Marcel Salazar


My name is Marcel Salazar and I am a Physical Therapist by training but have worked in the health industry since graduating in 2005 from Sports Rehabilitation and Injury Prevention BSc (Honours) Degree.

I spent time during my degree working in the UK with a high profile physiotherapist in Athletics (Chris Allen of Battersea park) and in the US in the University College of San Diego, which had a fantastic rehabilitation and sports department which provided on site therapists for all of the collegiate athletes.

This experience allowed me to work with athletes of varying disciplines ranging from football, to softball to volleyball. Each presenting with their own unique injuries and imbalances of which it was my (our) job to manage and improve injuries as well as prevention in future. On the conclusion of my degree I underwent an additional diploma for strength and conditioning.

About Marcel - Physical Therapist


As a professional therapist, I have extensive experience in business and management, having started my own company in North Greater London after graduation. Despite its initial growth and success, I felt the need for further learning and development in these areas. I decided to close the business and pursue my goal of continuing professional development (CPD) in business.

I was fortunate enough to be selected as General Manager for Kieser Training, where I gained valuable skills and a deeper understanding of the importance of musculoskeletal training for overall health and well-being. In this role, I was responsible for all aspects of daily operations, including recruitment, training, marketing, and finance.

After five years of employment, I felt that there was more I could do to provide a complete and comprehensive service for customers. With this in mind, I developed the concept of Strong For Life and, along with my family, moved to southern Spain in 2017. I established my therapy business in June of the following year, and since then it has continued to grow and expand.

Today, Strong For Life offers home visits and is established in a private clinical setting with a breathtaking sea view in Calahonda. The future looks bright for our business as we continue to build our team of practitioners, with my wife, Ausra, joining as a personal trainer.

As a healthcare professional with a passion for helping others, I have always sought a fulfilling and impactful career. After earning my Master’s degree in Pharmacy 17 years ago, I spent years dedicated to the field, gaining invaluable experiences that shaped me into the person I am today. However, despite my love for the profession, I found myself feeling restricted and at odds with my holistic approach to wellness. So, with the unwavering support of my husband and family, I took the bold step to leave the comfort of the familiar and embark on a new journey in the world of fitness.

Fitness has always played a crucial role in my life, serving as my anchor during trying times, especially during and after my three pregnancies. It was through my own struggles with regaining confidence in my post-baby body that I discovered the transformative power of strength training.

I was challenged by my husband to enter a fitness competition, and the experience of discipline, hard work, and self-discovery was life-changing. I learned the importance of consistency and discipline in achieving optimal health and well-being, especially for women.

Now, I am on a mission to share my knowledge and inspire as many women as possible to prioritize their health, mind, and body. I want to empower women to take control of their wellness and live their best lives. Join me on this journey of self-love and discovery, and let’s elevate our health and well-being together!
