Paul is a very professional and easy going, engaging, knowledgeable, flexible, understanding, energetic, positive and more. All of his music choices where motivating, his expert techniques and step by step explanations where easy to follow, his motivating language and overall class leadership was appealing, his program style from the start with warm-ups through the end with cool down and relaxation/yoga was so perfect. I especially like the paired down version he explained for every exercise and the variety of moves.

I just wanted you to know that because of you and your class I have been going to the gym 2-3x/wk for exercise and Zumba - I have lost a few pounds, but several inches, my clothes are all falling off (oops?), and the best is that I feel soooooooo much better. I have more strength, stamina and I don't feel fatigued during the day anymore. I just wanted you to know that you're a miracle worker. I hope you're well and having fun. Keep in touch.

In the spring of 2007, I had the opportunity to work as a Strength & Conditioning Intern at Boston University. The head coach of Strength & Conditioning was Glenn Harris. He had this to say during my final evaluation:

“Paul did an excellent job as an intern for us. He exhibited a strong desire to learn and was not afraid to ask questions. He fit in well while instructing student athletes as well as worked well with my staff. If Paul continues to stay in this field, I am sure he will be successful.”

Maryann M. of Massachusetts writes:

I am a 44 year old woman in what I thought was fairly good condition until, like most women my age, I began to feel tired when I woke even after a full nights sleep. I also had difficulty getting out of bed because my joints were stiff and I had numerous aches and pains. So I decided to bite the bullet and join the gym. Of course I was reluctant at first but with proper direction and a positive attitude after only three months I feel great. I attribute my success to working closely with my personal trainer, Paul Connolly.

Whereas some people may have taken a “crash course” to become a personal trainer, Paul has taken and continues to take numerous classes as well as attends seminars related to exercise, fitness, health, nutrition, etc. In doing so, he is able to give reasoning behind everything he has you do. He knows his stuff and is extremely enthusiastic about it.

Unfortunately for me lately back and knee problems have caused my stress level to increase and as a result my progress has been slowed. Paul however, keeps a positive attitude with me. Although I have certainly been a challenge to him, he is very professional and I can tell he really loves his job.
