Sean is amazing and very knowledgeable. This is the place to go if you just want to know more about your body or if you want help getting to your desired goal. I got a hydrostatic weighing here which told me about my body fat percentage among a lot of other data that I was able to use to get to where I want to be.


Sean is amazing. Me and my fiancé went to him at the heaviest we have ever been and he helped us lose weight in a fun healthy way that gave us the tools to continue on our journey and get even strong. He is more than just a trainer he is someone who is with you in the journey and you can trust in ever step. I would go back to him any time and would recommend anyone to him. If it was possible he deserves more than 5 stars


This facility is the best of the best. State of the art workout equipment and testing machines to collect accurate and personal data. Highly recommend if you take your health and fitness serious.


I've always struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. In the middle of the pandemic, I reached my limit and had to make a change. Signing up with Sean at The Fit Lab was probably the best decision I've made for myself, and my health, in over a decade. In just 5 months, I am down almost 50lbs, and I intend to keep going. I look great, I feel great, and really it wasn't that hard to achieve.Sean is super flexible when it comes to your schedule and personal needs. He's also just a pretty chill guy to workout with. The thing I think I appreciate the most is the scientific approach to health. It's more than just "eat less, workout more." You do things like Hydrostatic Dunk tests to get an accurate idea of your lean to fat mass ratio, and you don't just do them once. It gives you a chance to really see what's working for you, and a chance to course-correct if something isn't.I can't recommend Sean and The Fit Lab enough. Seriously, if you're considering taking a positive step for your health - don't wait!


Sean P. is an amazing trainer. I was incredibly intimidated walking into a gym for the first time and didn’t know what to expect. Sean is so professional but at the same time easy going and makes the workout environment so comfortable. I started with Sean doing one-on-one personal training sessions and it was amazing to see myself slowly transform as a result of Sean’s guidance. I recently started the small group classes (5 people) and while everyone goes at their own pace , Sean is able to tailor the exercises and provide the skilled attention to each group members of an exercise is too difficult or needs adjustment. I can’t say enough good things about this gym!


I first found Sean through Yelp when looking for a personal trainer. I checked out his google/Yelp reviews, looked him up on Instagram via his gym page @thefitlabsd and his personal trainer page @seanpthetrainer and finally decided to reach out. After my first meeting with him he was someone I immediately wanted to work with and I signed up for a 12 week training package. In that 12 weeks I lost 35 pounds… felt better, stronger, slept better, developed better habits. I appreciate him and found him to be so effective that I signed up for a second 12 package.. so far I’m only 3 weeks in and have lost another 20 pounds. The workouts are always challenging but effective! It’s clear he knows what he’s doing- he has a wealth of knowledge and as long as you’re willing to do the work he knows how to get you to your goal. He never leaves me hanging and teaches or corrects me as needed when doing exercises. It’s also a plus that the side conversations are never boring and guaranteed he’ll make me laugh at least a few times during a session. I’ve been with other trainers before but Sean’s different- he has a science to it all and he has his own app that lets you track what you do in workouts/progress pics/ other data. Sean’s got my 5 star rating easily.3/4/22 Update: finished a 12 week training session and have lost 43 pounds! Also hit a deadlift PR of 290lbs- feeling stronger than ever. Here’s to another 12 weeks ahead!


Sean was awesome, I missed my 5AM appointment and he was super nice about it. Super patient in explaining to me how I can hit my goals. Highly recommend!


Sean at The Fit Lab helped transform my lifestyle into a healthy and balanced one through 3 months of personal training. I attained my goal weight and learned how to properly lift weights, as well as learn how to properly fuel my body through nutrition. The science behind his methods doesn’t lie, and I can confidently say that I will carry what Sean taught me through the rest of my life!


The Fit Lab has provided me with challenging workouts, strong accountability, and a lot of fun in the half year I've been going. Highly recommend for the personalized approached, work ethic, and care for your goals. Big shout out to Sean and Brandon for helping me forge ahead to reach my goals and improve my fitness, strength, and well-being.


Sean's integrative, personal approach and alacrity adjusting to my individual goals and limitations, has proven itself in my personal physical growth and active capacity. His diet recommendations have helped me maintain and increase …
