10/10 Terrific Training Experience
By Matthew Garvey / Boston, US

I have been training with Marc for 2 years now and have seen dramatic improvements in all facets of my workouts and body transformation. At first I was skeptical about even using a trainer, however, I can't see continuing to go to the gym without using Marc's services as a trainer. He has an incredible ability to digest what each of his trainees (beginner, intermediate or advanced) is looking to get out of their workouts and cater to them exactly what they need. For example, my goal was to gain strength while also improving my mobility and flexibility. He has been able to customize workouts for me to achieve both of those goals. I'm moving so much better throughout the day and have much less pain than ever before. One of Marc's greatest strengths is no matter the level you're at, he can push you beyond what you ever thought you were capable of - but not too far. This has not only helped my physically but mentally too. His knowledge of weight based workouts is remarkable and one I would put up against anyone else's. However, he is also incredibly astute to knowing how the body moves and how one can workout with no weights at all. This is terrific for me as our workouts are never stale, always challenging and most importantly fun! Lastly, I would be remiss not to mention his deep knowledge of nutrition - which has helped me tremendously. With his knowledge and influence on my diet, it's made my workouts better, more impactful and has helped me see the results I've been wanting. I would highly recommend training with matter what level or expertise you are. You see results while having a great time.

10/10 Amazing trainer, look no further!!!
By Margot DeMore / Boston, United States

Marc is a gifted trainer and an awesome human being. I've been fortunate to train with Marc since 2014, when I was out of shape, not feeling great about my body, and going through fertility treatments. 4+ years (and two more babies!!), at 42 yrs old, I am stronger and leaner than I've ever been in my life. I have a new found love and passion for picking heavy things up and putting them down ... in part because of Marc. Marc has taught me SO much about strength training, I am now excited to conquer the gym on my own, but also love, how our ongoing training helps me refine, learn and progress further! Marc's focus and attention on each individual client is what I find most remarkable. He is incredibly passionate about his craft and deeply attentive to everyone he works with. He is laser-focused during sessions, and then retrospective about how to help me progress. He is also continuously pushing himself too also progress, constantly pursuing new certifications, opportunities to learn and expand his mind. Training sessions are the bright spots in my week, I leave stronger and invigorated. Anyone who trains with Marc is lucky!

10/10 The Next Level
By Will H. / Boston, USA

It seems like Marc starts slow, probing the weaknesses of his client. But there is a well thought out plan of attack. Marc identifies the weakness, works the weakness, and turns the weakness into strength. Marc has changed the way I train. Weak points in my back shoulders, and neck are all transformed. Balance, posture, strength. Conceive, believe, achieve. Marc is an exceptional trainer.

10/10 Next Level
By Kevin DeVito / Boston, USA

Working with Marc over the past 6 months has been one of the best decisions I've made in my adult life. Before working with Marc, I figured I could get the results I wanted working out on my own by reading blogs and other fitness related online content and pulling from my experience as a college athlete. I was wrong. I've made more progress with Marc in the past 6 months than I had in the previous 4 years in terms of increasing strength, trimming down in certain areas, and bulking up in others. Regardless of your starting point, Marc knows how to get you to where you want to be. He tweaks the workouts every couple weeks to keep things interesting and continue to build on the progress you've made. He continually challenges me to push my limits of what I thought was possible. Overall, it has been a great experience working with Marc and I look forward to what the future holds.

10/10 Be a Lupple!
By Peter Dichiara / Boston, USA

What’s a lupple, you ask? That’s what you say when you mean to say Supple Leopard but you’re so tired after a work out you can’t speak. You’re laying on the floor and breathing out your ears Marc is very dedicated, true professional and a great listener My experience w him has been w body weight exercises to improve strength, fitness and flexibility Highly recommend it for anyone at any fitness level. Having said that if you think you’re strong see if you’re lupple-strong w Marc (Btw: supple leopard is the name of a book frequently laying around the gym)

9/10 Great trainer
By Ian Todreas / Boston, USA

I worked with Marc for 3 months. He quickly assessed my weaknesses and customized a program to meet my goals. He was never pushy and was always positive. His routines were varied, challenging, yet not horrendous. I appreciated the attentiveness he brought to each session and his high level of record keeping and organization. He also made himself available on off days to answer questions and provide encouragement.

