"I started working out with Paul Rose about 2 years ago. Taking on an intensive course of personal training in later life is a daunting prospect. However, it was clear from the first couple of sessions that something very good could come of it. Within 2 months I had intensified my work-outs and become fitter, and stronger and learned a host of new exercises. Most transformational, Paul through his careful stretching and encouragement has me squatting and dead-lifting 100 kgs for the first time in 20 years of recurrent back problems.
The change to my legs and arse (hind quarters) is dramatic and bringing lots of compliments from guys 30 years younger than me. At the outset I was 83 kilos with 13% body fat. I am now 89 kilos with body-fat just below 10% and still falling. The definition has increased at an even higher rate. Paul's work on my core has given me extra strength and not least a tapered waistline and emergent six pack. Not least the approach, range of exercises and intensity carries forward into my solo my work-outs. All that said the sessions with Paul are enjoyable since he is very personable, laid back and fun.
I gave up the gym in my 50s thinking it was all getting too late. Working with Paul has been a revelation in terms of how the body can still respond to great coaching."
"Paul is a great trainer. Since working with him I’ve become fitter, stronger and far more disciplined than I’ve ever been. He’s also managed to instil more focus and drive in me which has helped me hugely at work. He’s raised my own expectations of what I’m capable of because he always pushes me further than I think I can go - he doesn’t let you limit yourself.
Because he’s very knowledgeable across a range of fitness disciplines, he’s great at adapting your training to your particular needs and ambitions. He pays a lot of attention to detail and wants you to do the same. He’s also an incredibly nice person to work with: I’ve trained with him dozens of times and he’s never given me anything less than 100% of his attention and effort."
