Marvin was a military kid and grew up moving from South Carolina, Georgia, Alaska, and Florida. His passion for the military continued when he graduated high school and joined the United States Air Force as a bomb loader. Upon leaving the Air Force, Marvin joined the hotel industry and has not looked back since. For the last 15 years, Marvin has worked for IHG (Holiday Inn Brand Hotels) as a hotel consultant supporting hotels in the Midwest.
Marvin found CrossFit in July 2016, in need of losing weight and trying to simply be active. He quickly realized that CrossFit was life changing. Marvin dropped 60+ pounds, gained knowledge of nutrition, strength and also saw the amazing community that he could be a part of. In 2017, Marvin Obtained his Level 1 Trainer and started coaching at CrossFit St Croix in Hudson WI. Marvin knew that he wanted to share his knowledge and passion for coaching and for helping others in reaching their goals, no matter if they are an elite athlete or looking to simply stay active. Everyone can succeed.
Not only does Marvin enjoy competing at CrossFit competitions, he also enjoys being outdoors, running, golf and hiking.
Outside of the Gym, Marvin enjoys hanging out with his wife Deanna, their 3 cats, watching Notre Dame Football and the Hallmark Channel (Yup, you read that correctly).
