"I was introduced to the Marc Pro at the CrossFit Games in 2014. Over time, I've realized what a huge difference it makes going into the next day of training, so it has become part of my nightly routine! I spend at least 20 minutes flushing out the muscles in order to recover faster and perform better!"

I carry chronic tension through my traps and upper back because my life is a mix of workout out, testing fitness gear, and then typing on a laptop. Doesn't help that I am high strung and a busy body. The Marc Pro has helped with that tightness so much that I proposed. Marc and I are getting married.

I think that the Marc Pro can be a helpful tool for any athlete looking for another helpful recovery or activation tool. It's simple to use, and extremely effective. We invest so much time and money in all the other equipment and training, but sometimes the recovery aspect is overlooked, even though it's just as important.

"The Marc Pro works really well for arm pump...the cool thing is that we don't have to plug it in, and we can have it at the track...So I can hook them up with some pads, turn the machine on while they're resting, talking, they're drinking they can get their arms to recover, that way when they're back on the bike again, they're feeling 100%"

The Marc Pro is my go to recovery method. Allowing me to recover quickly and get back at it, the Marc Pro has become part of my training regimen that I will not go a day without. Whether you are an elite athlete going for the gold, or a weekend warrior looking to take your training to another level and simply recover faster, I highly recommend owning the Marc Pro.

Marc Pro is essential in everyday life. I teach Golf 6-8 hour days and look forward to coming home to my Marc pro Plus! It completely rejuvenates my legs and body for the next day. Marc Pro is a huge part of my life and daily performance. This device is the real deal and I fully recommend the Marc Pro to anyone. Part of my Golf Instruction is teaching my clients about their physical self. I have numerous clients that use Marc Pro prior to their Golf Lesson so they are fully loose, pain free, and energized. It makes part of my job easier! I've seen improvement in swing speeds and longer ball distance due to the fact that Marc Pro provides our muscles to be relaxed and pain free. You do not have to be a professional athlete, or any fitness trainer to use one. Anyone that wants the convenience of treating yourself to personal muscle healing and performance at home or on the go, Marc Pro is the answer. Do it for a better you!

The Marc Pro device is a key part of my recovery protocol. It is simple to use and helps expedite recovery after tough workouts. It is important for me to be able to train, rest, recover and then train well again - and the Marc Pro helps facilitate this process. I tend to use it for 30-40 mins at a time, placing the pads on whichever area of my body feels most fatigued. After big swim workouts I'll use on my lats and shoulders; after heavy runs or rides I'll use it on my quads, ITBs or hamstrings. It is a great recovery tool and easy to travel with. I'm a big fan!

When I use the Marc Pro after my evening training session, I feel like I didn't even work out. Relieving the sore muscles right before bedtime helps me sleep better, and wake up with more energy. That extra energy means I can push myself harder when I go back to the gym.
