I’m Shaun. Its nice to meet you!
First & foremost—I’m a Father of two amazing children.
Professionally, I’m a Fitness Trainer & Nutrition Advisor in the Sacramento, CA area. I have 8+ Years of life changing experience in various forms of Personal Training, Group Fitness Classes, Bootcamps, Nutrition Education, Gym Sessions & more. I motivate & coach people on how to create healthy habits, make positive lifestyle changes, & help my clients stay focused on their goals in health & fitness. My love & passion for fitness & health stem from lifelong participation in team sports, including soccer, basketball, baseball and cross country running, as well as extreme sports- water skiing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, cycling, inline skating, martial arts & my favorites—Footbiking & Paddleboarding!
For years I had been challenged with health issues involving weight gain & hypothyroid disorder. This motivated & inspired my personal goals & career focus around sharing fitness, proper nutrition & a healthy, active lifestyle.
8+ Years Experience
Graduate of The National Personal Training Institute of Santa Barbara, CA—I began my fitness career with Bacara Resort & Spa of Santa Barbara, CA—providing personal training, ocean side & studio group fitness classes, & private guided hikes.
After relocating to my hometown of Citrus Heights, CA—I became the sole Fitness Instructor at Planet Fitness in Citrus Heights, CA. My services were available for all members & I instructed over 7,600 fitness classes & individual exercise design programs.
I launched my own company to focus on better serving my clientele, while also being able to spend more precious time with my growing family. My home-based studio is well equipped with a dynamic variety of exercise equipment to assist clients in reaching their specific desired results. Or we take it outdoors & enjoy what nature & our city has to offer; the ability to work out anytime, just about anywhere! For me, being a well-rounded Trainer is beneficial to any client as everybody & every ‘body’ will have unique individual needs & goals.

"I’ve known Shaun for about 5 years and from the moment I met him I enjoyed his personality and he had a great energy and enthusiasm. I am not the easiest client to work with but Shaun has patience and can modify my workout plan to my liking. He enjoys giving back and helping other people achieve their goals. Shaun is one of the nicest people I’ve met and it was really a pleasure training with him."

"Shaun makes working out fun. I never thought I would have a personal trainer but I do and really enjoy my workouts. Shaun really pays attention and focuses all his attention on you. He is willing to go the extra mile to make sure you achieve your goals. He is very personable and friendly but with a nice professional touch. He is really flexible and willing to work around your schedule. I highly recommend Shaun to anyone that is looking to get into shape and live a healthy lifestyle. Thank you Shaun for all that you do!"

"I first started training with Shaun 3 years ago. I was completely out of shape. He not only developed a workout plan customized to fit my needs, he also patiently worked with me and my way of eating. It takes a partnership between training and eating to achieve your goals and Shaun helped me achieve that. More importantly, he’s not only been my trainer, he’s also an encourager. His program helped me to reach my fitness goals such as riding and surviving a 100 mile bike ride. To be successful in getting fit, you need a partnership between exercise, good eating habits and encouragement. Shaun does all of those things and more."

"At the time, my son was nine years old. He was struggling in school and needed an outlet for his frustration and anger. I knew Shaun from high school and thought working out would be the perfect outlet for my son. We signed him up with Shaun, my sons’ goal was to look like John Cena! Shaun and my son exercised together twice a week, and my son loved it! Not only is Shaun great with kids, he was a positive role model for my son. It didn’t take long before we noticed his little muscles growing! I even joined the workouts and it was great for my knees. Shaun is a very kind and caring fitness instructor and person, and he worked so well with my son, who has autism. Shaun kept him excited and encouraged him throughout the sessions. We had such a wonderful experience that I have already referred people to Shaun!"

"Thanks go out to Shaun and his dedication to my health and well-being. Not only is he a great fitness instructor, he is also very knowledgeable in diet and proper eating. Our work out days typically begin with how my past few days have been, what I have eaten, if I have completed any exercise and how my body feels. Each week I am surprised at how he challenges me to push harder and be better, while still remaining supportive and encouraging. Whether you are just starting to work out or a full-fledged gym monkey – Shaun can take you to the next level in your fitness and health routine!"

"I had rotator cuff surgery a year and a half ago and still had not recovered a basic level of strength in my shoulder. I also suffer from repeated hamstring pulls playing soccer. So I began working with Shaun as a personal trainer in June 2016. Within 2 months, Shaun has helped me lose almost 10 pounds and I have recovered significant strength in my repaired shoulder. He has also helped me greatly improve my core strength and flexibility (especially in my hamstrings), which has helped me remain injury free while playing soccer. I would highly recommend Shaun to anyone looking to achieve specific goals or to just improve their overall fitness. Let Shaun help you get fit!"

"Having Shaun as a trainer has been the best decision that I have ever made. He is positive and motivating. I hated working out and actually dreaded the thought of having a personal trainer, but after years of being overweight I finally gave in and gave it a try. I started with 1 day a week and after seeing results I upped it to 2 days a week. Shaun also worked with me to make a workout schedule so that I knew what to do on my days when I’m not training with him. He is passionate about what he does and is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of fitness and health. He wants to see you succeed. I don’t dread the thought of having a personal trainer anymore, I look forward to my workouts now because I know I have a trainer who is there to support me and help me have the healthiest lifestyle possible."
