After almost 18 months I still cannot recommend Paul highly enough. When I started I was lacking energy, eating the wrong things and simply not active enough. I had planned to do 2 sessions for a couple of months and drop down to 1 afterwards. 18 months in I am still there twice a week. Training with Paul is addictive and he is a great motivator (even if his taste in music and appalling singing isn't for everyone!) He does flexible hours which suit me well as I travel for work and usually need to train very early - starting most sessions at 6 am. Facilities at Base 51 are great - it's much easier to focus in a private gym with your own choice of music etc. More...

Each client has their own goals and there are various ways of achieving them. I monitor fitness levels at the first session and fine tune the exercises to each individual's abilities and goals, to the point where they achieve more than they think they can.

Application and following the advice given, without it being a really painful experience...it's actually enjoyable and the benefits always outweigh the effort.

Helping others achieve a greater quality of life. Those who apply themselves actually state their life has changed for the better as a result of their training.

I love helping others and dealing with people. My clients buy into me...I adapt to each individual to ensure we get on and the client enjoys the experience.

I have a greater level of experience than most and I am very easy to get on with. I offer a free taster session so the potential client can see for him/herself. I also provide weekly e-mail newsletters which includes fitness tips and healthy recipes.
