Janet Jackson says
“...I give it up to Paulette. She's incredible. And she never made me feel like I have to deprive myself of anything. She would say "What do you like? OK I'm going to put that in.What do you enjoy? OK i'm going to put that in.."
Hilary-International Bikini Champion
“I’m am so happy to have met Paulette, since I’ve known here she’s always been inspiring, motivating and always full of energy, she never stops!
When I started working with her I was very self conscious about how I looked, I wouldn’t wear shorts or skirts in the summer because of how thick my thighs were and how I looked, I then thought I had to have a very good goal to get me back into shape. Paulette had always told me to get into fitness modelling, and I would always laugh, however this time I decided to do it, I entered the Canada Fitness Star competition for the bikini category, and this is when the mighty Paulette put me into action.
She did everything for me, gave me meal plans, supplements, training plans, support, absolutely everything I needed to get me though. I was able to contact her at all times when I needed anything and she would be there in a flash giving advice and pushing me on.
I had never been on a diet before, in fact the whole experience was new to me, training for a fitness model competition for the first time, it was all pretty nerve racking, however Paulette always made me feel secure and positive at all times.
Her plans were more than great! Every week I would have to give in my weight and body measurements and give in pictures every 2 weeks, she would asses me every time and see whether or not there were improvements, if not she would change my diet on the go and the results would always be better.
The thing that I really like about Paulette is that she was always honest, in the times that I was not doing so well she would tell me (not in a mean way) but in a way which was motivating and made you want to work harder, as well as praising me when I was smashing it!
When I say Paulette did everything for me, she LITERALLY did everything for me. She helped me out with my posing, how to walk the walk on stage and how to work it! She made me feel confident too which is also important. All the bikini, shoes, and accessories again Paulette gave me all the recommendations I needed. She really made time for me and was very patient with me, as I know I can be a handful at times! She was a coach, a friend, a personal trainer and an educator to me.
I recommend Paulette 110% and I can put everything on her that she will help you reach your goals whatever it is!
Thank you very much Paulette! Xx”
Kasia- 1st timer-Fitness & Sports Model Competitor
It is a both a privilege and honour to be able to write a testimonial for Paulette.. When I hired Paulette I was a woman with a rather low sense of body image.. I was doing endless hours of cardio. Running from one fitness class to another yet could not lose weight or tone my body at all, I was stuck. Today, my whole perspective and confidence has come full circle. Body strength, stamina, endurance, better posture and balance, self-image, and most of all confidence in my body. . I competed in GymBodyz fitness gala thanks to the best coach-Paulette, who made sure I was stage ready and I know for sure that I would not do it without her guidance and coaching. When I signed up for this competition, I didn’t even know where to start! Paulette wrote meal and training plans specific to me and my goals only, she was always available when I needed advice and answered all questions with such knowledge and professionalism that I knew I was in good hands. I trusted her completely and followed her instructions and program without any doubts.
We ought to demand the best from our personal trainers and Paulette is definitely the best. She is highly professional, and knowledgeable and takes her work very seriously.. But it’s her “you can do it” attitude that makes you want to strive, come back for more and with her coaching you can definitely reach your goals. Paulette is honest, caring, supportive, encouraging, has a great sense of humour and you can trust her completely with your training and nutrition plans. Paulette will also push you to your limit, challenge you and you will love it! I truly believe that hiring Paulette is one of the best investments you can make in your health and for yourself. Your body and soul will thank you for it. Kasia Zwolinska
Angela's Transformation Journey
“I was excited and couldn’t wait to get started and rid myself of my body fat – yippee. What I hadn’t realised or appreciated was the food side of the programme was going to be mentally challenging.
I started by keeping a food diary for a week and then sent it to Paulette who pointed out that I didn’t eat enough protein which was a revelation to me. She then provided a food plan based on what I eat incorporating a few other foods which weren’t too much of a problem to include. I also received some useful information/tips. I must admit my initial reaction upon seeing the plan was both shock and surprise as it would mean I’d have to measure out certain foods which is something I’d never done before. Still, I said I’d do the program and there was a part of me that wanted to see if it really worked.
At our first meeting Paulette measured my arms, legs, waist, hips and chest in centimetres and informed me that it was easier to keep a track of the changes over time. She emailed the results to me which helped to focus my mind.
The first two weeks weren’t easy, I kept thinking I felt hungry and my stomach sang a protest tune all of its own on many occasions. Food became an obsession; it was all I seemed to think about – all the things I couldn’t eat mainly crisps and cakes which ironically are things I don’t eat that often. I wondered whether this was really about being told what to eat and therefore wanting to eat something else, you know, a kind of defiance. Anyway, thank goodness there were other things to occupy my mind and time.
