Learn how the Marc Pro works


MARC PRO Demo

Tuesday 7/14 from 5-7pm and again on Tuesday 7/21 from 6:30-8am 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 either before class on the warmup setting or after the WOD for a recovery session.

What is the Marc Pro? The Marc Pro is intended for muscle conditioning by stimulating muscle in order to improve or facilitate muscle performance. Marc Pro is specifically designed to accelerate this recovery process. 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.

The process begins with the activation of Nitric Oxide (NO), which dilates blood vessels and leads to increased flow delivering more oxygenated blood and nutrients to the area. The lymphatic and venous systems also require and benefit from localized muscle activity. Because of this, using the Marc Pro after physical activity helps move the related waste and deoxygenated blood away from the fatigued area(s). This exchange of nourishment and waste, without stress or fatigue, accelerates the recovery of the muscle.
