This isn’t your average story and Paul isn’t your average personal trainer.
Growing up, Paul had a different life to most kids spending a lot of time in hospital, battling through multiple medical conditions and major surgeries. From the age of 2.5 years old Paul has; battled cancer, loss of hearing and speech as a side effect of chemo, near heart failure at the age of 12, pneumonia at age 14, and a heart transplant in 2001.
Because of these early health setbacks and encouraged by the time he and his brother spent with their parents at the gym - Paul developed a life-long passion for fitness and sports, both playing and spectating.
With the goal of living the healthiest life possible, Paul found a sport he could really get stuck into, Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting.
“When I was 15 I struggled to walk up a flight of stairs. Today I have a total combined lift of 325kg!”
