I first found my interest for working out and improving my body during high school when I took
an early college prep course called fitness for life, I was hooked from the start. I attended Norwich
University where I studied Sports Medicine/Health Science with a minor in Physical Education and was a
varsity basketball player. During my time at Norwich I found my calling. I was in love with the aspect of
training, I loved the workouts we did and saw and felt the improvements to myself and to my game! My
senior year I benched 350, squatted 425, hang cleaned 275 and had a vertical jump of 37”! I played as a
small forward and often times had to play against athletes who were 4-5 inches taller than me but I was
out rebounding them and boxing them out because I was stronger and in better shapCoach_Ian_Marquise.

I interned at Norwich with my mentor and Strength and Conditioning coach for my junior and senior year. I worked side by side with him working with every team we had in the weight room and learning everything I could about strength and conditioning. My second semester senior year I was driving every day from Norwich to UVM to intern with the UVM Athletic Performance department. I
worked with Men’s basketball, Men’s lax , Men’s hockey, Women’s hockey and Women’s soccer. After Norwich I stayed on at UVM Athletic Performance working with multiple teams and coaching as much as I could.

After being at UVM for almost 2 years I found myself working for Peak Performance doing High School and Middle school strength and conditioning. I have worked with some of the best athletes in the area and have had a blast seeing them develop and get better! Recently I have become the Strength and Conditioning coach at Saint Michaels College for Men’s Basketball and Women’s Soccer and it has
been amazing!

I have a huge passion for coaching athletes and giving them and showing them the tools they
need to improve to get to the next level. My philosophy is to engrain the correct movement patterns to
reduce injury and increase skill level. Then get my athletes stronger and more powerful and prep them
for the higher level of athletics. I want to get all my athletes to the college level and see them succeed
at that level! I have a true passion for getting the best out of anyone and love seeing the benefits of
good smart training!
