My Name Is Marino Basic…

And I’m a professional strength and conditioning coach from Croatia. 

Needless to say, I’ve been heavily involved in fitness and wellness since I was 15, so living a healthy lifestyle that ensures longevity has become a second nature to me.

Throughout the years, my hunger for learning new and exciting training methods and techniques never ceased. And with my relentless energy and insatiable thirst for knowledge about fitness and wellness, I was able to open my own gym (Basic Gym One), create the unique Basic Pro Coach certification course and even authoring two books –“Bodyweight Training” & “Basic Training For Life”.

I did all of this for YOU. Because you deserve to have access to the best and most relevant information that can help you live longer, happier and healthier.
