I’ve exercised and trained since I was a teenager, and Marco is definitely one of the best coaches I’ve ever had. He constantly challenges my potential, fully knows my strengths and weaknesses, and helps me achieve astounding results. I’m 44 now, have had two kids, and my body is the fittest it’s ever been. Thanks Marco for turning my body around - and, ha ha, getting me to do my first pull up in just three months!
R3 Personal Training is a small gym with a BIG heart and deep deep knowledge and expertise. Each training session is as tough and as gruelling as you want or can handle. No training session is made up of the same workouts. It’s never boring. I turned 55 this year. I’ve never been fitter, leaner and in better state of mind than this. It’s all due to my hard work and discipline but wouldn’t have gotten there without the guys.
