“Training with Marcus has in my eyes been one of the prime reasons why I am where i am now in terms of my success in rugby. He focused on 2 key areas, strength and power, each one having specific programmes for me to follow. By increasing my strength (bench increased by 30kg in 6 months) I could hold my own (physically) in higher levels of rugby. By focussing on my power (acceleration in 5-10m areas) it ensured that rather than just ‘holding my own’ I could actually become more of a threat on the pitch.”

“Since being able to work with such a dedicated and knowledgeable S&C coach, the changes he made to my programme have been immeasurable. These are clear from my training and my results. He has set the bar exceedingly high and without his expertise, I highly doubt I would be in such a strong position for the future of my career.

Marcus is an inspirational strength and conditioning coach who works hard to get the best out of his athletes. I have worked with Marcus just over a year and I am really pleased with the results I have achieved in just a short space of time. My fitness levels and strength have increased. I feel more powerful on the rugby pitch than I have ever been and have been able to make my Championship rugby debut for London Scottish RFC.”

“I found that working with Marcus was brilliant, I felt faster, stronger, fitter and more energised after completing his programme. I would definitely work with Marcus again.

Everything during the programme everything went very well, I improved in every aspect of my performance. The service provided was perfect, very detailed and very specific for my sport. I have only positives from the programme and working with Marcus and I am looking forward to working with him again in the future.

“After working with Marcus my strength improved which really helped my basketball performance. I added weights in every exercise I was doing which had a massive impact on my game as I now feel much more confident attacking the lane.

The service provided was perfect, Marcus is always interested in the progress of the program and updating the program regularly. I’d definitely work with Marcus again and recommend others to start working with him ASAP. 10/10 !”

“I started working with Marcus in my first year of university; my novice year of rowing. We started with sessions of flexibility and core strength, he went above and beyond to research the key positions and muscle groups we needed to strengthen for the water work. Over the next two years he worked very closely with me, developing my strength whilst helping maintain lightweight weight (who doesn’t love Wednesday morning fat pinching tests).

Thanks to hard work and support the whole way I can now show up to GB camps and hold my own in the gym! Marcus has been a gruelling trainer, key motivator and a good friend that I couldn’t have achieved half of my goals without.”

Jeff Turner

Aspiring S&C coach

“Marcus successfully mentored me through passing the Plyo, Agility & Speed and Case Study sections of the UKSCA accreditation.

The level of service provided has been excellent and sessions have been enjoyable. Each session has been well structured and met my needs. What I like is the attention to detail and coaching points/feedback and knowledge provided carried out in a fun and relaxed atmosphere with enough challenge to make sure I’m reaching the necessary goals. I would definitely work with Marcus again.

I’ve improved my flexibility and confidence to perform Olympic lifts. In particular the snatch, a technically difficult lift I can perform to a deep squat position with what I’d consider a good weight and technically pretty sound. Beforehand no chance!”

“The support and encouragement which Marcus gave as a strength and conditioning coach made a bigger impact to my improvements in rowing than I initially realised. I am now trialing for the u23 GB squad but Marcus has worked with me for a number of years. His dedication and enthusiasm to his job made gym sessions so much more enjoyable! Thanks ☺”
