Sean Darlow...

I’m Sean, and my main area of expertise is Strength Training and Sports Performance enhancement, using weights, plyometrics, power training and conditioning. I am also very experienced at fat loss coaching, post-injury rehab and muscle building.

I pride myself on teaching lifting technique to a high standard, and adapting well to any limitations a client may have. In all aspects of my work I balance science and practicality to make sure prospective needs are met.

I have trained a huge range of individuals, notably rugby players of different positions, rowers, footballers, basketball players, golfers, boxers and more.

When and why did you start working in the fitness industry?

I started as a personal trainer in early 2015. I have always been extremely active, and have played Rugby and Football for many years. Over 10+ years of training, I have learnt skills in many aspects, such as Strength and Conditioning for Sports Performance, Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting and Sustainable Fat Loss.
I love educating others, and as a result of this I took up Personal Training to share my thirst for knowledge and experience with others to help them to achieve their goals.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Inside the fitness spectrum, I am a massive Rugby fan and constantly have it on the TV, if I am not going to watch it live! I also enjoy watching Football when there isn’t Rugby on. I love lifting heavy weights and pushing my body to the limits with Weightlifting.

Outside of fitness I enjoy reading (frequently updating myself with recent fitness-related studies), as well as Action/Thrillers and Auto-Biographies. I love the outdoors, going for long walks with Gruff (our dog!) and travelling to new places. I am a bit of a secret nerd on the side, as I enjoy gaming and watching tv/film series, just don’t mention Game of Thrones…

And of course, going out for food on the weekends as a treat, washed down with a few Pints of Guinness or Thatchers!

What is your favourite healthy meal, and cheat meal?

As a healthy option, it would have to be a fillet steak, medium rare, with some veggies, onions, mushrooms and sweet potato fries. BBQ sauce to dip :)

For unhealthy, I am a FIEND for burgers, double/triple stack with multiple toppings if they are on the menu. Or a nice Italian-base pizza. Lovely glass of Malbec to accompany it.

Oh and Cheesecake. Cheesecake is life.
