|SPEAKING OF SEAN…..We sat down to chat!
We had a few minutes to spend with Sean recently and we found out what makes this great guy tick!PTF: What motivates you to get to the gym?
Sean: My motivation is simple. BE BETTER! Better than I was yesterday, last year. Just show progression.
PTF: What has helped you be successful at your attempts to stay in shape?
Sean: Staying positive. Even when life seems to knock me down, I learn from the experience. I don’t get beat the same way twice!
PTF: What do you like most about working out – and working! – at PrimeTime?
Sean: Being in the Navy, I’ve worked out in the best gyms in the world. And I’ve worked out in the worst. I love the ‘family’ here at PrimeTime. To see the regular faces and welcome them daily is AWESOME!
PTF: Tell us a little about your training background and how it has influenced you today.
Sean: As a civilian trainer, I’ve helped several folks reach their goals. It’s a bit different for military, where fitness is a must!
PTF: What’s your favorite form of exercise (as if we don’t already know!)?
Sean: As everyone who sees me knows…KETTLEBELLS!
PTF: What do you do when you are not exercising? Got any hobbies?
Sean: My full-time position is a firefighter/EMT at Boeing South Carolina. I love to cook and dabble in mixology. The kitchen is my favorite room in the house!PTF: What do you do when you are not exercising? Got any hobbies?
PTF: Tell us about your family.
Sean: I love my children. They range in age from 9 to 25. They are my motivation . . . they are always looking to say “I beat Dad!”
PTF: Is there something about you that not many people know and most would be surprised by?
Sean: I was a skateboarder for the majority of my life. It made me the man I am today, as it gave me the courage and belief in myself to do anything I set my mind to. My high school sport was not football or basketball, like most people would think – but bowling! I was a nerd . . LOL!
PTF: Do you have any words of wisdom for others?
Sean: Even if you are afraid to try something, tell yourself I can do this!” And believe it.
PTF: Why do you want to be in the 2018 Charleston Animal Society’s Firefighter Calendar?
Sean: To be included in the calendar would be an honor. But even more important is raising funds for animals and helping them find homes and receive necessary health care! I want to give back in honor of a dog I adopted years ago… Neves was like a child to me. Loved that dog . . .
And we love you, Sean! Thanks for all you do. We’ll be “pulling” for you on Saturday as you’re “PUSHING FOR PUPPIES!”
