I’m very sad today to have found out that Sean O’Malley, 40, of Boynton Beach, who earned three letters while playing in the defensive line for the Ole Miss Rebel, better known as the Cardio Coach has passed away.
While doing some routine tasks this morning, I was alerted to this via a friend and I just sat there in shock. Was this some kind of sick joke? I quickly scanned Google and found nothing. Then I did a search on Facebook and found this on his Cardio Coach page.
From this posting on, it was filled with “We’ll miss you Sean!” As of this post, I have no idea what took him but I know that I’m deeply saddened by this news. I am sure if you were a Cardio Coach fan, this will come as a shock.
I remember when Volume 1 and 2 first came out. I had just started learning more about the benefits of cardiovascular training and HIIT. Like most people, I grew bored of listening to music or doing some 1 minute on, 1 minute off routine all by myself.
Then I found Cardio Coach and heard Sean O’Malley’s voice literally coaching me thru each warm up, steady state and challenges. At this point, I feel I’ve lost a friend. We spoke a few times on the phone early on and somewhere in Volume 2, he even took the time to thank me.
Truthfully, there’s really no other cardio I do. At times, I’ll do low intensity steady state while watching TV but every single other time, I’m listening to Volume 1-3 of Cardio Coach.
I will miss you Sean. You were there for me in hundreds of workouts pushing me to the next level. You truly cared and gave of yourself. You touched thousands of people and made lives better. Rest in peace friend. I thank you for all you do. It’s going to be a bit sad listening to volumes here on out but trust me, I will be listening.
I still need my coach.
