GSMXS Student Testimonials

Since 1985 The Gary Semics Motocross School (GSMXS) is proud to have assisted over 500,000 riders in their efforts to “become a better rider”.

Some of our students have gone on to become leaders in the sport of Motocross with 26 AMA Pro Motocross and Supercross Titles among them, others have simply learned how to improve their riding skills and overall enjoyment of Motocross in ways only a professional coach and trainer could provide.

Here are what a few of our students had to say about the benefits of training with The Gary Semics Motocross School, DVDs and Streaming Motocross Technique Videos.

I began Gary’s training and diet program the end of May of 2007 when I weighed 180Lbs. My body fat was 28.7% and my endurance was pretty poor. I would fade out in a moto after 4 or 5 laps and come off the track very tired and worn out. The second motos were[…]

I always enjoy your videos and wish I was closer to attend one of your summer group classes. I feel this is one of your most informative videos. You have most of your key techniques included in a pretty compact amount of time. I think it is very applicable to everyone, not just Vet[…]

Hi Gary, It’s been around 1 year since I received your training videos 1-8 and it was the best decision that I ever made, and well worth the money spent. I like to spend money on my bike to make it better, but the bike is an extension of the rider, so it makes[…]
