Sean grew up in New England as a theatre kid who did not want anything to do with health or fitness. Significantly overweight for most of his life, he came to the fitness industry after a career in teaching and following being diagnosed with diabetes and high blood pressure.
Realizing at 40 that things weren’t going to change if he didn’t change, Sean embarked on a journey to develop a better relationship with nutrition, exercise, and overall life balance.
Sean brings his teaching experience to the gym, trying to meet all clients where they are and leading them down their own paths of discovery. He doesn’t focus on hard line tenets or beliefs, but a mixture of pieces that work for him and for his clients. This is your journey, he’s simply there to guide you along.
Sean has a background in education, earning his Teaching Credentials in 2002 and his Masters of Education from Notre Dame de Namur University. Formerly a high school teacher, Sean later moved into fitness once he discovered the power of health and fitness in his own life.
His background in education helps him to be an amazing teacher of movement, while his own personal journey helps him to empathize and support others struggling to find their paths to fitness.
