Marv is a natural competitive bodybuilder with a strong yoga practice currently working on both his yoga teacher and personal training certification at Mira Costa College.
Training since he was a teen, Marv has developed and utilized short intense workouts for years to perfect his symmetry. In 2010 Marv was introduced to yoga by Sophia and he began incorporating yoga into his bodybuilding regiment. He took more than a year off from competitive bodybuilding and began to focus on a full time yoga practice with Sophia to help enhance his bodybuilding competitive pursuit.
Two years after adding yoga to his routine, Marv competed in the Mr. Natural California bodybuilding show in Folsom, California. He placed 1st in his division, was crowned overall champion and earned his first professional natural bodybuilding pro card. The flexibility he developed from yoga increased his overall strength and focus.
If you would like to learn how to incorporate more flexibility training or add powerful yoga movements into your fitness routine, Marv is available for personal training sessions. Marv currently teaches the Warrior Cats classes, helping students develop strength and muscular endurance utilizing exercise bands.
