Abi Hammond

Owner & Coach

Abi was introduced to the field of strength conditioning during her career as a professional 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 (CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting, Ultra Marathons, hockey, baseball, soccer) as well as individuals who want to improve their overall health and wellness. Additionally, she has collaborated with local physical therapists to create well rounded programs for those returning to sport or fitness after injury. She uses individual program design along with nutrition and lifestyle consultations to produce a well rounded program for each individual she works with.

She became the owner of OPEX Gold Coast in 2019.

Abi is currently working towards her Master’s of Science in Kinesiology.
