About Sean

Coming from a family of Royal Marine Commandos I was introduced to exercise at a very early age.

Every time my dad was home on leave he would always find time to lift weights, do a mini circuit or go for a run. As I got older I went from watching him exercise to taking part with him when he was at home.

It was during this time that I found a passion for health and fitness. I had started to notice changes in my fitness levels and physique that had began to make me stand out from the crowd at school.

I was scouted to play football for Everton FC's youth team and cricket for the Wigan Schools' select team.

I was also selected to represent the school at numerous athletics events. I was fascinated with how the body worked and how it could be manipulated through diet and exercise to achieve various goals.

It was at this point that I decided that I wanted a career in health and fitness.

I specialise in strength and conditioning, hypertrophy training and weight loss and have a thorough knowledge of all kinds of fitness training.

I am used to working with a broad spectrum of clients from complete beginner to elite athlete and with my passion and knowledge I have a proven track record of helping people achieve their health and fitness goals.

What you'll get from me as your personal trainer

As your Personal Trainer I will show you how diet, training and guidance can help you achieve your fitness goals. I will show you that with dedication and commitment progress can be achieved. We will see improvements in diet and training so that we as a team can achieve our goals.

What I expect from you

I am looking for 100% commitment, no excuses. I need dedication, enthusiasm and the will to succeed. If you can guarantee me this, I can guarantee you results.

Why you should consider personal training

Why do I need personal training?

Personal training with Inspiring healthy lifestyles

Sometimes you need a little extra help to hit your fitness goals.

You're running a marathon and need to plan, and stick to, your schedule to achieve a personal best.

Maybe you're looking for a training partner, or an accountability buddy to make sure you stay on track.

Or maybe you simply want someone there to tell you what to do and when to train.

That's where we come in.

A personal trainer is your concierge to a better body, a better race, a better game - and a better life.

Personal training with Inspiring healthy lifestyles is your gateway to a new world of fitness.

Personal training is for anyone and everyone, for people of all ages, body types and levels of fitness.

We can all benefit from personal training. Whether you are an exercise beginner or elite athlete, our qualified personal trainers can help you achieve maximum fitness results, optimising your exercise for your individual body and fitness goals.

Here's why personal training is so much fun - and will make you feel fantastic:

  • You get a totally personalised session. No distractions - and it's all about working on your progress in whichever direction you choose. At each of your Inspiring healthy lifestyles personal training sessions you'll get all the guidance you could possibly need, but more importantly you'll be totally motivated making sure that whenever you work out, you'll be completely focused and inching closer to your goals.
  • Personal trainers will make sure you're doing everything right. If your posture needs correcting, or your technique is a little out, we'll be there to sort it out.
  • You'll have a workout and nutrition programme that's ideal for your needs, to help you run that marathon quicker or simply feel a million dollars. It's your choice, but we'd also recommend a weekly weigh-in, and a monthly full body composition session to give you that boost we all need that we're achieving great things.
  • And let's not forget the trainer. We've already mentioned we're lucky enough to have personal trainers who have each had their own mountains to climb. They've been in your shoes. Your fitness challenges are theirs. That's why dozens of people have already hit the heady heights of fabulous fitness and feeling fantastic. Throughout your personal training package you can enjoy the support and attention that you'll remember for a lifetime of fitness.

What are the benefits of personal training?

  • SOLID, CONSISTENT, NON-JUDGEMENTAL SUPPORT. Each hour you spend with your trainer is an hour to focus on you and only you! They will provide consistent feedback to help you better yourself and achieve your goals.
  • CORRECT TECHNIQUE AND FORM. Trainers pay attention, cue both your mind and your body and help you achieve your goals more quickly by making sure you are doing each exercise correctly.
  • FRESH NEW PERSPECTIVES & IDEAS ON HEALTH, NUTRITION AND FITNESS. Trainers are able to use their education, knowledge and experience to provide you with tips and tricks to help you develop a healthier lifestyle.
  • MOTIVATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT. Your Personal Trainer will motivate and believe in you even when you are feeling at your lowest and don’t believe in yourself. Can't is not in a trainer's vocabulary.
  • REACH AND MAINTAIN YOUR GOAL. Working with a trainer will allow you to achieve the results that you cannot achieve on your own. Each person’s goals are extremely personal. Whether it be weight loss, injury rehab, or companionship. A trainer is going to develop goals that will lead you down a path to success.
  • MAXIMISING THE EFFICIENCY OF YOUR WORKOUT TIME. You will burn more calories in less time when working with a trainer. A trainer develops a program that is efficient and allows you to get the most in, in the shortest amount of time.
