Coach Marco focuses on small-scale, custom crafted coaching. He is knowledgeable in physiology and conscientious of the specific needs of both male and female athletes. He understands that most age-groupers have a life outside of sport and that accommodating for the stresses of the daily grind is just as important as developing marginal gains. As such, he focuses on helping athletes achieve sport-life harmonization as an integral part to their goal setting.
Marco is an expert guide who relates to real world athletes, is easily accessible, understands and adapts technology but coaches people not just numbers. He focuses in on the training process in order to achieve a successful outcome.
From a young age, Marco competed in a variety of sports including martial arts, basketball, downhill skiing and soccer. His desire to help athletes started in his early twenties when he began coaching coed U19 soccer in Michigan. In 2000, Marco relocated to Atlanta to study Neuromuscular Therapy and Sports Massage, focusing specifically on helping people manage injuries and relieve pain. He practiced for three years before moving to Florida to work in real estate where he rediscovered his love of sport and fitness.
He started cycling under the guidance of experienced racers, then added in swimming (primarily to confront his fear of water!) by hiring a collegiate level swim coach from West Point. Soon after, his friends challenged him to give triathlon a try and he became hooked. Not long after this, his desire to restart coaching reignited after he met his now wife Hannah, who is also a triathlete.
In 2012, Marco relocated to Colorado to pursue a coaching mentorship program developed by Bob Seebohar through Multisport University. Under Bob’s guidance, he became a Kids that TRI Youth and Junior Certified Triathlon Coach, while also growing his business, coaching as a Swim America Coach and racing competitively. He also developed his coaching experience under Susan Williams (Olympic Bronze Medalist) for two years.
Marco has raced every distance of triathlon from Sprint to Ironman. He has qualified and raced at Age Group Nationals (qualifying for Worlds) and the 70.3 World Championships on three separate occasions. He has received USA Triathlon Honorable Mention All American Status multiple times since 2009. Marco is currently an active Pro 1-2 bike racer specializing in technical races and a Category 3 Cyclocross racer who continues to dabble in trail running with the occasional triathlon sprinkled in.
He has a dual citizenship in the United States and Italy and speaks fluent Italian. He lives and loves multisport as a healthy and entertaining aspect of a harmonious life.”
