Alexander Keller


CEO Thyssen Krupp

"Mr. Maier, I'd like to thank you for all of your advice and the good discussions we've had. It's important to me to know that someone is concerned with me and gives me feedback. I would have come to see you if it had been only for five minutes! I'm really looking forward to our next meeting."

DR. GEORG DAVIDSON


Doctor of Medicine | PRACTICE OWNER

"GM Trainings was the perfect fit for helping us add a professional training component to our program of preventive health and fitness checks. Included in the program were an osteopathic explanation of work-related issues and problems and nutritional aspects of a metabolic analysis. An indispensable part of the instruction was the individual training videos, which enabled complex movements in combination exercises to be reliably reproduced. Overall conclusion: very comprehensive, professional approach combined with a high degree of competence and dedication. Thank you for everything!"

DR. HUBERT GILG


Doctor of Medicine | PRACTICE OWNER

"Should I recommend the services from GM Trainings? Absolutely. The analysis procedures were outstanding. We were indeed able to improve the relationship between effort and reward."

GERHARD UHL


GENERAL MANAGER AND SHARE HOLDER | PHYSIO & DOCS MUNICH

"My opinion about gm trainings so far: professional; scientifically founded; warm atmosphere; sharp and direct way of working; not only teaching how to execute specific sport programs, but considering all the relevant parameters that help optimising the athlete’s performance."

PETER FLÜHR


BUSINESS CONSULTANT AND MENTAL COACH

"Good morning, Gerhard! Now I’ve finally found the time to give you a feedback. First of all an overall impression of you: you gave me very valuable impulses for my own work. I was also greatly impressed by your ability to analyse situations and circumstances. Now, for my assessment: I found your way of dealing with the students during our seminar very refreshing and positive. I also liked the way you motivated and integrated the people and how you showed them their own personal capabilities and potential. My impression is that you come to the point and that you have a mission. I look forward to our next project. Once more, thank you for your support. Peter."

CORNELIUS VOIGT


PSYCHOTHERAPIST | PRACTICE OWNER

"In the context of our work relationship, I experienced Mr. Maier as very competent. It is not about developing a concept and then tailoring the client, but about taylor-made solutions for the clients."

MANFRED SCHNELLDORFER


OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST AND WORLD CHAMPION IN FIGURE SKATING 1964

"BestOf Training hits the weak spot of today’s society. Goal-setting and perseverance are the crucial factors for mental and physical development. Success, balance and contentedness result from consequent work on the basics. The BestOf Training Program is what I consider an effective method to avoid people without orientation belonging to any target group."

DUANNE MOESER


SPORTS MANAGER AEV PANTHERS | DEL 1ST LEAGUE HOCKEY GERMANY

"Excellent work! The guys have never been supported with so much intensity before. The team is ready fort he season now. Than you very much."

Dennis Endras


MOST VALUABLE PLAYER (MVP) HOCKEY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2010

"Far beyond the subject fitness, BestOf Training is a program which does not only apply to top leaders and professional athletes like me, but to all people who want to exploit their full potential in life. Take your chance now!"

Anton Makarenko


FORMER. 1.FC NÜRNBERG | FCA | GERMAN BUNDESLIGA FOOTBALL

"You are the first coach who has used video and an interview as part of your analysis of my condition and training. I'm sure that the exercises you've shown me are really helping. Today, my back pain is completely gone!"

MICHAEL FELLMANN


HEAD COACH NATIONAL SAILING TEAM

"Our work with you up to this point has been great. Thank you very much! Next year, I would like to extend our work together. It would be great if our national team used the fitness concepts of GM Trainings."

CHRISTIAN FREIMÜLLER


JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPION SURFING RS:X

"The GM Trainings seminar for the German Olympic Team to enhance sports performance (including the Six-Step-Warm Up-Concept) was perfect."

LARRY MITCHELL


Head Coach AEV Panthers | DEL 1st League Hockey Germany

"I worked together with Gerhard Maier for approximately 4 years and was very impressed with his expertise. Maier was responsible for and lead our team of strength and conditioning coaches. He set up and organized group and individual training for all of our hockey players. He was very knowledgeable and dedicated to making all of our players and team better. Gerhard and I met on a regular basis to trade opinions and our knowledge, in order to achieve our team's goals. I enjoyed my time working on a team with Gerhard and highly recommend his services."

