Meet the Team Behind the Scenes

Shane McMullen

Prevea Health & Wellness Coach

Shane has been working in the fitness/health care field now for 10 plus years and really enjoys working with others by being able to bring the best in those he works with. His philosophy is to allow each person he works with to set their own goals and then, he works with them to help achieve and maintain those goals. By allowing the individuals to identify the goals that are meaningful to them, it allows for sustained success and internal motivation can come much easier when the goals have a personal side to them. When you allow someone to find their “why” you are able to accomplish goals you may not have felt were always possible. 

Outside of work Shane enjoys spending time with my family which includes his wife, three kids (soon to be four) and two dogs. They like spending time outside playing sports, going for bike rides, playing fetch with the dogs and running races. Shane likes to get involved with his kids youth sports and volunteering for their school throughout the year. Some hobbies of Shane’s include playing basketball, working out and doing the occasional 5k, 10k or half marathon when he really wants to be dedicated to running.
