This show is about the role of a personal trainer. I will address things that stop you from working out such as your lifestyle, your habits, and your work life & apart from these three aspects of your life, on top of that, family contributes time consumption & responsibilities. People alone are generally unable to manage these situations, trainers have insight of how to help you balance your time. I’m here to be your trainer, I have the experience to help you help yourself & to help you overcome all obstacles of your life that keep you from training. We want to distinguish between choices & lifestyles. You will always have distractions by the situations and responsibilities in life. If working out becomes a lifestyle and part of your routine it no longer becomes a choice but a part of you. Things that affect your energy level are food: what, how and when we eat, sugars, fats, and starches can hinder your energy level. The idea of working out is to use your body to its best.

I am Marcus Aurelius. My first introduction to body building was at the age of 17 when I was introduced to my college mentor, Rob Serenja, at Cambourne Technical College in Cornwall, England. In 1986 I immigrated to America where I was able to pursue my dreams to become a body builder like my hero, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who I had the pleasure of training with for a little time at World’s Gym but I needed a job so I could live. With his help, and influences, I was hired on to my dream job as a personal trainer at Gold’s Gym in Los Angeles, California.
Since then, I moved to Austin, Texas, where I was able to work in many gyms throughout the Austin region. My most favorite gym I worked at was the East Communities YMCA because of its Christian standards and the people there were the greatest.
In 2007 I started my own gym, and now own Elgin Fitness in Elgin, Texas, where I specialize in personal training. I have a very loyal clientele base who support me and who I am. I’m very thankful for them because they were very supportive in my starting this show. Over the years, I have trained thousands of people who still do all they can to stay in contact with me.
I have always been highly respected and liked because of the insight I have been able to share, especially when it came to weight loss and fitness. Training has always been my passion and my gift. I hope through my extensive knowledge and experience from years of training I can touch your life too.
