I grew up playing sports, volleyball, track, and co-ed football. Competition was in my blood! As I grew up, I lost that competition edge, I started to live the ``adult`` life of working and making a living. All that ``Adulting`` left a lot of opportunities for boredom, and with boredom comes FOOD! I got into fitness to create some competition in my life, with myself. That turned into competing on stage with a lot of other girls. Competing was fun and I was successful at it, but it also does some damage to a girl's self image. It quickly became hard for me to look at myself and see that 12% was not fat, but when you've been 9% on stage before, anything above that is hard to accept. I came to the conclusion, and not quickly I might add, that competing was not for me anymore. My mental and physical health was far more important. Now my focus as a trainer is to shape the minds of women and men to help them achieve their fitness goals. But most importantly, achieving their goals while enjoying life, family, friends, and themselves! I encourage a balance between fitness and life... The Fitness Life!
As a strength athlete, Mark had an amazing 2016 wherein he broke the Idaho squat record twice in a single competition and then a couple months later went on to secure a place at the United States Strongman National Championships which will be his third-ever strongman show.
With a combination of education and application Mark has coached not only himself, but also his clients to success across a diverse set of goals from football, to cycling, strength sports, or just wanting to get healthier and more trim.
His honest, no-gimmick approach to training sets him apart from an industry that is sadly full of tricks and tactics designed to keep people paying rather than getting them results.
Mark is both a competitor and a coach, at the absolute heart of it.
