Please check the next slot available for the Program on my profile!

I can consider applications for the GYM Program only if you target at least three consulting companies. That's because with the GYM, I guarantee you will get an offer; otherwise, I will coach you for free until you get one (please read below for more info). Please don't apply to join the GYM if you are targeting fewer than three firms.

This package comes with a 100% FREE UNLIMITED coaching guarantee until you get an offer. Yes, you read it right: unlimited ;) Please check the details below if you are interested.

  • Sessions are NOT time-constrained - we will go on until covered all the topics of the class and answered all your questions.
  • If you have any questions please drop me a message, I provide guaranteed responses in 12h, regardless of your time zone.
  • If you want to “test” the program: you can book a single class first at the standard rate, I can then let you upgrade to it deducting the first session if I have slots available.
  • I have limited GYM slots per month. Please drop me a message with (i) your CV/LinkedIn profile and (ii) the companies you are targeting before booking so that I can check if the timeline works and if the program is a good fit for you.
  • I will have to cancel invitations if you book without notice and I don't have availability or there is no good match with your profile.

Master the skills to get a top consulting offer from the #1 coach for sessions & make your dream job come true

  • Do you want to land an offer from McKinsey, BCG, Bain, or any other top consulting company?
  • Do you have limited time and want to work on proven techniques without wasting days of prep on outdated material?
  • Do you want to get access to the previous questions asked in your target office in advance?
  • Have you read the standard books and methods, and you still didn’t manage to get offers?
  • Do you want to know the exact reasons why only 1% of the candidates get an offer from top consulting companies?

 

Are you looking for a program that:

  • Shares the ultimate way to structure any question you may get in a case interview?
  • Reveals the must-know answers to fit questions that only insiders learned?
  • Shows you the real mistakes you could make and the exact way to fix them?

 

After 4.000+ sessions, 10 certified years of coaching (you can check the 1st review date) and hundreds of people landing into MBB, I am ready to offer you the ultimate program to achieve all of this and more – the GYM Program. You will discover the secrets to master every step of the interview process.

The GYM - Getting You into Management consulting - covers everything you need to land the consulting offer you want.

Like a great fitness coach, it will offer you the right material and a step-by-step plan so that you can get the greatest benefit on the time spent preparing and land the maximum results out of your effort.

You won’t just get a bundle of 5 sessions. I will share with you my contacts and you can write to me at any time if you have any questions, free of charge (I will reply within 12 hours via chat). If you join the program, we are in this together. We won’t stop until you get the offer you want.

Is this the right Program for me?

This program is for you if you are targeting one of the following companies: McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Strategy&, Kearney, Monitor Deloitte, ZS Associates, Simon-Kucher, FTI Delta, ADL, EY-Parthenon, KPMG, Dalberg, IQVIA, Accenture Strategy, Booz Allen, Alvarez & Marsal and LEK.

This program is not for you if you are targeting other companies. I only coach candidates targeting companies I helped to secure offers from. I want you to be totally sure the results are there.

Unlike any other coach, with the GYM I offer a FREE coaching guarantee if you are not successful after the GYM, until you get an offer (you can check the details below). You can find 1.500+ certified 5-star reviews that confirm that on my profile here.

This is NOT a program that works for one single company only. You will be able to leverage what we will cover in ALL your interviews, regardless of whether it is McKinsey, BCG, Bain, or any other.

Whether you are an undergrad, MBA, PhD or experienced hire, if you have an interview with MBB or any of the companies above, the GYM will offer you the best possible preparation in the market today.

It works for every experience level - whether you have done 2 or 200+ cases, you can be sure to find value in the GYM program.

During the sessions, you will receive for FREE the following course material:

  • 59 most common fit questions in consulting interviews (including those for experienced hires no one really knows about)
  • 25 business cases and 12 market sizing questions to create drills for any possible situation
  • 9 structures to instantly crack 90%+ of business cases (plus the tools to structure the remaining 10%)
  • 4 structures to instantly crack 90%+ of market sizing cases (plus the tools to structure the remaining 10%)
  • 5 written feedbacks of the sessions, with your mistakes and the specific steps to avoid them

I will send you homework after each class and expect you to do them (if you don't want to do homework and want just to attend sessions, please don't book the program - I work hard as your coach but I need that you work hard as well). 

