More About Coach Marlon

After graduating with a B.S in Biology and minor in psychology-from 2006-2007 I was a sports performance coach, physical therapy aide and personal trainer for Symmetry Physical Therapy located in Pelham and Eastchester New York. As a sports performance coach, I conducted various group strength and conditioning classes-from ages 11 to adults-while training individual athletes in football, baseball, basketball and soccer. I was responsible for creating and monitoring the fitness work out program that would be fun and functional for their goals. Along with various sports, I also conducted training classes with athletes who competed on different levels from amateur to collegiate sports. Core training, stretching, agilities and proprioception are my basic pillars of training and I strive to incorporate them through the duration of the workout. Therefore, with my athletic history and education, I can help a myriad of athletes looking to enhance their specific skill or overall fitness. As for my athletic career, in my junior year of high school, I was appointed starting quarterback, this without any previous experience. Due to my raw athletic ability I had to find ways to harness it and did so with intense training during the off-season. Furthermore, besides reading concepts on defense to help me read and recognize coverage’s, my biomechanics was overhauled from the classic motion to a core rotary motion with a simple arm action. This style of throwing gave me a lighting quick release and I never suffered from any injury or discomfort associated with repetitive use of the older motion like-dead arm syndrome, shoulder and or elbow pain. Joe Namath, former quarterback of the NY Jets made this style famous and he also dedicated a chapter in his book (A Matter of Style) in trying to decipher the motion. You can also find quarterbacks of today’s game using this rotary motion (e.g. Dan Marion and Phillip Rivers). Consequently, I was selected as a quarterback to the New York City All Star Team in my junior and senior year, while being recruited by the Universities of Miami, Massachusetts and Central Florida. Due to my work ethic, I was recognized and invited to attend the Bishop and Dullaghan’s football passing camp in Indianapolis for top players in the country. A couple of ACL knee surgeries cut my career short and I began studying to become a physician. I received a competitive NRSA grant from the NIMH to study mental disorders and this is how I started working at Weill Cornell and currently manage the Neurosurgery Laboratory. Rotational Throwing Biomechanics (R.T.B) is the term for the centripetal overhead motion and I submitted preliminary data to a peer-review journal that shows the disparate smooth kinematics of R.T.B in contrast to the classic overhead motion. Thus, I specialize in quarterback throwing motions and I’m eager to educate the serious athlete who wants a quick release that will give them an edge on the field and reduce the problems associated with repetitive overhead biomechanics.

Without experience and my first time playing organized football, I was an NYC all start quarterback and was recruited by University of Miami and Central Florida.

I always start my first session with a circuit training exercise. You are given 60 sec before the start of each course and thirty seconds between each station- you can use them as you need. There will be 5 total runs through the course. The course and each station is designed to test key aspects of your athleticism such as, balance, coordination, strength, explosiveness, footwork and your overall conditioning. This will give me feedback into how to structure our program as I not only develop your specific skill ( second half of workout and beyond ) but athletic enhancement is interwove in each meeting.

Client Reviews

I’m not giving the review because I wasn’t training. But Ethan was very happy with Coach Marlon. He said that the coach was a good mix of firm and understanding.

We found coach Marlon to be exceptional. He's prompt, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He encourages my son to follow through each move/drill repeatedly to improve skills. We will continue to book with him and look forward to great results. - M. Clark

Fantastic sessions with Coach Marlon. He really knows the QB position and is able to teach it effectively. Quickly assessed my son’s level and worked on making adjustments and fine-tuned footwork. My son is playing college football and learned a great deal from Coach Marlon. Highly recommended.

Our son really got a lot of the sessions with Marlon. Very diverse expertise across the board in areas important for young quarterbacks

Very responsive and flexible with meeting time and location. Tailored his coaching to my son's individual mechanical needs to make it an amazingly productive session. He learned so much in this one on one session! Son is excited to take his improved skills and perspective to the field and we look forward to working with him further. Can not thank him enough for giving him that extra spark that he needed!

Coach Marlon was an excellent coach for my son. He helped correct some footwork issues and other mechanical breakdowns in his throw while also finding a way to be engaging and fun. Marlon also has great enthusiasm and natural teaching skills.

My experience with coach Marlon was great. I was coming to him not as an athlete but as a researcher. He proved to be smart personable and totally professional. He is very knowledgeable about cutting-edge training techniques. And a great guy!

Coach Marlon works with my son to increase his skills and confidence levels in a number of sports, including football, basketball and baseball. My son loves working with him and has learned a lot.

Coach Marlon worked with my 14 year old son - he was friendly, patient and knowledgeable

Coach Marlon is an excellent coach, he has helped our son in every aspect of the quarterback position. The throwing motion centered around rotational mechanics has helped our son throw longer distances and to throw more accurate and faster with less discomfort. Coach Marlon has taught our son to have better self confidence on the football field and to be an all around better football player. Our son looks forward to his practice sessions with Coach Marlon.

My son was disappointed with his lack of time on the field and I could see the lack of confidence he had during certain plays. Coach Marlon McGill was exactly what he needed. Coach gave him one on one instruction walking him through the technical aspects of his position and then putting him through the drills needed to build his confidence and skill set. That frustration my son felt on the field is now replaced with excitement to train with Coach and motivation to learn more. KP

Coach Marlon has all the right tools to coach a football player and help become a better athlete. The attention and detail that is provided in the session is very impressive, from warm up to conditioning. Coach Marlon is recommended.

Coach Marlon was great! During our first session, he quickly identified and corrected flaws in my son's throwing mechanics. My son also learned QB techniques that he was able to apply immediately in games. Most importantly, Coach Marlon showed professionalism and a positive attitude.

He is amazing; from the first session I understood the philosophy of the game and now I am looking forward to the next session!!!

Coach Marlon was very fast to respond and knows the key basics of football. He can help you both skillwise and physically. I highly recommend him for anyone interested in playing football wanting to get an extra edge in the game

my son is starting QB for his 6th grade team and we wanted to get him some one on one training before the season began. marlon is fantastic! he is energetic, completely involved, pleasant,easy to contact, and not only works on mechanics but physical conditioning as well. my son's agility and stamina are a strong focus of the sessions. marlon also teaches him the responsibility of being a team leader and the importance of being a team player. would highly recommend marlon to coach anyone wanting to get ahead in the game.

I rate Coach Marlon 4.5 stars. He pointed out great details about how I can improve my performance on the field as a QB; gave me some great ball skills on how to better grip & control the ball. He also showed me how to get back quicker in my "drop backs".
