Personal Trainer Overview

The mission of the SMAQ training program is to improve the athlete's ability to move in space by adding explosion and efficiency to their movements.  More specifically,  we attempt to strengthen the muscles used in a particular movement, for a particular sport and as a by-product improve their overall conditioning. 

Training Philosophy

SMAQ Training is a form of interval training that incorporates coordinated movement patterns, plyometrics (jump training), resistance training for strength and stability exercises to help improve functional movement and prevent injuries.

Hi. My name is Malcolm and as a youth I looked forward to practices in the evening no matter the sport. I enjoyed the camaraderie of my teammates, I enjoyed competing but even more than that, I loved getting better... The newness that it brought to my God given abilities and the feeling of preparedness it created gave the confidence to a naturally introverted boy to deal with an unknown future. This passion and drive to get better carried me through my scholastic, collegiate and business careers. With my affinity for basketball, I continued to compete and enjoy the camaraderie of my teammates at Northwestern HS and North Carolina A&T State University. After graduating with a BS in Accounting, I strove to get better by studying and earning the Certified Public Accountant credentials, while pursuing a MS degree in Accounting and Financial Management from the University of Maryland. While leading multi-million dollar projects in Corporate America and realizing entrepreneurial dreams in the Real Estate market, I gained an interest in developing youth athletes, as a way to give back to the community that I have been a part of my entire life. I started volunteer coaching and training athletes with Next Level Elite basketball club in the summber of 1998 and continuing when my own children became of age with the Marlboro Boys & Girls Club. I've taken my passion for developing youth and getting them better to several travel / elite clubs including Bowie Express, Maryland's Finest, Severn Elite, Metro Celtics, DC Heat and St. Anselm's Abbey School. This extensive exposure has created a public demand for SMAQ Training and ultimately SMAQ Fitness to meet the health needs of not only athletes but the general population and promote a world that... MOVES, FEELS, AND GETS BETTER. For the past three years, I have been working as an independent professional trainer. I enjoy every minute of it and the freedom of being my own boss. In addition to being National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Traininer, I hold the Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) credentials, also through NASM. I also hold CPR/AED certification valid through 2015. I'm also most proud of my "Double Goal Coach" certification awarded to those that have learned how to coach to win but more importantly use sports to teach "life lessons".
