Entered the San Francisco Police Academy in February 1982 where I quickly learned the importance of health and fitness.

During my career as an officer I received 6 Medal of Valor’s. 2 Bronze Medals, 2 Silver Medals, 2 Gold Medals and over 50 commendations along with being awarded Officer of the Year.

Sean Ball

During my younger life I had a very fast metabolism and had a hard time putting on any size. It was so bad I wore long sleeve shirts to hide my skinny arms. My mother tried to get me involved in weight lifting and nutrition but always found excuses not to do it. She told me that the only person that can change my life and the way I look is myself but I had to put work and effort into it for it to happen. It wasn’t until I was around 24 years of age and wondering what I was going to do in life when I decided to take her advice. As I watched my mother compete in bodybuilding and achieve her goals in health and fitness it was then when I decided that I wanted to become a personal trainer and help others with their personal goals in health and fitness. I then started working out with my mother at World Gym and immediately started seeing results in my body. I then joined 24hrs Fitness and soon became employed by them. During my employment with 24hr Fitness I was able to get my Certification in Fitness and Nutrition. In 2008 I moved to Grove Oklahoma with my mother where we built G Sports and in doing so I've continued to be able to help others with their fitness needs and goals.
