“My personal experience with Gallagher performance has been nothing less than exceptional. I’ve made tremendous strides as an athlete, strides that I never knew I could reach. Sean and Ryan have helped me become stronger, faster, and most importantly to me, healthier than I’ve ever been. This has been my first full football season that I have remained injury free and it has been a result of the intense training of not only working on my strengths but also turning my weaknesses into strengths as well. I’m also stronger and faster than I have ever been before. I would not be where I am at today without the experience I’ve had with Ryan and Sean and I am very grateful for all they have done for me.”

“Gallagher Performance is for lack of better words awesome. They got me the staggering results I wanted. On top of getting me amazing results, they educated me through the process, and truly helped me understand what they were doing. But the most important thing is the Gallagher’s care about everyone of their clients, and will do anything to help them.”

“During my time training with Gallagher Performance, I have acquired many things that I did not have before. Through the careful eyes of Ryan and Sean, and their vast knowledge of athletic training and nutritional guidance, I have gained approximately 30 pounds of muscle in the five months I have trained with them. This has allowed me to become a much more dynamic basketball player. It has allowed me to play with a more physical style and to play with more confidence. The environment we train in is relaxed enough that I can enjoy each session, but serious enough that I can see tremendous results. If you are a serious athlete and looking for training that can take you to the next level, I strongly recommend Gallagher Performance”
– Matt Fisch, Franklin Regional HS Basketball
“My experience at Gallagher Performance has added so much to my performance on the field on so many levels. First, the preseason workouts, muscle building and strength gained, and the massage therapy and the combination of that with my diet and exercise was outstanding. It gave me a schedule, a plan and a goal and reaching it little by little was very rewarding. The professionalism of Ryan and Sean made me feel so confident about their abilities to help me accomplish what I set out to do. The massage therapy following Friday night games were so important to me. I couldn’t wait to get there on Monday night to work out all the areas of tightness. They added to my performance, protected me from injury, helped me to stay on track with diet and weight goals and combined with the therapeutic effects, the outcome was excellent.”

“June 2013 when I started work with Gallagher Performance I weighed 160lbs. After five months of working with Ryan and Sean, I gained 30 lbs. of muscle and have significantly increased my bench press and squat max. As a result of my time at Gallagher Performance I have greatly improved as a football player, I have more strength, speed and have significantly improved my jumping ability. Working with Sean and Ryan has been extremely helpful. They really care about me and want the best for me. I would strongly recommend Gallagher Performance to others as I believe they are great trainers and I really enjoy working with them.”
– Todd Summers, TE
“When I came to Gallagher Performance my running technique was poor and my max numbers were relatively low (Squat 330) (Bench 260). Within three months I had skyrocketed to a 420 Pound squat and was benching 300 pounds. I also knocked 2 tenths off of my 25 yard dash time. As I got close to my season, Sean tweaked my program to be more sport specific and based on explosive movements. Overall I feel more confident against my peers on the field and accomplished this by training in a great, friendly environment.”

“I have been to several chiropractors in the area and after being treated by Sean Gallagher I will never consider going anywhere else! I grew up playing sports, and have always considered working out a big part of my life. At Gallagher Performance they go above and beyond just chiropractic and training. They are experts at how the body works. They have a passion for what they specialize in, and you will learn your full potential and see maximum results! I used to only see a chiropractor when I had an injury, but now I go on a routine basis because I have noticed a total difference in my body. I have seen first hand how Sean and Ryan have changed peoples’ lives for the better. Don’t take my word for it, come and experience Gallagher Performance for yourself! You will be blown away with how you look and feel after just a short period of time!”
– Ashley B.
“The programming in season was designed to stay close to the gains I had made and still have energy to train for rugby, while utilizing different rep schemes and lifts to avoid undue muscle soreness. I was provided with a lot of information on nutrition, sleep, and mobility. Along with regular adjustments and soft-tissue treatment, I had a great season and felt better than I did while playing football in college.”

So I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Ryan for his stupendous knowledge on everything it takes to be a healthy and fit individual. He takes the time to explain what you need to focus on and why.. he encourages interactive/interpersonal communication, and perfects the art of teaching. With passion, genuine care, and a great personality- I will definitely advise that everyone goes to him for Personal Training. Although I only had 4 sessions with him, he taught me very essential work out/nutrition methods. It’s good people like Ryan who keep the world spinning into a happy, healthier lifestyle.
– Kessi Osborne
“Absolutely the best! Sean was so knowledgeable and explained everything to me as we went through the process of finding the problem & solution to my shoulder pain. He even helped me with other trouble areas that I was unaware of at the time. You can tell he does it to “help” his patients/clients and isn’t one of those who just wants to do it for the money. I’d recommend everyone to GP! Thanks again Sean!”

