Paul Brice is an Exercise Specialist who has a passion for helping people with more complicated health, fitness or sporting requirements. Paul has a vast amount of experience working with people with all manner of medical conditions, health complaints, and injuries, as well as helping to train athletes in strength and conditioning specific to their sport. Paul regards his approach Intelligent Exercise.
Paul was an international athlete for 7 years. He gained his first senior international vest aged 17, and represented his country in the Long Jump, Hurdles, Javelin and Decathlon. After graduating in 1986 with a joint honours degree in Sports Science and Biology, Paul spent many years acting as a consultant to the health and fitness industry. In 1993 Paul started working with patient referrals from the NHS, and since then he has been instrumental in advocating exercise as a means to help manage a wide range of health conditions. In 2004 Paul joined forces with Spencer McCormack and established the first private gym to be located in an NHS Hospital, BWell Gym.
Paul’s innovative approach to exercise has led him to develop a new programme for pulmonary rehabilitation. This is known as the Brice Method, and is a new approach to help people suffering with COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
I generally work in block bookings of 5 sessions at a time. This is because my methods generally require you to commit to take on some homework exercises or gym focused activity to learn new movement patterns. You can spread the sessions over as many weeks as you like, and I will advise what I feel is appropriate for you..
(BWell members and referrals from existing clients get a £30 discount, so pay only £150)
I offer individual rehabilitation or personal training sessions which last approximately 55 minutes.

If you have a particular goal or health objective in mind, I provide an even more extensive package, which not only gives you two, 50 minute workout sessions a week, but also gives you additional support such as a structured home workout plan and email/text support. I find this type of support is essential if you need to be active more than twice a week.
Cost £250 per month.
Commit to 3 months in advance, I will even give you a basic home gym package. This will help you do exercises at home, or on the move if you have little time to get to the gym more regularly. The exercise pack will be to the value of £50 and will be a personalised selection of equipment that Paul feels will help you best.
Cost £750 for 3 months.
I first met Paul in 2015 by a friend recommending him to me. I had spoken to several personal trainers in the months running up to meeting Paul however I didn’t feel any of them offered me an individual tailored package like Paul was able to do.
My priority was to find a trainer that had experience with multi discipline sports and knowledge of sports psychology who I could trust.
After two years of working with Paul I was able to trust him quickly by making me feel valued and relaxed around him. He demonstrated his wide range of knowledge and experience to me of nutrition, techniques of multi disciplined sport, personal development, self confidence, goal setting and self belief.
No matter what issue I have put to him we have found a solution, including wanting to do a triathlon when I had only just learnt to swim. Through that trust of not being laughed at, Paul gave me the self belief to not only enter a triathlon but to finish in the top half of my age group. My progression was achieved through his support, guidance, encouragement and knowledge by goal setting with regular meetings.
My biggest concern at first of working with a personal trainer was I didn’t want to feel silly or belittled and it was imperative I could trust them. I have found Paul very approachable and easy to talk to and cannot thank him enough for the support and self belief he has given me.
