Meet Marco - The Man Overcoming Wellness Obstacles
We sat down with the incredible Marco - a man who doesn't take 'no' for an answer.
Marco is an inspirational Occupation Life Coach and Personal Trainer. As a long-time advocator of health and fitness, he began training at 16, and won his first fitness competition in 2008. This was followed in quick succession by another two victories, and he soon became a FAME Pro Fitness Model, earning WBFF Pro Status. In 2013, Marco was involved in a devastating vehicle accident that left him with Quadriplegia. He was told he had a 2% chance of moving again, and decided he wasn’t settling with those odds. Marco has been in recovery ever since, and with his life goal being to one day walk again, he is improving his mobility more and more each day.
We decided this was a guy we'd like to get to know a little better:
NN: What is your health philosophy?
M: I believe a healthy body leads to a healthy mind, which can overcome anything.
NN: Give us three words to describe yourself.
M: Determined, driven and motivated.
NN: What would you say is your favourite meal?
M: That's easy - lamb shank with roast vegetables.
NN: And your favourite Nature’s Nutrition variant?
NN: What's your favourite way to enjoy Nature’s Nutrition? (Ours is smoothies)
M: Mine's the same! I have it blended with mixed berries and ice - lean and clean.
NN: Describe a day in the life of Marco.
M: I wake up, dress up and dominate the day. Monday to Friday I train in the midday and get some admin done in the afternoon. At the moment I am in recovery from a motor vehicle accident so my days change continuously.
NN: Words to live by?
M: There is no such thing as "I can't".
