Favourite Quote: “If you want something you’ve never had, then do something you’ve never done.”
American born and soon to be a British citizen, Paul is our studio’s co-founder and our Cycle Boss! Passionate about all things cycling, he digs deep on all the latest science-based developments to maximise results for himself and his riders. A decade ago, the anxiety of unemployment during the brutal American recession was taking a toll on both his physical and emotional health. Overweight and depressed, he knew he had to make a change. He found his way into a dark room filled with bikes that go nowhere. From his first class, he knew he had found the path to regaining control of his fitness and confidence and he soon became an endorphin addict. Those bikes that go nowhere took him to the best shape of his life.
He became an instructor to help others achieve that same success, believing that everyone deserves to look and, more importantly, feel their very best. Every time he gets on the podium, it’s obvious that teaching is his true calling. Cycle Culture is the culmination of a dream for him and his wife, Mili…to bring a life-changing cycling experience to their beloved Tooting.
Paul’s classes explode with energy, positivity and above all, hard work that produces concrete, measurable results. Riders work so hard and have so much fun that they don’t even realise that he’s snuck a bunch of science into the program. Paul gets to know his riders personally. Don’t be surprised if he manages to use something from your life to motivate you to push further than you imagined possible. There are no shortcuts in his room, but the ride is one you’ll not soon forget. Get ready to meet your best self.
