Here are some of his tips for success…

 —Consistency: “I work out five to six days a week in order to keep my energy up. I don’t always feel like going, but it keeps my body and mind sharp.”

 —Circuit Training: Mix up your gym routine so that you are always doing different things.  It helps keep you engaged, and it may actually help you burn more fat.

 —Yoga: Marlon says it’s a perfect way to loosen your muscles and get centered for the day.

 —Fitness Videos: Marlon actually uses these. He’s been known to use BeachBody, Insanity and P90X to keep strong while he’s on the road.

 Marlon says he will continue to push himself into bigger, and more arduous roles, including producing and directing. And from the looks of it, his body will easily keep up with ride.
