Meet Your Coach

Hey future firefighter, my name is Markell Williams and I will be your coach/mentor that will guide you through your journey to becoming a firefighter. I am a former career firefighter from Arizona. I'm also a former collegiate student-athlete from Sacramento State where I played football. I graduated with a degree in Sociology back in fall 2013 and began my firefighter journey in spring/summer 2014. I've volunteered as a fire cadet, endured the grind of the firefighter testing process and had a lot of success. I was sworn into the fire service in summer 2015 where I officially became a firefighter. I was a firefighter/EMT and specialized as a hazmat/technical rescue technician. I also was a mentor for our fire cadet program through the department. Throughout my career I've coached and mentored many candidates that went on to become successful firefighters. I am a certified personal trainer with a specialization in sports nutrition and strength and conditioning. My mission is to help develop as many undeniable fire candidates for the fire service that I can. I remember what it was like pursuing the career; the uncertainty, the fear, the confusion, the unknown. That is why I've developed this program to help combat those obstacles. My job is to help shorten the learning window of what it takes to be successful in the firefighter testing process. I'm excited to help you develop your skills so that you have a higher probability of making the top ranks. I will see you on the other side. Good Luck Future Firefighter!

Testimonials

“Markell helped me with my interview and helped get me to where I wanted to be. There's literally something for everybody training with Markell. He's going to help you find what obstacles you need to overcome and he's going to make a game plan to help you get through those obstacles. But if you are not willing to help yourself and if you are not motivated enough to put in the time and effort, then Markell can only help you so much. If you are serious about getting into the fire service, then Firefighter Ambitions Program is definitely something you should look into. It is a Great Program. You will not regret joining.”

FIREFIGHTER

COLTON OTT

“Markell sees things in you and brings them out. Regarding the interview, he always adapted to my style. He adapts to your needs and gives you the plan best fit for you. The Program is worth every single penny for the amount of effort Markell not only puts into his Program, but the effort he puts into you and his coaching. The Program is way worth it! The program is very effective. You just have to give 100% because the Program will give you 100%.”

FIREFIGHTER

JT LAND

“Markell gave me the foundation on what Fire Departments are expecting of me as a candidate both physically and mentally. Markell got me ready for the demands of the job and the Fire Academy. Markell is an awesome trainer. I feel more confident about my abilities now than I did before training with Markell. I would hands down recommend Markell's services to anybody who is trying to join the fire service. What really sets him apart is that he truly cares about the fire service and about the people that are trying to go in and make the fire service a better place.”
