Hear What Others Have to Say
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!.
Age Group Triathlete
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.
Professional Power Lifter
Shawn is an amazing person and trainer that I have been fortunate to work with on my fitness quest. He spends a tremendous amount of time listening to me and assessing my needs, and designs a 100% tailored program that is constantly evolving to ensure that I meet my goals. When I first started working with Shawn 10+ years ago, he trained me to run almost 30 marathons, Ironman triathlons, and countless other races. Then my fitness routine came to an abrupt stop and I did nothing for a number of years. Now my goals are focused around general fitness and getting back into better overall condition. Every session I have with Shawn is different. He designs an amazing variety of exercises and makes working out fun. He’s also a great person, and I look forward to our time together each week.