Before the first class, you will also get exclusive access to my 391-page case interview book - not available anywhere else.

And here is what we will cover in detail:

SESSION 1:

Full Mock Interview - PEI/Fit + Case

Would you like to fix immediately 50% of all your current mistakes?

That’s exactly what we are going to cover in our first class, together with:

  • The 2 mistakes 80% of people do at the beginning of the case
  • The #1 trick to make your structure always fit the case
  • The 3 key steps to approach any graph
  • Why getting the right results in the math section is not enough
  • 20-point score card showing how far you are from a pass for 1st and Final Round

…and much more.

After that, I will send you my Homework #1 on structuring and we will move to…

SESSION 2:

Case Structuring - Part 1

Do you feel you don't know how to structure operations or public sector cases? You are not alone. Many candidates struggle with that.

That’s because the "usual books" don't work for these cases.

In this session, we will cover that and practice on at least 3 mini-cases based on the homework I sent you (reflecting a variation of all the possible types of cases you may get in an interview). Plus, we will see:

  • The right way to open any case (and why most candidates mess up before even presenting a structure)
  • The 3 most common mistakes candidates make in communication​​
  • Selection of real questions asked at your target office​

The types of cases that we will cover will depend on your performance with the homework, so this section will be fully personalized (we will see how to structure any possible case variation anyway between this session and Session #3).

Next, we will move to...

SESSION 3:

Case Structuring - Part 2

"Should I buy a Chihuahua or a Dobermann?"

This is a variation of a real question asked in a McKinsey interview.

Do you know how to structure this?

If not, this session is for you. We will cover:

  • How to create structures for any possible case​
  • How to answer any brainstorming question DURING the case​
  • Fine-tuning on your communication

The types of cases will depend on your performance with Homework #2.

Once completed the session, you will know how to instantly crack 90%+ of all the possible business cases, and easily build structures for the other 10% variations.

And then we will move to...

SESSION 4:

Market Sizing (or PEI for McK Candidates)

Do you get stuck if you get a question like "How long did it take to build the Great Wall of China?"

What about "I am the Roman emperor and you are my general. How many soldiers do I need to conquer Great Britain?"

I got these questions myself in my interviews. It was fun (sort of…).

We will base the session on your performance on Homework #3.

In this session we will see how to structure that and more:

  • The 4 main types of market sizing you won’t find in any other book or guide
  • The way to justify any number in an estimation​
  • How to impress the interviewer AFTER you have finished your estimation question​

Once you complete the session, you will know how to instantly crack 90%+ of all the possible market sizing questions and have the tools to crack the other 10% as well.

(For McKinsey candidates: we can cover PEI here instead of market sizing).

And finally...

SESSION 5:

Full Mock Interview - PEI/Fit + Case

In the last session we will cover a full case applying the knowledge of the previous 4 sessions, working either on:

  • A qualitative case + Complex market sizing, or
  • A quantitative case
  • If applicable: review of real questions of your target office (I have a database of 1.500+ real questions asked)

This will be a final round format, thus with more fit focus and pressure.

After this class, if you have done the homework I sent you (please don't skip them), I guarantee you will have the best possible preparation that any 5-session program could deliver to you.

And when I say “guarantee” I mean it (read below!).

Tailoring the program to you

I structured the 5 sessions of the GYM so that you can maximize your performance in case interviews. However, the program is flexible and can be personalized in case you want to cover other areas - for example if you want a full session on the PEI (which we can cover anyway in sessions 1 and 5).

Say you are interested in any of the following:

  • Specific PEI/fit questions
  • CV and Cover Letter review
  • MBB referrals
  • Unusual cases
  • Additional mocks

We can then change one of the 5 sessions with that. You can review ‘THE GYM PROGRAM PLUS’ section on my profile here or PM me for a full list of the options.

