Marcin has been an athlete for the last quarter century. He has been a competitive swimmer since the age of seven and by the age of twelve was topping the world ranks for his age. His swimming talent and prowess afforded him a four-year scholarship at the University of Arkansas and afterward he was offered a position as an assistant swimming coach at Alfred University in New York. While working on his MBA, Marcin developed an interest in the sport of triathlon and in 1997 completed his first Olympic distance triathlon. In one year’s time he began competing as a Professional Triathlete. In 2001, Marcin decided to leave the corporate world behind him and entered the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Cup Circuit full time.
Today, Marcin, a native of Sweden resides in Fort Worth, Texas and still enjoys an occasional run, bike or swim, but he does it purely for relational purposes. Having traveled the world and experiencing the International Triathlon circuit, he now helps local athletes achieve their goals and dreams in multi-sport events.

I graduated from Texas Christian University in 2009. At TCU I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology while being a full time student athlete. As an athlete, massage was always an important factor for improving performance. I believe massage is a necessary component of sports and rehabilitation. As a track and field athlete at TCU I achieved All American honors and was able to put my name in the record books by attaining the TCU women's 400 meter hurdle record in 2007. I was also given the honor of becoming a TCU All Time Great. Without the aid of massage and athletic training, recuperation from my events would have been a lot more strenuous. Massage creates a great way to de-stress and rejuvenate the body from its day to day activities. As a massage therapist I love working on athletes and people who enjoy being active. Revitalizing achy muscles is what I do best. So far being a massage therapist has given me great joy. It's always a pleasure helping people feel rejuvenated after a long day at work.
