McKay mixes up the different routines and exercises so it never gets boring. He's also great at working around your schedule, so you'll never have an excuse to skip out on a session. But most of all, he's great at getting to know your strengths and weaknesses and pushing you to do your best while still keeping the entire experience fun.
