“Whole Body and Mind Approach”
My Lifestyle Medicine Coaching and Education involves the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as progressive and flexible Whole Food, Plant-Based diet, exercise, sleep, mindful stress perception, healthy relationships, alcohol moderation and Tabacco cessation, and other non-drug modalities to prevent, treat and often times reverse the lifestyle-related chronic diseases that are all to prevalent.
The approach uses Mindfulness, Food Choices, Activity and Environmental to help people who have previously been unsuccessful with diet and exercise plans.
This whole-body-and-mind approach is also supportive for people battling addiction or in recovery; those with ADD; those with anxiety or stress disorders; and even those who are satisfied with their bodies and mental health but wish to make greater progress toward reaching life goals. Because clients are guided by an executive chef, certified personal trainer and certified wellness coach, you're getting three coaches in one, all maximizing your personal success.
Classes & Programs
3 Month Lifestyle Medicine Coaching Program
I have been working with Mark all through chemotherapy, radiation and now a fractured ankle. He has customized plans as my needs have changed. You know those people who you wonder "how did I survive without them?" Mark is that for me! I recommend anyone talking to Mark about your needs to get back on track or on track for the first time!
Mark is fantastic! Not only is he an incredible person, but his approach to working on the physical and mental side of health was very important to me. The group environment was positive, supportive and fun. I felt challenged and re-charged through HIIT training and goal setting. Ending each session with meditation left me feeling positive and relaxed. So glad to have met Mark and been involved in his program.

Coaching is not giving advice. Coaching is your discovery of what you truly desire, S.M.A.R.T intentions and overcoming the obstacles holding you back!