“My experience with Gallagher performance has been awesome. The personalized workout plan has been one that makes me enjoy going to the gym. I never feel like I’m getting worn out or doing the same thing over and over again. It challenges me everyday and has made me stronger than I ever have been. If you want results and a healthier lifestyle, trust Gallagher performance”
– Hanna Wagner
“If you are looking for a local, quality chiropractor…your search is over.”
“These guys are the best in the area! Sean got my bench respectable again by working his “wizardry” on my shoulders. My legs take a beating as a goaltender, but Ryan and his massage skills got my legs feeling great and functional again. Don’t hesitate to go to these guys!”

“I first started working with Sean, at Gallagher Performance, due to an injury to my back/SI Joint in 2014. The injury occurred December of 2013 and I went through almost a year of physical therapy and other doctor appointments before coming to Sean to fix the problem. Sean realized what the problem was and started giving me a combination of chiropractic adjustments and specific exercises to strengthen the area and eliminate the problem.
Over the time when I was injured, I was unable to do anything overly physical. The worst thing that can ever happen to a former athlete is to realize that they can no longer be athletic. I needed to do something more, so I came back to Sean immediately and had him write me up a plan and provide one on one guidance to help me achieve my fitness goals. Sean prescribed a rigorous training program that challenged me day in and day out. I noticed results very quickly and within 12 weeks, I felt better than I had felt in the past 10 years!
I am still going strong with Sean’s plans and I look forward to seeing what the future brings using the PROVEN Gallagher Performance methods. Sean single handedly took me from a stale couch potato and he has given me back my manhood! Thanks to Sean I feel like an athlete again. I would recommend Gallagher Performance to ANYBODY looking to get in better shape! They are the best around, hands down!”
“My experience at Gallagher Performance has had a major impact on my life, both physically and mentally. My goal when I decided to join Gallagher Performance was to add muscle as well as add speed. Within months of hard training, the results were outstanding. Sean and Ryan have taken away any doubts of ever being able to compete at the next level. Seeing where I was physically and seeing where I am now, joining Gallagher Performance was the best decision I could have made
to better myself as an athlete. The knowledge they have for training and your body is exceptional. I cannot thank Sean and Ryan enough for everything they have done for me!”

“One day I had enough and set my goal: to get as strong as I possibly can. I heard about GP’s training approach, so I went to talk to them to see what they had to offer. If you have read as much as I have on fitness blogs and articles, it is easy to separate those who know what they are talking about from those who don’t. After talking with them and even seeing their own performance in the gym, I knew that GP was absolutely the place to turn to.
For the reader who wants to know the results I gained in 2 cycles (24 weeks):
Deadlift – went from 425 to 530
Push Press – went from 165 to 270
Front squat – went from 175 to 350 (and yes I sat on my heels)
I did this at 235 pounds with 13% body fat (+ 2% for user error). I also made these gains after 5 years of my own piss-poor programming, i.e. HIIT, which left me with nothing more than diagnosed adrenal fatigue. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, Google “adrenal fatigue” and read how hard it is to make gains in the gym or even operate on a functional level throughout the day. For those readers who have been searching for great programming but don’t know where to turn, here you go.
Throughout my cycles I could email them at any time with questions, concerns, or feedback. My workouts were changed based on how my performance was in the gym the week prior. I was excited to go to the gym to see how much I could lift that day. The new programming translated into better focus at school too. My gains were nothing like they had been before and I absolutely recommend GP’s programming to everyone.”
“I chose GP because I saw improvement in my teammates that go to GP and I wanted to better myself and see those same results.”

