Marcos ran track & field as a sprinter. He ran for 4 years as a youth but eventually stopped and no longer participated in sports or anything else athletic. After years of being inactive Marcos decided to take part in a corporate challenge 5k run. The result was an eye opener. He needed to get in shape so he joined a “globo-gym”. After 2 years of working out, plateauing was inevitable. He began to look for more of a challenge. He was introduced to Crossfit by a friend from high school and everything in his life changed forever. Marcos now has a Crossfit level 1 cert for over a year and is an avid Crossfit athlete of 4 years. He was a team sub for Crossfit NYC in the 2011 Crossfit regionals in Canton Massachusetts. He currently trains and coaches at Crossfit 718 with aspirations of competing again.
