    How it began

    After he got his Master Degree in Sports Science, Psychology and Education, Gerhard Maier founded GM Trainings to develop and execute training solutions for individuals and organizations.

    While simultaneously working with elite athletes and leaders on the one hand and children / teenagers on the other hand, we found out that the principles for continuous improvement are basically the same. Therefore we developed customized analysis and training programs for various target groups as you can see on this website.

    How GM Trainings works

    We cooperate with a huge network of specialists to ensure maximum support for our clients including medical doctors, psychologists, therapists, nutritionists and other experts depending on our clients‘ needs.

    What can we do for you?

    How can we help you or your organization respectively?

    We are specialized in analyzing performance processes and developing solutions to improve and optimize them.

    Therefore we need a written profile (email is sufficient) of who you or your organization and your goals are to decide if we see an opportunity to work for you.

    For the case of a cooperation with us, you would be surprised of what we are willing to do to help our recipients reach their goals.

    Feel free to let us know how you prefer to get in contact with us.

    Background

    ORIGINAL INTENTION

    The original intention was to help professional athletes and other individuals to reach their goals not limited to athletic performance.

    GM TRAININGS TODAY

    Meanwhile, GM Trainings can look back to more than 40,000 single coaching sessions with individuals referring to self-development and the optimization of psychological and physical performance. Additionally, there is a large number of client projects of which you can get a first impression on this website or www.bestoftraining.com.

    Our main areas of expertise from originally professional athletes are now offered exclusively to leaders and children / teenagers.

    OUR PROMISE

    Of course, not all successes are the same. But we can promise you one thing in full confidence: So far, every person or organization we have advised, without exception, has significantly improved in their respective discipline. Improvements include, but are not limited to, increased physical as well as mental performance and optimization of processes in general.
