About Mario

I have a special interest in trained and non-trained individuals body’s adaptations to endurance events like marathons and triathlons. From my own experiences and interests in strength and conditioning, I’ve gained valuable knowledge in how to train for these events and have shared these tools to help others achieve their goals. I enjoy helping individuals to have a fun, safe, and enjoyable time during our workout sessions. I have completed many 5K, 10K, 26K, half marathons, full marathons, Ultra, Sprint Tris, Olympic Tris, and Half Ironman Tris. I hope soon to add more to my list and do even longer distances. In these events, it is import to have an overall and balance fitness in order to prevent injures and perform at peak levels. If you have a goal or goals for your next event or questions about generalized fitness, I will be there for you. I can explain things simply or as technical as you want. Allowing me to be a part of your success in your personal goal is why I do what I do. I have helped my runners drop their min/mile pace up to 2 minutes faster. Not only have I helped them achieve this, but we did it while minimizing injuries throughout their training program. I also perform running gait anaylsis to to determine if there are some issues that may arise during the training and to help improve your running mechanics which will make you a faster and pain free runner or athlete. I will challenge you, but that is becuase I believe in you and your ability to overcome what life has to throw at you. So what are you waiting for? Book your training with me and let have some fun while putting the work in. 

My training philosophy

Training should be progressive, fun and always changing. Exercises and workouts should always be about quality and not quantity.

My training experience

I have trained hundreds of individuals on a one-on-one and group base for over 10 years. I have helped many individuals achieve their personal goals in overall fitness and in endurance and short races.
