Mike exceeded all my expectations. He is a dedicated trainer who is able to get results even with older clients like me. I actually look forward to our training sessions.

I love that Michael does everything he possibly can to serve his clients and the trainers who use his space. He is such an amazing trainer, and has been such an inspiration to me, as someone who also trains children and teenagers. He’s generous, patient, versatile, and just about the best person I know.”

In those years he has never once missed a date (we train very early in the morning), he is always in a good mood and most important, he has adjusted the workout as he has continued to learn different techniques and to use different equipment. Michael is a consummate professional and I unequivocally recommend to anyone serious about getting in/ staying in shape.”

Susan McClanahan
Independent Publishing Professional

“Michael saved me from a knee problem that resulted from running my first marathon at 60 years old when I was told by a doctor that it would be the last marathon. In 3 months I was completely fine and have run 4 New York’s and 1 Boston since. Michael not only has made me one of the fittest 66-year-olds in NY, but he has supported me in every way, physically, spiritually and mentally thru 3 breast cancers and recovery. He is now working with our whole family. My two daughters are working with him as they strengthen their minds and bodies with Core Fitness and Michael’s loving but challenging approach.”

He is always punctual, he carefully plans out each session,and he pushes me to do the best I can. Out of the two years I have worked with him he has never once cancelled a session and he has always been enthusiastic.”

Bill Linehan
Owner, Body Redemption Fitness Training

“In my decades as a fitness trainer I’ve worked with hundreds of trainers and dozens of facilities, but have met no one better to work with than Mike Margulies. The quality of his work reflects his personal virtues. As a trainer he’s reliably knowledgeable and sincere, truly dedicated to helping clients whose interests he really takes to heart. As a facility owner he works diligently to provide state-of-the-art equipment in a clean, friendly environment. In both capacities he conducts business ethically and well. One might say that his business strategy is to succeed by deserving success.”

Lynne Mikulak
Chaplain at New York Presbyterian Hospital

“Michael has helped me develop a whole foods healthy eating plan and exercise program specifically for my needs that has me feeling 100% better already after a month, with a decrease in weight, and in allergy and arthritis symptoms among other health issues, and an increase in energy and total well-being. Michael is extremely caring, flexible in his program to really address the issues, encourages you to go beyond your limits but really pays attention so you don’t go over your limits in an unhealthy way. I trust him implicitly. We have more work to do, and I couldn’t imagine a better guide!”
