A little about Paul
Paul’s bodybuilding titles include
Former Mr Philippines
11 x Mr Western Australia
1 x Mr Australia
Through the years, he has met respected personalities in the sport like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Ferrigno and Mr. Olympia, Dorian Yates.
But more than working at developing muscles for showing off, Paul has a mission: promoting fitness among the youth. Like his fitness hero Arnold, he has shared his expertise in weight training, fitness and nutrition through lectures and seminars among youth groups in Canada, Australia, Philippines and the U.S.A.
Although he has built the impressive mass and symmetry envied by many guys who are deep into weight training, Paul reveals that his winning physique can’t exactly be attributed to superb genetics. Paul says that he, too, used to be one of those scrawny guys that we often laugh about in old comic books, the ones that get sand kicked in their face by well-muscled bullies on the beach.
Paul has his own personal training business “Body N Beauty Fitness Studio”. He is also married and has a young son, that’s why he has to start his day at 4:00 am, “it thrills me, I wake up, it is so cold during the winter, the bars stick to my hands, and I still workout. That sort of mental drive is something that I’ve put to good use in the other aspects of my life – in my family life and career, for instance.”
Like any disciplined fitness enthusiast, Paul prepares his own meals. When he is training for a contest, his typical protein-packed diet includes eating 12 egg whites plus a serving of toast for breakfast. After his morning workout, he has 2 cans of tuna in water and about five cups of rice. For lunch, it’s two chicken breast and broccoli. For dinner, it’s steak, chicken or fish, plus vegetables.
Equally important amongst “Natural” bodybuilders, he says, is psyching up for the contest and getting proper nutrition. He observes, “It’s a sport that’s all illusion. Once you’re on stage, you’ll never know who’s really big. That’s why when I prepare for an event; I do it in a professional manner. First, I measure myself then calculate how much protein I need.
