I can’t rave enough about Gary. I had never run more than three consecutive miles and decided to train for the NYC marathon in my husband’s memory. Gary not only trained me, his belief that I could and would accomplish my goal never wavered (my own resolve did). Gary is warm, caring and an elite runner who genuinely loves what he does…..I did all 26.2 miles and Gary was cheering as I crossed that finish line!

I approached Gary in June of 2012 with a single objective – to qualify for the 2014 Boston Marathon, a seemingly unachievable goal as it required knocking off 10 minutes from my personal best. After six months of dedicated training with Gary, not only did I qualify for Boston but did so with much time to spare. I couldn’t have done it without him.

Set a goal and Gary will get you there. He’s a professional who truly cares: affable and focused. He truly made a difference in my life.

I can’t thank Gary enough. He is a true professional. I will always appreciate the amount of time and care he devoted to my training for the 2014 NYC Marathon. It has been an extraordinary experience for me and he was right there with me every step of the way.
Marc S., New York, NY
As a former competitive athlete I was looking for a coach who could push me but make sure I had fun in the meanwhile. Gary was flexible and responsive, and I saw significant improvements not only in my time but in how I felt after a race. Having someone looking at my workout results made a big difference in my performance. I enjoyed working with Gary and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to improve their running technique while furthering their love for the sport.
