Our Story

The Founders of Paragon Training Methods: Bryan Boorstein & Laurie Christine King (LCK)

They say the best companies or products come from solving a problem… and Paragon Training Methods actually started with solving mine.

If you met me in 2017, I was a total train wreck. I felt absolutely terrible, was uncomfortable in my skin, and was rapidly gaining weight despite diligently tracking every macro and morsel of food that went in my mouth. I had spent wayyy too many years not eating enough food, crushing my body endlessly with too much exercise, and ignoring the signals my body was desperately trying to send me to slow down and actually fuel and take care of myself.

I hadn’t seen a menstrual cycle in years. Sex drive and hormone levels were non-existent. My digestion was a mess. I chronically felt achey and run down. Needless to say, I was desperately trying to claw my way to feeling better and getting my health in better order. After a few months of spinning my wheels without success, I realized I was out of my league and needed help.

I reached out to Bryan Boorstein for 1:1 coaching and custom workout programming. When we found an approach to nutrition and a style of workouts that were able to get me back on my feet, feeling better, and looking great…  we knew we had to share it with the world. In 2018, we launched Paragon Training Methods, and what began as “my story” effectively became “our story.”

Our Paragon Training Methods community grew like crazy and our evidence-based workouts caught like wildfire because they were insanely fun, insanely effective, and we’ve helped thousands and thousands of amazing people around the globe work towards and smash their goals, look and feel incredible, and find better harmony with food, the gym, and their body.

The fitness industry loves telling people to shrink themselves, to starve themselves, and the industry does an excellent job of making everyone feel like they’re never enough. Since day 1, we’ve doubled down on helping others be empowered, educated, take up space, and be confident, strong, & well-fed.

The way you eat and exercise should provide freedom & peace of mind. And life’s too short to be at war with your body. We’ve helped so many people around the world and we can’t wait to change yours 🖤
