Instructors

Square 1™ Developer

Shawn Sherman

Developer of theSQUARE 1 System™, Shawn Sherman earned his Exercise and Sport Science degree from Penn State University and operates a private practice in Western Springs, Illinois. Over the years, Shawn has held numerous industry certifications and therefore understands what and how the conventionalists think and believe. Over the past 25 years, his understanding of movement has evolved from that of an apprentice level to a level of mastery by continually seeking answers to his questions. Because he now intimately and thoroughly understands the most basic components of movement, he brings an unparalleled perspective to the table. Not only does he consistently deliver absolutely amazing results to his clients, he teaches his students to be able to do the same.

Corey Murtha

Corey Murtha graduated from Penn State University with degrees in Finance and Kinesiology. He is a licensed bodyworker, strength coach, and certified SQUARE 1 System pro. As an all-around movement and health enthusiast, Corey has studied and learned to understand and exploit the significance of the nervous system in relation to human movement. Corey has been helping instruct SQUARE 1 seminars for the past 3 years after becoming certified in 2016. His passion is to help educate other movement professionals in applying cutting edge neuro-based approaches to human movement.
