CEO and Founder


Shawn is an AFPA (American Fitness Professionals and Associates) Certified Personal Trainer and is Owner and Lead Coach of Lion’s Den Fitness Atlanta. Shawn offers 1-1 Personal Training and coaches several classes a week.

Shawn specializes in weight loss and muscle conditioning through HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and working with clients who have a history of injuries or medical restrictions. His workouts are challenging and never boring.

Shawn relates to many clients who struggle with weight control as he was once 65 pounds heavier due to poor diet, lack of exercise, and stress. He tried every “diet” our there but nothing worked until he created his own nutrition and workout program that ANYONE can follow. He has maintained this lifestyle and now shares his strategy with others full-time.

Shawn has a BS in Business Management, and an MBA from Christian Brothers Unitversity in Memphis. He is also Certified in Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes and is recently completed continuing education in “How Not to Die: Foods That Prevent Illness, Disease, and Death”.
