Mark is a strong believer that the lifestyle choices we make outside the gym affect our fitness and health as much as the decisions we make inside the gym. In other words, he truly believes in the METHOD 165 philosophy: there are 168 hours in a week, if you spend three of them with your trainer, the other 165 are up to you and it’s your responsibility to make the right choices to keep fit and healthy.

Mark specializes in functional strength, endurance, conditioning, durability, weight loss, muscle gain, performance diet & nutrition, and injury prevention through a strong, healthy body.

Mark has been a competitive athlete and fitness enthusiast for over 35 years. He was a two-time Hawaii high school state track and field champion and continued his athletic career into college and beyond. Continuing his passion for competitive athletics, he has trained in Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, and hiked to the summit of the continental United States’ highest mountain (Mt. Whitney) five times.
