I started working out with Mike back in April in preparation for the NYC Marathon this November, and I must say it has made all the difference in the world. We spent most of our workouts focusing on fast paced, high repetition exercises, with the goal of building lean muscle while improving my cardiovascular fitness. After only 5 months of training twice a week for a half hour each time, I am amazed at the difference it has made. He has certainly made me stronger and more fit. I would absolutely recommend Mike to anyone who is looking to improve their overall level of fitness. He talks a lot, and keeps you entertained while you work your butt off. Overall he is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and taught me more than I could have imagined. Now I’m going to crush this marathon!!