My “YOU GOTTA BE CRAZY” guarantee

Ah yes, and one more thing:

“If you have invitations for case interviews and don't get any offer within 6 months from the last class of the program, I will personally continue to coach you for FREE after that term (one session per month + unlimited support via Skype/WhatsApp/Email) until you get a consulting offer.”

And yes, this means you will get real LIFETIME coaching support until you reach your goal. Not just support emails. Not just WhatsApp chats. Proper real coaching.

If you are thinking “How the hell can you offer this crazy guarantee?”, it is pretty simple.

The GYM works.

And given my success rate is real, I know you will get into consulting after the 5 sessions.

That’s why I can offer this, and all the other coaches can’t

 

This is the only package in the market today with hundreds of verified success stories and UNLIMITED coaching until you reach your goal.

Yes, you pay more. But you can't lose:

  • Best case: you get the offer you want.
  • Worst case: you tell me you didn’t get the offer and I will support you for FREE until you get it.

Both options are risk-free. You have NOTHING to lose and EVERYTHING to gain by joining the GYM program.

The only thing guaranteed not to help you is NOT taking the GYM offer today.

Important to know:

I can only manage a limited number of GYM Programs per month, therefore I have to confirm the availability of the program in advance for your desired period and that we are a good fit.

Please PM me with (i) your CV/LinkedIn profile and (ii) companies you are targeting to check that. I will have to cancel invitations if you book without notice and I don't have availability or there is no good match with your profile.

If you are interested in more sessions, I also offer 1 only GYM Program Plus per month with 10 sessions at 48% discount. Please check my profile description or PM me to check if it is still available for the month you are interested in.

We can do the sessions in English. O se preferisci in Italiano. O también podemos hacer clases en español, como prefieres.

Feel free to contact me for any additional questions, I guarantee a reply in 12h. 

Any Open Questions Left? Check Out Our FAQ

How can I enroll in the program?

Please drop me a message with (i) your CV/LinkedIn profile and (ii) the companies you are targeting before booking so that I can check if the timeline works and if the program is a good fit for you.

How long does the program last?

If possible, I would recommend at least 2-3 weeks. I have completed the GYM successfully in less time, but it is not ideal.

Are sessions 1 on 1 or group sessions?

Sessions are all 1 on 1.

I would need a session last minute - is that possible?

Please check the first available date at the beginning of the GYM description, I cannot organize sessions before that. I will have to cancel invitations if you book without notice and I don't have availability.

I don't have invitations yet and need help with referrals, CV and Cover - would the GYM still make sense?

Yes. We can tweak the program and add the session on CV, Cover and referrals, which includes everything you need to know to get an invitation.

Can I book in installments?

Yes, you can book a single session first and we can deduct that from the rest of the GYM. Please note I cannot unlock the bonus material until the program has been fully booked.

How can I prepare before the first class?

Before session 1 I will ask to read the draft of the case interview book I will publish soon, which will work as a good intro before the session. I would also recommend to do/read at least 5 cases before the first session (you can find 5 cases at the end of my book).

What is the difference between the GYM and GYM Plus?

The GYM includes 5 sessions and the rate is $3.499 while the GYM Plus 10 sessions at $5.799.

What is the recommended time between sessions?

The minimum would be the time to do the homework I will send you – so most likely a few days between sessions. If possible I would recommend more time to absorb the material better, in particular after session 3 when I will unlock for you the p2p platform with other GYM members.

Please note that I am usually booked at least 1 week in advance, so most likely session 2 will be the following week. 

I would recommend session 5 a few days before the interview. We can review the exact timeline during the first class.

I have other questions - what should I do?

Please drop me a message, I will reply within 12 hours.

