Specialty: Speed and agility training; core and balance training.
"I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying." --Michael JordanBio: Through his work at the Center, Sean has enjoyed the privilege of helping improve the lives of others. He wants to continue this with each member. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Kutztown University, Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Rutgers University, and Master's degree in education from Arcadia University. Sean earned his certification as a personal trainer from the American Council on Exercise. He is CPR/AED certified through the Red Cross.
In addition to his experience at the Center, Sean worked as a middle school baseball coach at Germantown Friends Academy. There, he made practices functional and purposeful while keeping it fun.
Sean likes to incorporate cardio elements in his workouts by using small circuit training. This involves training two muscle groups simultaneously, with additional core work, to keep the body in constant motion and burning calories. He believes a strong core is essential to every facet of life. His sessions always include core strengthening and stabilizing exercises to make traditional movement patterns more challenging.
In his free time, Sean loves snowboarding for its sheer simplicity. He considers it his own form of meditation. In winter months, he snowboards twice a week for full days, losing weight in a season others often gain. He also likes hiking; he finds a good hike especially rewarding when it leads to a secluded waterfall where he can swim.
Sean thrives on adventure. He loves to travel to new places, meet new people, and enjoy new experiences. He is a Green Bay Packers football fan. His favorite foods include pizza, sushi, and yogurt with granola. Best drink: chocolate milk. Sean lives with kindness in his heart. He never wants to be the cause of anyone's bad day.
Through exercise, Sean wants to add quantity of years to member's lives, and quality to those years as well.
