BUILT FOR TRAINING
“If you are looking for the best place to train your athlete, then ICON is the place, especially for baseball players. We conducted our full winter strength and conditioning at ICON in 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 and it enabled our players to excel on the field. Chad Marr does a great job of personalizing the workouts for each player depending on where they are at in their development. I myself have been going to ICON for over 3 years now and would trust my workouts to no one else.”
Barry Rose (former Wakeland HS head baseball coach and currently head baseball coach at Rockwall HS)
“I have been in Pro baseball since 2015 with the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees. Chad and Icon gym has made a dramatic impact on my career and has been my home away from home in the off season. The workouts push me to my limits everyday and helps me prepare my body to take on a full 140 game season. “
Mitchell Hansen, 2nd Round Draft Pick
“I don’t really know where to begin on the effect that Chad has had on my life and specifically my baseball career. Before I came to Chad, I had arm issues, I fractured my spine twice and suffered from back spasms among other smaller things. Because of my back issues I was terrified of squatting and deadlifting, but the basic training that opened my hips and taught me how to use muscles I’ve never used before completely flipped the switch. My first day out of the box matrix Chad told me to get under the bar with my teammates and was the first one to teach me how to squat properly. Everything Chad implements in his training has helped me stay healthy and out on the field, since going to Chad I have yet to have a muscular injury. His philosophy of movement over weight, and everything being connected has stuck with me till this day and will stick with me the rest of my life. The results that I have experienced in the 2 years I trained with Chad include All State Honors my senior year in high school, and freshman All-American this past year at SFA.”
Jared Martin, SFA Baseball Collegiate All American
“I started working with Chad in 2016 and it changed my life and my career. In my opinion there is not another gym for athletes to train at that has what ICON has to offer. A combination of the knowledge he provides and the people around the gym is what makes it so special. Chad helped me to understand what kind of hard work and dedication it takes to change your body. ICON Gym impacted my career and helped me to fulfill my dream and play in the Major Leagues. I fully plan on continuing to work with Chad for years to come, and consider ICON Gym my home. If you are an athlete I highly recommend Chad Marr and ICON Gym.”
