First, I am not an elite athlete by any stretch. I was initially introduced to weightlifting through Crossfit in my early 30s. I enjoyed the Olympic lifts and wanted to learn better technique from the best coach available. He is a phenomenal coach who carefully develops custom training programs for each of his athletes, who range from the beginner (me) to the National Champion. Coach Paul is passionate about the sport and really seeks to help athletes from all backgrounds and levels achieve their training goals. He runs a very professional gym and has a very kind and helpful personality. His weightlifting team, Front Range WLC, trains together. Being able to train and learn alongside nationally ranked lifters in a team environment has truly been an amazing experience. What I love is that the team includes great folks from all walks of life: kids, masters, moms, students, elite athletes, beginners, grandpas, business professionals … Family.
