Michael Donnet



Mikey was a gymnast for 18 years representing state and country while also being a member of the Queensland Academy of Sport and Australian Institute of Sport. He started coaching gymnastics in 2004 and throughout his 12 years of coaching has developed multiple Regional, State and Australian Champions. Mikey has coached many  Australian Representatives, most recently taking 3 boys to Las Vegas to compete in the Vitaly Scherbo Cup. 

Since finishing his gymnastics career in 2012 he looked for a new challenge and in mid 2013 started CrossFit. The sport grew on him so much that Mikey decided to become a CrossFit coach which he has been doing since January 2014. Coaching is his life and he certainly coaches that way. Understanding that each individual is different is what coaching is about. Mikey strives each day to ensure that goals and aspirations are met - it's his number one concern.
