Mareck Bigler

Mareck Bigler travelled all the way from Switzerland to complete our junior apprentice diploma program. He graduated in the spring of 2011 and headed home with the tools to help him open his own affiliate in Switzerland. Here's what he has to say: With a gymnastics and team sports backround, I discovered Crossfit two years ago and it caught my interest right away. I did one year of training by myself, took my level 1 cert, and then headed to Crossfit Vancouver for their apprentice diploma program. I found the CrossFit Vancouver community to be a real family. It was the best time of my life. My experience in Vancouver really opened my eyes and my heart. I learned the CrossFit movements and the importance of good form and technique. My own training also improved a lot. Charlie Palmer coached me on a daily basis while in Vancouver, and his expertise and advice helped me qualify for my Regional competition in Europe. Another valuable aspect of the program was the business advice I received from Patty. I can't wait to open my own CrossFit affiliate and and share this experience with the Swiss people! -Mareck Bigler
