AN INTRODUCTION TO
Hi, my name is Sean Burgess. I am a Personal Fitness Trainer, Sports Coach, Academic Lecturer and Qualified Masseur who has been working in the Fitness industry since 2006. To give you some background about the journey to founding ‘Sean Burgess Fitness (SBF)’ it all started in 2010 a couple years into my student life at Bournemouth University where I attended after relocating to the South-West from North London.
Heading into the 3rd year work placement of my degree I made the decision to brave it and start my own self-employed personal training business instead of seeking employment elsewhere. Pleasingly the decision proved to be justified, as I was able to build an immediate client base and quickly became the busiest trainer within the gym where I worked from. Now many years on I have delivered more than 15,000 personal training sessions and I don’t intend to slow down anytime soon.
In the time from 2010 to now I have worked with a diverse variety of clients which ranges across many different demographics of the general public to Elite International Athletes in Athletics, Football, Fencing and Rugby Union to National and Regional Champions in Kickboxing, Swimming, Golf and Gymnastics.
As you might expect there has been many true-life changing transformations in this period ranging from clients losing between 5 and 10 stone in weight to others gaining 20+ kilo’s in muscle to those which have just enjoyed completing a fitness event or successful rehabilitation period before going back into competitive sport or normal daily living activities.
To qualify as a specialist fitness trainer, I have a CPD and academic record that includes a BSc (Hons) degree in Sports Management and an MSc degree in Sports Science Strength and Conditioning. In addition I have acquired coaching experience in elite sport with Enfield Haringey Athletics club and Rugby Union clubs including London Wasps, London Welsh, Saracens and Bournemouth RFC.
Alongside running Sean Burgess Fitness and delivering personal training myself for groups and individuals I also lecture on Sport and Fitness at Bournemouth University and teach/assess for different professional fitness qualification providers such as Premier Training International. In addition to these roles I also oversee and deliver the strength and conditioning training at the Dorset Dockers Rugby Football Club whilst also coaching the Dorset and Wilts County Under 15 rugby union squad.
Despite many years of coaching going by I still take immense satisfaction in seeing the physical and psychological transformation of any client, small group or team achieving their goals; unquestionably I am as passionate now about what I do as I ever have been.
You can be rest assured that all of my other trainers share this same passion and strive like myself to keep seeking further improvement in themselves to attain even greater results with their clients.

Apprentice Personal Trainer
Clare originally started fitness training from a very young age through learning various forms of dance, this would later turn into a professional career ending only when she graduated with two dance theatre/musical diplomas from Performer’s College, Essex in 2010.
Angela is an experienced group fitness instructor who has joined the Sean Burgess Fitness team to help lead our early morning Invincible Bootcamp (IBC) courses in both Poole and Bournemouth. Despite coming from more of a dance fitness background Angela has had no issues diversifying her skills and has quickly become a very popular coach amongst our IBC participants.
Rick is a keen sports enthusiast having represented Cheshire U19’s in both Rugby Union and Football. Off the back of these early achievements he then briefly went on to play professionally for Sale RUFC before his Rugby career at the top level was unfortunately curtailed by a serious knee injury.
As an accredited sport psychology coach and member of the British Psychological Society, Darren has worked with numerous athletes and teams, including international sailors, marathon runners, triathletes, clay pigeon shooters, county cricketers, semi-professional footballers and multiple sports academies.
The psychological demands of sport and exercise can be stressful, which is why it’s crucial that we effectively cope with the hurdles that may arise to maintain a level of enjoyment and stave off frustration.
Darren provides a bespoke service for all of his clients to help them achieve their goals by coping more effectively with the psychological demands of their sport and training. As an academic researcher in sport psychology, all provided support is drawn from evidence-based skills and techniques.
Consultations with Darren can help address confidence, emotional control, motivation, decision-making, resilience and, performance under pressure. Darren believes in making sport psychology, sometimes seen as complex and mysterious, simple and accessible for people of all backgrounds and levels of sport/fitness.
Consultations can take place in person at Bournemouth University, through skype or over the phone and are priced at £35 p/h for Sean Burgess Fitness customers.
For further information about booking a consultation please contact Darren through either of the mediums listed below.
