Sergiy Gabbe

Owner/Head Coach

Sergiy always had a keen interest in fitness and the amazing feats of the human body. Since he was a youngster, he was involved in many sports like gymnastics, swimming and soccer. After moving from Ukraine to Australia in 2004 and continuing his interest in fitness, he found CrossFit in 2008 and never looked back. CrossFit became his chosen sport, and he has dedicated himself to this since 2011.

In the meantime, he joined the ADF (Army) in 2010 as an Electronics Technician. In his time serving, Sergiy has been posted in various locations around Australia and was deployed to the Middle East. His time in the ADF (Army) has further encouraged his group coaching and functional fitness training and cemented his passion for CrossFit as his priority. He has spent the last few years coaching at various CrossFit gyms while competing recreationally in local competitions.

He is interested in ensuring functional fitness is ‘for everybody’, and this ethos can be felt in the gym and the community built at CrossFit Sunshine Coast.
