Hi! Welcome to the very first post of massesandspaces.com! I’m excited to begin this project and finally start getting a consistent stream of content going. My name is Marlin Legare, I am the creator and will be the main author of this site. I’ve been in the fitness industry for 7 years, I have a B. Kin and many other certifications (see About). My teaching style is very movement focused with cues borrowed from gymnastics, martial arts, weightlifting and free flow motion.
My vision is to create a central hub where I can share my knowledge of fitness and movement with my personal training clients and friends, as well as promote my personal training and canfitpro PRO TRAINER businesses. This project is also an avenue for me to document my business, personal and fitness progress, learn new fitness techniques, and keep myself up to date on the latest research on all that is fitness and the human body! It’s a never-ending learning process for me, too. The point of this site is just as much about learning as it is teaching.
What you can expect is cool, fun videos in which I’ll be demonstrating exercise movements, some conventional and some not! For all the nerds out there like me, I’ll also be writing posts on physiology, bio-mechanics, basic nutrition, injury prevention and rehabilitation, and my takes on common myths and debates of fitness concepts. I also will be writing about mental and emotional aspects of fitness, and the struggles people have overcoming them. The body and mind are one- mental health effects physical health in big ways and vice-versa. This blog will also eventually gain more content and extra features as I continue to get the ball rolling!
Lastly, this project is a showcase of my business and myself. With 7 years of experience in the industry , I have a lot to offer to my clients as a personal trainer and to participants/potential future personal trainers as a PRO TRAINER; the content of this blog will reflect that. You will also be able to find out about my upcoming projects and camps here, and when my Personal Training Specialist courses and exams will be (which will be very soon!).
Thank you for taking the time to check this out and read all of this. I legitimately hope that you will enjoy the content I create and it inspires you to also document your journey in some way, shape or form. I’m excited for what the future holds!
