Personal Training

If you're like a lot of people in this city, you're very busy. Everything else comes first. Work, kids, and other responsibilities take priority. You put yourself last and let yourself go. Your health suffers. Having a scheduled workout with me makes you commit the time to do what you need to do to be at your best. If you don’t show up, I'll be calling to find out why!

I'll offer you accountability, support, guidance and a customized exercise program that will bring you the results you want and deserve. I'll help you stick to your exercise program so that you can experience a life changing transformation. Your health will improve, you'll have more energy, you'll look and feel better. I can help.

Boxing Training

Boxing training burns calories faster than you can count them, gets you aerobically fit, improves balance and coordination and will help you get that trimmer body you are looking for. Boxing training is a fun and exhilarating workout for men and women of all ages and fitness levels. It can be a part of your overall fitness program and combined with strength exercises.

Many people don't even feel like they're working out during boxing because they enjoy it so much. If you have never put on a boxing glove, don’t worry. I will start you off slowly with excellent instruction. You will be amazed at the results. This is done in your apartment or building gym. Don't worry about space, not much is needed.

Small Group
Personal Training

Small group personal training or partner training is the ideal solution for people looking for the benefits of one-on-one personal training at a more economical cost. Group fitness training is ideal for two or three people. Exercise sessions are customized for each individual’s goals, taking into account medical and exercise history. Ive trained many married couples and mature adults.

Training can take place in your apartment, building gym or the park. Body weight exercises, exercise tubing, kettle bell, agility ladder and the TRX suspension system are some of the equipment I use. Strength and conditioning, aerobic fitness, balance and flexibility are addressed. Boxing can also be added if desired.

TRX Suspension Training

Get into the best shape of your life with TRX Suspension Training. Developed by former Navy Seal Randy Hetrick, TRX Suspension Training utilizes exercises that build strength, balance, stabilization, core involvement along with full body engagement. This piece of equipment can take the place of heavy weights and delivers excellent results, or can be combined with a weight training program. They can compliment one another.

Many people find TRX training enjoyable, challenging and different than tradition weight training. TRX exercises can be modified for beginners to very advanced athletes. The TRX can be used in the comfort of your home or outdoors. Watch the video for a small sample of TRX exercises.

I am 70 years old and I found Mark Darco to be the perfect trainer for my needs. He has been a life saver for both my wife and I during the pandemic. He is experienced, knowledgeable and patient. Do not procrastinate - call him now!

Mark Darco is a great personal trainer! I am not someone who particularly looks forward to exercise, but I find with Mark’s approach the time goes by fast and I can feel that over the six months I have been training with him my balance has improved, I am stronger and more comfortable in my body. In his approach he is careful, thoughtful and systematic.

Mark is the best! He’s thoughtful and personalized every workout to how I was feeling each day and always had my goals in mind. He thinks both long and short term, is courteous, flexible and just a joy to work out with.

Mark and I have worked together for a couple months now. I found him to be surprisingly affordable and REALLY effective. At first, I had doubts that working with a trainer would really improve my physical condition (I had less satisfying results in the past with another trainer); suffice to say, those fears have been assuaged. I am the strongest I have ever been in my life, and I am losing the flab I (quite frighteningly) managed to acquire over the course of the last two years. Mark has twenty years of experience which manifests in not only a rock solid knowledge of the science behind muscle gain/fat loss, but a wonderful bedside manner. Whereas other trainers sadistically delight in pushing their clients to painful, unsustainable and even dangerous extremes, Mark focuses on the long game, prioritizing safety, form, and yes, keeping things challenging. I’ve seen him work with people of all ages and fitness goals (I’m relatively young and looking to be as muscular as possible, whereas I’ve seen him work with seniors just looking to keep fit and functional). I can’t really imagine someone looking for a trainer working with Mark and not being satisfied.

Mark is a wonderful personal trainer and an even better person. He was always willing to accommodate to my needs and schedule and was always available for questions or concerns I may have had. Mark will cater to the clients' every need, no matter their fitness level or health. He did wonders for me and I highly recommend you give him a call. Thank you Mark!

I'm about to turn 76, and have never felt as young as I do now from working out with Mark. He carefully tailors his workouts to your strength level and the progress you make.

Mark is a great trainer that I have worked with for years. He is always changing up the routine, and will change around workouts depending on your goals and your day. He's also particularly skilled at working with you if you have an injury or anything else that could limit you. He'll ensure you get a full workout, safely and effectively

Success Stories

No one was more surprised than me to find that I loved boxing. It’s surprisingly satisfying, effective and fun. At fifty I’m fitter and stronger than I was at thirty. I started boxing workouts and became a knock-out.

I have been training with mark for six months now. He’s excellent at designing a personal workout regimen for your needs. He’s very knowledgeable, knows his anatomy very well and look forward to working out with him for years to come.

Jeffrey Rosenblatt Brooklyn, NY

I decided to start working with a trainer because I needed help in developing workouts that would not exacerbate several injuries. I chose Mark because he seemed to have experience with similar people and because I was impressed by the thoroughness of our initial phone conversation.
