About Sean

My name is Sean Mcphillips. I am a Personal Trainer and the founder of Supreme Training.

I have worked in the fitness industry since 2006. In that time I have worked with a variety of clients helping them all to achieve their goals, whether this is a single person wanting to reduce their body fat or a club requring me to work with their players/athletes to improve their overall strength and conditioning.

As well as Personal Training, I also instruct group fitness classes on a regular basis. I teach classes that I feel passionate about and that I believe people can really benefit from. I don't coach classes that are the latest trend that will only be around for a few months.

I have featured in many articles online and in various magazines (See publications in testimonial tab).

In the past I have trained and competed in several sports including Football, MMA, Running, Rock Climbing, Girevoy Sport (Kettlbells), Strongman, but I have finally found my calling! I am currently comepting as a Powerlifter and also run Supreme Training Powerlifting Club. I have competed at both regional (Yorkshire Northeast Powerlifting Federation) and National (Great British Powerlifting Federation) and who knows, hopefully one day at an international level! 

I am constantly trying to improve myself as a trainer so I can deliver the best service and advice possible to my clients and athletes. I am always working hard on keeping my qualifications up to date, and only going on courses that will benefit my style of coaching and training. As well as qualifications, I often attend seminars based around the UK. I am very proud of some the people I have worked with to help me become a better coach/trainer. I even went as far as traveling to Sacremento, California, to train at the world renowned 'Super Training Gym' owned by Mark Bell.
