About Shawn

I have a private gym in my home that is fully equipped for your needs. I also have a parking spot for you, and you can even use the extra shower if you need to. My hourly work is at a performance clinic, and a chiropractic clinic. I have experience was an extremely wide age range from 4 to 96 and deal with all sorts of injuries, post surgeries, top youth athletes etc. One of my strongest specialties is Posture Management, which can help with a vast majority of chronic pain syndroms. In some circles I am reffered to as The Wizard. 


I have a B.S. in Kinesiology (Health Promotion), have been training for about 8.5 years, serving over 11000 training hours. My certifications include: ACE Personal Training. ACE Movement Specialist. ACE Health Coach. NASM Personal Training. ViPR Training. Janda's Corrective exercise techniques200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, and Exercise Therapist. Movnat 1 & 2, and Brand X Youth Coaching.


I have a deep appreciation for movement, alignment, and mobility. I tend to focus on problem areas, and work in a pattern where stabilization is key to strength and power training. I have an advanced understanding of body mechanics, and can help you maximize your time moving and being active through a variety of services I am certified to offer. I can also teach you how to stop chronic pain or stop suffering from certain mechanical diseases. 


I think of exercises as movements, and prefer to train people with a wide variety of movements. Stability leads to strength, and variability is essential. I see the body as a unit and am often told I have an incredible ability to heal and teach. 


My favorite client story

Have been working with a teen for about 2.5 years 1-3 times per week, and have watched him grow in an infinite number of ways. He was difficult, anti social, and extremely low fitness when I met him. He is now an honorable young man, crushing his way through football in high school and very proud of where he has come from and where he will go. He has said to me before "My life would suck if I never met you, I'm going to meet with you until I die." and other gems. I sometimes grill with him on special occasions!

My favorite exercise

Literally pressing on a yoga strap wrapped around your thighs, I call it straps. I talked about it on KVUE one time. I call it straps. It will balance the heck out of your pelvis and prepare you for a wide range of activities.

My favorite quote

"If you keep doin' what yer doin', you'll keep gettin' what you're gettin'. " E-motion the movie.

My training philosophy

The whole system needs to work together. Defeating compensations, and managing your posture are integral to excellence. You must test, and retest. Always work towards the archetype shapes, don't challenge mobility you do not have. Train in a way that upregulates systems intelligently.

My training experience

Over 12000 hours with ages 4-96, with a variety of fitness levels, physical & mental complications, disabilities, and injuries, as well as high fitness individuals & athletes. I have worked with most chronic disease, diabetes, joint replacement, joint injury, scoliosis, spondylolysthesis, brain injuries, post stroke, fibromyalgia, spine fusion, prevented back surgery, neurological degeneration. I taught a senior fitness class for 2 years, worked with celebrities before, taught seminars, spoken publicly, teach yoga 3 years, train 6 years, pain control 2 years. You name it, I'll help you with it.