Kenneth Latta


HEAD COACH ESVK JOKER GERMAN BUNDESLIGA2 HOCKEY

"I think your work is excellent. This is the kind of individual coaching and care I know from the NHL. As a head coach I need to know how my players are performing. All the athletes you have been coaching so far show a positive development."

TOBIAS DRAXINGER


TRIPLE NATIONAL CHAMPION WITH BERLIN ICE BEARS 2004, 2005 & 2007

"The BestOf Training concept is excellent. You don’t only deal with physical training, but with your whole life and perspectives of your own personality. I didn’t know any similar programs before. The whole program is very well-structured and therefore easy to follow. At first, I was a bit skeptical, but I trusted my Head Coach who recommended Gerhard. Now I can see the results."

JOHN ZEILER


FORMER NHL CLUB LOS ANGELES KINGS

"I liked how you worked with me individually, just specific stuff. You didn’t just make us tired to get results, but serious testing. I liked how you guys did the tests. The guys who worked with us were very competent and friendly."

ALMUTH SOHN


2nd PLACE GERMAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS KAJAK FREESTYLE

"I wanted to thank you one more time for the support at the German National Championship. It was very inspiring to work together with you and your ‘performance’ at the competition was great. I think I learned a lot about competition in general and about myself. Almuth."

TONI WILHELM


GERMAN NATIONAL CHAMPION | OLYMPIC TEAM SURFING

"Since we started with the new nutrition and exercising plan, I feel more vital and motivated and I’m looking forward to every training session. I had noticeable positive results after only a short time, without having to suffer to get them."

THOMAS JAMES TREVELYAN


ECAC PLAYER OF THE YEAR 2006

"Thank you, Gerhard. That really means a lot to me. I really feel like I have found a good track which I will continue to pursue."

DR. CHRISTINE HÖSS-JELTEN


GENERAL MANAGER SPORTS | University OF AUGSBURG

"For our University Sports Programs, Gerhard Maier successfully developed and presented a health promotion concept which is certified and complies with German insurance prevention standards (see § 20 SGB).

Hannes Neumeier


Head Official Public Youth Welfare Service | Landkreis Augsburg

"You're a breath of fresh air to the world of youth support. Sometimes your ways of solving problems are suprising and unconventional, but they are always based on a professional, holistic approach.

MARTIN HANNIG


HEAD OFFICIAL PUBLIC YOUTH WELFARE SERVICE | LANDKREIS Günzburg

PETER PFEUFFER


Resort Manager | Bavarian Sports Association

"Because our education manuals are used state-wide, we must carefully select specialists and institutions for their development. Gerhard Maier enjoys our complete trust as previously proved his competency and wide range of experience when he worked as a speaker for our sports foundation. He conceived and wrote the manuals for special topics in the areas training science, methodologies and didactics."

MICHAEL RITTER


GENERAL MANAGER | BAVARIAN GYMNASTICS ASSOCIATION

"Gerhard Maier has a profound knowledge of sports science and training in general. For this reason and the fact that he knows exactly how to motivate people, he has always been a very popular speaker and an enrichment to our institution. We are proud to offer an exclusive instructor certification created by Mr. Maier. This was only possible because of Mr. Maier’s initiative and hard work."

MRS. RÖSLER


REGIONAL MANAGER | IHK EDUCATION ACADEMY

"Mr. Maier has initiated the development of a new IHK certification on the topic of fitness and worked on realizing the project with great effort. The main goal was to develop a very practical program with high quality standard that would satisfy customer needs perfectly.
This task was managed very well by Mr. Maier. Working with Mr. Maier has always been very positive and productive. In the future, we will continue to count on his services."

GERD KOLLECKER

PETER BECKER


AREA MANAGER | PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION CENTER OF BAVARIAN ECONOMY

"Mr. Maier took over the presentation of the topics of education, conception of manuals and preparation of students for their examinations. He motivated the participants through his exciting manner of teaching and helped the students deal with fears of not passing their exams. Because of the excellent experience we have had so far with Mr. Maier, we intend to expand our cooperation in the future."

