Marty Carpenter is the territory manager for the western coast of Florida, stretching from northern Pinellas County, extending south to Port Charlotte.
The son of a Marine, Marty was born in Cherry Point, NC. Shortly after his father returned from the Vietnam War and was honorably discharged, he got a job in “Corporate America.” Marty’s family bounced around from state to state before calling Florida their home; Marty was 9 years old. He grew up playing many sports from the age of four. As a senior in high school, after being named 1st Team All-Conference in football and the county defensive player of the year, he was offered many opportunities to play football in college. After deciding to forgo the opportunities, he chose to stay home and continue his studies locally.
Getting into the fitness industry originally happened by pure accident. But soon after he did, he developed a love and passion for everything the fitness industry has to offer. Marty began his career as a sales representative for a fitness club. Three months in, he was thrust into a General Manager role. His career really began to take off. During that time he was promoted up through the ranks managing a number of facilities. Little did he know that he would meet his future wife at one of their work functions. After a short engagement they got married and decided to start a family. Marty’s career was very demanding and he was never home. Shortly after their first daughter was born, he decided to step away from the health club industry so he could spend more time with his family. He then entered into the distributor side of the business. Marty has stated “Working at FITREV not only allows me to remain in the fitness industry, but more importantly it allows me to be a devoted husband and father and to be home for my wife and kids. I simply love what I do!” One of Marty’s favorite quotes is “choose a Job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Marty currently calls Tampa, FL his home, along with his wife Amy and their two daughters, Isabelle and Alaina.
