Sean Sullivan, Owner

Sean Sullivan, Owner

Owner, CPT, NPTI

Sean Sullivan is the owner of Fitness Together in Brecksville where we've been helping busy women and men get healthy and fit since 2007. He grew up an athlete playing every sport you can think of, but had to stop playing contact sports in 6th grade when he was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. This is when eating a healthy diet became important. So, with no more football in his life, he excelled as a world champion Irish Dancer to stay active. During the height of his dancing career, Sean worked with a personal trainer for core strength and conditioning; so he knew the benefits of working one-on-one with a fitness professional. During high school, he made up his mind that he would pursue a career as a personal trainer to be able to help other people stay healthy and achieve their personal fitness goals. He is a certified personal trainer through the National Personal Training Institute since 2005. He has extensive experience training a wide range of clients, including Miss Ohio 2006, IFBB figure champions, recovering cancer patients from the Gathering Place and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Dance Team. Our clients look forward to working with Sean whenever he is at the studio. Sean is also very active in the community as the treasurer of the Brecksville Chamber of Commerce. When he is not working he likes to spend time with his family, especially his wife Marion. You can often find them with their 3 dogs hiking in the Cleveland Metroparks.
