Paul’s approach to training is truly personalised. There are no cookie cutter diet sheets (and no arbitrary ban on cookies come to think of it). Workouts, nutrition and all advice is based on listening to what I’ve said. Paul listens, questions, prompts and challenges, all in a calm and highly informed way. I’ve learned a huge amount, and totally changed my relationship with food in a way I didn’t think was possible. In an industry full of BS Paul bucks the trend with his honesty and integrity.

A nutritional Life Coach!! I was very lucky to work with Paul for nearly a year, I have learnt so much in this time. My confidence around food and other areas of my life has grown. Paul approaches his practice from a holistic view point; it's not just about weight & exercise. He provides supports in all aspects of life - physical health & wellness, mental well-being, mindful practice, nutrition & exercise - he is like a nutritional life coach. Paul is very supportive & gives a lot of thought to his clients individual needs. I would highly recommend him if you have a goal in mind or like me unsure of where to begin. My attitude towards food has changed for the better & I feel like I have reconnected with myself. Thank you Paul for your support & wisdom - much appreciated!

Paul was the person I NEEDED to meet in life! He helped me shift my mentality and improve my mindset! I entered my 30s feeling like I was the person I always wanted to be. I appreciate and love myself now. Paul helped me make sense of all that the dieting industry had shoved in my face until I was 28. Paul doesn’t tell you what to do, he guides and supports you. He helps you figure out what you need to know. He doesn’t tell you what to eat or what way to lead your life. He provides strategies to help you take charge of your life. I will forever be thankful to Paul for all the support he gave me, he may never truly understand how much he helped improve my life. Míle buíochas 🙂

I couldn’t recommend Paul enough. He tailors everything so individually to suit you as a person. I went to him with a certain goal in mind but he challenged me to question my goals, always having my health and wellbeing as a priority. He is ethical and his ethos is based on long-term health and sustainability, not just a quick-fix. He will call you out on your BS and challenge your beliefs. He gave me nuggets of wisdom that I needed not only for my health but also for getting the most out of life in general. His outlook on nutrition and movement is refreshing. His replies are prompt and you never feel like you are getting a generic, “one size fits all” response to your needs. He goes above and beyond to make sure you understand your training programme and gives excellent feedback allowing you to progress. I was lucky enough to have had Paul as my coach during a very turbulent time in my life and the support he gave me went far beyond the call of duty. He helped me become a healthier, stronger, fitter person, not only physically, but mentally also. I know I’ll be working with him again, as there is so much to learn from him.

I worked with Paul for quite a while and can’t thank him for the education he provided during this time. Paul is a personal trainer, but in reality he is so much more. I can’t convey into this simple review all he taught me, but his overall attitude to my experience and goals were faultless. He brings a positive attitude to all he does, and the encouragement and educational aspects of what he does are simply unique. He encourages you to ask the questions, while he provides you with the guidance you need to achieve your goals while pushing you through your self imposed limits that you may have. Paul is immensely passionate about what he does. He listened to my story and took the time to understand my needs and work with me to identify goals that I wanted to meet. Paul’s methods helped me to make significant improvements to my lifestyle and overall well-being, weight loss, self confidence and my own physical ability have drastically improved since working with Paul.

The coaching from Paul was nothing short of amazing. Never once did I feel judged, embarrassed or pressured into acting a certain way or eating a certain way. I felt truly comfortable in being able to tell him everything in order to work together to achieve the mindset I now have. You work at your pace never being told to eat certain foods or do certain exercises that are not sustainable. I would recommend Paul to anyone that wants a lifestyle change not just a quick fix that won’t last.

Working with Paul was a wonderful and eye opening experience. His approach is insightful and completely non-judgemental, I felt supported throughout and Paul has helped me unlearn the many unhelpful habits developed over years of ‘on the diet off the diet mentality’. He has brought an invaluable level of calm to my life and I would 100% recommend him to anyone struggling with similar issues around food and weight loss.

Paul's approach to long term and sustainable weight loss is life changing. Forget about crash dieting and unhealthy eating habits. It's hard to put into words how incredible working with Paul has been and I cannot recommend him enough.
