Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Group Exercise Instructor
When you ask him to tell his story, Marco cuts right to the case: "Exercise saved my life." He was never the biggest or fastest kid in school; he was bullied for a long time and affected his self-confidence. As time passed he grew more reserved and eventually depressed. One day he started doing push ups in his room, and then crunches, and bicep curls. By the time he turned 17 he was working out twice a day, and the satisfaction that he felt after finishing a workout was unlike anything else he had ever felt before. Seeing that same satisfaction on his members’ faces after a great workout was what prompted him to open PDX FIT in 2012. Health and fitness isn’t just his job, it’s his life—and helping people live happier, more fulfilled lives is his mission.