When I first contacted Sean about setting up a meeting, he responded within the hour and was more than happy to set up a meeting with me. On my first appointment, I instantly felt like he was as interested in helping me, as I was interested in bettering my body. He explained everything to me clearly and genuinely wanted to help me understand everything that was going on. After just one appointment, I noticed improvements in my posture and I wasn’t the only one. Several times friends of mine mentioned that I was carrying myself differently. This was just one week after my first appointment with Sean. After one month I noticed drastic changes in my body. My hips were looser which had a trickle down effect. Pain in my feet, lower back, back shoulder, neck and knees had subsided greatly and improved with time due to the exercises Sean had given me. On my second and third visits, we went over proper form in basic exercises, primarily squats and deadlifts. I had never been taught proper form on these exercises by a professional, and it made all the difference. Sean helped me to understand how the body moves most efficiently in these exercises, and also how these proper forms feel.
I went to Sean to improve my posture, flexibility and strength. After each one of my appointments, I left with a greater understanding of these three aspects, and the tools to unlock them. I’ve had biweekly appointments with physical therapists for up to 6 weeks for a hamstring injury. In my experience, they did not have the same desire to help their patients that I experienced at Gallagher Performance. The results from these therapists was nowhere near those I have seen with Sean. He has the unique quality of caring about his patients and wanting to help them. I wish every therapist performed on the same level that he does. It was nothing but an absolute pleasure to work with him. I would recommend Sean Gallagher to anyone who has questions about furthering their fitness levels, and wants to better understand their body.

If you’re looking for sports performance training don’t bother looking anywhere else. My experience at Gallagher Performance has been nothing less than awesome. I was never excited to go to the gym before, however working with GP changed that. I would be excited to go and put in work, while seeing my strength levels increase dramatically. I’ve made tremendous strides since I first started and my body feels stronger and healthier than ever. Ryan and Sean are very personable and are great to work with. I look forward to training with them next summer and for many summers to come.

I would recommend seeing Dr. Sean, first, because even after just a couple of days with working with Sean I felt a very noticeable change in pain I experienced in my groin. Also, he gave me exercises that I can continue to use to strengthen the area around so as to not re-injure the muscle as I return to play. Finally, Dr. Sean was great to work with because he understands my desire to get back on the field but also takes the proper steps to get me to that point.

Sean and Ryan are the absolute best. Several years ago, I started having issues with my knees. It started with an uncomfortable pain when running, and like most people I ignored the pain until I could no longer run, train legs during workouts, play recreational hockey, and even worse it started to affect me during work. I consulted Sean and Ryan of Gallagher Performance about the issues I was having after seeing an article outside of their office about supposed “Runners Knees”. I was completely blown away. They quickly assessed the problem, and associated the pain and discomfort with the cause, which stemmed down from a muscle balance issue of my hips.
My case was severe, and I thought that I would just have to deal with the pain forever. I was wrong, I put my trust into the treatments, and therapy that Ryan provided. I was never pushed to come in on a strict schedule, and the only character they displayed was actual concern and care to get me back on my feet and doing the things that I enjoy. As I said, my case was SEVERE, and the therapy sessions weren’t exactly a breeze, but after a couple sessions I could feel a positive impact. After a couple months, I felt better that I had 10 years ago. Gallagher Performance gave me a quality of life back that I didn’t believe was possible……..”If you’re interested in using Gallagher Performance, Do It, and don’t even hesitate……”. It was one of the best investments I’ve ever made, I can’t put into words the quality of life I gained back, and I will continue to consult with the Gallagher’s for any issues, big or small, training or injury, it doesn’t matter, they have your back!

I would recommend them to anyone, they helped me with a six month injury that multiple others could not fix. Feeling the best I have in a long time and also feel more knowledgeable about what I need to do to keep my body healthy. Thanks guys.

I started to see Dr. Sean less than a year ago for my hip and lower back. At that time I was unable to do any weight training because of my back and my own chiropractor was having little success with treatment.I decided to seek out Gallagher Performance because I know their reputation and from their work with others that they aren’t there to just adjust you and send you on your way. Dr. Sean took time and through various exercises and movements was able to determine that I had poor core strength, very limited flexibility and hip imbalances.Through his treatment of giving me day to day exercises for flexibility and strengthening my core and therapy and adjustments to my hip I have been able to do my weight training with almost no limitations.Also when I first came to see him I started twice a week and now I am down to once a month. My hip is maintaining without falling back into my old patterns of imbalances. I am very happy with the progress that has been made in that time.– Shawn Titus
“My arrival to Gallagher Performance was not necessarily glamorous. I was in the best shape of my life physically but could not understand why I continued to battle a reoccurring bicep tendonitis which inhibited me from performing at my best on the mound. I had tried resting along with physical therapy which left me with success only temporarily. I viewed Gallagher Performance as a different approach that ‘couldn’t hurt, might help.’ This outlook stemmed from an overall lack of experience with and even doubt towards chiropractic medicine. My experience with Sean, a chiropractor, was nothing like I had expected. I came seeking a full arm massage but left with knowledge regarding my anatomy and mechanics which has allowed me to return to my own peak performance. They looked far beyond my bicep for answers. They made me think; I returned the favor. Every time I walked in there, I was learning about myself and my injury and would like to think they learned from me as well. I had never experienced an environment like that to this point: a collaborative medical environment. I would recommend these guys to anyone. Besides the fact that they are clearly very knowledgeable and well versed in the anatomy of the human body, rehabilitative work, and physical training, they are also all-around good guys. It was a true pleasure working with them and I plan on coming back and working with them some more if they’ll have me!”

