Every Body Holds A Story Podcast

Nov 24, 2021

Today we speak with Coach Paul Casey.  After spending his teenage years, 20’s and early 30’s in and out of incarceration, he made a huge mindset shift.  When his mom passed in 2013 he gave up on life and went down a very dark hole which eventually led him to a fork in the road, he had to change everything or end up dead. The day he finally reached out for help was one of the hardest yet most freeing moments of his life. By participating in every self-help group or college class offered and reading every book on physical, mental, and emotional health he could get his hands on while still in prison, he changed his mindset and the direction of his life.


In his mother’s honor, he now helps people transform themselves into their healthiest, happiest, and most confident selves. He has helped 100’s of people get in the best shape of their lives. He is the owner of A Better You Fitness LLC and creator of the Better Body series.  He is a certified personal trainer through ISSA, certified Group fitness instructor through ACE, certified OTF coach, water Rower, and TRX Certified.


In this episode we discuss. 


1) This episode dives into all things addiction, time in prison, self-worth, and connection. Paul’s destructive path started in his young teens and he spent most of his 20’s incarcerated and he shares the experience, lessons learned, and how he is now using these lessons to pay it forward to others.

2) “If you don’t know where you are going, you will likely end up there.” When Paul made a plan it helped it to focus on the daily actions of what he had to do to create the change he wanted to have in his life.  Now he spends time and energy focusing on things he wants to train for such as half marathons and helping others with their exercise programing to feel better and more functional.

3) Paul’s passion in giving back to youth and supporting others with the lessons he learned on his journey.  This gives so much purpose to his journey and allows him to continue to make an impact on others.  One of his messages that rings through is “everything is a blessing”, and that is such an incredible mindset shift and belief.  So powerful.
