Crossfit Level 1

Marc is a masters athlete who still tries to "keep up with the kids". He has a Masters of Architecture degree and has owned his own website development company, Frequency 650, since 2001. His wife Leslie and son Aidan share his love for an active lifestyle, CrossFit and the community at CFJB.

Marc's sport background goes back to 1978 when he started playing soccer. Starting with YMCA to traveling teams, playing in the US on both coasts, Mexico and Japan. In high school he discovered skate boarding and "weight training", then mountain biking in college. It wasn't until the end of soccer that he started racing road bicycles at 35 years old. In 6 years he went from a beginning racer to a category 2, winning a state championship road title in Georgia, a silver in criterium in Georgia and a silver in the time trial in Florida. In 2012, thinking CrossFit would be good winter bike training, it became much more. In 2014 he started coaching, received his level 1 and found his new home at CrossFit Jensen Beach in 2016.

Still with that architect mindset, he understands the big picture but has an eye for details. He's always trying to expand his knowlege and enjoys coaching and sharing what he knows with clients.
