Abi Hammond

Owner & Coach

Abi holds a Master of Science in Kinesiology. She was introduced to the field of strength conditioning during her career as a professional ballet dancer. When a string of injuries sidelined her, she became passionate about fitness after seeing the benefits that her work with a strength and conditioning coach had on her own capabilities.

She works with a broad range of clients who are competitive in various fields (Olympic Weightlifting, CrossFit, Baseball, Softball, Ultra Marathons, Hockey, Soccer) as well as individuals who want to improve their overall health and wellness. Abi also has significant experience in designing “return to play” programs for those returning to sport or fitness after injury.

She founded Gold Coast Strength and Conditioning and Gold Coast Weightlifting in 2019.
