What People Are Saying
"Seattle Marina's Catcher for 15 years. Just recently retired and Shawn is truly a professional at rehab injury”
Professional Baseball Player
As a multi-decade competitive runner/triathlete (too stubborn/dumb to quit!), I have wrestled with the constant challenge of balancing training smart, an aging body, and overuse injuries.
Being 65 years old with many physical limitations (most outstanding being a 6 knee surgeries and osteoarthritis), I experienced frustration and failure trying to maintain a rigid, repetitive training routine I followed in my younger days.
This is where Shawn Crotto comes in...
Already very instrumental in keeping me going with massage, I decided to have Shawn help me with a coaching plan. Bottom-line, this past triathlon season has very satisfying and successful both in terms of performance and fun. I not only surpassed all competitive goals, but did so with daily enthusiasm, high energy, and strong motivation.
Shawn considers all individual aspect in developing a personal coaching plan. He uses daily feedback and his extensive knowledge and experience of the athletic body and training response in developing a detailed individual training plan.
I highly recommend Shawn if you have competitive goals and/or seek a lifestyle of fun and fitness!.
Great deep tissue massage from Shawn Crotto-Training in Portsmouth, NH. I certainly needed it as my glutes, quads and psoas were tight. If you're in New England area i'd certainly recommend him!
Matt Russell Professional Triathlete
“I’ve trained with Crotto Training and Nutrition for quite a while now and have never felt better or fitter. The results are stunning. I lost a lot of weight, but more importantly, I feel young again. Highly recommended!”
“I have worked with Shawn in a number of capacities over the past three years. It's hard to believe that I have been working with Shawn in areas that are important to me for such a long time. At first, I simply thought that adding a personal trainer to my schedule would change my overall fitness and appearance. I was dead wrong. There is a personal commitment to working with Shawn as he dedicates himself to each client's particular goal(s). However, Shawn instills the need for mental and dietary change with each of his clients. I quickly realized that obtaining a trainer does not achieve one's goals without listening and implementing the suggestions that Shawn makes in regards to workout, diet and continual fitness outside of Shawn's training sessions. Shawn is not a passive trainer; rather, he remains quite active throughout the training process in and outside of the gym.”
Anthony Moulton Marathon Runner
“Winner at Lions Spring Sprint (age group 35-39) This is my first season using MAP. Under the advice of my coach, Shawn Crotto, it has helped me recover faster and make the gains I needed to this season...and look how early it already is. My running has dramatically improved and my bike efforts have been stronger, I find that I am no longer exhausted at the end of a long training day, when my role as a mother and care giver needs to kick into high gear! In the three races I have competed in this year I have come in 2nd OV (1st AG) for the first 5K of the season, 5th OV (1st AG) in the first Sprint Tri of the season, and had an outstanding 3rd race with a top 10% finish! I'm looking forward to the the balance of this racing season with MAP. Sincerely, Kathleen Donatello Eliot, ME Quotes!”
"Shawn is amazing. I had a total of 8 surgeries on my knee over the past 15 years and I was suffering from a lack of mobility and chronic pain. Through an integrated treatment plan of massage diet and exercise Shawn not only eliminated my knee pain, but dramatically increased my flexibility and helped be bring my blood pressure down to normal. Shawn's training style is truly unique - he is incredibly flexible with my busy work schedule and pushes me aggressively to achieve while listening carefully to my feedback. I can't imagine life without Shawn's advice and training on a regular basis
“Shawn has been instrumental in keeping me healthy enough to do what I love to do -lift heavy weights. While he's known for his work with triathletes, runners, cyclists and swimmers, he's been without question the most productive massage therapist I've been to. He listens to what's wrong, helps me figure out what I can do to avoid the same injury in the future, and does what he has to do to help me heal quickly. I particularly like that he's willing to experiment and try new things. The last time I got hurt my doctor told me 4 months and I could begin training again. After meeting with Shawn, 8 weeks later I obtained a state record in the lifting competition I was entered in. It works. Highly recommended. ”
