Meet the Wyn-PT Team
- My interest in personal training, fitness, health and wellbeing has developed over a ten-year period. In my PT sessions, I focus particularly on providing a quality-based, personalised approach that meets the needs of people of all ages. I believe it is particularly important to maintain high standards, acting ethically and having a positive impact in the community, helping people achieve their health, wellbeing and fitness goals. I combine my Personal Training with Yoga and Pilates, enabling people to come into the awareness that allows them to bring about change and wisdom in their lives. My motto is “Challenge and Change” – only when we challenge ourselves do we being to change.

- Hey! My name is Patrick and I’m one of the personal trainers and fitness coaches here at WynActive.
My journey within the gym began in my late teens, however my ability to gain muscle and size was something I struggled with over several years. Through research and guidance, I recognised that my mindset needed to change. I decided that I would start taking my approach to the gym more seriously and in turn, results quickly followed. I had developed a passion for training and further broadened my knowledge in order to achieve my goals. This led me to get my Cert IV in Fitness.
So what now? I want to share my skills and knowledge to help you achieve your goals and live a happier, healthier, more confident lifestyle.
Check out my Instagram @pe.strength where you will be able to find free eBooks and content I have created which can help you reach your goals.

I love every component of fitness. I love to educate, not train.
My love for health and fitness didn’t suddenly appear the day I won my first gold medal in the 100m Sprint at the age of three. It didn't suddenly appear while watching the movie 'Thriller in Manila'. I am genetically engineered this way. Next time you see in my natural habitat, come say hi to 'The King' and I will guide you to the right path!

While working as a Fitness Coach at WynActive, I spend time at the Victorian Institute of Sport as a Strength and Conditioning (S&C) intern while also being active in my community, working as a S&C coach at my local football club. I completed a double degree in a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science/Business (Sport Management) at Deakin University.
From 2018-2020, I worked for the Geelong Football Club within their high-performance team, while also gaining experience with younger athletes through my work at youth academies and local football clubs. Through this, I have developed a strong coaching eye and I implement an evidence-based approach in my practices.
I specialise in working with field-based athletes (football, soccer, basketball etc) but have also found great enjoyment and success in improving the health and well-being of people who experience back pain and work office jobs. I look forward to building strong relationships with clients of any background to help them reach their fitness goals.

- I grew up in Aotearoa (New Zealand) as a migrant from Philippines. I grew to love Rugby Union in which I played during my younger years, until I found my passion for Muay Thai. I did Muay Thai with some freestyle wrestling, then eventually got into the gym to improve my sport performance. That’s where I discovered my passion for Olympic Weightlifting.
These are some of achievements in the Fitness and Olympic Weightlifting (OW) world:
• In my first year of OW, I qualified for New Zealand (NZ) nationals, and coming 3rd place.
• I achieved National Gold Medal for NZ in the 69’s category in 2018.
• Whilst living in Australia in 2018, I made the national Olympic Weightlifting team for New Zealand, competing at 69kg in the Oceanic Games
• I currently train a variety of athletes outside of Wynactive as a Strength & Conditioning Coach
• I have trained an athlete of mine to qualify for Victoria State Championships
• I am in the process of becoming a National level or an International level Australian Weightlifting Coach
I have been a Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor and a Strength Coach for 8 years. I have worked with people from all levels of fitness, from uneducated to advanced. I work with those who are willing and driven to make a change; I have the experience that caters to those who want to better themselves and make a difference!

Namaste. My name is Miral Shah!
Since I was a child, I always participated in different sports and excelled at them. I reached State Level in Kabaddi (an Indian sport). I have been around the gym and group fitness classes for over 10 years. My love for sport led me closer to the fitness industry, where I completed my Intensive Mat Plus and Advance Mat Pilates with Stott Pilates (Canada). When I moved to Australia, I completed my Fitness Coach & Personal Training course, and I am loving every minute of it! Apart from fitness, I love cooking, shopping and listening to music. I enjoy helping people build inner strength, weight loss and toning muscles by individualizing programs according to my client’s goals!

- G’day! My name is Josh, and I’m a Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach here at Wynactive.
Having played sport (mainly Australian Rules football) for the majority of my life, I have developed a love for fitness and for seeing what each individual is capable of achieving physically.
Having completed my Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science, and most recently my Masters in Strength and Conditioning, I specialise in strength and power training, athletic development and sports performance.
I have previously worked with Williamstown Football Club, and currently with Essendon Football Club in the VFL, as well as a number of other strength and conditioning roles. I was also involved in the development of the WynYouth Fitness and Development Program.
Outside of the gym, I love music, surfing, getting outdoors and hanging out with mates!
With a Masters in Strength and Conditioning, I like to use an education-based approach to my training, focusing on improving an individual’s physical capacity, as well as teaching them the theory behind why we do what we do and why it works. I also focus on mastering the fundamental movements of strength training.
So if you’re an individual who is looking to improve your performance in any sport, or you want to enhance your strength, I’m keen to be on board!
Reach out to Josh
I never enjoyed exercise as a young kid and would make every excuse you could think of to avoid it, but now it’s become a part of my life that I love. Knowing the mindset of someone who avoids exercise puts me in a great position to help others with their fitness goals and it makes me so proud to see people trying. It’s these same people who inspire me to get in the gym every day. I’m studying Clinical Exercise Science at uni – I love all things science – and my favourite topic is rehabilitation. Being a foodie I also love to learn about nutrition. That being said, I have a major coffee addiction – I can’t function without one – and I absolutely love burgers… enough said. Before science and exercise came into my life, I played the piano and have played for the last ten years. I’m obsessed with animals and I also love to travel. If I could, I would travel the world tomorrow. I love spending quality time with my family and one of my goals is to compete in powerlifting some day.

Hi! I’m Roxanne, a Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach at Wynactive. Sports and exercise have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Ever since my Dad took me to my first athletics training session, fitness and physical health have held a special place in my heart and life. Originally from England, I studied a BSc in Exercise, Physical Activity and Health before setting off to travel the world for a few years. I eventually found my way to Australia and fell in love with this country and am now so proud and happy to call it home. I strongly believe that nutrition goes hand in hand with exercise, so I am continuously studying and researching human health and diets to compliment my training programs. It is my passion for health and fitness that drives me to coach others. It brings me a true sense of accomplishment and happiness to see my clients progress and reach their goals. After competing as an athlete I know what it takes to prepare for big events, so if that’s your goal, I can take your training to the next level. I design every session to suit the individual. Whether you’re on a weight loss journey, wanting to increase muscle mass or simply want a friendly and supportive fitness partner to motivate you, no goal is out of reach if we work together.
