Melvin has been involved in athletics and coaching/teaching his entire life. Playing basketball in college and semi-pro.
Melvin was a great trainer and worked to personalize the workout. Can't express enough how knowledgeable he is with fundamentals! Focusing on accuracy and helping create a plan to meet your goals, Melvin is an excellent Coach. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to truly see an advancement in their sport and reach their potential!
It took Coach Melvin all of about about 2 minutes to come up with an effective plan for the development of my son. Very attentive and knowledgeable about the sport and techniques to improve strength, coordination, economy of movement, etc. Also knows how to motivate and keep the attention of a 10 year old, which is a definite plus. Fantastic Coach. Scheduling future appointments immediately. Would definitely recommend.
Great session with Coach Melvin! At 63 years of age, I was nervous about how he would approach our training session. But I should not have worried. He was very professional, encouraging, and gave me some excellent pointers. As well as things to work on during my own workouts. I would definitely recommend Coach Melvin to anyone who is looking to improve on the court (even if you are a bit "long in the tooth").
