About Maik Wiedenbach

A two time World Cup and Olympic-level swimmer in Germany, Maik Wiedenbach arrived in the US on a swimming scholarship at Fordham University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor in History, having already received an equivalent degree in German Literature from Germany.

After obtaining his NASM, BSA, and AFPA certifications, Maik founded Adler Training and successfully turned it into one of the most sought-after training and nutritional services in Manhattan, serving clients in top tier facilities.

His system targeting corporate travelers, professionals with time constraints, and clients based out of New York is specifically tailored for "on-the-go" people and those who need to maximize their returns in today's world of frequent travel, long work hours and high stress occupations.

101 Fitness Myths

101 Fitness MythsBook Description:

101 Fitness Myths is NOT another "6 minutes abs" or "drop 14 lbs in 30 days" book, nor does it follow the latest fitness fad but a unique fitness book for novices-whether they're new to the gym or have been working out religiously for years and are frustrated by lack of results.

This book is about individual empowerment. You don't need an expensive personal trainer or fancy machines, just dedication, basic equipment, and the solid scientifically based information in this book.

The book tackles such common fitness myths as:

  • Weight training to get big, cardio to get lean?
  • Are there cutting exercises? Bulking exercises? Do high reps burn more fat?
  • Do women need different exercises than men?
  • Which supplements fights cellulite?
  • Are there any any supplements worth buying?
  • What is the best exercise for the abs? Hint: It is not the crunch

Manhattan and East Hampton-based executive personal trainer and fitness model Maik Wiedenbach draws on the latest medical research to debunk popular fitness myths and get to what works and what doesn't. He arms readers with the knowledge to find the exercises and nutrition plan that work for them to achieve a beach body they can be proud of-something, Wiedenbach insists, anyone can achieve if they're willing to put in the effort. Maik has been a successful professional athlete for years and has coached many into the best shape of their lives.

30 Secrets For Bigger Arms

Bigger ArmsBook Description:

Spark new growth in your arms!

So you arm training has stalled since Bill Clinton left office and Al Gore blew it. Despite blitzing and bombing, super-sets, drop sets and trying every supplement under the sun, not much has happened in your sleeves?

Fear not, I have compiled 30 ways to make your arms grow again. Just like most of you, I have been blessed with a less than perfect set of arms, so it took me years and years (and thousands of dollars, wasted on questionable supplements and books) to find out what works to make them grow.

This not a book to give you another “super hardcore biceps routine”, but it will educate you all around in regards to training, diet and recovery.

With that being said, this book is for anyone who wants to improve their arms, make them bigger, leaner, whatever the case may be.

I've watched Maik training people in the gym. He's always focused on the client he's with at the time and delivers more changes to their bodies than any other trainer I've seen. I didn't know about his education in Literature and History, but it makes sense. He's soft spoken and articulate; not qualities found very often in most trainers. I'm happy that this talented man has put his knowledge into a web-site. It should provide a lot of good 'sneak reading' when I should be working!
