I was a client of Paul for six weeks and trained weekly for all this time except just before and shortly after the births of my two children. Prior to this I was stuck in a rut working hard, drinking red wine every night and getting more and more miserable as my weight increased to 12st and my self confidence was at a low ebb.
As I turned 30 I decided that enough was enough, gave up drink completely and rewarded myself by training with Paul. That was in March 2000. He was recommended to me by a lady who ran a step aerobic class in my home area whom I trusted.
Within weeks of training with Paul I lost the bulk of my weight, which was down to hard work and having a regular appointment. Through the years I trained with him I became stronger, fitter, more physically aware and confident. This reflected on all arrears of my life as well as the general mood lifting affect that exercise has. These factors lead me to giving up smoking year into training with Paul. I went from 40 cigarettes a day to none which I still maintain.
I trained to within 5 weeks of giving birth on both occasions with Paul’s specific knowledge this was not a dangerous thing to do and I’m convinced it help me cope well with labour And the post natal period.
Paul has a very unthreatening and assertive manner and at the same time is able to drive me to achieve over and above my expectations.
For me the most worthwhile things I have taken from my sessions is the ability and confidence to effectively train an area if I want or need to and most importantly he started running with me, a form of exercise reserved as I though for the super fit. I now run 2 – 3 times a week and have done 10k races. It is such a fantastic addition to my life and something I would never have done otherwise.
Paul constantly works to improve his skills which added to the training he can offer, allows him to fine tune the package he can offer to every client.
I would recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their physical fitness, take themselves seriously and can afford to compliment their quality of life
Thanks Paul for helping me move my life forward
