Sean is incredibly knowledgeable on all things running and fitness. Sean coached me for 8 months and brought my 5K down more than 90 seconds and took 40 minutes off my marathon PR to break 3 hours! He was very flexible on scheduling and thoughtfully answered countless questions on training theory, mechanics, run strategy, and diet. Sean had a great ability to gauge the fine line between tolerance for mileage build and avoiding injury. He strategically pushed me out of my monotonous training routine with a mix of speed work necessary to attain the level of physical and mental ability required to hit my goals. Perhaps most importantly, he is a very down to earth person who genuinely wants to see you succeed. I highly recommend working with Sean!
I started training with Sean in January 2013. This is our 5th year together. I've been coached by a lot of endurance athletes over the years and Sean is the best of the mix combining technical know-how, progress & feedback, real-time motivation, and ultimately results. Having Central Park as our track is extraordinary. We have an unlimited number of locations to run. And Sean is a speed work whisperer. The progress I've made on 100s, 200s, 400s, 800s, miles and an endless variety of other sets is why I keep coming back to Sean every year. We use the 5th Ave Mile as my annual marker set. And 2018 was my fastest 5th Ave mile!
My daughter's been coached by Sean for six years. His technical knowledge is excellent, but more importantly, Sean is just a really good person, building kids' confidence and love of the sport while pushing them to see what they're capable of achieving.