10/10 Goal-Oriented, Dynamic Trainer
By Jen Crawford / Boston, USA

Marc has proven to be one of the most knowledgeable and invested trainers with who I have had the pleasure of working. As a runner and triathlete, I have specific fitness goals that I want to work toward. Marc has been incredible about designing a training program for me that is completely tailored to those goals. He not only provides exceptional in-person sessions, but has helped to design a program that I can follow to continue our progress for days that we do not train together. As each week goes by, I can see and feel the progress that we are making. The race season has just started for me, but I have already taken several minutes off of last years' 5K time, which I never thought that I would be able to do. Marc also provides great insight on the nutritional aspects that complement the training, creating a holistic program for me that has certainly moved me so much closer to my goals. I'm really looking forward to see what other otherwise seemingly unattainable PRs I will break this year with Marc's guidance!

10/10 A Complete, Safe Training Program
By MImmy Cooper / Boston, United States

Strength, Flexibility, Balance, Endurance! All so important. How do you fit it all in? Working with Marc, he finds a way to address all these important aspects of exercise, especially for older clients. I've been working with Marc for the last year and he is very systematic in his programming. He keeps good notes about progress made and works on progressions that are encouraging. You know where you are going with the progressions and can really see your own progress. I am impressed with my push-ups (no knees for me!) and hope to be doing a "real" pull-up soon!. Marc is a stickler about form and provides a workout where you feel confident that you are not going to hurt yourself... he pushes you to the exact right place. The workouts are always fun, challenging and built on what we've accomplished before. Marc's approach is low-key, yet I always want to make him proud of my successes. I have really loved working out with him and always feel energized after my sessions. He is constantly keeping up with the fitness industry and he works well people of any age and gender.

10/10 Certified PCC Convert!!
By Paul Leone / Boston, USA

Marc's passion for PCC and his ability to convey that passion makes our training sessions truly intense at a physical and mental level. At 42 years old, the bulk of my training had always consisted of heavy weights and 1980s and 90s concepts and routines. With that approach came some gains as well as a tremendous amount of chronic joint pain especially in the shoulders and knees. The amount of lower back pain was absurd. Prior to my work with Marc, it never occurred to me that there was another way...much less one without weights and constant pain. Never in my life would I have imagined people stopping at the YMCA to watch me do Dragon Flags...truth be told, I had never heard of a Dragon Flag! The progressions are as intense as they are fascinating and Marc's ability to explain the "why's" is very important. Marc's attention to strict form and emphasis on intensity over volume has pushed my strength and flexibility well beyond any of my expectations. From advanced bridging techniques to inverted ring training, the comfort zone is a thing of the past. If your training goals include things like strength, flexibility, vascularity, learning, and becoming a better version of YOU, then give Marc a call. Be patient, open-minded and ready to work!

10/10 A systematic training program
By Mark Lapman / Boston, USA

Marc takes a very programmed approach to training. He listens carefully to your goals and really familiarizes himself with your current conditioning, sensitivities, weaknesses, strengths. The whole picture. I am in my 60's, so I wanted a really personal, age-appropriate program, one that would really watch the potential problems in my shoulder and back. He established exactly what i wanted. The program was and is very progressive, aiming to build strength, balance and agility step by step. I've progressed to single leg squats, chin-ups (just a few), long-duration planks and bridges. Lots of push-ups are almost easy at this point. And I can really see and feel the progress. Importantly, I don't think I've come away from any session feeling pain, feeling like i had hurt myself. Instead, I feel invigorated! He keeps his appointments, is on time and, and he makes it all fun.
