Born and raised in Stamford, CT, Paul Sandalo discovered fitness at the early age of 8. As a young child, he admired boxing and body building legends such as, Rocky Marciano, Muhammad Ali, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbo and many more.

Nevertheless, through perseverance and a strong will to succeed, he was able turn his passion for fitness into a career.
