Originally hailing from Dublin, Paul Olima is a man of many talents. As ex-professional football and rugby player, fitness model and PT, Paul is without a doubt one of leading fitness influencers in the UK with a loyal and engaged following of over 130,000.
Paul is increasingly becoming known for his exploits outside the gym; his tongue-in-cheek persona is incredibly popular on social media and, alongside his partner Megan-Rose Lane, he playfully showcases the trials and tribulations of becoming a father for the second time.
After moving from Dublin to London at the age of 19, where he went on to play both football and rugby at a professional level, Paul gained his PT qualifications to begin training clients. Alongside this PT work, he has acted as a body double for the likes of Usain Bolt and Mario Balotelli, and is working as an ambassador for MaxiMuscle – regularly featuring in advertising campaigns for brands such as Puma, Jaguar and Beats by Dre amongst others, Paul's versatility and overall appeal is clear to be seen.
Paul uses his social media channels to share his knowledge of getting the best out of the ‘iron jungle’ with his community. His passion for making others feel included, lifting their spirits and helping them realise their true potential really is a testament to his warm and approachable character.
