I have been working in the fitness industry for more than 10 years. I know how much exercise is important for you and all the benefits that it will bring to your life. I have a strong focus on helping people from a rehab perspective to get them moving pain free and improving their fitness level.
Johan PalssonOwner Yarraville
Since leaving the IT industry and entering in to fitness, me and the team have helped hundreds of people improve themselves, which is what it’s all about. Exercise is crucial for long term physical and mental health, which is why I started Big 5. Helping the locals become a better version of themselves is my goal.

Katie AdemaCoach Altona North
After working full time in communications for six years, I reassessed what my real passion was and made the big switch into the fitness industry.
I’ve experienced first hand what it’s like to go from a non-exerciser to a gym junkie so I understand the barriers and insecurities there can be for a first timer.
I’m here to show you how exercise can change your life for the better, giving you confidence not only in your physical self but in all areas of your life.
Renee IrvineCoach Yarraville
I am a qualified personal trainer and naturopath (with over 10 years experience as a naturopath).
My own journey to fitness came after having my first son, my body didn’t feel like my own anymore and I was riddled with aches and pains that weren’t there before. Exercise gave me my own time and improved my energy and mental health even on the days where I felt frazzled and tired from parenting all day long.
Now, I predominantly work with other mothers, helping them to find space for themselves to put their health and wellbeing first. I get that it’s hard to find the time or energy sometimes but encourage those who work with me to make them time and carve out a chunk of their day just for themselves. When they do, the benefits are huge.
I am a huge advocate for whole body health, which encompasses physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Exercise is an essential component that keeps all 3 in balance and I encourage movement to be a part of everyone’s day.
Miguel Angel PinzönCoach Altona North
I started my journey back in 2010 covering a shift of a trainer in my old gym while I was studying Physical Education. I fell in love with teaching and helping people to move better which is what I believe it’s all about.
I worked with runners and triathletes where I had great experiences and meet wonderful people. Nowadays I split my time between what I call Community/Functional training at Big 5 AN and strength and conditioning for a Football(soccer) team.
I am more than willing to answer questions, share my experiences or set goals. Currently studying Remedial massage.
