I was recommended to PH Fitness (Paul) but was nervous about working with a personal trainer. Turned out to be the best thing I have done for years. He gives me the discipline I need and is very friendly and helpful.
Paul has been a really marvelous personal trainer for me. With his understanding of physiology, he has been able to develop plans and strategies to help me recover from various running injuries. Paul also has a very keen interest in nutrition, not just the standard PT high protein low carbs knowledge. In using this Paul has also helped me overcome a couple of health issues by identifying where I could deficiencies and recommending a supplement. More recently, I had lost motivation to keep running and working out and a change in work schedule has meant I don’t have the same time to commit to going to the gym and running. Paul has taken this on board and helped me develop a program that will work with my time constraints.
I have been training with Paul for 8 months and can say that in this time I have seen a remarkable change in my fitness, body shape and weight. From the beginning Paul has encouraged me to eat correctly and has provided constant guidance. Initially I believed I could get away with training while eating as I used to however once I started following Paul’s advice I saw changes very quickly. Paul is an ex-army PTI who has also undertaken courses in nutrition etc so he know’s what he is talking about! With Paul’s help I now have a ‘clean diet’ and do believe you cannot out-train a bad diet. Each PT session is different – Paul likes to keep you on your toes. We often do a mix of cardio, weights, body resistance training and HIIT/ Tabatta. Paul pushes you hard and genuinely wants to see you fulfil your potential and achieve your fitness goals. I will definitely continue training with Paul in order to achieve my goals which I know I can achieve.
Paul is a competent professional working with a range of clients – from low to very high fitness levels. He has an ability to pitch his training at a suitable level for the individual.
