10/10 Helped me pass my RKC!
By Mary O. / Hoboken, USA

I was nervous about signing up for the RKC in NYC so I reached out to Marco who was hosting the course at his gym. Marco has a knack for breaking down everything so simply and really helped me gain the confidence I needed to really crush my RKC testing! I am now working with him for my level 2 certification and am amazed with how much I am learning along the way.

10/10 Best training EVER!
By Melissa Nelson / Manhattan, USA

I have been working with Marco for about a year and he has made a tremendous difference in my physical well being. He has an amazing understanding of the body and, with his encouragement, I have gotten stronger in a way that is safe and balanced. Marco is a wonderful guide to helping anyone realize their own personal fitness goals and potential.

10/10 The best training experience I have ever had!
By Kaitlin Walker / NYC, USA

I am absolutely thrilled to be working out with Marco at Momentum Fitness! Marco is a top-notch coach, teacher, motivator and mentor. I deeply appreciate his high level of professionalism, knowledge and enthusiasm. He wants each of us to reach our full potential while emphasizing proper form and safety. Since beginning to work out with Marco six months ago, I have grown in strength, stamina, flexibility, agility, health, confidence and utilization of correct Kettlebell form. Marco has given me ongoing encouragement during workouts and even through occasional emails. I greatly enjoy his workouts which are full of variety, challenge and skill building as well as tailored warm up and cool downs that directly support each of our workouts. Marco practices what he teaches. He is a remarkably strong and motivated athlete who loves to master diverse and new skills while passing on his own passion to others around him. Not only is Marco a very generous person during the workout experience, he demonstrates that he truly cares about the people who walk through his doors and puts 110% into his clients. Marco is an absolute blessing to me, and I am so grateful to be a client at Momentum Fitness!

10/10 Great Introduction to Kettlebells!
By Eric Strauss / Brooklyn, USA

I took the Kettlebells 101 class lead by Marco at Momentum Fitness and it was a great introduction to strength and conditioning training with kettlebells.

I felt compelled to write this review today because here in NYC we just got our first big snow storm of the year. I was out shoveling snow and it was clear that the muscle memory I developed from kettlebells helped me perform the ballistic movements for shoveling deep snow more easily. The class helped me to develop core strength and good lifting habits that keep my lower back and spine safe.

The class was fun, informative, and challenging. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to develop strength, conditioning and mobility through a simple exercise program. Now that I have the basics down I am certainly looking forward to trying out Marco's more advanced Kettlebell classes at Momentum Fitness!

10/10 Fixed my back pain and I now feel stronger than ever
By Karl McCallum / New York, USA

I never expected to feel this good and confident in just 6 months. Thanks so much to Marco and his team at Momentum Fitness! I had my fears of being a 40-something year old guy with a back problem going to a gym, but I had to do something to fix my ongoing problems. I have a physically demanding job with lots of repetitious lifting, reaching, pulling, pushing and squatting( I used to bend over a lot which I now know wasn't proper form for lifting at all). I had a sciatica back issue that left me sitting around for 8 months gaining weight and being idle, that truly sucked! after hearing about Momentum Fitness from a co-worker I took the first step hesitantly. Marco got back to me immediately and assured me that he could help me work around and, eventually, past my back pain. He taught me how to move better and more efficiently in order to get the most out of our workouts without exacerbating my existing issues. At the beginning I still had a twinge in my back from the sciatica that I would guard but, as time went on, it disappeared! Marco had me building my core up and slimming down, which made my life and work feel so much better. It isn't easy, but after each visit you know you gained something because Marco has the knowledge and patience to help you achieve your goals. The workouts are new and different each session, keeping things interesting and wondering to myself " what does he have up his sleeve today?". Thanks Marco for the guidance and knowledge you passed on to me, i am FOREVER grateful! You have to start working with the team at Momentum Fitness! If I can do it at my age, so can you!

10/10 Marco is the BEST!!!
By Peter Smith / Brooklyn, NY, United States

Marco is a phenomenal trainer &awesome person. I trained with Marco for about two months & never felt healthier or more confident than when I was following his plan. Marco works you hard & encourages clean eating. IT WORKS. I lost weight, toned muscle &am stronger than I can ever remember being. If I hadn't moved to a new city, I would keep training with him for as long as possible. There aren't enough good things to say. Marco is truly invested in your personal success. On days you don't meet, a text message reminder to make healthy choices will encourage you to stay on track. You set goals together and work hard to reach them. This isn't just some one-size-fits-all program... He will learn your limits and strengths as you train and push you as hard as he knows YOU can go. He does it all with a smile & energy that make you want to push through that one last rep to make him proud. He switches up your routine constantly so you never get bored or tired of the same old thing. He's also a genuinely good person & cares about his athletes. You won't be just another client passing through. I could go on & on about how amazing he is, but long story short: If you want to train with a genuinely awesome person who is invested in reaching your personal goals, train with Marco. You WILL get results & you will NOT regret it.

10/10 Best investment I have ever made!
By Dan Egan / Manhattan, United States

Marco is awesome. I've been working with him for over two years and the changes have been outstanding. More than trainers I've worked with in the past, he is knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to tailor workouts and strengthening exercises to me and my specific needs and goals. It's definitely worth the investment!

10/10 Marco is a awesome trainer!
By Amy G. / New York/Los Angeles, USA

I have been working with Marco for about a year now and cannot say enough wonderful things. I initially started training privately in NYC to build upon the kettlebell/body weight exercises that I had learned in LA in an effort to stay on top of things as I traveled back and forth. What I have gained is a ton of strength and mobility from the sessions that Marco designs around my strengths, weaknesses, and goals. No two sessions are ever the same, and there is nothing better than seeing progress each and every week. Marco is encouraging, friendly and one of the most accommodating people I know. Every session with him- though not easy- pushes me closer towards a healthy body, mind, and spirit. I highly recommend Momentum Fitness!

10/10 Marco is the GREATEST TRAINER EVER!
By Lori Palmer / Manhattan, United States

Marco is a great personal trainer and has helped me so much. I feel that he really concentrates on the individual client's needs and also adapts the workout plan when needs or fitness levels change. For instance, I initially worked with Marco on balance and strengthening, and added endurance and cardio along the way. He always switched up my routine so that boredom doesn't set in. And, most importantly, he is nice and he is funny!

10/10 Awesome Trainer!
By Lisa Carr / NYC, United States

Marco is a dedicated trainer, who is detailed oriented, patient and professional.
I would highly recommend Marco as a personal trainer for anybody, whether a novice or seasoned fitness enthusiast.
