Gina Paulhus is the reason thousands of people in the greater Boston area have achieved a new level of fitness while enjoying the convenience and comfort of exercising at home and having a fitness professional come right to his or her door. In the past few years we have also expanded globally via online training.

Gina Paulhus had a vision back in 2003 that people at home could enjoy the services of a personal trainer without having to join a gym. 18 years later, this vision has never been stronger. Gina Paulhus had a vision that effective exercise at home based on sound principles could make it easier for a busy person with lots of interests and too little time to fit exercise into his or her life. Gina has 23 years of experience in the industry. She and her staff have helped thousands of clients who wanted to find an achievable, sustainable fitness solution to complement - not take over - their lives.

We can incorporate outdoor workouts when the weather's right!


Going back to how this company started - Gina wasn't sure if she would continue in her passion, which was fitness, or pursue a Masters in the fields Psychology or Business. In late 2003 one of Gina's clients made such an astounding turnaround in her life that Gina was convinced fitness was her calling. With a start-up budget of $650 and still in school, Gina purchased some office supplies, equipment, business cards, and obtained the necessary licenses to open up her in-home personal training idea for business. While many of her college friends were signing on the dotted line for corporate paychecks, Gina didn't know where her first client would come from.

Fast-forward to one year later, and Gina is publishing the book, "Mind Over Fatter," a 325-page gold standard resource about the physical AND mental aspects of diet and training (thank goodness that psychology degree came in handy!). Fast-forward to two years later, January 2006, and Gina continued to train clients as well as manage a fleet of other Home Bodies trainers, and she personally has helped over 400 individuals lose weight, gain body tone, and have more energy than they have had in years. Her website and Newsletter are utilized worldwide.

In 2019, Gina published Change Your Weighs and that book reached #1 in Amazon's new releases in her category.

Today, Home Bodies is 17 years old. Gina's drive and ambition she has applied to her business is the same drive and ambition that allows her to keep herself in shape. Gina also has utilized health and fitness to overcome many serious health problems and to remain competitive in gymnastics well past the time most gymnasts retire. She will inspire you to make similar astonishing changes in your life.

Gina will challenge you to demand more from yourself than you ever thought possible. Mediocre doesn't cut it in her world! At the same time, she is nurturing and compassionate when someone is struggling to get into shape. Gina will listen to your feedback and work alongside you to help you reach your goals. Gina wants to leave "no man behind" as a fitness trainer and a coach. Her staff is trained to provide the same.

About Angela Harrington, Certified Nutrition Coach, Certified Behavior Specialist and specializing in helping beginners.  

angela harrington

"I know what it's like to put in an enormous amount of effort only to have the scale, or clothing, or even blood tests say that I'm not doing enough. It's frustrating, and I know I'm not alone. I know that there are other women out there, like me, who crave to be in the healthy weight range; who crave to have jeans that don't do the muffin-top thing; and who would love to be in a restaurant and not feel ashamed at what their ordering or eating because of the stories we've put in our heads of what the other patrons "must be thinking." I'm also one of those people who have done it all: pills (even prescription), fad diets, nutritional systems, groups, etc."

About Dawn Boulay, Head Trainer, Master Trainer, and firm believer that Fitness Should Be Fun!

"I have been lucky to work in fields that follow my passions: fitness and food! I have been a professional chef for the last 13 years, catering to many clients with an interest in healthy meals (and let's not forget the word "delicious!"). 

I am a big proponent of functional training--that is, exercises that mimic or enhance our everyday movements. With my total body approach, I have been able to help my clients, not only to become more cardio-fit, strong and toned, but also to achieve balance and coordination...something very important as we age! 

My enthusiasm, hands-on experience and knowledge of diet and exercise would be an enhancement to anyone's workout."
