In March 2014 I asked Sean if he would assist me in increasing my physical fitness. At that time, I toyed with the idea of participating in the SB Triathlon sprint, thinking that I was looking a year plus out. Well, in August 2014 I completed that sprint with Sean's help and support the whole way.
Because his integrity and his love are so very clear Sean is able to create an environment where I fell safe to focus on my personal progress, not on his needs. I can take risks. I can experience the joy of discovering my own ability and strength.
I think of Sean as a dear friend, one I am glad I had the good fortune to meet.

I met Sean about a year ago, when I did a Fitness Assessment test and asked me if I thought about joining a gym. I told him that I was very hesitant because of my limitations(I am 3 feet , 6 inches) and did not know if I would be able to reach or use any of the equipment. He took me in as my trainer and helped me to try different machines and exercises that I would be able to do. I was afraid of the Treadmill and Sean helped me gain confidence by encouraging me and also assist in develop 6 routine workouts. I have lost 15 lbs in one year compared to 3-4 lbs with Weight Watchers in 6 years.

I've known Sean for about 4 years. He's keenly aware of my body's limitations from past injuries and has put the confidence of knowing "I can" back into my life where doctors told me "I can't". Because of not only Sean's knowledge as a trainer, but his belief in me, I'm competing in triathalons, half marathons and even a bikini contest! Plus, he's a very astute listener and has been my shoulder to cry on...before he then kicks me in the rear working out! I adore working out with him and the friendship that has evolved.

Sean is great. True knowledge in strengthening and rehab for people with low back issues. I have been working with him since December '13 and have made great strides. He uses Foundation Training with his personal training which is awesome. I have better posture and can accomplish day to day tasks easier with no back issues. (like picking up my laundry basket).

Sean has been my trainer for 3 years. With all the hard work he puts me through, that 3 years feels like a long time. In that time I've learned so much about fitness and the dedication it takes to make a complete lifestyle choice toward a goal of health and wellness. He lets me know when I can be doing a lot better and am just slacking off. I have always been satisfied with every training session - "my muscles feel so big now." I always leave feeling like I could conquer the world. He pushes me past my limit because he believes in me and knows I can do it. The transformation I feel after each workout is as dramatic as seen in Olivia Newton-John's "Physical."


HEHEHE; a little Manny humor. :)

Sean has been my trainer for more than 3 years. Besides his ever present upbeat attitude, he clearly knows what he is talking about. He pushes me to do things I don't want to do but should. I am in the best shape of my life and could not have done it without Sean's expertise, motivation, and Wit:)

In the four years that Sean and I have been training together he has helped me evolve from a person that had a simple goal of wanting to be more active and lose weight into someone that now competes in triathlons. He is phenomenal. I have lost over fifty pounds training with him. Our discussions about nutrition have inspired me to become more creative in my own kitchen at home. He is very supportive and tells you exactly what you need to hear to challenge yourself. Sean has also been there to listen when I am frustrated and assists me in figuring out the next step in my fitness progress. Sean has helped me become more comfortable in my own skin and I will never be able to thank him enough for making that happen.

I have been working out with Sean regularly for almost 3 years. Not only have I become stronger physically, I have become stronger mentally too. I believe more in myself and my ability to take on physical challenges. I think to myself when Sean gives me a task I don't think I can do - "if Sean thinks I can do it, then I can". Sean knows me well enough now that it seems he can tell when I need a good laugh while we are working out, or if there is something I need to talk about. I am proud of the work outs I have accomplished with Sean encouraging me.
