Coach Spotlight: Marcus

Coach Spotlight: Marcus

We met Marcus one weekend when he dropped in for a class and I guess he liked the place because he just kept coming back. He already had some CrossFit experience and A LOT of training experience from his hockey playing days, so he fit right in at the gym. When he decided he was interested in becoming a coach he really made it a point to spend as much time as possible at the box coaching, training, and learning. He’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and he has become an integral part of our community in a relatively short period of time.

Full Name: Marcus Alan Watson

Funniest or coolest Nickname?
Busters – got the nickname back when I was playing hockey because I used to score a fair amount and my shot would always bust the goalie’s water bottle on the top of the net.
Or Mookie/Mooks- been a family nickname since I was little.
