"Projectmybody" was born from the desire to help people project themselves forward and to inspire body movement whether it is to feel better or more energetic, to get fitter or improve core and posture, to enhance a specific sport performance or begin a safe exercise routine in order to recover from an injury or a surgery.
We believe mental focus, accuracy of movement and precision are core skills needed in order to achieve optimal mental and physical results; our mission as conditioning coaches and exercise specialists is to help our clients master these skills so they can reach their health and fitness goals and enjoy their training in the process of it.
Massimo De Micco
Holistic Coach - Personal Trainer
Low Back Exercise Specialist
Having suffered from repeated bouts of severe lower back pain for a number of years due to disc injuries, I decided that I needed to find a way to stop this pain from recurring: Massimo was recommended to me as a personal trainer specialising in this area.
I have now been training with him for a little over 6 months and I’m truly amazed at the positive changes that he has helped me achieve during this relatively short time. Massimo has identified the key areas of my core that are imbalanced and that need strengthening – and he then has taken me though a layered programme of exercises to build up my core strength. All through the process, he has explained why we are doing particular exercises and has listened closely to my feedback to tailor and fine tune the work that I do.
The result is that I now feel stronger and more confident in leading an active lifestyle without the constant worry of my back issues returning: I’ve been pain free since my first training session. Massimo is not just a great trainer but he’s also a very approachable and amicable guy. I’d have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
Doug ( CTO, a leading Travel Company )
I have trained with Massimo for the last 8 years because he is, quite simply a first class trainer. Like many city workers who are always pushed for time I train once a week (hard!) and I maintain a size 10 shape and am fitter than I have ever been. He instinctively knows when to test my strength and equally knows when I reach my endurance limit. No workout is ever the same so I never become complacent and it is always a challenge. He is great company, a superb motivator and I always leave mentally and physically energised even if I have had an exhausting day and am in no mood to work out.
Massimo’s passion, interest and commitment to physical fitness are self-evident. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He will transform you.
Jane Arnold ( Broker, Oil Company )
I am 31 and work in finance, I play football and I like running. I started training with Massimo over a year ago on a weekly basis following an herniation to my disc and a front dislocation of my left shoulder.
Before starting seeing Massimo I was afflicted by severe chronic back pain and repeated shoulder dislocations, but thanks to the hard work done with him and the routine he has tailored for me, I now run a perfectly normal life, I am much stronger, the pain is gone and the shoulder has been stabilised. Also, in the past I have never been very consistent with my training and Massimo has done great work in keeping me focussed and motivated for over a year now.

"I first heard about Massimo from my girlfriend. She had been training with him for two years and praised inventiveness of his exercise routines and his expertise and was still so enthusiastic about her work-outs that i finally decided to try him myself.
Despite being relatively sceptical (after my previous experiences with personal trainers), i was very quickly won over by his simple and sound ideas as to which exercises must be prioritised to counteract the results of a largely sedentary life style of an office worker - which worked small miracles for me! After just 3 months of exercising with him i felt much stronger and had slashed about 6 minutes of my 10k run time, and this just as a by-product, without really concentrating on the actual running at all.
Now i never leave for a run without activating my glutes, or have a workout without holding a plank! And by the bye, my girlfriend became my wife, and she continued training with Massimo until week 35 of her pregnancy. Cannot recommend him highly enough!"
G. Kucerov (Investment Banker)
I have worked with Massimo for the past 3 years, and began training with him as a result of a chronic back problem. The work that we have done together has made a very significant difference to the health of my back, and Massimo’s expertise has been invaluable.
Malcolm ( Lawyer )
Massimo has been training me for over 3 years now and I can highly recommend him to anyone. I have noticed significant improvements in my all round fitness and strength over this period of time and this is completely down to the Personal Training work done with him.
Massimo is patient, understanding and a great motivator; he makes working out fun and enjoyable. More importantly he is an expert in what he does and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants to improve their fitness and general health.
Danny Done ( Managing Director Leading City Based Recruitment Company)
I am an experienced runner with 9 marathons under my belt. During the last few years I have taken up Personal Training, tennis, golf and cycling to add more variety and fun to my fitness regime.
I first saw Massimo in January 2009 and have had a PT session with him for most weeks since. In addition to having a deep understanding of my personal fitness requirements he provides great variety to my training programme and has a fantastic attitude. He has become an important part of my busy working week.
Steve Kemp ( MD, Emperor Design Consultants )
I have participated in sport all my life and used to be a very active rower until my mid twenties. After that I started running and completed a number of marathons and half marathons. I have had two injuries requiring operations (knee and lower back) and finally realised the enormous benefit of personal training post my back operation – I wish I had used Massimo a decade ago!
Massimo has taught me a whole range of core strength exercises, all very simple and using minimal equipment yet very effective – he has made a real difference to me and has made me realise that I should have been doing this for years!
Massimo is very efficient, he takes time to understand his client’s needs, designs a specific programme, and provides encouragement and motivation to stick to the programme.
David Shalders (Investment Banking at RBS)
Training with Massimo has massively improved my chronic lower back pain within a short time. Massimo is technically prepared, passionate about his job, very personable and good at motivating people. I could not recommend him more, I’ve been training with him for 9 months and will continue to do in the future.
