My name is Josh Marciano and my drive for fitness is fueled by the desire to impact other’s lives. I am energetic and passionate about everything I do, and do my best to contagiously spread that same energy and passion to everyone I train. I am from Clarksville, Tennessee (Go Vols) and was raised on aesthetics and athletics. I was blessed to be awarded All District, All Region and All State honors my junior and senior year as a wide receiver and quarterback, breaking school records for passing touchdowns and all-purpose yards. This would enable me to pursue athletics in college at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. After a year of college football, due to a knee injury, I moved to Florida to be around family and pursue a career in the fitness industry.
In 2013 I began coaching high school football and took over the Strength and Conditioning program at Southwest Florida Christian High School. I am the Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks coach and have been able to successfully send four Quarterbacks to the Fort Myers All Star Game consecutively for the past four years. Through the past five years I have trained hundreds of athletes at the high school and collegiate level, as well as personal trained clients from the age of 6 to 60. During this time I have learned that everyone is an athlete and fitness can positively impact the lives of others based on specific needs. My experience has been based on plyometric and explosive movement, speed, agility and strength incorporated through HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts and EPOC (Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption) training for maximal fat loss and muscle gain programs.
I am currently attending Florida Gulf Coast University, majoring in Health and Human Performance with a minor in Exercise Science. I am also pursuing my CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) and eventually a Masters in Sports Management. I was blessed to obtain my CPT license through the American Council on Exercise and am always motivated to learn as much as I can. I am excited to join such a knowledgeable, credentialed, and energetic staff at Platinum Fitness bringing my own unique energy and passion to the team in order to not only better others but to better myself. “Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.”
