His commitment to offering up-to-date information to his clients and non clients alike comes as no surprise to me. Having known Sean for over ten years, I can vouch for his personal character and work ethic in everything he does. As you begin to read his articles on nutrition and training you will find a well thought out, research based analysis of each topic. His opinions are supported by both scientific research and "in the field" experience. I recommend his articles to any individual wanting to learn about the science and application of exercise/nutrition for the first time or someone trying to update their knowledge."

Client Testimony For Sean Casey
"I had the fortunate opportunity to work with Sean Casey at the Athlete's Performance Institute. While coaching, Sean demonstrated a strong work ethic and a desire for perfection. Sean's knowledge of multiple training methods helped prepare me for that season. His greatest concern was making his athletes better each day. Sean Casey is a rising star in the fitness industry."
- Brady Quinn. NFL Quarterback - Denver Broncos.
"I first knew Sean Casey from the excellent articles he posted on the internet. He clearly knew what he was talking about, both with regard to training and to nutrition. His research was always sound and the fact that he always quoted his sources, further increased my esteem. When I needed advice on my nutrition, Sean was the obvious choice. Still, I had some doubts if even he could help me. I am a middle-aged, competing weightlifter from Europe, who suffers from a digestive disorder; Not exactly your typical college aged athlete."
"Sean exceeded my expectations. He studied my training schedule, food intake, medications and came up with a dietary program that exactly fitted my needs. He taught me the principles of what to eat and when; My meals now fuel my workouts and my supplements no longer conflict with my medications. To make things easier, Sean even took the trouble to convert everything to metrics for me. Since I've started to work with Sean, I am fitter and stronger than I ever was and haven't gained any weight despite eating more food."
"I am very lucky to have worked with Sean. If you're serious about your performance, I can recommend no one better."
- Alexandra Faber. 2011 World Masters Level Olympic Weightlifter.
"A few years ago I contacted the University of Wisconsin-Madison for nutrition and weight loss info for both myself and the high school wrestling team that I coach. I was informed that Sean Casey was the guy I wanted and I quickly saw why... Sean explained to us how the food we ate affected our performance on the wrestling mat. With Sean's help, my wrestling team and I stopped dwelling over weight loss and began to concentrate on how to properly fuel our systems. The emphasis of Sean's dietary program was not centered around food restriction; rather it was focused on incorporating healthier food choices to help us attain our specific weights. Additionally, he taught us how to read food labels when evaluating our food options.
Throughout my lifetime, I have tried many different ways to lose weight and have always failed. To date, I am please to say that I personally have lost weight and our wrestlers have much less to worry about during the season. I truly doubt that we would have learned everything we did and feel so good about reaching our goals without Sean's help. Sean is the utmost professional with a great understanding of his clients needs. I am thrilled to be able to say that I worked with him."

Client Testimony For Phil Stevens
"Patience, knowledge, a love for lifting, and an undying desire to help people, keeps me coming back for more Phil advice. There is always something to be learned from him, both in life and the gym."
- Christina Anderson , Power lifter and former runner
"I met Phil over two years ago. He had been training my husband in powerlifting and after several discussions about women and the sport of powerlifting, he convinced me it was something even I could do. Phil took into consideration my non-athletic history and started me on a program that was easy to follow and yet challenged me to progress and set personal records. Two months after my training began I competed in my first powerlifting meet. Because Phil is an easygoing kind of guy, training with him was always fun. He believed in me when I didn't and by doing so encouraged me to continue to set personal records I never thought was possible."
- Kim Paradiso, Power and Olympic lifter
"When I first met Phil Stevens I was in a bad place mentally and physically after my divorce. I was looking for something to change in my life. Then I started training with Phil. The change in both my attitude and physical appearance happened with a lot of hard work and dedication on both our parts. That is one thing that has always amazed me about training with Phil, he cared about my success every bit as much as I did. He stayed by my side and challenged me to lift more and work harder. He gave me confidence that I didn't even know I had. Phil's vibrant personality and his ability to motivate me to change my life is what has led to my success as the athlete I am today. Furthermore, he has kept me laughing through my journey. I am a better person today because of him."
- Gretchen Hall, Highland games athlete
"I was a weightlifter when I met Phil about two years ago. With his expert guidance and coaching I became a powerlifting athlete setting several state, national and world records. In Oct. 2010 Phil coached me to the world title and four world records at young spry age of 71."
