Paul Creasey ( @biodefined ) is a body composition specialist and personal trainer. In an earlier life, Paul was by day a school teacher (music and P.E), and by night a bodybuilder/personal trainer. But he soon realised that his true passion was for personal training, and therefore completely pivoted his life to create bioDefined. Paul is widely renowned for his expert knowledge in strength training, biomechanics and exercise execution having been trained by the likes of Charles Poliquin, Eugene Teo and Luke Leaman. An avid self-improver he has by far one of the best fitness and strength podcasts specific to local Australian talent, on bioDefined Radio, and a building library of content across multiple social platforms.

We covered a wide array of fitness, strength and health topics including:

  • Moving on from school teaching to PT’ing

  • Advice to those who wish to switch careers

  • On his journey with bioDefined

  • Key principles to training and nutrition

  • Biggest mistakes people make in regards to stress

  • The ideal diet

  • How he trains his clients

  • Go-to recovery methods

  • Go-to supplements

  • Measuring and monitoring improvement

  • Resources for inspiration

  • Mistakes made by people while training

  • Things they don’t tell you before starting as a PT
