My name is Marques Garcia. Thank you for visiting my studio’s site. I have been a personal trainer for over 20 years. I love what I do as a fitness professional. Throughout the years, I worked with a few fitness centers and organizations, and although it was a good experience for me, it limited my creative side, since most are driven by sales and turn most trainers into sales people. As someone who is driven by passion, I decided that the best thing for me is to create my own space. The Powersource is a cool place for someone who is looking for a good, private, and accessible place to train since it’s located in the heart of Bellevue, and close to Redmond,Kirkland, Issaquah, and Sammamish.
My background in sports science and familiarity with kinesiology and anatomy gives me an insight of how the body should move and function. I am certified by the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) and the NSCA (The National Strength and Conditioning Association). As a former athlete myself, I am also familiar with sports specific training, and and all 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 three dimensional movements against resistance! 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 the types of exercises for each client so you will not get bored, nor will you get cold. I detest resting for long periods between sets, and I cannot stand being a trainer who is out of shape; I lead by example.
My studio is private, meaning unlike a gym or many of the bigger fitness studios in the area, it is not filled with many trainers and during your session, more likely than not you are the only client. There’s enough space for your convenience and I don’t have to fight for space to train you (as many personal trainers have to struggle for space and equipment at gyms). Also, The Powersource is perfectly located in the heart of Bellevue, WA, right off the I405 and The I520. It is also equiped with the best equipment necessary for me to whip you into the best shape of your life!
I have trained many people through the years, but I have included here a few testimonials of current clients who have experienced training with me. It would be an honor and a pleasure to work with you.
