Marshall Thompson – CF L2

Verdant Downtown


Hold fast and carry me off when I’m done. Marshall “Papa Marsh” has been involved with CrossFit since 2013. As a CrossFit Level-2 trainer, he enjoys nothing more than helping others realize their potential and become better versions of themselves. An OG Verdant member since late 2015, Marshall starts most of his days early with this awesome community as an athlete and a coach.

Marshall’s kids are too smart, tough, and amazing for words, and his friends are overly tolerant of his filthy sense of humor. Marshall served as an enlisted petty officer in the US Coast Guard Reserve, once owned a tractor with air conditioning, and holds several advanced degrees and professional licenses related to data science and utility operations