As someone who regularly goes to the gym I found the exercise part challenging and enjoyable and loved the personal training sessions with Paulette outdoors. There’s something amazing about exercising outside, the smells, noises, dogs, children and adults – on one occasion I thought the heavens would open up and drench us, we were lucky.
I think from the third week things started to settle down for me and I don’t know exactly when it happened but I’d stopped measuring my portions as I could gauge what 60g or 100g felt like and usually I was right. I’d also started to notice something very significant with my clothes they were beginning to hang off me and that felt really good. However, the biggest and most noticeable thing was when the second measurements were taken – the results showed I’d lost a steady amount of body fat all over but I suppose I knew that by my clothes. I must admit I wasn’t best pleased about the loss of centimetres from my chest but have gotten over it now especially as my stomach is getting flatter and more defined. This gave me the impetus to continue on.
Well, I’ve finished the program and am very pleased with the final results – my clothes say it all and I’m looking forward to clearing out my wardrobe and getting some fun things in it. The program has been life changing in so many ways. I look at my body now (before I’d want to wear baggy clothes and hide myself) and I want to wear things to accentuate my figure which I’m very proud of and this is the first time I’ve said this. I also have a different relationship with food and don’t feel the need to eat or drink to excess and no longer have that bloating feeling. I also get a better night’s sleep and feel more positive, motivated and proud of myself.
You might be wondering what the future holds for me, well, I intend to continue my personal training sessions with Paulette and I’ve learned that eating in moderation is the key.
Thank you Paulette for your support, encouragement and patience.”
Shaherah Jordan NABBA Toned Figured Champion
Here Shaherah explains how her posing & Stage presence training with Paulette helped her take the title.
“Having trained hard and dieted for 11 weeks I needed to polish of my presentation for the NABBA South East Miss Toned category and Paulette really helped me to shine”.

“She showed me some very useful tips to help bring out the best in my figure for the stage which I believe helped me bag the trophy! She’s knowledgeable, professional and incredibly encouraging. Count yourself lucky if you’ve got her in your camp!”
“I have been a long time group ex junkie doing 10+ classes a week. I started training with Paulette as despite my grueling class schedule, I wasn’t getting the results I desired. I aspired to have a more chiseled and toned physique which despite my clean diet and extensive cardio regime just wasn’t happening.
Paulette immediately put me on strength training program which was previously devoid from my exercise routine and cautioned me that all the cardio I was doing was actually counter-productive to the results I desired. What was even more impressive was how she managed to coax me off my life of group classes which I had literally been doing for 12+ years. I have always been a diehard class fanatic so weaning me off classes was a feat in itself.
I am literally in awe of the results I have achieved in just 3 short months with Paulette’s training and guidance. I have achieved more in this short time then in the past 12+ years. My strength levels have soared and my physique has radically transformed before my eyes. Also, now when I do an occasional class my performance is far superior with me jumping higher and moving with greater agility than ever before. Beyond the physical transformation, Paulette has helped transform my mental state with regard to exercise. I no longer feel like I need to slug it for hours on end at the gym as she has truly instilled in me the mantra of ”less is more”. I could not recommend Paulette enough as she has given me the tools to not only shape my body but excel physically. Plus, I won’t be going back to endless classes anytime soon thanks to Paulette!”
“I have been going to the gym for several years and in all the time that I have been going, I have never met such a dedicated, fun, hardworking trainer as Paulette. Her classes are always full to the brim because she makes the training fun that you don’t even realise the amount of work you are putting into your workout. Because she puts in 110% it makes you want to put the same amount of effort. She makes time to speak to you and always gives you a smile. Thank you for bringing out the best in me even if you didn’t know it..”
Julie 35, South West London
“Paulette has taught me the importance of technique, technique, technique in exercise. She will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear!
She is my Ms Motivator”………………
Daniel 36, LONDON
She has taught me that technique is EVERYTHING and the results on my body have shown that’
I first met Paulette at a friends gathering. From the off we got on, talking non-stop about fitness.
Fast forward almost 2 years and I decide I’m going to enter a competition. I had seen Paulette’s progresses and successes and liked the body she had built for herself and others.
I signed up to her 8 week online competition programme and hit the ground running. From the off Paulette was very structured and organised. Her attention to detail was very evident with the tweaks she made to my diet and training. She always explained why we are changing up the diet or training and what this workout does etc. She was easily accessible, never having to wait a week to discuss any queries.
I can honestly say that I let go and trusted in Paulette’s knowledge and experience throughout.
Oh and I placed in my completion.
I will definitely be working with Paulette again.
“Paulette is an excellent instructor whose training makes you progress and push boundaries, while at the same time having a really good time! An fantastic combination, if you ask me! I can’t keep away from her classes – they are just too good!”
Tony 34 South East London
