WHAT CLIENTS SAY

I Highly Recommend Him

I had an awesome experience training with Sean. He put together a personalized and comprehensive workout plan for my unique goals AND he helped me stay motivated and accountable for the three months that we were working together. Not only is he knowledgeable and has the technical training experience, but also he is down to earth and an overall great guy! I loved that he never lost sight of my vision and goals, and that he was always accessible for quick question or motivational boost. I highly recommend him 🙂

Uplifting Guidelines

Sean helped me and my sister with a good starter schedule when we got serious about fitness. Although we live in The Netherlands, Sean provided us with lots of info and help during a personal Skype call.
Sean helped us toward our health goals with advice about our diet and weekly workout schedule. Because of his uplifting guidelines we got more confident and excited about weight training. Our fat percentages are slowly dropping and we are able to lift more each week!

He goes above and beyond

I have been working with Sean for 2 months now. As a trainer myself I know the need to have my form looked at from an outsiders view. I strongly believe that everyone, even top athletes need a coach or a trainer to keep them focused on their goals, and help see their form from an a different angle and perspective. This is exactly what Sean has been able to do for me. In the short time he has been training me, I am already seeing tons of improvements, and I am well on my way to the goals he is helping me achieve. He goes above and beyond with his research on the body, and how to do all the progressions for different movements. He is not only making me a better athlete, but also a better trainer. I highly recommend him!!!

Tremendous Service

Tremendous service from Sean at Upside Strength. He has changed my whole perspective on training and helped me both inside and outside the gym. I like how Sean is very receptive to feedback and will work with you to achieve your goals. In my opinion, a good coach is one that is hands on and wants to learn as much as you do, which is exactly what you get when you sign up to train with Sean.

A Great Motivator

I found Sean on Twitter and thought I'll give him a try. It was easy to get to know him and share my vision of health with him. Together we work on achievable goals and long term strength and fitness. That was very important to me and for the first time, through his encouragement, I now have a circle of support around me to keep me going. He incorporates a lot more than one weekly workout and has an amazing wealth of knowledge for any and all questions I have had so far. We have only been on this journey for a few months now but I look forward to keeping it going, working through the usual ups and downs. Sean is a great motivator and keeps in touch on an almost daily basis with tips and tricks. I really enjoy his posts on a variety of social media channels so that his advice is usually just a click away. With Sean as my trainer I can actually see long term success in my future. Sean: Thank you

An Amazing Coach

Sean is an amazing coach. I use the word coach intentionally because he is far more than a personal trainer. Helping me sort out my goals and priorities inside and outside the gym! Sean listens to your needs and tailors his approach to ensure your success. Because he truly cares that you reach your goals! Thank you Sean! Your support means the world to me.

The Best Trainer I Have Ever Had

Sean is by far the best trainer I have ever had. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, and all around nice guy. It is definitely clear that he only wants the best for his clients. He provides a tremendous value for all the services he offers. If you want to hire one of the best, look no further.

Sean Listened To My Goals

I have been working with Sean for 2 months now and I have already noticed changes in my flexibility and strength. Sean listened to my goals and has tailored a program that meets my needs as well as my schedule. I have never met anyone who is more supportive of my desire to get in good shape at my age. At 55 years old, it takes a lot of work to get your body to react and it is easy to get discouraged. Sean makes sure I don't go to that dark place. In spite of my whining, I actually look forward to our face to face workout and explaining how my home workouts went for the week.

Extremely Patient

I have been training with Sean Seale for about 4 months now, and I don't regret a single minute of it. I had a lot of demands for myself when I first met Sean, and he has me on the road to reaching all of my goals! He starts you off slowly, and is a stickler for doing the exercises with the proper form. Then, before you know it, you are doing things you never thought possible. He is extremely patient, encouraging, and passionate about what he does. He caters exactly to what your individual goals may be. For me, the improvement in overall strength and fitness has led to an increase in self-motivation and confidence.

A Superb Trainer

Sean is a superb trainer. He's extremely knowledgeable and explains every move so that I know what I'm doing and why I'm doing it -- which is super helpful. His obsession with form is keeping me injury-free. Non-judgemental, encouraging, motivating -- I actually look forward to training sessions which is a first! 🙂 And to top it all off, he's a genuinely nice guy who sincerely cares about his clients' progress. Looking for a kickass trainer? Sean's your guy.

Very Knowledgeable

Sean has been fantastic! Easy to follow plans that aren't cluttered with obscure exercises, a nice back to basics with a few modifications here and there to spice up the workouts. Very knowledgeable, and easily accessible to ask questions. Highly recommend working with Sean if you want to achieve your fitness goals, no matter what they are!

Impressed With The Guidance And Support

Although I've never seen a personal trainer before, I have been very impressed with the guidance and support I've gotten in just three sessions with Sean. He has an intuitive understanding of human movement that shines through both in person and in his series of excellent youtube videos. Sean is easy to communicate with, and was able to put together a program perfect for my specific goals. I would recommend him to people at any level of fitness, whether just starting out or looking to maximize their training.
