Are you ready to change your life?
My name is Marques Garcia. Thank you for visiting my page. I have been a fitness coach and a personal trainer for over 20 years. I love what I do as a fitness professional. Throughout the years, I have trained and coached numerous individuals achieve their best, whether to improve their overall health and fitness levels or assist them to accomplish a sport or athletic goal. I specialize in sports specific training, especially endurance sports, triathlons, and all ball sports. I am passionate about running, cycling, swimming, triathlons, and all endurance sports. I work with triathletes of all levels, from Ironman to sprint distance, and I love to compete in trail running.
My background in sports science and familiarity with kinesiology and anatomy gives me an insight of how the body should move and function. As an athlete, I am also familiar with sports specific strength training. I am also adept at many types of injuries and how to work around them and/or strengthen the areas affected by them. I am also passionate about expanding my knowledge and continuously search for the best methods to enhance my clients’ experience and speed up their results.
My philosophy in Personal Training is to use all planes of motion to strengthen the body by incorporating muscle groups instead of focusing on training on machines ! Our human bodies are made to move in three planes of motion. I tend to use every joint and body part and create resistance to strengthen those parts involved, and by doing so; you get a stronger, leaner, fitter you! I tend to shun heavy machines and big weights. My focus revolves mainly on using small apparatus, such as BOSU, Medicine, and Swiss balls, Thera bands, dumbbells, and calisthenics/plyometric exercises to elevate your fitness level. Core strength and stabilization is the cornerstone of my fitness training methods, and I tend to mix and change workout for each client in order to avoid plateau. I keep myself in the best shape possible. I lead by example.
