LiftHeavyGurl is not only about creating a fit body. It is about using fitness to strengthen and unify our mind, body, and soul. In life, many things may come our way to weigh us down. LiftHeavyGurl is here to provide the tools to lift the burdens off ourselves and become our own champion.

Twenty years ago, my personal fitness journey began. I was one of a few women in the fire academy, and I knew then I would not allow my gender to box me in, and I was determined to become the absolute best version of myself. To successfully do this, I had to align myself so I could overcome my own self-doubt and fear.


LiftHeavyGurl is here to help you succeed in all areas of your life. If there are pounds that you are carrying or the dead weight that life brings to all of our front doors, LiftHeavyGurl is where you belong. Join me in becoming the best you.

When I needed a push to get motivated and feel better about myself, Paula did that for me. I had just gone through a difficult time and my self-esteem was low. But she saw in me the ability to reach my goals even when I couldn’t see. I agreed to train with her and am so thankful I did. She trained me over the next several weeks and taught me how to work out the right way. We worked on meal planning too. She wasn’t easy on me… and I thank her for that now. If you need a trainer that is going to motivate you and get you to where you want to be, Paula’s got you! Great trainer- highly recommend her.

I’ve been struggling recently with the way I should train my abs and a program that could help me see success. I reached out to Paula virtually and explained my struggles and needs. She had a good understanding of my needs, especially for a woman of my age. She listened and came up with an ab program that I could progress with. What I really appreciated was, that she worked out with me and made sure I was doing the exercises correctly. She had a good balance between pushing me and making me feel I could achieve more than I thought. I would highly recommend Paula as a very professional trainer, who gives a lot of thought to her client’s needs and training objectives.

I don’t really like to do traditional working out but knew as I am getting older I needed to more than what I was doing. I felt like having a personal trainer would be best. I contacted LiftHeavyGurl and Paula put me on a twice a week workout via Zoom. It was very tough in the beginning but as the weeks went by I was doing better and better and feeling better to. Paula kept me motivated and never let me
give up! I definitely feel that this was one of the best decisions I have ever made.


Paula is an attentive and dedicated coach. She’ll get the sweat going in the first 10 minutes! Loved all of the variations to hit all major body groups!


If you are a beginner embarking on a new fitness journey or looking to start working out again. I highly recommend Paula as your personal fitness trainer. She comes prepared with an exercise routine already planned. She listens and will design a workout routine to help you achieve your goals. Her approach is personable with a focus on proper technique and proper form; to avoid any potential injuries. She’s personable and very easy to work with. Not only will she motivate you, but she will give you the extra nudge you need to stay on track. I highly recommend Paula as your fitness trainer, fitness partner and friend
