About Paul

I can help you get fit and improve performance in day-to-day life or sport. Your program will address all areas of fitness, including: flexibility/mobility, power, strength, conditioning and nutrition. This is all done with consideration for your available time commitment, goal(s) and injury history.

My favorite client story

Can't say that I have a favorite. I always enjoy hearing stories about people moving around better in day-to-day life. This could be as simple as hauling luggage around to improved performance in a recreational/competitive sport.

My favorite exercise

Whatever exercise gets the job done.

My favorite quote

Anything Arnold says. I'm a total shill for Schwartzenegger.

My training philosophy

My philosophy centers around performance enhancement. Whether participating in competitive sport or not, I feel your body should work as good as it looks. Even with only cosmetic goals, as many people have, your training will have a positive effect on day-to-day life.

My training experience

My background comes from both Houston personal training and strength and conditioning. I hold a Master Of Science degree with an emphasis on Sports Physiology from Texas A&M University, am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength And Conditioning Association and am a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified Coach. I've helped improve athletic performance as a Personal Trainer, Student Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at Texas A&M University and as a Strength and Conditioning Coach in Professional Baseball. I am experienced working with athletes from multiple sports including: baseball, basketball, football, swimming, volleyball, and soccer. As a Personal Trainer, I've also helped people improve general fitness qualities from various ages and backgrounds. My athletic programs have helped people: lose fat, improve strength, build muscle/endurance and increase self-confidence/esteem. Athletic or not, there's a good chance I can be of help to you in achieving success in fitness or sport.

After working with Paul for almost 6 years, we have complete confidence in Paul's expertise, competence, skillfulness, ingenuity and creativity as well as in his commitment to helping us reach our fitness goals. He has an excellent knowledge base from academic training and continually seeks out additional information to stay at the forefront of the field. In addition, he looks for specific information to help us deal with any physical problems that arise during the course of our training related to our physical limitations (e.g., arthritic joints). In addition to his expertise and experience, his personable way of interacting adds to the positivity and flow of our sessions. He challenges us to move forward but is also flexible and patient with limitations to present periodically. He seems to work well with a wide age-range of clients. We have and will continue without reservation to recommend Paul to anyone looking for a trainer.

Very knowledgeable trainer. Effective training.

In three months, Paul improved my strength and cardio so much that I thought it would have to take at least a year otherwise. I have worked out several years and had trainers before, but Paul still taught me so many things. He was always able to spot my weaknesses and then change the program to help me overcome the weak parts. He was also very good at making notes of progress and tweak the program accordingly to keep me improving with steady momentum. And all those things he taught me immediately transformed into my fast strength and muscle gain. Besides being highly skilled in training methods, Paul is also a fun guy to workout with. He makes the workout fun to do and also satisfying in the end.

I have trained with many trainers, and none make me love the gym like Paul. I looked forward to each session because of his ability to make the time fun and give me results. With Paul I lost 30 pounds, and gained self respect, and a positive self image. Paul changed my life, and help me attain a huge goal. I believe in Paul, and his program.
