Île-du-Grand-Calumet native Marc Pieschke won first in the masters class and the open class during a bodybuilding competition, for the Quebec championship. Now living in Malartic in Abitibi, he explained his career to CHIP 101.9 and the reasons that led him to train.

At the age of 42, I weighed over 277 pounds. I have lost 117 pounds in 8 years without any surgery. I had pain everywhere, I didn’t feel well, that was really my main source of motivation.”
- Marc Pieschke

The 50-year-old continues his career, but over time sees himself more as a guide for people who want to take care of their bodies as well.

It’s not easy, it takes an iron discipline and the older you get, the harder it is. At the same time, I must say that I really enjoy helping others achieve their goals and I see myself in the future as a coach who can have students under his supervision.
- Marc Pieschke.
