Learn how the Marc Pro works


MARC PRO Demo

Today 7/21 from 6:30-9am and 10am-1pm we will have David Melendez from Marc Pro giving free muscle recovery and activation sessions (10-30 minutes). There will be 3 stations set up and everyone is encouraged to try out a session before class, after the WOD for a recovery session, or on lunch break from work as part of your rest day recovery.

What is the Marc Pro? The Marc Pro muscle conditioning device creates unique, strong, but completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events. We call this a Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade, or “MARC®” for short. To learn more visit MARCPRO.com
