Hello, I'm Mark.

Hello and welcome to my site.

 

I believe that if “You change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” (Wayne Dyer)

My journey has been one of change. With change I have gained knowledge and understanding of fitness and wellbeing. It all began 11 years ago with a back operation due to an incorrect lifting technique at the gym.

Weight training began at a very young age for me while playing high-level basketball. Exhausted every day, being of a competitive nature I pushed my self to the limit, which sped up the chance of injury.

Another factor that came into play was the lack of nutritional knowledge to support my training and wellbeing. In my youth coaches were not trained regarding the importance of nutritional balance.

After my 9-month rehabilitation I returned to my training regime but did not feel 100%. My state of mind during this time was not very positive. I decided to take things into my own hands and start a course at the Australian institute of Fitness, which would then give me more understanding and awareness of the body’s needs. This gave me a qualification and the license to train clients in and out of a gym. Training became apart of everyday life and became involved in the bodybuilding scene.

There was something missing……

A number of years later my life changed. I changed the way I looked at things after a long European holiday with 7 of my friends. I came to the realization that I was not as healthy as I thought I was. Of course I was looking great but after a few blood tests I could sense something wasn’t right. All these supplements and food plans that all the gurus recommended were making myself and other people sick. I had enough. I was tired and frustrated seeing many doctors and health professionals and not finding a solution.

Again I decided to follow my own intuition.

I spent years researching through books, online and going to seminars. I also downloaded health and wellness podcasts and listened to multiple audiobooks. I also spent time with several Alternative practitioners. Through trial and error I learned not just about health and wellness in general I learned how to heal my self and make my mind and body well without DRUGS. I had come a long way but there is still more to learn, as you can never stop learning about your health and the connection between body and mind wellness. After all, this is what we are all searching for aren’t we?

My goal is to help as many people around the world as possible through health and wellness. Always have an open mind to a better way of being. It is possible for everyone. A quote from the one and only Sylvester Stallone, “It ain’t about how hard you hit It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.”

Cheers,
Mark
