“Shawn is a coach who can change your life. The most important thing about Shawn is his deep understanding of human potential. If you are ready to find out what you're truly capable of, Shawn can guide you. Shawn showed me that I had strength and perseverance within me that I didn't even know existed. My experiences training with Shawn created a positive change within me that I have been able to sustain to this day as a result of his guidance. I experience greater clarity, self-confidence, and self-expression on a regular basis as a result of my training with Shawn. I highly recommend training with him.”

“I was impressed right from the initial interview with Shawn. Working with V.S.S. Coaching was such a fantastic experience for me. I learned so much about technique, and the human body, and what we are capable of. I experienced major improvements in all the pillars of my life (nutrition, sleep, stress, movement etc) ... not only did I learn form and technique, but invaluable life lessons. Shawn really took the time and effort to help me improve my wellbeing as a whole.”
- Nicole ( Montana, USA)
“ The entire experience with V.S.S. has been so GREAT! Easy and practical. VSS has helped overcome many obstacles in the past nine months, and has helped to change my perspectives regarding fitness and military preparedness (mental and physiological). I sought Shawn out because he seems to be the best around. Holistic approach, individual assessments and catering to specific needs.”

I have been working with Shawn for about two years and feel better than when I was in my early 20's! I had a minor back surgery in 2012 for an injury received with in the Army in an Airborne unit. Until I met and worked with Shawn, my mobility was limited and I had constant back pain. I tried Crossfit, my own workouts, and workouts too many to count, with no success and continued back pain. After meeting with Shawn and experiencing the care and time he puts into clients, I have seen results. I can do anything these days and tryouts for a multitude of different positions within the EMS service I work for are a breeze. I am running faster (while having to run less) and perform a multitude of tasks with no preparation due to the AMAZING programs Shawn develops. One of the greatest things I have received from Shawn though is a good friend who holds me accountable while improving my life. I cannot imagine working with another trainer and know without a doubt, Shawn is one of the premier civilian and military trainers out there.

“My goal was to be prepared for Coast Guard basic training and lose the weight I needed to in order to enlist. I was very impressed with Shawn's professionalism and his knowledge about exercise and lifestyle. He pushed me to do my best and took a very balanced approach by helping me improve my diet, sleep, and exercise. By enlistment time I had lost 20 lbs and was in the best shape I had ever been in. I finished basic training a couple months later and was very satisfied with how I did physically. Shawn's a great guy and I would highly recommend him to any of my friends or family.
- Josh (Utah, USA)
Shawn Visintin was amazing from the beginning. He did my first assessment and with just a little history and a mild workout, I was pain free and decided to sign up for training with him. Over the course of our history together, he showed a high level of expertise and dedication to his profession. He was cautious with my training as I have many small issues (I am 65). I thought it was amazing that he was able to accurately assess my BMI, by visualizing me. The other methods that were prescribed to assess body fat composition were much less accurate than Shawn’s visual assessment. I had major weakness of my core and since training with him, my waist has gotten smaller and tighter. Overall my core strength has tripled from what it was before. I also have some postural issues and he assessed this as well and designed an exercise and stretching routine that helped address my postural issues. In the future I would consider training with him again.

I began this journey with Shawn Visitin about two years ago. Hearing the information and knowledge presented by him was unlike anything I had heard before. It was at this moment that I decided this was what I needed to attain my goals. Shawn was the first coach to address my core issues both physically and mentally. He helped correct a nagging back injury that I had been dealing with for over three years (I fractured my L5 and had a bulging disc 5 years before). The physical therapists I had been going to did not correct my issues as holistically as Shawn did in my first few months of working with him. I continue to work and grow as an individual through Shawn's direction. His holistic approach to my readiness is key to my future success. I work two part time jobs and go to school full time, yet I still find time to train. This is my proof that I believe in what Shawn is doing for me.

“My experience with Shawn Visintin was great! He is the best trainer and coach I have ever worked with. He is very knowledgeable, professional and very hands on in helping me reach goals. I would rate him 10 out of 10!”
- Michael. (Florida, USA)
"Working with Shawn has been life changing for me. It has taken me months to begin to understand what he is teaching. His work is not only about getting me in peak condition, but also very much about what he calls "Mental Toughness". Working with him has been an invaluable journey into what I'm really made of, and to become more than I thought I could ever become."

