Introduction: Are you interested in getting into the best shape of your life? Are you interested in learning how to defend yourself? Are you interested in building self confidence? Are you interested in becoming stronger both physically and mentally? I will help you achieve your goals! I use training methods used by professional athletes to get you into fight/fit shape! I am a certified personal trainer and self defense expert. I work with clients to help them reach their personal best. I incorporate weights, resistance bands, plyometrics, calisthenics, mitt work, heavy bags, and conditioning to push you to new levels of fitness. I use training methods used by professional athletes to sculpt your body and get you into fight/fit shape. I have over 25 years experience in martial arts: I have a purple belt in Brazilian Jui Jitsu and have trained for 13 years, in Brazil and New York. I have a brown belt in Judo from Kokushi Budo Institute in Manhattan, New York. I have been training Muay Thai for 16 years and train under Mastre Luis Azeredo from the legendary Chute Boxe gym in Brazil. He is one of only a few men to beat Anderson Silva, the former UFC Champion. I train in boxing with former World Champion Jill Emery. I have been teaching Krav Maga for 7 years. I also teach at Everybodyfights, George Foreman's III gym. I approach each client as an individual with specific needs and strengths.

I have been taking classes with Serge for a few weeks now - I could not be happier! He has made it so convenient for me and I already feel stronger and more confident in my ability. If you're looking for a way to get in shape, fine tune your skills, or are simply curious about self defense he is the guy for you!

Personal Training

Serge is an excellent trainer, bar none. I've had trainers all my life. Serge uses a combination of intense boxing techniques--you have to be smart, quick, coordinated and aerobic to do this, he will teach you how; and then band conditioning, which has been proven to be the fastest way to get in shape. I've lost 15 lbs of fat, and gained 10 lbs of muscle in one month. It doesn't get any better than this. All for $90/session. I see him twice/week. The best there is.

Personal Training

It was honestly really great. Serge had me do a variety of exercises that worked best with me and he went at my pace. He has a great personality and he’s very funny. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to get into shape or continue with their fitness journey.

Private Self Defense Lessons

We hired Serge to work with our sons on self defense and fitness. We have been so very impressed. He really connects with the boys and focuses on defense skills, fitness, self-esteem, and respect. We are so grateful to have found him. He is amazing at what he does and we know we are getting a tremendous value and doing our sons a wonderful service. We cannot say enough about this all-around professional and skilled trainer and simply great guy!
