Murat Mazicioglu

World-class runner and trainer

I am a former national champion runner whose achievements include winning the 1989 Olympic Athens Marathon and training multiple Olympic national teams in both Turkey and the US.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Health & Physical Education (Teaching Training), an MBA, and a Master of Science in Health & Physical Education (Health Promotion Programs) from Virginia Tech.

As a professional Personal Trainer, my main passion is guiding people towards a healthier lifestyle. Every body is unique; each with its own strengths and limitations. My method is to build a custom plan based on your shape, size, and fitness goals. My aim is not only to transform your body, but to influence you in making more mindful decisions when it comes to your health.

Why Institute?

Why is this place called an institute?

Because we're focused on results.  When you sign up, we'll collect data about you.  You'll set goals.  Murat will create a program for you.  Periodically, while you're a member of Murat's, additional data will be collected.  So that the world will be able to see that people who sign up to lose weight, lose weight.  People who sign up to reduce pain and restore function achieve less pain and more function. Only aggregate, non-personally identifiable data will be publicly available.
