Coach Paul Harrison

Paul comes to our gym with years of training experience and coaching. He has spent many years in the fitness industry as a trainer and former gym owner. His years of experience offer clients the ability to be coached by someone with a good eye for movement and the ability to correct poor form. His philosophy of mechanics, and consistency before anything places our athletes in the best possible position to achieve their athletic goals.

Paul has the CrossFit level 1 certification and CrossFit Weightlifting endorsement and has been coaching functional fitness for years. Paul spent his youth playing all the sports and his 20’s getting fat. At the age of 30 he decided he needed a change and took up running and triathlons. That lasted until his knees gave out and that’s when he discovered high intensity fitness exercises.

When he is not in the gym training or coaching Paul enjoys the mountains by skiing, mountain biking and hiking. Come by and try one of his classes for a fantastic workout.
