Excellent. Jason really enjoys going to him.

Coach Marvin was really great with my daughter. He obviously is a highly experienced track coach and was able to pinpoint where she needs to tweak her form.

Coach Marvin is an outstanding person my daughter was very comfortable with him and enjoy her first sessions.

Two great sessions with Coach Marvin so far! Very knowledgable and motivating. Looking forward to future sessions!

Great session with Coach Marvin today. My son really enjoyed it! Will definitely book more.

Today was my first session with Coach Marvin. He did a great job in hearing about my goals and also where my baseline levels where/ are to help craft a plan to help me achieve my time goals for a 400 and 800 in about 3 months. He did an excellent job of easing me into things since I havent done a speed workout in over a year. I look forward to my next session!

Coach Marvin is a great coach. During the first session, Coach Marvin made an assessment of my daughter skills and abilities, he was able to come up with a proposed plan, he also gave her some feedback and recommendations to follow. His experience in the area of track and field is clearly extensive. Do not hesitate to use, Coach Marvin, my daughter and I surely will recommend him to others.

Coach Marvin is an excellent coach. His skill and expertise have helped my daughter to improve her technique. Her performance has vastly improved. I would recommend him for athletes of all ages.
