William Marshall, Founder, started Benswic® in the Fall of 2016 with the goal of giving back quality coaching and training to youth and adults. William has been a runner his whole life, starting at the age of 7, competing in Clubs, High School, College (Adelphi University) and continues to compete today. Along the way, William decided to take up fitness and become a personal trainer full-time. This pushed him to become certified, making him more qualified for the services he provides. Benswic® was created with the idea of VALUE, from youth to adult. William wants to make sure everyone knows they are valued and that they are reaching their goals. This passion stems from his experiences in not receiving this and the great need he sees in today organizations and gyms.
William’s mission is to have each individual close that chapter of isolation and rejection and become part of a family (feeling valued). This effort he believes will provide help and inspire those to reach a goal that they have either put to the side, given up on or never had the opportunity to conceive. He feels he has developed a program from all angles in meeting youth and adults needs and wants. He has a high-level commitment to the world of athleticism and fitness, having been mentored and coached by highly educated coaches and trainers in the industry, being watchful and through the trial and errors he has done.
William is married to Shavon Marshall, who works alongside him as a Site Manager and Dance Instructor, but also a full-time employee at Mount Sinai. They have 4 children (Bryana, Emmanuel, Christopher and Nyomi) who are the core of the program. Their athleticism and drive is what motivates and pushes William daily. What he never had is what allows him to build a program that he and every youth & adult is also able to experience.
William is also a Freelancer of his own company Wilmar Studios and has his own apparel line InHouse tee. Occasionally, William also oil paints as a form of meditation.
