I have strong background in athletics and fitness. It was through athletics I was able to learn the importance of fitness, diet and nutrition. I grew up in the Bronx, where I attended James Monroe High School. From Monroe, Karim went on to play Division I baseball at Howard University then transferred to Division II Mercy College where I was a 2-year starter.

Undersized but determined, Karim tried out for the Arena football team the NY/NJ Revolution and made it as a defensive back. Karim went on to play 3 years with the Revolution, one year spent as the player coach (Assistant defensive back coach).

All clients will receive an intense knowledge based workout with special attention to detail and improved form.

We focus on developing the fast twitch muscles and improve on explosiveness.

Lots of core, Plymetrics, Resistance and quick feet training.

Client Reviews

Karim is a fantastic coach. Really knows his stuff, know how to motivate and is always prompt.

Karim McFarlin is an exceptional speed and conditioning trainer.  I’m now in my fourth year working with Karim.  He has especially helped me with my running technique which has dramatically improved my form and speed. Karim has a broad range of training routines, which he customizes to meet your individual fitness goals and has helped me with both my sprinting, long distance running, and agility. He pushes me to my limits in the training sessions, but always with good humor and positive reinforcement.  As a college soccer player, his training has been critical for my achieving the high level of endurance and explosive speed required to compete on the field. Training over the summer with Coach K made me ready for pre-season pace and stamina tests as well as giving me a step up in games. I have seen enormous improvements in my endurance and speed from working with Karim, and his training was a big part of what enabled me to play soccer at the collegiate level.
I spent this past summer training with Coach McFarlane. In the three months that I worked with him, I improved tremendously, not only physically, but more importantly, intellectually. I have gained invaluable experience perfecting my warmups, drills, technique, and mental tools to persevere when the going gets tough. Many coaches are able to teach the physical aspects of the sport, but very few are able to impart, over a brief period of time, the mentality required to succeed. This is not to say that Coach McFarlane does not focus on the physical aspects of the sport, for he is constantly refreshing his knowledge to reflect the newest advances in training. Additionally, he builds off his foundational knowledge of athletics that he has learned through college, workshops, and his plethora of experience as a coach and as an athlete at every level of sport. It is for these reasons that I cannot highly recommend Coach McFarlane enough, for he will help make your long term goals a reality, as he has mine.
Coach K has always been a huge supporter of mine and one that continues to push me to this day. He’s allowed me to reach points in my athletic career that I otherwise would not have. Our training session are tailored and specific to achieving my goals. I am currently playing college soccer and thanks to him I am planning on running track in college in the next semester. He’s always been someone I could turn to for advice on and off the field. I cannot say enough good things about Coach K.
Coach K has been one of the greatest coaches I have had all my life. He pushes me because he expects the best out of his athletes. Working with him has allowed me to reach into my untapped potential as an athlete. The drills we do are creative and sport specific. You don't have to be a track star to do them. I play baseball and working with coach k and doing his workouts have made me a better athlete for my sport. Also a great guy because he looks out for the kids he trains. Great coach and great guy!
Karim has been instrumental in my speed development in the past months of working with him. He uses a variety of different workouts and is very knowledgeable of speed and training that goes into it. I have seen enormous gains in my speed and agility when working with him and would recommend him to anyone. -cm
