Claire Rayner

Stars of Wollongong 2022

Health and Fitness Manager I UniActive - UOW Pulse

Claire is the UOW Pulse UniActive Health and Fitness Manager and is the super woman who manages both the UOW Campus and Innovation Campus gyms. Amongst all her managerial duties, she loves getting out amongst the members and living her passion of promoting all things health and fitness! 

When she isn’t in the gym, you will find Claire engaging in her other passion of running and challenging herself on the trails and road races that the beautiful Illawarra offers!

Claire lost her beautiful dad to bowel cancer when she was only 25, so this cause is close to her heart and will be pushing hard to raise money for continued research and support into all types of cancer. 

Claire is ready to bring her freestyle wedding and club dance moves to the Stars of Wollongong stage this year. She has come on board to not only show her support for Cancer Council NSW but to challenge herself. While she is nervous, there is no way she will let that hold her groove back – she is excited to learn and get out of her comfort zone.

Good on you Claire!
