Marcell LaGrone has worked in the fitness and human services for over 10 years as a Psychosocial Rehabilitation Worker, youth counselor, and Gang/Drug/Alcohol Prevention Program Supervisor. He is pursuing his dream of incorporating his love for helping others into his other love of fitness. Marcell holds numerous certifications from a slew of fitness institutes including Boxing Fitness Instructor certification from the Boxing Fitness Institute, Group Fitness Instructor certification from Ace Fitness and Sports Psychology Coach certification through the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association, and his Personal Training Certification from Action Fitness.
Marcell discovered his affinity for personal growth and progression during a successful football career, something that is almost genetic in the LaGrone household. Following in the footsteps of both his father and older brother, Marcell excelled as a cornerback at Lincoln High School, grabbing the attention of collegiate football programs across the nation. It was Idaho State who end up landing the then 6’1, 195-pound strong safety where Marcell made the Big Sky All-Conference team in 2004 after a strong sophomore season which included a 25 yard pick six, the first of his collegiate career.
After his college football career came to a close, Marcell chose to join his family in Reno, Nev. and pursue his passion for helping people better themselves. “I love people, I love progress and I love being able to help people reach their goals. There’s nothing like watch someone grow and progress right before your eyes, its amazing.” said LaGrone. Not only does Marcell get people to reach their fitness goals, but he understands that fitness ia about physical growth. “Working on yourself and reaching your goals is a therapeutic experience; you feel more confident and reach a peace of mind that can’t be achieved elsewhere. I love being able to help people reach that place.”

Mello is here to count your reps, race you down the turf, add some extra weight to your sled push, assist when some love is needed, or to start an intense soccer game! Mello is a key part to our ReDirect Family and knows every person who enters by the smell of their shoes!
ReDirect Athletics and ReDirect Youth Outreach & Boxing was founded in June 2018 by Marcell & Tisha LaGrone. Their goal was to make the gym a safe/ positive place for everyone, youth or adult, who sets foot inside its walls. A huge piece of that was incorporating their own children, Jayden, Jordyn, & Nya, into the organization and truly starting the ReDirect Family!
The LaGrone Family hopes that they are able to impact each life that comes in contact with their programs and ReDirect Family.
