Phil Cosgrove
Head COACH & GYM Owner

Email: phil@crossfitmitchelton.com.au

I was a soldier in the Australian Army for 10 years. I have always considered fitness an important part of my life, though I often struggled to find consistency in my training. I discovered CrossFit in 2009 and since then have spent a lot of time researching and trialing various strength and conditioning principles. I have found that the CrossFit methodology best meets the needs of everyone from professional athletes to regular people who want life-long health. The constant variance of the program has kept me intrigued and wanting to train hard for years now. CrossFit really is for everyone.

My goal is to serve the Mitchelton community by offering high level strength and conditioning to all those who want it.

Alex Russell
crossfit coach

  • Crossfitter since 2012

I discovered CrossFit in 2012 when the gym opened next to my footy club of which I played 11 years of rugby league for. Immediately Phil and Lil saw how much interest there was from the players at the club so they started CrossFit kids at Mitchelton not long after and that’s when I found how passionate I was for the sport.

Working my way through kids, pre-teens, teens and finally transitioning into the adult classes which was the hardest step but also the most fulfilling. I strongly recommend CrossFit Mitchelton to anyone wanting to give CrossFit a go because it has changed my outlook on fitness and has given me a second family.

I was a semi/ professional rugby league player for the last 15 years of my life. Playing Queensland cup and professionally in France and have also been lucky enough to represent my Dad’s country the USA at two world cups! I have always considered fitness an important part of my life, though I often struggled to find consistency in my training especially for the football off-season. I discovered CrossFit in 2010 while visiting family in Colorado and since then felt it was the best and most adaptive form of strength and conditioning to the football field. I have found that the CrossFit methodology best meets the needs of everyone from professional athletes to regular people who want life-long health. The constant variance of the program has kept me intrigued and wanting to train hard for years now. CrossFit really is for everyone.

My goal is to coach other athletes like myself from there teen years till they have reached their sporting/ strength/ fitness and lifestyle potential!
