I've watched Maik training people in the gym. He's always focused on the client he's with at the time and delivers more changes to their bodies than any other trainer I've seen. I didn't know about his education in Literature and History, but it makes sense. He's soft spoken and articulate; not qualities found very often in most trainers. I'm happy that this talented man has put his knowledge into a web-site. It should provide a lot of good 'sneak reading' when I should be working!
