"Marques has been a godsend to me through my prep this year. I started with him in June, and have been working with him for the past 6 months to prep for my show in November. I came to him at 140lbs, and am currently starting my peak week at 113lbs. 27lbs lighter and he has done an incredible job of maintaining my muscle mass while bringing my body fat down. I have been doing minimal cardio and my carbs are still high, even being one week out from my show. I'm telling y'all, this guy is a mastermind when it comes to nutrition! He has it down to a science. I have had the absolute BEST experience with this prep, and Marques has been there for me whenever I need him. He does an incredible job of making you feel like you are his only client, and he maintains a great coach-to-client relationship, regardless of the amount of clients he has at the time. After having him coach me this year, I wouldn't dream of working with anyone else from this point forward! You can't go wrong with CTN."

"Before I found Marques and Team CTN, I had my share of improper training and nutrition guidance which affected me negatively and put me in a spot where I was unhappy both physically and mentally. After doing my research, I knew Team CTN is where I wanted to be and during my first conversation with Marques I had no doubts I had made the right choice. Today, marks 10 months of being under his guidance and I can truly look back and say this was the best decision I've ever made for myself. I lost 45 lbs and was able to compete which is something I had been wanting to accomplish for so long. Marques' coaching allowed me to have a sustainable competition prep where I was never placed on extremely low calories or excessive amounts of cardio. Using flexible dieting, we did things the healthy way and accomplished long term results, which is why 10 months down the line after multiple competitions, I am able to move forward and make improvements from a good place.
Aside from being such a good influence in my life by helping me improve my physique, Marques has also become a friend. Throughout my prep he was supportive, approachable and to this day I know I can share anything with him, whatever it is and he'll be there to guide me. He truly believes in you and is probably more proud of your accomplishments than you are! With Team CTN, I've found a family. I've met so many different individuals who I've been able to connect with, who have been there to offer support regardless of where they are in their fitness journeys. With competing being a sport that can get very difficult at times, it's an amazing feeling to be surrounded by so much positivity and love. Marques and being part of Team CTN have had such a positive influence in my life, they have transformed me in every aspect for the better and I would never imagine myself anywhere else!"

"December 2015 I was struggling with post contest rebound, binge eating, and depression. I was frustrated, bloated, and drained from lifting for an hour and doing two hours of cardio six times a week! I reached out to a former football coach from college after seeing his transformation using the flexible dieting approach. How could he be eating all these diverse range of foods and be incredibly lean? I thought the only foods that would achieve a lean physique were chicken, fish, turkey, and only green vegetables. He recommended Marques to me, so I contacted Marques in tears asking for help. I told him I did not want to compete anymore, just get my health back! I had gained 30lbs post contest and started at 150lbs on my 5'3 frame. I had difficulty breathing and punished myself for binging at night with long bouts of cardio. I was also very irritable and my family was not happy with me. Marques and I started working together at the end of January 2016. He blew my mind when he allowed me to pick the foods I wanted, the style of High Intensity Interval Training (only 20 minutes five times a week), and encouraged me to do my own research on health and wellness. Now, nine months later I have lost 35lbs eating the food I want, lifting, and minimal cardio! I am no longer irritable, which saved my marriage. Most importantly, I no longer binge and am happy with the woman I have become. I thank God everyday for putting Marques Caudle and Team CTN in my life to help lift me out of the dark pit I was in."

"Before joining the Team CTN family, I was just a normal person in the gym listening to all the Bro Science. I would spend countless hours in the gym working out and doing cardio but I wasn't noticing any changes. It wasn't until someone at the gym referred me to Marques and his team. I am glad I listened because Marques and the Team are more than just a Team its a family! Marques is always there to reply to my emails in a timely manner, no question is a dumb question and his patience is superb. Thank you for everything coach!"

"Before starting with Marques, I weighed just about 175 pounds and was struggling with my weight loss. I was drinking and partying every weekend and my motivation and self confidence were no where to be found. After deciding to compete for my first time and interviewing coaches, it was Marques' responsiveness, knowledge of the sport and approach to flexible dieting that won me over. Now let me tell you... 27 week later, as of this morning I weigh 133 pounds and have never been happier in my entire life. Through my long prep, I have never had to cut out carbs completely, never participated in fasted cardio, and saw a constant healthy amount of weight fall off each week, He is a man genius when it comes to fitness and nutrition and can now say...I can't imagine where my life would have gone had I not been introduced to this mastermind! When I first contacted him I knew absolutely nothing about competing. He always provided me with the knowledge I needed to be competitive on stage. He connects with you on a personal level and is always readily available when you need to chat.
