Trainer Profiles

John Coad


I just love CrossFit, it's heaps of fun and yields the best fitness results against any other fitness/strength and conditioning program I've ever tried. I've trained at other commercial gyms and got bored and stagnant. This is constantly evolving and can challenge you ever day in ways you normally wouldn't push yourself... I'm a proud father of 2 beautiful girls and wouldn't be where I am today without my wife Sarah. I raced motocross for 10+ years and have competed at state and national events, as well as a keen interest in surfing, cycling (MTN/Road) and anything competitive and look to build a positive and happy culture of athletes of all abilities, enjoying our gym and CrossFit respectively.

Sarah Coad


I have worked in the fitness industry for 7+ years. Upon being introduced to CrossFit I was blown away and loved the community side of everything. This is a great way to train, also a fantastic way to enjoy training with everyone else in the group. As a mother of 2 it's awesome to see Mums getting back into fitness and getting their confidence back.

My passion for CrossFit began after doing my first WOD at CF189 in February 2013.

What I love about CrossFit is there are so many elements and skills to learn that you never get bored, you're constantly challenged and humbled and you can achieve far beyond wht you believe you're capable of doing, all while having fun.

I enjoy competing and have been competitive in a number of sports including horse riding, netball, touch football, martial arts and competitive bodybuilding. However, I quickly found CrossFit to be my sport of choice...

As passionate as I am about competing, I'm just as passionate about sharing it. I love helping people learn and improve skills, achieve goals, become stronger and more confident.