When I first visited Gallagher Performance 6 months ago, I went for a nagging discomfort around my shoulder on the right side of my back that had stuck with me for the past 7 years. Not only was this uncomfortable, but it was also a major limiting factor in my physical performance. For years on my own, I tried various types of stretches, mobility exercises, and strengthening exercises, all to no avail. Due to its chronic nature, I continued to research the potential issue, and was convinced it was fascial adhesions in that area causing the discomfort and limited mobility. From there, I went to a number of deep tissue massages from various professionals, but those only resulted in short-term relief, not the long-term fix I was looking for. I continued my journey by going to various physical therapists in the area. I would tell them I thought facial adhesions were causing this issue. They would listen, target that area with facial release methods, give me various stretches and mobility exercises, but still no results.
Finally, I found Gallagher Performance one day as I searched for a fix for my shoulder and decided to give them a shot. Since I was still convinced that fascial adhesions were my issue, I went for a deep tissue massage for my first session with Ryan. Ryan listened attentively as I told him about my symptoms and the fascial adhesions that I believed were causing my discomfort and limited mobility in that area. Once the session started, he went to work on those fascial adhesions that I so strongly believed were the culprit. But this is where Gallagher Performance separated themselves from all of the other practitioners that I visited. Even though Ryan started on the facial adhesions, through his extensive knowledge and expertise, he quickly identified that fascial adhesions were not the issue. In fact, I unknowingly had issues in other areas in my body that were the root causes of my discomfort in that area. From there, through Ryan’s genuine desire to help his clients, he introduced me to Sean in order to work through the multitude of issues that caused this chronic discomfort and limited mobility for the past 7 years. Since that first visit, I’ve continuously worked with Sean and have practically eliminated the issue that had limited me for so many years.
Ryan and Sean were the first professionals to take an honest and objective approach to my issue. Instead of allowing my unprofessional diagnosis of my issue dictate their actions and approach, they independently applied their experience and knowledge to diagnose my issue and set me on the correct path for a long-term fix. Sean’s expertise in his field, specifically his knowledge of DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization), gave me the tools I needed to fix the root causes of my issue. His unique knowledge of DNS was imperative to my early success, but as we continued to work together on my path to maximizing functionality and physical performance, his experience and expertise in every area physical therapy allowed him to effectively diagnosis and treat any issue that would arise. Even though my discomfort has subsided greatly, I continue to work with Sean on correcting other problem areas that are limiting the full functionality of my body that I require to perform at a high level as an ice hockey goaltender. Only when I began my work with Sean was I not only able correct a lingering issue, but was also able to (and continue to) maximize my physical performance and functionality in ways I’ve never experienced before.
In addition to my periodic visits with Sean, I have been working with Ryan on the nutrition and training side for three months now, and as with my work with Sean, experiencing results that I have never experienced in those areas. For years, I have tried various exercise and nutrition programs, but the results that I experienced (if any) were short-term. I was never able to stick to a nutrition plan for very long or have a training program that was designed specifically to my needs. Ryan met those needs by developing a nutrition and training program built on a very simple yet powerful concept – sustainability. No longer was I burning out of my nutrition program because it was to strict and unsustainable, nor was I giving up on my training program because I wasn’t seeing any progress. Through the scope of sustainability, Ryan develops programs that not only brings incredible results, but also have the ability to be adhered to for the long-term. In addition, since Ryan and Sean work closely together, Ryan is able to take the feedback from my work with Sean and adjust my nutrition and training plans accordingly. I never had success in the past using various cookie-cutter nutrition and training programs. But once I started working with Ryan, I began to see great results on a consistent basic through the plans that he developed specifically for me.
My experience with Ryan and Sean has been, and continues to be, exceptional. Not only is their knowledge and expertise high-level, but they are truly tremendous people. They genuinely want their clients to succeed and will do whatever it takes to make that happen. The level of support and professional expertise that I have received from both Sean and Ryan is unparalleled, and I can’t thank them enough for success they helped bring into my life.
I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to see Sean and Ryan. Whether you are an athlete or non-athlete, young or old, I have no doubt in my mind that Ryan and Sean will be able to provide the level of support you are looking for. Gallagher Performance is much more than just a chiropractor, a personal trainer, or a massage therapist – they offer a multitude of services that restore health, functionality, and maximize physical performance. If you are looking for a high level of expertise and support in any of these areas, I urge you to give Gallagher Performance a try. They are hand-down some of the best in the business.

