More About Coach Robert

Head college coach - 4 years

Assistant college coach - 14 yrs -- NCAA Division I

Former Athlete -- 1993 WAC conference champion. 3 time juco All American. NJ state group III champion.

Coached All-Americans, conference winners,and named to several track clinics.

I was an All-American Athlete in College, a state champ in high school, my best event was the high jump where I established a university record of 7'3 at the University of New Mexico. But now after 20 years experience in collegiate coaching -- as both a head and assistant coach-- I can proficiently coach all the sprint, jump, hurdles, and throwing events.

Summary
"Robert is a dedicated, driven coach who is well grounded in sports sciences and pedagogical principles for sport. He is a tireless worker and researcher for improved methodologies which allows him to develop sound relationships with his athletes and peers."

Dan Pfaff
Director of Human Performance - Altis
Coach of multiple gold medalists.

Training sessions may be at a track or on grass depending upon volumes, intensities. The athlete must provide their own throwing implements if they are a thrower. I can design conditioning --workout models--but rather work with biomechanical efficiency, as this is the biggest determiner. Most gains in these events at high school can happen just from improving technical training.

Athletes and parents must understand that the best results come from a series of ongoing training sessions. One practice may open up a lot of understanding, but usually I recommend a 3 session package or better yet a 10 session package to realistically accomplish much more. In my experience the athletes who attend ongoing sessions over time progress a lot better. I offer many different packages. Rates vary according to the type of session with the highest rate being 1-on-1 sessions. I can create a multiple session package custom made so ask if you'd like. I can even put together a season long package by request. If you don't see a package you'd like to see on my page, then message me and we will custom design something that fits for you.

Coach Robert was a great coach. My son really enjoys the training and looking forward for another session!

I trained with Coach Robert this past summer to improve in hurdles. He improved my technique and gave me excellent training tips. I would recommend Coach Robert to anyone.

Coach Marchetti is a great coach. He really takes his time with the athletes and makes sure he corrects any bad habits. His training will make you faster and stronger while you learn how to do things correctly. If you want to become a better athlete I definitely recommend Coach Marchetti to anyone!

Great first lesson. My son is working on his high jump. Already with Coach Robert correcting his form he has achieved a personal record.

My son is a thrower, and Coach Robert held three post-season sessions with him. He expanded on the work done with my son's high school coach, providing new techniques to improve his performance. They reviewed videos of professional throwers to model his form and repeatedly went through the necessary movements/positioning always ensuring that he understood what he had to do. As a result, my son is already feeling like he has improved. Between the refined techniques and some exercises Coach Robert gave him to do over the off season, he is looking forward to seeing what he can do next winter and spring. Outstanding Coach.

Coach Robert was great. I'm a Varsity High School runner looking to break my PR. Coach reviewed my form, technique and training schedule and gave me solid info. He was able to break down my arm and stride position and tweak them to increase my performance on my mid-distance and triple jump.

My daughter Courtney learned more from Coach Robert in 75 minutes than she did in one season of track.. He teaches as well as coaches! Courtney is excited to do another session with Coach!

The first practice with Robert was very helpful. I honestly learned more in one session than I did my whole time throwing with my Highschool coach. He takes the time to go over the basics and make sure your movement is fluid while explaining the reasons behind each action. Emphasis is made on technique over distance thrown.

Excellent coaching

Coach Robert gave my daughter the tips and advice she was looking for. She is a sprinter and a hurdler. Her expression was that Coach Robert taught her things that her high school coach has not. She felt that finally she was able to learn new things. Feeling at the same plateau as the other runners, she was looking for a challenge and that's what Coach Robert did for her. She's excited for her next sessions with him!

Robert is a dedicated, driven coach who is well grounded in sports sciences and pedagogical principles for sport.
