Hi, I'm Paul. that's me over there.

I run Body By Control and have been a Personal Trainer for over 7 years, having delivered over 10,000 one to one sessions in that time. 

I strongly believe that to help you get the best result possible we should use the most up to date, evidenced practices available.  

My aim is to help deliver you the most efficient and sustainable way of looking great naked as let's face it, that's why you're here!

My journey to this point is characterised by mediocrity.

I am not someone who was born lucky with the whole fitness thing, my family aren't athletes, I didn't grow up eating veggies harvested from the hills of Tibet and I wasn't the captain of my sports team.

I got into this for one simple reason; I wanted to stop feeling unattractive.

Let's just say that I've had a few different phases to my physique through the years.

I've been overweight and liked to drink way too much.

I've been skinny and struggled to fill a T-Shirt, I've had really bad acne and I've struggled with depression from OCD.

And yet here I am.

But that journey taught me more than a few things, the first one of which is that you don't need a lecture. You don't need someone to judge you and tell you you're shit.

You need someone who is honest without judgement. 

You need someone who understands the difficulties you're facing and helps you come up with ways to help yourself.

You need a mentor, coach and friend.

Someone who cares about how well you do and makes you feel supported along the way, wherever you happen to be right now.

I passionately believe that you can be whoever and whatever the hell you want to be, sometimes you just need someone to guide you and show you the way.
