Sean Pastuch is the founder and CEO of the company Active Life, the self-described bridge between healthcare and fitness. Sean conceived Active Life out of the need to innovate the current medical model by incorporating an emotional approach to pain management. He earned a degree in Chiropractic Care from Northeast College of Health Sciences and has worked for various fitness organizations, including CrossFit. Sean is also a coach educator to athletes and has extensive experience working in strength conditioning and physical rehabilitation.


Sean joins me today to describe why the fitness industry alienates those who aren’t at peak health despite claiming to be inclusive. He shares how Active Life helps those who feel bullied by the fitness industry and highlights the projects they will focus on in the coming months. He defines financial freedom and explains how fatherhood taught him about controlling emotions and much more. Sean also describes why saying “my team” isn’t as inclusive as it sounds.


“Everyone needs a different level and tone of communication; you have to ask the questions to get the answers. You can’t just make the assumptions.” – Sean Pastuch
