Sean is an alumni from Berklee college of music with a focus in Trumpet Performance. As he was attending, he began to notice the consistent strain and overuse injuries that manifest from a musicians repetitive strain. He left Berklee to attend the Cortiva Institute of Boston. While he was there, he realized that he found music at the same time that he found bodywork. The very year when he started playing the trumpet, he broke his arm and began seeing a chiropractor that his family sees to this day. It was then he knew that it was meant to be a good career and life choice.

He gravitated toward neuromuscular, deep tissue, sports, myofascial and structural. Also, he has completed an orthopedic certification program to further his knowledge. Forever a student in finding balance, Sean approaches his massages as a way to achieve mental, physical, and emotion alacrity. Where there is imbalance, there is compensation; where there is compensation, there is habit. His goal is to work with his clients as a team to find these habits, and slowly work through them as well as getting the “kinks” out.

He is still a musician and frequently performs around the New England area.

    I forgot to record my splits after it was all said and done, no worries though it was ugly. 46 something, 5 rds/red band for pull-ups/push-ups from the knees, ugh.

    WOD: 37:35 w/ red band for pull-ups. The push-ups were the hardest for me. Gotta keep building that upper body strength. Can’t wait to re-do this someday with unassisted pull-ups <3

    I expected the pull ups to be tough after the first couple of rounds…and they were. However it wasn’t the push ups that got tough for me, but rather the sit ups. I’m thinking maybe I effectively used the core in the push ups, but tired it out in advance of the sit ups? Great workout, though…LOTS of calories burned!

    And let’s just say that I should have heeded the warning about potential “burn” from the sit ups. Ouch.

    Go Barbara! I think this should be on one of your campaign signs! 🙂

  8. sammy belton 10/16/2013 at 1:28 pm

    Based on these morning times this is going to take me over an hour….

    oof. Will be feeling this one tomorrow
    Awesome Quigley! Guys what is HTK? Should I know this?

    • Mike Quigley 10/16/2013 at 8:10 pm

      Kelly, you’re so HTK you don’t even know about it. Beretta called the 5:30am class “hard to kill” one morning a while back and since then it was adopted as a nickname.

  10. Chris Wilson 10/16/2013 at 12:52 pm

    48:53 Rx. First round was rock solid. Then that rock started falling downhill…

  11. Marc Piccuirro 10/16/2013 at 11:45 am

    Quigs was crushing butterfly technique today.
    32:24 (3:53/4:15/4:24/4:34/4:37) or so.

    Attention 530ers, the 530HTK tee shirt order form will be on the white board until Friday when the final order will be placed. Don’t miss out.

    44:19. Officially the longest workout in CFS history for me. Splits were 5-something, 6-something, 7-something, 7-something, 5-something (last round I had a little extra push from the rest of the 530HTK crew since they finished a full round ahead of me)
    Got the first 20 butterflies unbroken – that’s a first for me.