Dieter FIEDLER


VICE PRINCIPAL | GRAMMAR SCHOOL

"Dear Mr. Maier, on behalf of my school, I would like to thank you one more time for your support and I hope that we will continue to work together in the future."

Furthermore, Mr. Maier is involved in present research with us in cooperation with the local university."

SUSANNA HORNUNG


YOUTH ORGANIZATION | CITY OF AUGSBURG

"Only because of Gerhard’s personal engagement and motivation, was it possible to open the new fitness room in our youth center. The opening event and the first training session were great successes. The fitness room is used very frequently. We are looking forward to the next months when we can offer an authorized fitness concept to our visitors."

DAGMAR BLANC


FEDERAL EMPLOYMENT AGENCY

"With your optimism and motivating attitude, you quickly proved your competence and won my trust. Already during the screening it was clear how important you regard the people who put themselves in your hands. I’ve learned so much from you and hope we can work together frequently in the future."

GÜNTHER KLOSS


GRAMMAR SCHOOL TEACHER

"Dear Gerhard! Your lecture has inspired me. It was well prepared and presented. The concept was sound and the detailed structure was perfect. I especially appreciated the practical use of your points as wells as your friendly way of communicating. Your way of dealing with people requires special appreciation. Kind regards, Günther."

ULRICH LINGG


Director | Prisma Children and Family Care Center

"Since you are willing to deal with challenging clients, I rate your work motivation as extremely high.

Therefore, your work in the context of the BestOf Program has to be considered as successful."

TONI POTOTZKI


SOCIAL WORKER

"What you have already accomplished in the life of this teenager is amazing. I haven’t seen a program like this so far. You consult a line of experts in their fields what cannot be accomplished easily by everybody. I consider your strong activity as very positive and especially the precision of your actions."

JÖRG CHRISTIAN SILBE


GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS INSPECTOR | PRINCIPAL

"Mr. Maier, thank you very much for your support. It would be a pleasure to work together again in the future."

TESTIMONIALS – INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS

AMY EDWARDS


USA CAMP DIRECTOR | MICHIGAN

"Gerhard has a wide area of expertise in training and coaching. Gerhard led many events and I have certainly lived through a long career of program directing, but Gerhard even surprised me with new and inventive suggestions for our programs. My only disappointment is that he will be working for somebody else instead of me."

YANG YU


FC TIANJIN SONGJIANG | 1. FUSSBALL-LIGA CHINA

"Thank you very much. Your work has really helped us improve our performance. We hope that you come back soon and work for us again."

ROBERT JANNI


CLUB MANAGEMENT FITNESS FIRST

"Our fitness center is a very exclusive club and belongs to Europe’s largest fitness chain with over 100 units in Germany. Gerhard is a very flexible team player. His knowledge in sports science is outstanding. We have always been pleased to send our clients to Gerhard. The fact that he speaks several foreign languages makes it much easier to deal with our international clients."

TOMAS SLOVAK


KONTINENTAL HOCKEY LEAGUE | RUSSIA

"I enjoyed every minute, especially when you brought up new ideas for me. I would like to book your team for our Olympic Team next summer."

GABE GAUTHIER


NCAA CHAMPION 2004 + 2005 | UNIVERSITY OF DENVER

"I like it, because it is new. It is innovative. The techniques are much different to what I am used to. Sometimes trainers just want to promote themselves in front of a group of people, but you are here for us the athletes. The video: I have never had someone make a video of me. Taking me on video to see how I do is an excellent method to see the improvement afterwards."

SHANE JOSEPH


WCHA FIRST ALL-STAR TEAM 2003 | MINNESOTA STATE UNIVERSITY

"The testing and coaching were very educative. You guys really know what you’re talking about."

HERBERT PIETZSCH


COMMODITY TRADER | LONDON | VIENNA

"BestOf Training: a brilliant program, a well rounded and deeply thought trough system of processes to optimize your whole life. By applying the principles covered in Gerhard’s BestOf Training, you get the opportunity to learn routines and ways to become and stay successful. Many people know Gerhard as an expert in optimizing physical performance, e.g. professional athletes, but he has a unique capability to cover all other life areas for a wide audience. I am sure that all users will widen their horizon."

