I am also a certified personal trainer and massage therapist, specializing in both relaxation and sports injuries.

I have been a part of the CrossFit Plett community for seven rewarding years and eagerly anticipate the exciting future ahead.
