PARIS ROBINSON-LECKY LEAD INSTRUCTOR
Paris hails from Charleston, South Carolina, one of the friendliest cities in the USA. Paris originally sought a career in film and media and even studied at The University of South Carolina. It took moving to the UK and some family health scares to push Paris into fitness. But once started, he realised that he’d found his niche. Paris is an advocate of making fitness fun because if you find something you like doing you don’t realise the effort it takes. Paris firmly believes that this is part of what makes Just Feel Alive so successful. In creating Just Feel Alive and the BFF brand Paris wanted people to feel that they had found their BFF in fitness health and wellbeing. Paris says “It took me over thirty years to find my way to fitness. Along the way, I‘ve had to change my way of thinking and eating along with finding activities that have made me want to keep moving. If I can do it so can you” just remember “ a journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”. Since starting his journey Paris is a member of the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) and he has gained the following qualifications: Creator of MOVE and SCULPT, Beatz® Fitness instructor, Level 2 Exercise to Music, Level 2 Gym Instructor, Boot Camp and Circuits, Kettlebells Instructor, Indoor Group Cycling, The BrainFit Workout Certified Coach, and Fitness Pilates. Paris loves being able to help others become the best version of themselves. Remember life is not a race but a journey, take time for yourself and plan for longevity.

Since starting Feel Alive Health & Fitness with Paris he has been responsible for commercial aspects of the business, Paul has been taken hostage on the journey towards fitness. This has involved 10k pyjama walks, being covered in paint at the 5k Run or Dye and participating in several fitness classes a week. He doesn’t recall being told this was part of the deal, possibly thinking how did this happen. He does feel work has never been this much fun, Paul has been inspired by the dedication and transformation he sees in the people who attend classes regularly. Asked for a quote Paul said ” Exercise, because Zombies will eat the slow ones first!” and more seriously ” Your body can stand almost anything it’s your mind you need to convince”.
