Want to hear a dirty, little secret?
Fitness is hard.
No one wants to tell you that. Most fitness programs and products stress easy, fast, unrealistic results.
Here's the good news: Although reaching your fitness goals may not be easy, it is possible.
YOU NEED THE RIGHT PERSON TO TELL YOU THE RIGHT THINGS TO DO IN THE RIGHT WAY.

YOU WANT RESULTS? NO PROBLEM!
"I had torn my labrum (band around the hip) a few years ago and after two rounds of torturous physical therapy, I didn't want to do further damage. However, I needed to strengthen that area. I also just wanted to do better in the gym. Michael gets the best out of me with gentle and firm guidance and a great approach; only positive reinforcement and even some huge laughs! I look forward to my sessions—which is not something I thought I'd ever say. I've dropped three dress sizes and have all the strength and energy to get on with a busy life, pain-free and camera-friendly. I'm thrilled with my continued progress and results. I cannot recommend training with him enough!"
“I’m still not quite sure if finding Michael Buckley was pure, unadulterated luck or merely a gift from above, but I assure you, he is the best. He is rich in knowledge, comforting to those who are afraid or need a slow pace in the beginning and one of the kindest men I’ve ever met. Plus, he’s absolutely beautiful!”
“I met with Michael for a free consultation and decided to give it a try for a while to see if 1) I was committed enough to adopt a serious routine of regular exercise and 2) if I liked or would "click" with Michael. Just to give you a bit of background, I'm a 52-year-old relatively lazy woman who at the time had not an ounce of muscle. I wanted to become stronger, toned and in better overall physical health. It's 3 1/2 months later and I'm totally hooked on Michaels workout regiment! Through creative, comprehensive and rarely boring exercises, I have become stronger and much more lithe! Michael is incredibly focused and patient, even during my periodic whining when exercises become really tough. He's the quintessential professional, always on time for our sessions and always pleasant and attentive throughout the entire hour. Michael has developed a very engaging workout program, which is easy to follow yet always physically challenging. Since working out with Michael twice a week for several months, my husband says I look great (he's super-biased) and I know I feel much more energized and a ton healthier! So, if you're a kinda lazy person like me who wants to finally get into great shape while really enjoying the excersise experience, I highly recommend Buckley Body Solutions!”
“Working with Michael was totally life-changing! His awesomeness goes way beyond being a great trainer - he is so knowledgeable about the human body and the latest scientific research. I felt like I could ask him any question about diet or exercise and he always had an answer! I feel so lucky that I found him!”
“Michael is as good as it gets! I'm so very much NOT an exerciser, but with Michael's encouragement, I completed his week-long boot camp. Seriously, I became *that girl* who was getting up at 7am every day to work out. I even posted a workout pic on Instagram. I know. But that's how much of an effect he had on me. He is knowledgeable, funny (even at 7am), and most importantly to me, compassionate. He truly gets the mental blocks that can stop some people from exercising, and he helped me to overcome those. I can honestly say that the mental and psychological benefits I got from training with him were possibly even better than the physical ones (and the physical ones were good!) I highly recommend him, and when I become rich and famous, I will hire him for all-the-time training.”
“I've been working with Michael at Buckley Body Solutions for about 2 years now and love every bit of it. As an avid runner and Bikram yogi, I can tell you his workouts are so complementary to your old routine. You might even give up your old routine entirely. Your body gets so used to your old routine, but not with Michael. Especially if he starts to incorporate affordable meal / eating plans into the mix for you—that's when the magic starts to happen. To say 3-5 hours with Michael per week is worth it, would be an incredible understatement.”
“This man is such an amazing trainer/teacher/talent! Kind, attentive, creative... and kinda hilarious! From working with my insane schedule to writing a customized meal plan for me, Mikey is in a league of his own! I've had several trainers before, and this one made me want to work harder and become better. Thanks, Michael Buckley!”
“I had never worked with a trainer before, I guess I was nervous and found it intimidating. NOT SO with Buckley Body Solutions. Michael is an awesome trainer. He really knows whats up- constantly reiterates the use of proper form, corrects you when need be to avoid injuries- and best of all always switches up the routine for maximum results and to keep your sanity! He really is the best and I highly recommend him as a trainer!”
“I started working with Michael Buckley because I was experiencing lower back pain. But, instead of going to a chiropractor who would likely give me temporary relief, Michael Buckley said he could help alleviate the discomfort, and get me fit. After three sessions my back pain was essentially gone. He taught me exercises that I can do on my own and I'm feeling fitter than ever. His focus is on strengthening the core, which as he will tell you, makes everything else stronger. I’m seeing the results—be it my biceps, posture or way of working out. Michael buckley has completely changed the way I view physical training and fitness. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!”
“I am 36 years old and have been working out in various gyms for ten years now. I have always had motivation to get my butt to the gym and to eat healthy but about a year ago I found myself at a standstill. I had to take my workouts to the next level and that meant a trainer. I had started looking around my gym at the trainers to see who I would like to work with and sadly I was not impressed with any of them. I began looking into other gym options when I saw Michael at my gym training someone. I had not seen him at that gym previously but knew right away that this would work. We began working together ten months ago and I can honestly say that he has changed my body. More importantly, he has changed my approach to working out. Even when I go to the gym on my own I use what he had taught me and my workouts are more productive and focused on what I am looking to achieve. Michael is a personable trainer who listens to what you are trying to achieve and he makes it happen.”
“I've worked with a couple of other trainers before in NYC- but rarely were they as knowledgeable, passionate and as kind as Michael Buckley. Kind? You might ask. Yes, kind. Look, I'm not one of those people who enjoys getting yelled at or being told I'm weak. He's effective at what he does, he explains what works, and when it really sucks, he continues to push you. He says things like "I'm sorry, I know it sucks." A trainer with empathy? Yes. And when I was injured (from work) he had great variations on exercises so I could still benefit from a full workout.”
