Markus attained his first degree in Hospitality Management and worked in Finance for several years. After a sports-related injury, he began his fitness journey. As he worked with a Physical Therapist for the first time, he was amazed at the profession, the recovery he made, the attentiveness of his PT, and how it improved his quality of life. Thus, Markus decided to move to Gainesville and go back to school in pursuit of a career in Physical Therapy. Passions: You won’t likely findMarkus sitting around. He has quite a few passions, including anything outdoors, hiking, biking, boarding, playing ultimate frisbee or tennis, doing yoga, and competing in triathlons. He enjoys training regularly in weightlifting and CrossFit. Youmight even find himpaddle boarding with his dog on the Santa Fe river, riding his one wheel, or hanging out with his dog at Depot Park. Fun Facts: He likes to push himself and stay fit by doing different Ironman challenges! In 2016, he competed in the Great FloridaTriathlon (Full ironman distance) in Clermont, FL. He trained for two years, progressing in distance fromSprint, Olympic, and Half Ironman distances. Since then, he has participated in Sprint and Olympic distance races to maintain his fitness.

Post-Race Words of Wisdom: “12,000 calories burned and 140.6 miles later, I’ve completedmy first Ultra/IRONMAN distance (Swim 2.4 miles, Bike 112 miles, Run 26.2 miles) at the Great Floridian Triathlon. For me, this required 40% physical strength and endurance, 30%mental stamina, and 30% nutrition. So many thoughts flow through you while doing a race of this length. The motivation to keep moving often comes from the people or things that havemoved us all along.” - Markus
