Paul's Testimonials


"I choose to work with Paul, not only for his coaching expertise, but for his ability to keep me accountable to my goals; personal, professional and of course fitness. Paul’s professional, “straight shooter” style and structured approach to life is what makes him and his clients successful. Having Paul in my arsenal is a non-negotiable for me."
- Nick Haince, Owner, Capital Strength Training Systems
"Working with Paul has helped me elevate not only in the gym and on the platform, but in other areas of my life as well. He takes into account other aspects of life and creates a plan that is tailored to your needs and what you have the capacity to handle at that time. As a coach myself, one thing I've learned from Paul is to create a plan for your lifter, don't try to make them fit into your plan. This means things will change, it's ok for things to change, and progress can still happen with those changes.  Grateful to be able to work with Paul, and I plan to for the foreseeable future!"

- Lexi Leneau, Elite Powerlifter

"Paul has been seamlessly writing my programming and coaching myself in powerlifting for the past 3 years now. Through endless ups and downs in sport but in life as well, Paul has been there for me in more ways than just critiquing form and planning out my training. His expertise is something I can value as a coach myself, and I know that with whatever comes my way, having Paul in my corner puts me at my best to take it on. I can’t thank him enough for the hard work he’s put into me as an athlete over the years."

- Allie Jennings, Human Forklift
"I hired Paul to bring focus and structure to my at-home training during the pandemic. Paul’s extensive knowledge,  perceptiveness and compassion made it easy to build a trusting relationship.  I quickly gained strength and was able to  correct movement patterns, which allowed me to recover from recurring injuries.  Paul’s coaching has brought confidence to my lifts and my life.  His ability to adapt my programming to fit my needs and still see results has taken my training to another level, hitting PRs nearly every week for several months.  I have gained far more from my time working with Paul then I ever imagined and I look forward to a strong future as a master athletics athlete."
- Michelle Briere, Engineer and Supermom



"My profits have increased substantially.  I have more free time.  I have structure.  I have less stress than I've ever had being self-employed. Paul took the time to get to know my business in depth with a collaborative feel and nurtured the vision for where I want to go to be higher than I would have set for myself, unrooted previously fixed/self limiting ideas, and supported my weak points while leveraging my strengths.  The net effect has been transformative - I'm running an entirely different business. "

- Dr. Dani Lamartina, DPT, IFBB Pro, Elite Powerlifter, Head Coach at Merge Performance


"I have gone from a trainee, to a personal trainer, and now to a business owner employing other personal trainers. Paul's mentorship was crucial in that transformation. Learning relationship building, developing rapport and most crucially coaching the athlete in front of you was fundamental in my development as a health and fitness professional. I would strongly recommend mentorship under Paul for anyone looking to develop the art of coaching."
