Sean has been with us at Strength Happens for 10 years! He came to us as a skinny, computer programmer who spent a little bit too much time seated in front of the computer, and he stands in front of us today as a skier, rock climber, Phish concert goer, total and complete badass. He has transformed his body with dedication and now stands confident, ready to take on any challenge.
