    You know when you hear someone speak and the hair stands up on the back of your neck? That happened to me the first time I heard Paris’ story. He and I have since become good friends and colleagues. Not only does Paris have an INCREDIBLE life story, he’s a fantastic coach too. He’ll listen. He’ll ask you very specific and important questions. He’ll help you change your life. If you want to give your audience a truly unique and empowering experience book Paris Robinson.

    I first heard Paris speak in June of 2018 at a seminar for language, breath, and movement. In a room filled with world class speakers and experts in their field, Paris undoubtedly stole the show. His incredible story proves that ANYONE can do ANYTHING they put their mind to.

    When Paris Robinson came to speak at my gym he brought more than just words of encouragement – he brought a captivating energy that was palpable as soon as he entered the doors. We were honored to hear his story at CrossFit Pushin Weight and know that anyone who is struggling from where they are in life would benefit from discovering the path Paris has taken.

    Paris shifted my perspective and showed me what human beings are truly capable of. Since hearing him speak, I’ve noticed an increase in confidence, clarity, and peace within myself. Others have noticed a difference as well. Paris is a living testimonial of what the human spirit is capable of overcoming and achieving. Thank you, Paris Robinson, for setting the bar and sharing your gift in a such powerful way.
