Prior to becoming a certified triathlon coach, I have been a nationally certified strength and conditioning coach for over 30 years. I have worked with athletes from all walks of life, varied physical capabilities, and age ranges.
My educational background gives me a strong advantage in knowing how the human body works, and my knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology gives my athletes an advantage since it allows me to coach them in a safe, scientific way to avoid injury and to design the correct training regimen for each athlete to get them to their athletic goals faster and safer.
As triathlon coach, I custom design each athlete’s training plan from scratch. Each athlete is different, and so they should have a unique training plan to fit their life-style, work hours, family circumstances, and most important of all, their physical capabilities and areas of improvement.
My athletes get a bonus point that I am also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, so I design strength and conditioning programs to fit each individual athlete based on their fitness level and to streamline their strength program into their training plan.
I lead by example by staying at the top of my game physically and mentally by competing in triathlons, trail running and open-water races and in many endurance events.

Reviews and Ratings for Marques Garcia, Triathlon Certified Coach/ Strength & Conditioning Coach

"It feels amazing!!!!!"
by T. Booker

April 10, 2011

" am a 44 year old guy who never lifted weight or even exercised even in high school, but a recent visit to my doctr showed a high cholestrol, and to make things worse, i had an injured knee that preventd me from doing any kind of exercise or any stretching. the doctor ordered exercise, and he refered me to Mr. Garcia. I am glad I have made the adjustment. Now I am better with my diet, my choletrol is down significantly, and my knee pain has improved tremendously (due to strengthening the muscles around the knee). Marques Garcia is a friggin genuis. I will be honest that hated him when he pushes you hard, but I like him when I am not at his gym and I saw the results. It feels amazing. "

"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 personal trainers in Bellevue trainers and made appointments. Some wanted to push their prices on me even before I met them, others wanted to sell me large packages and seemed more like car salesmen rather than fitness trainers. Ariend of a friend brought up the subject about this trainer (Marques)who's supposed to be really good. 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. "

" "Before I first met with Marques to talk about my fitness goals I was worried. I wondered if this guy was going to be like every other trainer at your local gym that has minimal knowledge and even less experience. On the recommendation of a friend I gave Marques a try. Immediately I could tell that he knew what he was talking about and had the experience I was looking for. I was pumped to get started. Since I began training with Marques I have seen a significant change in my body and in my fitness. He makes it super easy for you, all you have to do is listen to what he says! He handed me a meal plan specific to my goals and an easy cardio regiment. When I meet with him for my private sessions he is always 100% focused on me, and he never lets my workouts get old and stale. You'll never be bored with him, he is very creative and always looking for new ways to challenge me and keep me motivated." "

"I have exercised on a regular basis for 13 years but after 3 kids, I found that my work outs were not giving me the results they used to. I felt like I was in shape but I had a lot of extra body fat to lose. I had always worked out alone but I knew what I was doing just wasn'tt working. I wasn'tt sure I would like a trainer telling me what to do and pushing me to work out harder but I gave my self a 6 week goal to see if I could handle having a personal trainer. I have been training with Marques for over 2 years and I don't want to stop! I have seen a HUGE improvement in all areas of my body. My best result is my body fat, which started at 33% and dropped to 23% in 12 weeks. I have lost a few pounds and inches all over but I have gained muscle and I am much more toned. My clothes feel comfortable even after I eat! I have never worked on core strength or flexibility before but I have naturally gained both through my workouts. Marques has shown me a new way to exercise. I am working out muscles I never knew I had. I am using machines, cables and balls that I never knew existed. The change in my workouts has dramatically improved my fitness level and I have a much higher endurance and strength ability. I have recommended Marques to many people and I have met many people who have already worked with him. I am thrilled with my results, and I want other people to experience it too." "

"I went on a recommondation of a friend who worked with Mr. Garcia. I had never been to a gym before, for a mother of 2 sons at 38 years of age, I thought losing 30 pounds would be impossible. Marques asked and demanded a lot, but he is the best trainer I have EVER seen. I lost 35 pounds in less than 6 month. Now the fun part is just maintaining what I have worked hard for."
