The Pain of change

I was chatting to a member recently about how they have been on a journey of weight loss and they’ve shifted five stone… Mightily impressive…

I asked her what her motivation was… It wasn’t health, kids, family or work… It was the (emotional) PAIN of remaining in that condition any longer… looking in the mirror was one of her most retching thoughts and acts of the day…

It made me think back to a seminar I was on and the quote:

“You will remain the same, UNTIL… the PAIN OF CHANGE, outweighs the PAIN OF REMAINING THE SAME…”

Translated to the lady we’re talking about, means that she would rather put up with the hard work, change of nutrition and feeling of dread stepping into the gym for the first time THAN looking at herself in the mirror everyday….

And DAMNNNN…. was it worth it… She looks great!


We know it’s daunting to step through the doors that first time into a gym where nobody knows your name, you feel like the odd one out and everybody is a “gym bunny” or “flashing their six pack around”…

That’s why it’s important for us to integrate EVERYBODY who walks through the door at PARAGON and keep the membership base low so that we keep the community feel…

Plus we don’t have any mirrors and we NEVER WILL for many reasons but one big reason is the fact some people detest looking at themselves… ESPECIALLY when training…


Remember the resolutioners from my previous post… Well these guys and girls need that little bit of encouragement just as much as you regulars crave the approval of others for your technique or your rippled abs…

We’re all human and we only want to be recognised for our efforts…

Make somebody’s day today and pay them a comlpliment regardless of training/fitness/health ability…

There’s nothing wrong with being a nice person in a society today where people seem quick to put down and shun others…

Part of my mission is to make sure that people I work with to achieve their fitness goals are educated enough that they can continue their journey without needing me.


I take pride in being able to give my clients the push they need to get where they want to be in terms of health and fitness.


Embedded in my ethos is the desire to inspire my clients to want to be their best selves, without that, there is no reason to do what I do.

Why work with me?

I am not a salesman. Unlike many Personal Trainers in Essex, I care deeply about my clients progress and want to help get results quickly.

Personal training isn't about shouting at someone to make them exercise. For me it's about the ten years experience and knowledge I have behind me, which allows me to educate clients on how to quickly get where they want to be.
