I have a passion for the sweet science.. I am very good at turning a novice to a prospect. With a 1 on 1 session, it's easier to understand the mental aspect of the sport.. (Hit and not get hit) for those who Want to learn self defense or compete. Or for those who want to get in shape.. Everyone Has their reason for wanting to learn the sweet science. I have been teaching for 10 years. Including my own kids. Kids of close friends and friends. I am a licensed boxing coach through boxing metro. I train out of my own basement... but I can also travel... The lessons will be one on one so you get my undivided attention.. I also have a heavy bag,speed bag, double end bag, ab coaster. And plenty of workout equipment. I also have Hykso. A punch tracker that tracks the type of punch you throw, Average speed of your punch, how many punches you throw pre round and your intensity..
I enjoy giving a person the ability to defend themselves and the confidence that comes with the ability to box..watching a person progress as the weeks go by brings me joy.. I teach so I can give anyone the ability to protect themselves from harm and others who can't defend themselves.. It is proven that knowing you have that ability makes it easier to walk away from a confrontation as Oppose to engaging it..
As a mom of a beautiful young lady my daughter was going into high school and I wanted to make sure my baby girl knew how to defend herself from any situation that occurs. Mike trained my daughter in learning how to defend herself, and in the beginning she was very shy and timid, but Mike gave her confidence and showed her that she can indeed get the task at hand done if you put your mind to it. Mike has also helped and is continuing to help me get to a goal I want for myself. I have came a long way from not knowing how to do something simple as breathing the right way through an exercise and the correct way to do a squat. With Mike I have learned to push hard, to know my limits and to never give up in accomplishing the goal I set for myself. If you are looking for someone that gives 100% all of the time then look no further, Mike has the passion to push to to your limits and to help you get the job done with side by side instruction.
I have worked with a number of personal trainers in NY and none have proved more effective or knowledgeable than Mike. Since meeting Mike it’s the first time I’ve ever enjoyed training in a gym. Time passes quickly and the sessions are varied. He also provides a rounded service, focusing on nutrition as well as exercise so that I achieve my goals quicker. I’m definitely seeing a difference and getting more toned which is exactly what I wanted. Whether it was by helping me lose weight or providing me with the fundamentals of boxing, He has turned my initial like for boxing into a downright passion. I find myself not only pushing harder with every single passing training session but also constantly looking forward to the next. In sum, he’s more than just a boxing trainer; he’s a coach. If you are looking for a real boxing coach to teach you real boxing then Mike is the guy to go too. Whether you want to learn the fundamentals of boxing or are ready to compete he will help you achieve your goals. Mike’s training prepares me both mentally and physically. He is precise, knowledgeable, motivating, enthusiastic, and just an excellent coach/person. The training sessions are perfect because Mike gives excellent instructions and guides you every step towards the goal. The work outs are intense but at the same time they are fulfilling. I now see Mike not only as my coach but as a very good friend of mine. I will definitely recommend Mike to anyone who is interested in Boxing , Self-defense & Nutrition. Bottom line is my confidence has sky rocketed!!! Thank you Mike.
