Marcus’ Barefoot Story

“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of what he is capable.”
Socrates

 

Being a reader of philosophy, this quote is what started it all. My journey into health, fitness and the great outdoors is where it led, whether it was hiking, climbing, running or snowboarding the pursuit of challenging the body and seeing what is was capable of became a new-found obsession.

Having been inspired by my athletic ability, pushing it to new levels and seeing the amazing places it could take me, I made a significant life change back in 2016 and became a Personal Trainer so I could share these experiences with others.

My love for running saw me complete a number of Marathons and Ultra Marathons in my mid 20’s, this love for running now has me finding fulfilment in helping others find the joy in running like I did.

I share my passion of the outdoors with my clients and have shared many adventures, including one experience of hiking the world-famous Overland Track in Tasmania with 6 clients who I now call close friends, an experience as rewarding for me as it was for them.

Having worked under a great mentor at my first gym in South Coogee, I learned the methods of programming, goalsetting and motivation specialising in fat loss. This training and education lead me to developing an extensive list of clients who achieved some amazing results during my time there and I was recognised by winning the 2018 Fat loss challenge’s best trainer.

Looking at my own training and performance holistically I sought to develop an understanding of mindfulness and meditation and its applications to human performance in outdoor specific activities. It is this which has led me to find my new home at Flow Athletic and the amazing team of trainers, instructors and clients who I get to share my passion with every day.