VARIOUS TESTIMONIALS - INDIVIDUALS

NATASCHA FRUSCELLA


Professional Model

"Excellent, the whole package. Where else can you find such a variety of services? Isn’t it a dream to know that somebody really takes care of your health? I especially appreciate the individual approach what differentiates GM Trainings from conventional personal training. Gerhard and his people thoroughly investigate which expert they include for which topic. The whole program helped me to rethink everything I’m doing and to look underneath the surface."

YÜCEL ÜNAL


MBA | IT CONSULTANT

"The BestOf Training concept literally became a very valuable and action-oriented tool. A profound inventory, examples and clear instructions provide a program to make individual decisions, set goals and achieve them. Above all, the person who participates in the program will learn more about herself from different ankles. The successes and expertise of the author in his coaching career obviously helped designing a consistent program. If you know Gerhard Maier, you know BestOf Training. He leads by example."

PARENTS


16-YEAR OLD WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER

"Dear Mr. Maier, we want to thank you for your tireless dedication. It was your support which helped our family move ahead. Our son has become much more confident and self-reliant. Thank you again for your efforts to find an apprenticeship."

INGRID WEIMER


Golfer 50+

"I use an artificial hip joint. For years, I wasn’t able to get through a single day without pain. Playing golf without pain seemed a fantasy. But I used to be a passionate golf player. Following Gerhard’s personal training program has allowed me to once again play golf pain-free."

GERDA ROTHSCHÄDEL


Marathon Runner

"Gerhard’s tips helped me a lot for my first marathon. Especially the mental preparation for the day of competition. The additional strength training helped me maintain healthy joints and a good level of general health."

THOMAS HERZER


REGIONAL SALES MANAGER

"Why I chose the services of GM Trainings? If I can go to the best, why go anywhere else. It’s the technical competence and the opportunity to ask important questions. We started with a detailed analysis and my goals. Gerhard has a large network of experts backing him up with knowledge and service. For example, if I need a physiotherapist or a medical specialist, Gerhard is the right guy to ask. Everything comes together, i.e. it’s not just about fitness training, but seeing the whole person and how everything is connected."

MICHAEL GEYER


TRANS ALPIN RACER | MUNICH

"Honestly, I cannot recommend just one single thing, but the whole package and the obvious fact that GM Trainings are competent people. It is a matter of fact that my training routines are completely different from those of my competitors. Gerhard Maier leaves literally nothing to chance. My performance level increased dramatically in every aspect as well as my general state of health. The results are monitored and questioned on a regular basis by these experts."

MICHAEL MÄRZ


TECHNICAL SUPPORT CONSULTANT | FRANKFURT

"When Gerhard Maier was recommended to me, my main reason for booking him was his expert knowledge. At that point of time I wasn’t aware of all the other things I would learn from him. Now everything makes sense to me as a whole connected thing. In general, I don’t quickly feel comfortable with new people. But, from the beginning, Gerhard showed a keen interest and has received my trust. I have benefited from his programs physically and mentally."

SONJA DECKER


TRAINEE

"Hello Gerhard, thank you for the wonderful training sessions. I have really learned a lot, not just technically, but also a lot for myself personally. You showed me a totally different attitude towards work. Now I see everything more positively and am able to see things from different perspectives. Thank you very much for everything! Kind regards, Sonja."

SEBASTIAN PHILIPP


MUSICAL SCHOOL OWNER

"I own and operate my own music school and I am the director of my own show ‘Back2Harlem’. Throughout the year, I play concerts on the road and also run my music school. Before the personal training with Gerhard, I suffered from back pain and had serious blood circulation disorders in my fingers. These symptoms have completely disappeared. Training with Gerhard helps you become aware of the strengths and weaknesses of your body. With ever-changing training programs and excellent consulting, he helped me reach my desired goals after a surprisingly short period."

YASMIN HIRNICH


Teacher and mother of 3 children

"Over the course of one year, Gerhard developed a training program with seven different phases for me including personal talks about achievements, problems, preferences and habits. My whole family benefits from my increased self esteem and well balance. Now, I can’t imagine life without setting clear goals and starting the process to achieve them anymore."

DENNIS ANTUNOVIC


HAIR STYLIST

"If I had to describe your program with one word, it would be ‘KAIZEN’ which means ‘continual improvement’ in Japanese. You are very good at that. You live your philosophy, and this with a high level of competency."
