1 / Go in with a plan.
Forcing yourself to go for the odd run will get you somewhere. But not necessarily where you want to be. “One of the biggest factors in fitness is matching your goals to the form of training you do, and that training should also match your lifestyle,” says Paolo. “There is no one way of training. There is no such thing as one-diet-fits-all. I believe that if you start working out with a trainer, and he tells you that he knows exactly what will work for you, then that trainer does not know anything; he is just trying to sell you something. There is no magic pill – it’s a process of trying, and sometimes failing, until you find what works for each individual.”
2 / Train smart.
Paolo specialises in building “Hollywood bodies” – the kind of physique that becomes a tabloid headline but is functionally capable enough to throw a punch or, you know, a table as the script demands.
