"In all of my experiences as a teacher and certified personal trainer, I have learned that to succeed nothing can replace a strong work ethic, vision, dedication and genuine care for the job you do and the people you serve."
|My career in health and fitness began in 1997 with my first job as a basketball coach. In the years that followed some of my most gratifying experiences came while working for several elementary schools and government teen programs. I coached team sports, advanced athletic techniques and overall fitness and conditioning to children ages 5 to 16. I later became the physical education teacher at Frederick Banting Elementary School where, for three years, I used sports and exercise as a vehicle to teach children important life lessons, namely "you get out of life what you put into it."
In 2002, upon receiving my training certification, I began to specialize in Individual conditioning and was hired by a prestigious gym in Montreal. Motivated to now help, teach and instruct adults of all levels, success came early as I immediately connected with members and became the most sought after trainer, working early morning to late evenings before eventually leaving to start my own business.
As a health and fitness professional, I continue to learn each day in order to provide my clients with the best instruction and expertise needed to succeed. My secret is not to follow just one specific method of training or to get hooked on current trends. Instead, I draw from a broad base of knowledge to apply a rich variety of the most proven training techniques, giving each client a completely customized workout. Adding variety and proper balance to our sessions is key for achieving amazing results.
Over the past decade I have worked with a wide range of the population, from children to senior citizens, weekend warriors to professional athletes, and I have achieved success at every level. I am very proud of the life-long relationships I have built with many of my clients, and to see them continue to succeed over the years is extremely gratifying. Exercise and a healthy lifestyle enriches lives in countless ways and so it is with great pleasure, sense of responsibilty and dedication that I present MarkitoFitness to the community.

Later, I focused my studies toward the law enforcement field and completed my degree as well as my police school training. In order to pass the physical requirement tests I had to go through a specific training regiment. Like many people, I joined a local gym and followed a program to build my strength and endurance. However, after attaining my goal to pass the physical requirement tests and start my new career, the gym wasn’t giving me anything new and exciting. I was no longer progressing, my body was starting to hurt and I felt like I had hit a plateau. I dropped the gym and started looking for something that would give me better results and improve my energy levels.
In 2008, two years into my career as a police officer, I met Marc who gave me a totally different perspective on training; I immediately saw something different and unique. He worked on my weaknesses and got me stronger in order to make my everyday life pain free. Simply put, I achieved results like never before. In addition, I witnessed first hand the passion and work ethic that Marc brings to his clients, utilizing advanced training concepts to develop customized solutions for every individual. In all my years of training and competing I had never seen anything like it. I made up my mind that I wanted to be a part of it.
I began to study with Marc and received my certification as a personal trainer specialist. Bringing my experience in martial arts and police training, I am happy to be part of the MarkitoFitness team and look forward to working with you.
"As a certified personal trainer, martial artist and former police officer, I look forward to getting you in shape!"
