Shawn earned his Exercise and Sport Science degree from Penn State University and operates a private practice in Western Springs, Illinois. Over the years, Shawn has held numerous industry certifications and therefore understands what and how the conventionalists think and believe. Over the past 25 years, his understanding of movement has evolved from that of an apprentice level to a level of mastery by continually seeking answers to his questions. Because he now intimately and thoroughly understands the most basic components of movement, he brings an unparalleled perspective to the table. Not only does he consistently deliver absolutely amazing results to his clients, he teaches his students to be able to do the same.

Dan Fichter owns and operates Wannagetfast Power/Speed Training, a performance training business in the Upstate NY area that offers training to elite athletes. Dan has traveled the country speaking to numerous coaches on speed training, strength training, and nervous system development and has showed them how to pull these elements into a comprehensive package that can substantially elevate an athlete’s speed, strength, and movement capabilities. Dan has coached football at the high school and college level for over 20 years and is currently the Head Football Coach at Irondequoit High School in Rochester NY. In 6 years as the head coach, he has won 2 Sectional Titles to add to the 6 he’s won as a head track coach at the same high school.
