Paul grew up in South Africa as a natural athlete, playing rugby, cricket and tennis as a kid. Heading into high school, he specialized in tennis, playing 3-hours a day and achieving top 5 in South Africa in the sport. In 2006, he landed a tennis scholarship in Georgia, and moved to the U.S. to get an education and compete as a college athlete. After graduation, Paul moved to Chicago for a job in finance and with half the year winter in the city, he searched for a new sport to supplement his passion for tennis. After watching several Crossfit and weightlifting videos, including the Crossfit Games, he decided to give this sport a shot.

After 6-years at Windy City Strength and Conditioning, Paul firmly believes in the fundamental principles of Crossfit. He loves helping athletes grow inside and beyond the gym by providing the necessary tools to move effectively for longer and healthier lives.
