How often do you examine exercise as an empowering tool to enrich the quality of your life?

That’s my essential question as a coach.  My purpose is to help you learn the essentials of living a fit and healthy life, and take ownership of those variables to focus on what’s really important: Living the best version of life possible.

Harold Gibbons believes in you.  I believe in you! My purpose as a coach is share opportunities to create the best life possible.  That mindset has led me from the physical education classroom to Mark Fisher Fitness, where exercise has been elevated as an empowering tool to enrich the quality of our lives.Screen Shot 2013-04-27 at 11.06.12 PM

As a strength coach and the program design manager at MFF, I’ve had experience creating personalized exercise programs and group training classes for over 800 of New York City’s most ridiculous humans.  This unique experience has lead to a nuanced understanding of how we blend progressive exercise strategies and contemporary coaching concepts to create the most empowering experience for clients of all ages and ability levels.

That sounds pretty deep, right?


When I’m not striving to change the lives of the Ninjas at MFF, you can find me working to progress the fitness industry as an educator, as well as coaching clients interested in meaningful, lasting results.

I’ve gotten myself into the nasty habits of mountain biking, rock climbing, and drinking copious amounts of coffee, and to relax, I enjoy holding my fiance’s hand, and sampling whatever is on draft.



Train With Harold

As a coach, I examine exercise as a powerful tool to empower my clients to live a physically active lifestyle. Together, we explore exercise through the lens of positive psychology, discuss self-efficacy, and apply progressive sports psychology to movement­-based exercise.

These strategies rapidly improve participation and performance to create habits of lifelong physical activity.  My goal as a coach is to pass my skills on to you and essentially coach myself out of a job.  This is to help you focus on what’s really important: Living your best life.

We’ll focus on driving long-term success by creating a habit-driven plan together.  Your personal experiences, health background, and personal preferences lead to action steps and a personal plan designed to optimize your success.
