Changed my life – Great great great trainer. I will be honest and say that I hate to workout, but I needed to get ready for pregnancy. My back was hurting, no sure if if I had hurt it during a fall, but my back and hips hurt. I am 35, I already have a 10 year old, but I wanted to have another baby with my husband (who encouraged me greatly to look for a trainer). I found Marques and I am so thrilled that within 4 months of training ...miracle. I don't know how he did it, but my back pain is GONE! My hip pain is GONE! and I lost 37 pounds. The good news? I am pregnant and on my 9th month's it is amazing how it is so close for me but I feel great physically and I owe it all to the fitness goals he had helped crate with me, and I am still doing his training. I have to give Marques high marks for changing my life.
Please if you are a woman who wants to get ready for a child, he will make you fit and strong and get you to your fitness level.
Inspirational and knowledgeable. – Marques is the most inspirational and focused trainer I have ever been with! Just when you think you can't do one more rep, he flashes that big smile and before you know it, you've pushed yourself just that one notch more!! The result is you feel so good, so confident and a huge sense of accomplishment afterwards. I love how efficient his program is; focusing on muscle groups, balance, strength and cardio. His program is diverse so i am never bored. He is also very direct and very honest with you. There is an instant trust and bond. I did his 6 week boot camp and am now on a regular routine.
My Balance Was Almost Nonexistent – “I came to Marques almost three years ago at 63. I came with several joints giving me sever problems ( my right shoulder, left ankle, left knee (with inserted titanium screws and a plate in it, a reconstructed right knee ) and generally minimum range of motion. My balance was almost nonexistent, my fitness level was very low, and my flexibility needed improvement. Marques has developed a therapeutic regimen for me that improved my overall fitness level, including stretches and strength exercises that I never thought I would be able to do.
My stamina has improved, and my range of motion is amazing, especially the flexibility of the lower extremities. I am pleasantly surprised at my age that I can do the things that most of my peers would not even come close to doing. For someone with my physical limitations , improvement like I’ve seen can only be attributed my active physical program that I follow with Marques. I would recommend him to anyone who has physical limitations and wants to restore their health and fitness.”
Great Trainer, best location – “I went to The Power Source Fitness Studio after a nagging knee injury prevented me from exercise for 5 years. I put on at least 50 pounds.
I met Marques Garcia and I am glad that I did. I heard about this guy from a college friend who did triathlon training with Marques a couple of years ago. I expected him to be a drill sergeant, someone who barked orders, or someone like the special variety that comes a dime a dozen at your local gym. Boy was I wrong!
The guy actually knows his stuff. He knows anatomy, he knows the body, he knows how and when to push, and he knows how to motivate. Suffice it to say, I joined in February of this year. In five months I lost 45 of the 50 pounds I put on in 5 years! Not only do I feel and look better, but I really feel like an athlete. I feel 15 years younger, and with a zest and vitality of a teenager! I want to continue doing this.”
World class Trainer – I was afraid to set up training with a personal fitness trainer, especially after my first experience a few years ago went badly. My trainer then did not understand my goals, made me lift too heavy, and barked at me. I decidd I did not want to do this again, but after a few years of struggling with weight, diabetes, and other ailments, I needed help. I live in Bellevue, and looked at many listings for trainers and made appointments. Some wanted to push their prices on me even before i met them, others wanted to sell me large packages....a friend of a friend brought up the subject about this trainer who's supposed to really care. Reluctantly,I went to see Marques at The Powersource Fitness Studio in Bellevue. I realized immediately that Marques was exactly the opposite fo my last trainer. He's knowledgeable, smart, funny, witty, polite, and knew exactly how to handle me. I am very difficult in doing what I am told, but I needed the help to lose the weight and get firmer. He knew how to be respectful of me as a female. My goal was to lose 40 pounds by this past April. I lost it since February, and now my sessions are just to maintain what I have accomplished with his help. Thanks Marques.
Thanks for making me look good on my wedding day! – I want to thank you for making me look good during my wedding. I started with you in mid April, I think. My wedding was in July 23rd, and I owe my new shape all to you. I came to you with at least 30 pounds to lose, and on my wedding day I lost 33 pounds, and I never felt starved! Your techniques and coaching are what motivated me to start a new fitness life, and now I am working on the easier part: maintaining what we did. My husband and my friends are always complementing me and I honestly tell them if it was not for Marques, there's NO WAY I could have done it.
I will recommond you to all my family and friends.
I love the results – I came to the Powersource Fitness Studio on August 2010. I work long hours and I felt that I was losing grip of my fitness. I used to run and bike and do many outdoors activities, but an injury to my know prevented me from any further fitness activities. I wanted to lose 30 pounds, and it seemed daunting. Marques was hands on. He trained me 3X a week at his Studio, we did cardio, strength training, power jumps, core strength, and many more excercises I cannot even count. His knowledge of anatomy is amazing and his qualifications speak volumes, and he insisted on stetches after every workout. On the off days, I was never off! I am doing stretches, core exercises, and cardio. Suffice it to say I have lost 33 pounds. I exceeded my goals. I love training with Marques, and I will admit that I hate the feeling of of almost puking, but now i am way fitter. I feel like I am in the best shape of my life (even though it has only been three and a half months training with him).