“Gallagher Performance has chiropractic care, massage therapy, and training all in one building. The Gallagher’s are extremely knowledgeable, professional and above all they get results.
I visited most recently with a neck injury. Sean worked with me from start to finish to help relieve tension and pain and to improve my range of motion. He worked on my alignment and gave me exercises to strengthen my muscles. I could see results with each visit.
The passion they have for their client’s well being is evident from the first encounter. It’s reassuring to know that the people working with you truly care. I would recommend them to anyone!”
“Gallagher Performance has helped me tremendously by enhancing my athletic ability both on and off the ice. I am much stronger, faster, and have better endurance since I started working with them. Even when I was injured, I was able to get back to the ice in no time with the chiropractic help. I highly recommend Gallagher Performance for both physical training and chiropractic needs.”
“Each year I have come to Gallagher Performance with a new goal, and each year they have helped me achieve that goal. From helping me gain muscle mass, to helping me shave time off my 60-yard dash, GP has been there every step of the way. The Gallagher brothers are very knowledgeable in their fields and care about safety first. I would recommend Gallagher Performance to anyone that wants to see results.”
“I’ve been training with Gallagher Performance for the past couple of years, and not only have I achieved my goals, but I have exceeded them. On top of that, they truly make your experience with them a fun time. If you’re looking for the best place to train and achieve your fitness goals, Gallagher Performance is the place for you.”
“Gallagher Performance is hands down the best team in Pittsburgh. Growing up as a hockey player, I have had many injuries which which required treatment from chiropractors, physical therapists, and orthopedists. It wasn’t until my first appointment with Dr. Gallagher that I I realized what I was missing out on. His knowledge and passion for helping others was so evident during both the exam and treatment. I send all of my family to GP. A few years ago, Ryan’s weightlifting and nutrition plans helped my girlfriend win her figure competition and this past year he guided my mother toward her weight loss and fitness goals. I could go on and on about these two! If your looking for your best options in regards to physical fitness or injury rehabilitation, you’ve found it. Call now!”
-Dr. Chad White, DC
“I have been working with Gallagher Performance for about 2 years. They have helped me tremendously with weight loss, strength training, and chiropractic care. I have lost over 50 lbs and even competed in my first powerlifting meet because of Ryan’s focus and encouragement to do things I never thought I could do. Sean has helped me with all sorts of pain, mostly knee and back, and I have never felt better physically. GP is so versatile in what they can do, so if you need help, these are your guys!”
“Hands down the best training in the Pittsburgh. They build you from the ground up on fundamentals and form to make you the best you can be. They have outstanding chiropractic care that has helped me to recover from injuries in a third of the time it should’ve taken. They have meal plans to help you reach whatever goal you would like to reach as well. You can just look at them and tell that they know what they’re doing!!! Not only are they top notch at training but they’re very easy to work with. Wether it’s going to be your first time in the gym or you’re looking to take your athletic performance to the next level, they’ll provide you with an arsenal of excercises and movements to help you get there. I love these guys and can’t say enough good things about them!!!”
“Gallagher Performance is an incredibly smart and effective training team that takes their athletes to the next level. Personally, I have received treatments from both Sean and Ryan, and I have left feeling even better. From chiropractic therapy, to speed conditioning, weight lifting and post-surgery shoulder rehab, they both knew so much information for each specialty and I couldn’t be more pleased with results! Highly Recommend Gallagher Performance!”
