Here we have our client of the month for July – PAUL!

Paul started with us back in February in our Indoor Fit Camp Programme on behalf of his Wife Julie’s recommendation. He joined us after spending years at the Village Hotel with a Personal Trainer and was finding the experience a little bit stale and ready for a new challenge. 
Since joining Paul has certainly put his own twist on each session and is always pushing past his 100% and really, really goes for it! 
Paul shot to instant fame (or infamy) in the studio with his clapping press ups which he is constantly consistent with. Every press up has a clap.

He manages to get in about 6x session per week, and 2x on a Friday. Paul and Julies oldest daughter Annabel is also a member , it’s great to see them all doing session together
