MEET THE TRAINER
An athlete his entire life, Sean’s passion for training began early on. Improving his basketball game was what initially piqued his interest, having played for both his high school and college varsity teams. Sean turned his interest in human performance into a profession when he began training athletes, working professionals, and others in the Greater Boston community.
Sean’s unique training methodology stems from his experience working with a wide array of clientele in various training environments. Over the past decade+, Sean has trained in commercial strength & conditioning facilities, small and medium sized private studios, commercial big-box gyms, open parks and fields, and even in client homes. He offers extensive knowledge as a Certified Functional Strength Coach and Certified Personal Trainer. Sean also holds his Functional Movement Screen Certification, multiple Kettlebell certifications, and is CPR certified. He considers himself a life-long student and is constantly seeking out information to expand his skill set and improve his craft.
Equally as important to Sean's training pedigree is his "under the bar," or practical, knowledge base. He knows that it takes more than just a piece of paper that says you're qualified at something to be a good coach. Sean continues to train himself in the manner in which he trains his clients and prides himself on practicing what he preaches on a daily basis.
Thanks to his sincere passion and substantial experience, Sean has become a go-to source for fitness and nutritional direction. He works in both private and team/semi-private settings, paving a path for each individual to dramatically improve their performance and general well-being.
THE BIB PHILOSOPHY
EFFECTIVE NOT FANCY
Sean’s style optimizes training sessions to produce the maximal return on your physical investment. His streamlined Functional Training approach eliminates the unnecessary and instead focuses on the comprehensive development of basic human strength movements (Push, Pull, Squat, Hinge, Lunge, Carry). The workouts are not flashy or considered trendy but are brutally efficient when applied with consistency. Training in this fashion, Sean’s clients have been able to improve their performance, gain strength, boost their conditioning, decrease body fat, increase energy and elevate their moods.
DITCH THE DIET
In the traditional sense of the word, “dieting” is hopeless. Most fad diets are too restrictive and deny people the necessary calories and nutrients necessary for optimal health. Constant “diet hopping” can lead to weight fluctuation and a myriad of other issues. Applying sensible eating habits on a daily basis is a far superior tactic. Many people sabotage their own training goals by neglecting their general nutrition. At times, this is due to a lack of knowledge and understanding of reasonably healthier eating tendencies. Nourishment decisions present themselves to us daily and Sean assists people in navigating those decisions with increased confidence and awareness. He accomplishes all of this by educating his clients and providing them with quality nutritional guidance. The Meal Preparation Service assists the process and provides people with a resource to carry out their plans and remain diligent even during life's busiest times.
STARTS WITH YOU
From high school athletes to professional competitors, stay-at-home moms to working professionals, college grads to busy students - if you're committed to put in the work and determined to succeed, Built in Boston can and will help you fulfill your aspirations. You must possess a positive mindset in order to work with Sean, as your approach will directly effect your overall experience and subsequent results. The process needs to viewed as an opportunity, rather than a burden, and the proven combination of training and healthy eating should be embraced for its profound ability to better a person's self.
