Testimonials

Quotes In fact, Huebner not only shaved more than 10 minutes off his previous PR with a 2:17:05 ? an incredible 5:14 per-mile pace ? he qualified for the Olympic Marathon Trials in Los Angeles in February of 2016. "I'm thrilled, of course," he said. "There's no way for me to describe it ? I'm feeling relief, happiness, a sense of accomplishment, and also so fortunate. I know it sounds cliché, but there are lots of people in my life who helped me make this happen, and the more days go by the more I feel like I owe a lot to them." According to Huebner, who calls Portsmouth home, one of those people is his coach, Shawn Crotto. "I've been working with Shawn since January," Huebner said, "and a huge part of my improvement can be attributed to him." Citing he could not be "happier for him," Crotto said all signs leading up to the race pointed to success. Quotes

Quotes 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. Quotes

Quotes 'In 2007, I had competed in two triathlons in May and June. My results were absolutely horrible, despite working out VERY HARD with a trainer all Fall/Winter/Spring in preparation for the triathlon season. Based upon my terrible performances, I was considering quitting. I thought maybe endurance events wasn't a good fit for me. A friend suggested I call Shawn before throwing in the towel, and Shawn assured me that he could help. After only two months of working with Shawn, I finished in the top ten at the Timberman Sprint. In September, I competed in my first Olympic distance event and placed third in my class! I never thought I'd could complete an Oly distance, never mind place third in an event. Shawn's expertise played a huge role in my rapid improvement. Training for triathlons without a good plan is a massive waste of time and energy. Most people , myself included, do not have the expertise to build a workout plan that is effective. Every morning, Shawn emails me my workouts a Quotes

Quotes 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

Quotes As a busy professional in mid-life, something always seemed to interfere with my exercise program, whether it was work, stress, family, other commitments, inerita, or whatever. And whenever I did get a routine of some sort going, inevitably I'd get sick and fail to get back on track. HAving Shawn as a trainer has changed everything for me: NO MORE EXCUSES! With his positive attitude and great knowledge of all aspects of physical training, he really keeps me on track. I've got more strength, flexibility, and stamina than I've had in a long time. Best, of all, in the process we've become, and remain, good friends. Quotes

Quotes After I lost weight, I was determined to keep it off. I had lost weight before, but I had always gained it back. Hiring Shawn as my personal trainer was one of the best decisions of my life! I've been working out with him for over 2 years, and, not only is the weight still off, but my family and friends tell me I'm in better shape than I've ever been in my life. The endurance and strength training have given me more energy to do the things I enjoy, and have given me increased stamina when I travel for business. I am a "lifer" with Shawn - I'll work out with him forever, if he'll have me! Quotes

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 Quotes
