As an avid sportsman at school and then whilst in the forces, fitness has always been important in Paul’s life. A serious back injury made Paul unable to participate in most sports and took a large part of his life away. He started working with a personal trainer in the Highlands of Scotland to help with his international archery career. Not only did his trainer help with his archery but totally changed his life by giving him the mobility and pain free movement that he had missed for many years. Because of the results Paul achieved, he felt that he wanted to help people in the same way. Despite his age, he booked a course with one of the top training companies in the UK and qualified as a level 3 Personal trainer. Because of his thirst for knowledge he took a course as a nutritional therapist which, he felt, was the final piece of the jigsaw. Working as a trainer in a large and well known gym in the Highlands of Scotland gave Paul the opportunity to work with a large and varied spectrum of clients. This included professional footballers, international rowers and swimmers as well as members of the general public, of all ages, shapes and sizes.
Paul also qualified as an archery coach and as the founder of the Highland Archery club, was able to enhance his teaching skills. He is now in a position to help you with your goals, whether it is sport specific or just for health and wellbeing.
He has been teaching classes at Reshape and Rumble since it opened here in Gibraltar and was the first person to complete the Med Steps 10 times in one day, raising money for Cancer relief. He also worked with the then Miss Gibraltar to help her to do the same some four months later.
Pauls programmes are determined by your goals and he hopes that he can make the difference to his customers lives in the same way that personal training transformed his life. He believes that his age and life experience has given him an advantage in being able to help all sorts of people attain their goals.
Paul learned at an early stage in his career that ‘Not all trainers are the same!’
