Aaron Marino (Alpha M) is an American male lifestyle blogger, fashion enthusiast, and fitness expert who has made it to the peak of fame through his expert advice on men’s fashion.
He has also been a part of many publications and guest appearances on radio programs and television nationally and locally, most notably on the ”Shark Tank” (an American reality television series which premiered on ABC) featuring his StyleSystem DVD collection.
He was born Aaron Marino on May 19, 1976, in the United States of America. At age 13, his mother gave him a fitness membership card that he claims changed his life.
Aaron attended college in West Virginia. While being there, Marino helped to pay for his schooling by cutting his colleagues’ hair.
After college, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia and started a nutrition shop with his partner in the business. For a short period of time, he sold illicit drugs out of the back.
In 2006, he launched Alpha M Image Consulting. He realized that there was a lack of resources and options for men to receive real-world advice and help in regards to their style, image, and grooming.
In the same year, he opened his M. Apparel clothing line. The cool thing is, he wears his M. Apparel clothes in most of his YouTube videos, so men (specifically men who are below average height) can get an idea of how they look and fit.
In 2008, Aaron opened a channel on YouTube (alpha m.) and started uploading videos providing guidance and counseling for men on grooming and style. His YouTube channel is one of the fastest-growing channels and currently has over 5.78 million subscribers.
There are some people who live under the impression that because he is a lifestyle expert, he must be gay. But, Aaron is not gay and there is no evidence to suggest that he is bisexual either.
In October 2015, Aaron responds to a gay question during a YouTube video by saying:
”Can a Gay be an Alpha Male?”
Marino further added all could be alpha males, however, it comes down to how well people can handle their character.
In 2007, Aaron Marino got married to Tracey Woodard Marino. Aaron met his wife for the first time in 2002. At the moment, Tracey Woodard Marino is working as the Corporate Marketing Director at NOVA Engineering and Environmental, LLC.

He has more than 385k on Instagram and 29k on Twitter. Furthermore, Aaron has 23k fans on a Facebook page.
Aaron works out two times per day as his core has to serve as a billboard for the FlexBelt (an electronic muscle stimulator which helps women and men tone their abs) he’s been paid to advertise.
