The Low-Down On Markscheffel

Living Life in the People Business

Michael Markscheffel is amongst other things an inspirational personal fitness and scuba diving coach who originates from the UK.

A father of two grown up boys, he dedicates working days to his fabulous clients, offering exceptional fitness and scuba coaching to anyone willing to try – in return for wisdom, good gossip and the going rate.

His love affair with diving began commercially in the eighties when he donned the required equipment, had his hard hat bolted down and was ceremoniously dumped off the shipyard jetty for his inauguration dive – the pursuit of helping others to achieve greater levels of physical fitness and body transformation came a little later following a cry of help from a best friend.

A true believer in ‘you’ll always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take’ Michael’s latest mission is persuading potential scuba divers that you really don’t need to be an Olympic standard swimmer to enjoy the underwater world.

….and in his own words “always remember to stretch!”

"Thank so much for your kind and very patient instruction on the Open Water Diving Course. I was very nervous about diving and there were a few times that I was ready to give up. But you kept me calm and helped me achieve all the skills I needed to pass the course!!! I am so grateful to you because it is another world under water and I love diving so much!!! "

"As a first time diver, I was really lucky to complete my Open Water Certificate with one to one tuition in a fun and friendly environment. Michael’s experienced diving background made me feel safe and confident in the water and I received a lot of attention and encouragement. His expertise gained from a varied career, including commercial diving, meant I gained valuable advice and help for the future. Most importantly, his warm and funny personality meant I had a lot of fun! "

"I had not dived for 2 years and was a bit tense on my first dive (carried 10 kgs) at Perhentian Islands but Michael’s experience and calmness made me feel at ease and under his guidance I managed to control my breathing which resulted in using only 5 kgs on my 5th and last dive. I can highly recommend Michael as an Instructor be it for new courses or refresher courses like in my case."
