About Sean Hyson

Sean Hyson

I’m a fitness connoisseur.

As the Group Training Director for Muscle&Fitness and Men’s Fitness magazines, I cover workouts, diets, exercise trends, and the regimens of celebrities and athletes. I am the author of The Men’s Fitness Exercise Bible (aka 101 Best Workouts Of All Time), and the e-book The Truth About Strength Training. I’ve also been the fitness editor at Muscle & Fitness Hers and Sly magazine. I’ve appeared on fitness and nutrition segments for several television shows, including MTV Hits and Good Day New York.

I’m a huge fan of mixed martial arts (MMA), and lucky to say that I was the senior editor at UFC magazine. Additionally, I was a contributing editor on the book Fit To Fight, a guide to strength training for MMA, by Jason Ferruggia.

As a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S.), and nutrition fanatic, I know firsthand what it takes to get bigger, stronger, leaner, and healthier. I underwent a 12-week body transformation and lost 35 pounds while adding 50 pounds to my squat. I ate no bread or cheese, drank no alcohol, and was in bed every night by 10:30. And I loved (almost) every minute of it. I occasionally take a moment for myself in Brooklyn, NY.

This site is a long time in the making. After years of meeting fitness gurus and sifting through the enormous volume of training programs, diets, and supplements that have come across my desk—and being a guinea pig for more than a few of them—I’ve come to a few conclusions. I’m ready to share with you what’s worked for the greatest number of people most of the time, including myself. I’ll introduce you to the smartest experts in the field, and give honest reviews of their products. In my blog, I’ll discuss the controversial issues in fitness (and sometimes just have fun). I’ll get to the roots of what you really need to know to improve your body and your life.

It’s long been my job, but it’s always been my passion. This is fitness distilled.
