great workout. I’ve been doing martial arts for 15 years, and looking for someone who can il my game. Serge fits the bill - I learnt a bunch of new techniques, improved some others and left exhausted. it was great!
I have trained mixed martial arts with Evis on a regular basis. His teaching style was very hands on and he gave me excellent tips on my form and technique. I highly recommend training with him if you want to excel at MMA.
Outstanding grappling and practical application of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kun Do. I feel very confident that I can protect myself and my family if ever put to the test. Mr. Tosado is extremely knowledgeable on various forms of fighting and has a efficient and straight forward teaching style. I would recommend all ages best, Sifu is warm and down to earth best martial arts class by far!
I have known Mike for a long time. Hands down, he is the first guy I go to for my fitness program! A knowledgeable professional in so many areas who takes his time to work with you and cares about your fitness and health. A person of true integrity is a rare commodity these days and Mike is one of those individuals...... Soke John C.

It is my great pleasure to study and work with Master Mark Kline. If you are interested in learning the martial arts and understanding how and why they work I highly recommend Master Kline's PinPoint Method and his Kyusho Institute.
I've trained with countless personal trainers out in NJ, VA, and here in NYC from private gyms (90 Second fitness) to public gyms ( Equinox, NYSC, LA fitness, Balleys, Mid City, MPHC, and Synergy) specifically for sprinting, fat loss, proper technique, and for other miscellaneous goals so I feel confident in my following assessment of Emmanuel George (a.k.a. Manny). I've attended approximately 10 private training lessons with Manny so far and found his style both enjoyable in terms of keeping the mood upbeat and feeling positive, while still providing a supremely intense work out along with solid technical and engaging feedback that would improve my workout and performance. I'm a stickler for proper posture and technique so I found it refreshing to see that Manny knew his stuff. I also appreciate the fact that he is extremely punctual, flexible, and accommodating with his scheduling. Manny has trained me at my gym, at his private gym, and even Central Park. And so far, he has arrived on time, with an infecting cheerful spirit, and prepared with all the equipment and with a mapped out workout plan already in mind. I really dislike it when other trainers just 'wing it' on the spot; fortunately for me, Manny shows much more initiative than that. Manny is one of the most patient, well-trained, highly skilled, reliable, and experienced personal trainers in the NYC Area. Not only does he offer extremely competitive rates and packages, but he is also extremely knowledgeable with mixed martial arts, free weights, and calisthenics. My initial goal when first starting with Manny was to just get back on a regular workout routine. However, I've already noticed substantial muscle gain, toner body, fat loss, and a much stronger core. Whatever Manny's workouts are doing for my body, it's definately working. As aforementioned, I've taken privates and group classes elsewhere, but they pale in comparison to Manny. He carries a commendable etiquette and professional and a great personality; he doesn't rush or blaze through the techniques and session with frustration and ignorance as others have with me. He even offers to take your body fat and mass stats and a diet plan. So all in all, I highly recommend seeing Manny whether you are an absolute beginner new to working out or an avid athlete with targeted goals. Keep up the good work Emmanuel! Best, SC.
Malek invited me for a free session to try out his training and see if we were a good fit. It was great. He analyzed my fitness level (very poor) and we trained in mixed martial arts (mostly boxing). He assessed my abilities and was very intuitive to my needs. He frequently asked if I needed water and he knew when to slow down and pick up the pace. I signed up for more sessions. It was a bit pricey, but I look forward to them, which is something I haven't found in years.
Lamar is a special kind of trainer. I say that because whatever your goal is, he goes out of his way to find the solutions that work best for you. He could easily just give you a cookie cutter program and absent himself from your goals; but whether it is using technology or putting his own body to work with yours, he exhaust himself finding the best solution for you. He will meet you at your level and then help you improve and become better at what it is that you do. In my case I have been an amateur martial arts athlete most of my life and in my late 40's I have decided that competing in the open Ultra Heavy Weight Class in Brasilian Jiujitsu would be a blast. But I needed to improve my conditioning. I called on Lamar. Not only did he design a program for me and my specific needs as an older athlete. He also suited up in a Gi/Kimono and drilled with me until neither of us could barely move. The result was both a bronze and later a silver metal in my first two competitions. I could not a have achieved my goals without his help. That is what I want in a trainer . A trainer who cares about what it is I want to do rather than making me into something I'm not. I find that to be the difference between a novice and a master level trainer, of which is the latter, Lamar McKay is a Master LevelTrainer. Jose A. Esquea
I've been studying FMA under Guro Alex for about 8 months. He not only helped me reconnect with FMA, but because of his background in fitness, has also shown me exercises to complement the martial arts training. If you are looking for an effective self-defense class but require a physical fitness element to complement that training, then I highly suggest you seek Guro Alex.
My work stand out from the rest because you get one on one training at a group rate
