I'm 23 years old and I've been overweight for as long as I can remember. This past year, my weight was at an all time high. I weighed 239 pounds and my BMI classified me as moderately obese. I had tried countless diets and exercise routines with little to no success and nothing that lasted long term.
After meeting Mark through the massage portion of his business, I was informed of his health coaching business. Learning about this came at a time when I was extremely frustrated and discouraged with my health and my appearance. I didn't look or feel healthy and was approaching being at risk for diabetes and hypertension.
I began working with Mark with very little hope that anything could work at this point but also being willing to try one last time.
Mark coached me through how to make my time at the gym more effective and helped me reach my goal of running my first 10k race. He also provided meal plan suggestions and nutritional coaching so that I was able to build a healthy diet. I was eating enough that I felt full and satisfied and finding how to eat things I like that were nutritional as well as enjoyable.
After 3 months of working with Mark, I have lost over 30 pounds and am well on my way to my goal weight. I'm working out regularly and training to run my next 10k at an even faster time.
Weight loss that works isn't easy and it isn't a quick fix. However, I'm keeping the weight off and continuing to lose while feeling and looking healthier than I ever have.
I strongly recommend Mark as a massage therapist and as a health coach to help you reach your goals and succeed in living a healthier, happier life!