"I have enjoyed an amazing transformation with V.S.S. Coaching and their Master Trainer Shawn Visintin. Holistic, (Mind, Body, Spirit) Sustainable (long term), Vitality (look, feel, function) is their coaching emphasis. Shawn is an amazing personal trainer and lifestyle coach with a knack for creating a successful approach to a healthy and holistically vital life for myself and my family. I am 58 yet I feel half my age and am continuously outperforming my peers and my teenage son! I am down from 39% body fat to 15% body fat. My resting heart rate has decreased from 78bpm to 56bpm. My mind and body are more vital than they have been in three decades. Words cannot express all of my gratitude, but thank you so very much Shawn!”
- Bernard. (Europe)
“I rate my experience with V.S.S. Coaching 10 out of 10! In the time I worked with Shawn I lost 40lbs with 90% of it pure body fat! I have managed to keep it off as well with the sustainable tips Shawn has given me! This process has helped me physically, mentally, and spiritually. I have learned many things about my body and mind and it was sure a pleasure to work with Shawn. I am very happy and satisfied with the results.”
- Robbin. (China)
“Shawn is an awesome trainer who takes each client to heart, listens, comes up with a plan, that is all but impossible if you're willing to commit to it and give it your all! I have lost over 80lbs in the 3 years I have been working with Shawn and that is just one of the many accomplishments! Please hear my words now, if you are serious about a SUCCESSFUL approach to holistic health and well-being, look no further than Shawn Visintin. His people skills and knowledge of human behavior is a refreshing attribute in today’s world. It’s truly inspiring to work with him. Thanks for everything!
- Annie. (Europe)
“I have worked with over a dozen “top” trainers from all over the world, in my personal and professional career, so when I say Shawn is one of the best I have seen, you may get a glimpse into how special the opportunity is to have him as your trainer. When I first met Shawn I was depressed, overweight, sick, and angry. We spent the first 6 months together not even focusing on “exercise” specifically, but first and foremost making me healthy and happy from the INSIDE out. In 18 months, I am now the happiest I have ever been, the most in shape I have ever been, and by far the most positive and energetic I have ever been in my life! Shawn’s role in my transformation has been the foundational key, and we remain in close contact to this day. You were the blessing I prayed for Shawn. Thank you.”

"Shawn Visintin of V.S.S. Coaching Training changed my life forever! When I started, I was at my lowest physical point of my life, and mentally, I didn’t have the motivation or stamina to think that I could change the direction my life had taken. During our first visit, Shawn expertly and professionally evaluated my current physical status through a vast array of exercises. We talked a lot about what my goals for the program and just barely skimmed the surface of the available approaches and benefits that would be resultant from pursuing this course. We met 3 times a week from October2013 through until the spring of 2014, when I started traveling extensively. We worked on stretching, balance, range of motion, strength, diet, mental toughness, and sleep patterns. I was intermittently sore, but NEVER in pain, and have never received an injury while working out with Shawn. My strength and stamina, especially for a 60 year-old, previously broken woman, is amazing. My balance has improved immensely. My posture is improved greatly. I went from not being able to carry my 30-35 pound sacks of dog food to lifting TWO 50-pound kettle bells, and doing 50 pound kettle bell swings. My back, which hurt pretty much chronically, doesn’t even offer twinges of pain any more. But best of all, my positive health has given me a great mental outlook on life and a current level of contentment, and hope for the future. Even the pain and range of motion from my 33 year old shoulder break was improved. I went skydiving. I went parasailing. I started frequently riding horses again, my favorite pass-time, which I hadn’t done in years. I started dance lessons, after never dancing a step in my life. I don’t ever turn down an opportunity to be active, and know I can keep up with pretty much anyone on a recreational level. Even though I am travelling extensively with my work, Shawn is diligent in checking in with me and encouraging me. The tools he has given me, the revised thought process to “just do one more good thing” every day is constantly with me. I make an effort to be active every day. I drink lots of water. I get the proper amount of sleep. I take supplements where needed. I make good choices with my diet – when to eat and what to eat. I have a very high energy level, without naps and caffeine. I know without Shawn’s interaction in my journey, I wouldn’t be to the level I am, either physically or mentally. His assistance and care and concern and professionalism have made such a difference on my physical condition, and more importantly, my outlook on life, and the added value to living with optimism. I recommend that if you have ANY physical issues and want to live a more productive life, you try working with Shawn, just for one appointment. I’m certain you’ll see the value of continuing that relationship…"
