Coach Max is excellent. He has great plans and communicates everything well. We will definitely use his services again over the summer.

Coach Max is great. He is very knowledgeable and seems committed to trying to understand how he can best help our daughter achieve her goals. Looking forward to more sessions.

Max is great! He’s helping me achieve my goals of running a marathon

Max's knowledge of running, attention to detail, and personalized approach left an indelible mark on my training. He analyzed my form, provided constructive feedback, and helped me optimize my technique for improved efficiency and speed. His dedication to my progress was evident in every session, as he challenged and motivated me while creating tailored workouts aligned with my goals.

We have had one coaching session and both of my girls showed improvement in their running events by posting PR’s the next week. In one session Coach Mac was able to assess their current running form, illustrate the correct form and have them perform drills to improve it. Looking forward to our next session. I highly recommend Coach Max!

Met coach Max today for the first time, need some help with my fitness test coming up really soon, so far great experience learned a lot looking forward to more training so I can perform better.

Coach Max was fantastic. I wanted both of my kids to be introduced properly to the fundamentals of sprinting and am very happy with the results we had over just a few sessions. He is a very experienced instructor who worked with both of my kids at their individual levels to help achieve their goals. I highly recommend him to anyone, no matter your skill level.

Coach Max is helping my son prepare for the high school spring track season. The in-person training sessions are useful to refine technique and the training plans are very detailed and purposeful. My son is very happy with his progress and he feels like Coach Max will continue to help him improve.

I worked with Coach Max all year and together we went from zero, to 5k, to half and finally a full marathon. The experience was incredible! Max brought very detailed and personalized planning to every week of training and guided me through gaining speed, distance and over 1,000 miles. I highly recommend him!

Great experience. Super communicator--and wonderful experience as a coach. Highly recommend! Helped me reach my goals!!!

Max is an all around all star that I can’t recommend enough. He is a skillful coach that communicates well and has the experience and knowledge to add to any runner’s skill level.

Coach Max helped my oldest son get to another level after a poor start to the XC season. He started the track season with 2 PRs and ran faster almost every meet. Coach Max pushed him harder than my son had been used to in workouts. In just 2 sessions with my younger son Coach Max vastly improved his form and we saw immediate results. . I would definitely recommend him to those looking to get faster with a great professional coach.

Max is a great listener. He provided feedback on problem areas and suggested sensible remedies.

Max was great! Very knowledgeable and helped tremendously with technique.
