Gearhead Sean and Gear

Sean in his natural environment, surrounded by mountains, covered with gear.

When Sean was a young boy, he had a paper route.  His first purchase from his paper route money? A Swiss Champ knife.  He was officially hooked on gear.  That was 25 years ago and the knife is still getting used!  After thousands of days in the field, testing gear in all kinds of climates, conditions and activities he is ready to help you get into the best gear for your adventures!

When not obsessing about gear, Sean is a certified personal trainer, sports nutritionist and bio-hacker and owner of Colorado Personal Fitness.  He loves training clients to get into shape to enjoy all outdoor activities and adventures and loves getting them into the right gear so they can make the most of the experiences!  If he’s not training his clients in the gym and in the mountains, Sean is consumed with research into the best gear technology and testing it on adventures – usually with Dave.  Sean is TRX-FORCE, NSCA-CPT, NPTI, NSNF, AIARE Level 2 and a certified gear enthusiast.
