Story by Meredith Nelson / May 11, 2017

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!”
