Getting Started


Cobi Head

Owner / Head Trainer – CrossFit Abode

I have always loved being fit and decided to pursue it as a career in the Army, after spending four years in the Infantry I transferred to be a Physical Training Instructor (PTI). In 2009 we found CrossFit and opened our first affiliate in 2010, CrossFit Albury Wodonga, which we regretfully sold in 2012.

I spent 9 years as a PTI and always worked as a CrossFit Trainer in my spare time at CrossFit Brisbane and then Head Trainer of CrossFit Dromana and CrossFit Top End. During this time I completed; CrossFit Level 2, Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certificate, CrossFit Strongman, CrossFit Olympic Weightlifting, CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Mobility, The Gymnastics Course, Pendlay Olympic Weightlifting, Klokov Olympic Weightlifting, Hangstrong Gymnastics, and many more fitness, leadership and coaching courses. As well as invaluable experience working with allied health professionals and in recovery/rehabilitation.

In 2017 I started CrossFit Abode and in 2018 resigned as a PTI. I have had many amazing experiences in CrossFit through competition, coaching and hosting Australia’s premier CrossFit competition, The Down Under CrossFit Championship.

I have a passion for health and fitness and so nutrition is big part of what I offer, being Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified. I bring a motivating, enthusiastic, experienced and empathetic style of Training to the NT and my main goal is to help people have fun and move well in training to achieve all their fitness goals and aspirations.

I stumbled across Crossfit in 2010 and it literally changed my life. Three classes in and I was hooked. The structure, the variety, the atmosphere, the unknown; all things that excited and terrified me at the same time.

Two years into regular training, I completed my CFT L1 and began studying, coaching and helping people achieve things they never thought possible. CrossFit has assisted my family through harder times, providing both of my daughters with a supportive environment, inclusive community, and a safe haven through their turbulent teenage years.

I am currently CFT L2 certified and recently obtained a distinction as a Functional Gymnastics Trainer. I have coached regularly for 7 years and am passionate about functional fitness for life, believing and advocating that being routinely active and physically challenged benefits all aspects of a balanced lifestyle.

No matter what is happening outside of the box, that one hour of fun gym time should be something you can count on each day to leave you feeling better in some way. Crossfit Abode provides continuous training and education for both members and coaches and I enjoy the dynamic environment within the diverse coaching team. My aim is to make all members – regardless of their fitness level – feel capable, supported, included and challenged.

I’m still excited and terrified by CrossFit every single day and so long as those feelings continue, I will keep showing up and doing my best to add value – and of course, a generous dose of humour – to every single class.

In 2014 I decided to turn my life around with fitness. I gained my Cert III and IV in fitness and began looking for where I belonged in the fitness industry.

2015 saw me getting back into a local CrossFit box after I had already tried it some years prior. This is where I met Cobi and when I knew my passion belonged with CrossFit.

I gained my Level 1 that year and began my mission to become a great CrossFit Trainer and to encourage people to realise that anybody can do it.

Cobi instantly became my mentor and has been part of my journey ever since.

Also completing CrossFit Weightlifting Course and Australian Weightlifting Federation Level 1, I am constantly developing my skills to bring the best out in everyone.

CrossFit Abode has helped to build my character in many ways and with its help, I am now a full time Firefighter with the NTFRS. I also have the added benefit of being a Trainer at Abode.

My main aim of every class is to make everyone and anyone feel completely welcome and comfortable with any situation. I aim for everyone to have as much fun as possible whilst training safely. Taking a class is always the best part of my day as I love seeing people achieve things that they didn’t think were possible.
