Marcus has been keenly interested in the health and fitness industry for many years.

Following this success, Marcus returned home to set up his business.

In tandem with Jamie, Marcus designed a series of programmes, ranging from large group training to one-to-one personal training, all of which fell under the First Class Fitness umbrella. As the months progressed, Marcus’ personal training client roster and First Class Fitness Camp’s membership grew, with his and Jamie’s hard work and dedication to the company clearly paying dividends. Today, First Class Fitness encompasses Personal Training, First Class Physiques, First Class Fitness Camp, First Class Nutrition, and is ever-expanding, coaching way over 100 people every week. The First Class Fitness approach to doing things – that we should always do the right thing, even if it may be difficult – reflects Marcus’ approach to his work and, more broadly, his character. Marcus enjoys the challenge and process of training diverse range of people, with different health & fitness/sporting goals.
Alongside being a personal trainer, Marcus designs and leads the First Class Physiques and First Class Fitness Camp programmes, as well as creating much of the content for First Class Nutrition.
