Paul received a BA (Honours) in Psychology from Western University, where he was introduced to his passion for coaching and bodybuilding. Once an anorexic, depressed marathon runner, Paul tried Dr. John Berardi’s “Scrawny to Brawny” principles, put on 74 pounds in 13 months; transforming his physique, state of mind, and consequently, his career trajectory. Paul received his Precision Nutrition Certification and has mentored hundreds using the “Scrawny to Brawny” program – police men, executives, stay-at-home dads – through their own life changing, limit-shattering transformations.
Paul has won a natural bodybuilding title and continues to cultivate a holistic view of optimum health. He completed a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training program, and utilizes yoga and meditation in his daily life and coaching practices. He has also explored many healing modalities as they relate to optimal health and performance, including Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, manual therapies such as Active Release and Rolfing, as well as nutritional philosophies such as vegetarianism and veganism, energy medicine, and the spiritual practices of yoga and meditation. Paul’s perspective on achieving optimum health continues to evolve, as he now plans to enroll in the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC.
