When I started using Gary’s training programs I won four 125 Nationals in a row and the title.

Dear Mr. Semics,
I would like to thank you for the outstanding instruction you gave my son during the recent May 5th and 6th group class.
Your verbal instruction followed by your professional riding skills was perfect for PJ. At the conclusion of the class he was able to put his newly learned skills to the test at Budds Creek. His starts, turns and new found comfort with jumping allowed him to finish in the top 3 of both the schoolboy and 125B class events.
We just returned from the LL Unadilla area qualifier where he was required to learn the track for the first time and race all in the same weekend. He qualified for both the Schoolboy stock and mod classes.
I am convinced that he would not have been capable of such success without your professional instruction. We look forward to coming back for both individual and group classes in the future.

“I’ve used Gary’s training methods and programs since I first started working with him back in 1996. Since then I have tried some different personal trainers and have always returned to Gary’s programs because I’ve always felt the strongest when I was using them.
I’ve hired Gary as my personal trainer again this year in 2004. Gary’s been there and he knows motocross from the inside out”.
Gary, my son Jake (15) and I really enjoy your videos. We have all of volume 3 and are looking forward to the next video. I am amazed how fast Jake has improved just by watching your videos and practicing the techniques. Jake moved up to a 250 last April and is usually one of the fastest riders at the tracks, thanks to the techniques you teach. Jake is going to try to qualify for Loretta’s in the 250B class this next year. Just wanted to say thanks.
Your website say the next video will be out soon. Is there any way we can preorder the video?
I’m a new user of the Gary Semics motocross training DVD series which I stumbled on one day while searching the internet for training aids. As a 41 year old brand new rider with a 7 year old who loves to ride as much as I do . . . well, suffice to say that Gary’s videos have been incredible. I bought his largest package and have learned so much in a short period of time.
Lastly, tell Gary (I’m assuming you’re related) that the “Goon Riding” was the funniest thing we’ve ever seen – mainly because it reminded my whole family (5 of us) EXACTLY what I looked like when I started riding for the first time this past May – what a grin!! It was priceless – absolutely priceless to see my family and myself laugh as hard as we did!!! Thanks for that.
Lastly, my son loves the Gary Semics T-shirt that came in our package, do you have them in X-Large? If yes, how much are they?
Thanks Cindy! Have a great weekend!!

Hi Gary & Cindy,
Gary – your products are fantastic! I originally purchased a single streaming video to “test” your product. As a firm believer in getting information/instruction from someone who has “fruit on tree”, I wanted to see what you were about – AND YOU DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!
Within days, I returned to your site and purchased the largest package you offered – everything you had at the time (as I remember it) and that’s the subject of my inquiry. Since my purchase of the 2011 Everything Value Pack, you have produced two MUST HAVE videos (must have is my opinion of course) about jumping and scrubbing.
Do you have any discounts for folks like me that have purchased everything you produced at the time of order? I will be completely transparent and tell you that I am going to purchase them even if you don’t, I just thought you might have a discount code for folks that are 100% in with the Gary Semics program.
I will be giving your two newest videos to my son for Christmas.
PS – for what it’s worth, I’m 42 and only started riding 8 months ago. My son (7 yrs old – started riding 8 months ago too) and I are now “dirt bike buddies”! All we do with our free time is watch your videos, learn as much as we can, then take your book to the track to practice (riding only about 3 times a week right now)! We are doing our first race in Southern Utah this month (Dec 29th & 30) and we credit our confidence and desire to your training system.
Thanks again Gary, for reading this email, responding, and for taking the time to produce great videos that help beginners like me become decent riders in a short amount of time.
I look forward to hearing back from you!
I took one of Gary’s two day classes in Ohio 10-12 years ago when I was struggling in the C class. Prior to the class I had invested in all the hop up parts and suspension work I could afford and none of it made one shit bit of difference. Oh when I did case a jump it was smoother and my bike sounded bad ass but the trophies were few to nonexistent. I cannot stress how improved my whole skill set became after those two days. I have a barn full of trophies and one season championship under my belt (now retired from racing) and I really have to thank Gary for running a great program. BTW all that information helped me not only in MX but HS, GNCC, Ice Racing and Flat track.
If I were to do it again I would have gone to several of Gary’s classes when i was younger and only invested in better safety equipment.
BTW I’m not trying to spam Gary’s Schools but just giving you in my opinion the best advice I could to anyone who lines up on a gate.

My oh my what great memories I have hammering out countless hours of Semics drills. My dad was a tight ass & never sent me to his school, even thou we aren’t even 2 hours from his location. I myself was a beginner motocrosser that had only 3 harescramble races under my belt and laps put down on a couple backyard mx tracks.. So needless to say I wasn’t blitzing the whoops, railing berms or throwing fat whips. I was nothing more than a back marker in the 85cc 7-11 class of the local racing scene. I bullshit you not that within that same season I ended up beating kids that were waxing my ass at the start of it . Without a doubt the reason I made such quick improvements was by watching Semics VHS tapes (yes vhs) and religiously performing those drills for hours.. Turn tracks were what helped me the most, they’re the ticket.. I’d recommend any of his dvd’s or tapes.

Hey Gary, Just want to let you know that before I attended your class, i would barely break the top 10 in the Expert class.
This weekend i raced Silver Springs MX and placed a perfect 1st Overall in the 450 Expert class against guys who normally whoop my ass.
Feels so great to actually win. Its been 4 years since I’ve won a moto and I’ve never won the overall in the Expert class since i have turned expert.
Everyone came up to me and I told them your the man to thank, so you might be getting some calls. I put the good word in for you. Hope to keep in touch. Thanks again for everything. Your knowledge and training means the world.
Thanks, Mike Metz
I’ve went from 250 lbs down to 160 lbs with the help of Gary Semics MX Conditioning DVD. I can really tell a big difference with how I feel on the bike. Not only do I not tire out, but the bike handles and performs better with me having the strength to ride it with ease now.
I decided to test my new conditioning out in this years 23rd annual Great Greenbrier River Race. It’s a 17 mile triathlon that consist of a 3 mile run (that I completed with a time of 20min 37s), a 4 mile kayak (completed in 45min 51s), and a 10 mile bike ride (completed in 36min 59s). I crossed the line 44th out of 222 with a overall time of 1hr 43min 27s and thats even after suffering a broken paddle in the kayaking event.
I owe a lot to Gary for teaching me his conditioning and all of his techniques in the sport that I love. Thanks Gary,
Just wanted to let you know I got the disc a couple of weeks ago, thank you again. I just wanted
to add these videos are great. I am a 30 year old beginner and I was pretty much doing everything
wrong, now it makes sense. I will be buying more from you guys again. I love how detailed it is,
and how Gary uses the explanation, demonstration, imitate technique, followed by reviews, very
Gary you rock!
I bought your online version of how to win starts.
I spent a lot of time practicing the techniques you demonstrated in this video and several others I bought from you and it paid off.
I had my first race a couple of weeks ago. I ended up with two holeshots and an overall win!
It was the best money I ever spent.

“This is only my first year working with Gary and already I have shaved seconds off my lap times and can last much longer during motos.
By learning to keep a good mental attitude and focusing on the right training and nutrition my riding has rapidly improved over the past few months.
I’ve been to many different schools around the country but The Gary Semics MX School is by far the best I’ve ever been to!”
