Mar­cus has always had a fas­ci­na­tion for the human body and it’s abil­ity to move and adapt. His main sport grow­ing up was hockey. How­ever, he had a very late growth spurt and size lim­ited his hockey dreams. He stud­ied health sci­ence at Uni­ver­sity of Water­loo, where he dis­cov­ered his love for phys­i­cal train­ing. He put on mus­cle strength fast and joined Uni­ver­sity Rugby. He found him­self unable to keep up, and found it was caused by his one-​dimensional move­ment train­ing, typ­i­cal of most gym work­outs. He was cre­at­ing dys­func­tions in his body, lead­ing to shoul­der sep­a­ra­tion, ankle sprain and nerve dam­age in his legs.
Through 3 months trav­el­ling in South Amer­ica, he observed that peo­ple who depended on move­ment to sur­vive were liv­ing a lot health­ier than here. Whether it was farm­ing, fish­ing, swim­ming, climb­ing, chop­ping, clean­ing, squat­ting, walk­ing or run­ning, their bod­ies were highly adapt­able and han­dled stress well. Unlike here where most of our stress is han­dled in a seated posi­tion, and the body adapt to han­dle stress in that posi­tion. He would like to teach indi­vid­u­als the body’s nat­ural move­ment pat­terns, to be able to han­dle stress in a highly effi­cient man­ner, using Func­tional Pat­tern train­ing that he learned from his stud­ies with Naudi Aguilar in Seattle.
