My name is Sean Smith and I set up MY Fitness and Martial Arts to provide a high level service to athletes and enthusiasts a like.
After spending 10 years working in the leisure industry as a Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer and Club Manager I retrained as a Secondary PE Teacher.
As a Specialist Coach with the Youth Strength and Conditioning Association and holding a BSc in Sports Science, Level 4 qualification as a Strength and Conditioning Coach and currently the rank of 2nd Dan with the EKF, sport and in particular sports performance are a huge passion for.
After leaving full time teaching in December 2019 and with the pandemic in full flow I made the difficult decision to fulfil my dream of opening a CrossFIT Affiliate.
I began to take a strong interest in Youth Strength & Conditioning through my Karate teaching and realised that there is an increasing need for training outside of the sport in order to reduce the risk of injury and improve performance.
As a teacher I regularly see students doing a significant amount of extra curricular sport but with out the supplementary training to support it.
We offer a service that is second to no other in the area. Whether that is S&C or Karate instruction. We have the passion, experience, qualifications and now the facility to back up our aim which is to help people achieve all the can be!
I completed my degree at Leeds Carnegie in 2006 gaining a 2:1. The focus of my final study was the influence of leg strength on sprint speed in amateur footballers.
I have gained a number of qualifications in Strength and Conditioning including Youth S&C Specialist as well as CrossFit Level 2 and Kids.
Before becoming a Teacher I had already gained significant experience coaching young people and adults. Karate, rugby and basketball being particular areas of knowledge and expertise.
I qualified as a Secondary PE Teacher in 2008 and have worked at a number of schools across Yorkshire since then.
With over 10 years experience in the leisure industry I gained a number of qualifications in basic and advanced training techniques, nutrition and first aid. Not to mention a vast amount of experience helping people achieve their goals.
