Optimist Track NYC has a Summer program that runs from June 27th to August 5th, I coach athletes daily at the Yankee Stadium Track. You will become a more pliable and technically efficient runner through exercises that target your weaknesses, and you will be a contender in what ever event you run from your hard work during track workouts.

Although I coach in the afternoons, I like to fitness train in the mornings. I aim to improve my clients mobility, energy levels, and general performance in every day life. If you are new to exercising, I can guarantee that you will be 50 percent stronger and more mobile after two months of training with me regularly.
