More About Coach Michael

Experience coaching primarily high school athletes, but also experience with 4th through 8th grade. I am high school coach, 3 years girls basketball, going into 8th year with boys. On coaching staff that was #1 public high school back to back in NJ. Part of 2 excellent feeder programs (Ask Bobby Hurley). Co-run 3-5 very successful summer camps (3rd-8th grade) every summer.

2 sport Division III athlete at Montclair State University for basketball and track. That was 10+ years ago. More importantly is my track record coaching and developing basketball players. I have developed and coached 4 1000 point scores, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd team All-NJ, All-Union and Morris County 1st-3rd team, 2 Player of the Year (Morris County), North-South Game All-Stars for NJSIAA, many players now playing Division I and III basketball and so on.

Every session is high energy and fast-paced. The primary focus is have the athlete become more fundamentally sound. I can work on any area of ones game.

Client Reviews

Had a great first session with Coach Mike, which he was was very responsive in helping to set up. During our session, he really listened to my training goals and had great insights. I plan to continue working with him this fall and look forward to seeing what he can help me accomplish.

As a life long runner with over 7000 miles and multiple marathons, I reached out to Coach Mike because I wanted to go to the next level. From the day we had our first training session his focus was to help me get results and I did. Always responsive and willing to be flexible with training dates and times Coach took a personal interest in seeing me succeed. I would recommend his training to any athlete and he will help you get the results you want if you're willing to put in the work. I will definitely use him again for future training. (next time the goal will be Boston qualifying!)

I started to train with coach Mike recently. We met first locally to have an assessment of my fitness level and he spent time talking to me to understand my goals, concerns and my strength training besides running. Our later sessions are via phone or Skype and I do text him on daily basis when I run to let him know how I feel and any other feedback such as any pain or discomfort. Coach Mike always encourages me and would listen and adjust our plans according to my feedback. I feel very at ease training with him and get great results. He is very good at keeping me motivated. The suggestion of having a count down app to keep myself disciplined was also brilliant. Will definitely recommend coach Mike to my friends!

Coach Mike has been great. He is really good with teenagers. My son learned a lot in a short period of time. He is not one to practice but Coach Mike talked to him which has motivated my son to practice on his own. I was not sure If this was going to work at first because of scheduling and the hourly rate but Coach Mike worked us into his schedule and I have to say it’s been worth the money. My son really likes the training.

Coach Michael worked fine tuning my son's mechanics. He was patient, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Coach Michael as a running coach!

My daughter is a high school sophomore that is relatively new to competitive running. She is very much an introvert. Coach Michael was engaging, energetic and encouraging. While the workouts are definitely pushing her to work hard, at the end she's still smiling and laughing. Coach Michael is providing valuable information on finding her pace and appropriate training schedules. It's only been two sessions and already he's added value to her running program. If you have a child has a penchant for running, I recommend getting a coach. Specifically, use Coach Michael. He knows how to relate and bring out the best in a young runner.

Coach Michael was great. Our daughter really learned a lot from one session. We will be scheduling again.

Coach Michael, was very patient and encouraging. Would recommend him. My daughter really enjoy working out with him.

Coach Michael Serra is fabulous! He pushes my son to work hard & has fun at the same time! He does everything possible to accommodate his schedule as well! Can't say enough about Coach Michael! So glad we found him!!

Great coach, very knowledgeable.

Coach Mike is awesome! He has a wide variety of experience and knowledge that really makes you feel like you're getting the most out of your coachup experience. He also keeps the workout at your pace, but makes sure that he is pushing you enough to make progress. I would absolutely recommend coach Mike to anyone that is looking to make serious progress and challenge themselves.

Coach Mike was great! My son instantly felt comfortable with him and can't wait to work with him on a weekly basis. He learned better techniques just in one session.

I like the workouts a lot; I think we're doing really well, We're a lot more offensively sound. The defense is picking up, and I think as long as we keep the defense up, we¹'ll be a successful basketball team.