I have recently completed the GYM PLUS programme with Francesco, and I have to say that it was TRANSFORMATIVE and WORTH EVERY PENNY. Before reaching out to Francesco, I had already done extensive preparation (~50 live cases as the interviewee, online courses, etc.) but my weaknesses were many: I still struggled at properly structuring my approach for certain case types and navigating the case, my fit performance left a lot to be desired, and I suffered from interview nerves. I ultimately got rejected in the second round with a boutique. My sessions with Francesco were absolutely amazing for the following reasons:

(1) Francesco's 2 'structuring' sessions and the 'unusual cases' session completely transformed the way I think about problems. Now, cases become extremely clear and intuitive for me (no matter how complex they may initially seem)

(2) The mock sessions are specifically tailored to highlight any weaknesses you have and to completely clean out your mistakes. Francesco ends every session by sending you a 2-3 page word doc detailing everything you did right and wrong in the case, and his feedback extends to all facets of your performance, including your verbal and non-verbal communication. The first mock highlights most of your mistakes, but subsequent sessions are still incredibly valuable as Francesco expertly pick cases with twists and nuances so you will still have a lot to learn.

(3) Francesco's market sizing session is unlike anything I have seen. I had previously thought that market sizing was my greatest strength, but Francesco taught me a more rigorous way of approaching such questions. This new way of thinking about market sizing problems will undoubtedly be very useful in final rounds where cases become more unstructured.

(4) Having done 3,200 sessions on PrepLounge, Francesco has likely heard thousands of stories and know how best to tidy up your fit answers. I had 2 fit sessions with Francesco, one focused on PEI-type questions and another focused on 'motivational' and 'ice breaker' questions. During the PEI session, Francesco helped me restructure several of my stories while polishing up the others. They are now much more intriguing then they ever were.

(5) Francesco goes above and beyond to make sure you succeed in your goal. His sessions regularly go above the 1-hour mark to make sure that he gives you detailed feedback and answer all your questions. He is also always available outside of sessions to answer any questions you may have, and to provide you with any additional materials you may need (be it practice tests or questions from your target office).

Overall, sessions with Francesco are absolutely worth it, and he will maximise your chances of getting an offer at your dream firm. I have upcoming interviews with one of the MBB and I am now very confident that I will make it through.

UPDATE: Got offers from McKinsey and BCG in North America!

If you'd like more information about the GYM program from the perspective of someone who took it, feel free to contact me at milanese@mit.edu.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I would highly recommend the GYM program. I found it a very comprehensive and thorough training program. Comparing to other coaches, I think Francesco is able to give very specific, very actionable feedback. There were several suggestions that changed my perspective on how to tackle some parts of cases or fit part of the interview.
The program is also highly customizable and easy to extend if you want to do a little more (I did for example an extra session on "Unusual Cases").

I will say this upfront so people short on time can see this right away: the GYM program is absolutely amazing. I successfully received an offer from McKinsey's Greater China Office, and I attribute a large part of my current success to my sessions with Francesco.
My candidate profile might not be a typical one—if there can really such a thing as a typical candidate profile in consulting. What I mean is that I am an English major with very little training in business or anything else adjacent. My communication is decent, but everything else I basically had to start from scratch.
Francesco was very patient with me during our sessions, carefully explaining his structures but also the underlying logic behind them so I can customize if need be. To enhance my business skills and knowledge in general, he helpfully provided cheat sheets that he made himself. The one I found most valuable for me was the industry overview one where he basically went over 20+ industries in one ppt. When it came to cases, Francesco’s structures are unique as they are robust. They are truly nothing like the ones you can find on the internet, nor like the ones you find in Cheng or Consentino or the bschool casebooks. In the first-round interview, they helped me catch something very minute that I would’ve most definitely missed otherwise.
Another aspect of his sessions I found truly indispensable is the grading system that he uses to grade case performance. I believe people who are considering this program right now all know about just how good a quantifiable result is ?, and this is something Francesco offers, with different areas of breakdown for things like structuring, communication, math etc. I would highly recommend going through this rubric with him at the end of every single session, as it personally helped me pinpoint where my weaknesses were, and exactly what I had to do to fix them.
I recommend GYM wholeheartedly without reserve. I was lucky to have Francesco in my corner during my interview prep, and I think his services would benefit anyone who is looking to up their chances significantly with their interviews.
