At the age of 6 Mark had an early start in training when his dad bought him his first set of weights. Later he tried martial arts and eventually at the age of 15 joined a nearby boxing gym. He was fortunate enough to learn from influential coaches that taught him a wide range of styles and skills. Now 20 years later he's passing those techniques & tips along to his clients to help them improve their fitness & athletic performance with boxing.
Marks passion for fitness & helping others led him to get his first Personal Trainer Certification in 2006. He remains a constant student & is always learning new training methods that he can incorporate into his clients training programs. He believes that there is no single best way for everyone to get results. There is only the way that works for you personally and he's here to help you find it.

From a young age, Vinnie has always had a passion for training. At the age of 7, he took up various martial arts including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Tae Kwon Do, and Muay Thai, which he continued to practice for 12 more years. After struggling to find a college career path that best suited him, Vinnie took some time off to find himself, which is how he discovered ACE (American Council on Exercise). At the age of 24, Vinnie became an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. During his time as a PT, he became the manager of a commercial gym, which helped him better understand the ins and outs of the fitness industry. Shortly after, Vinnie decided to become an ACE Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist in order to help clients achieve an even greater understanding of their personal health and wellness. Vinnie strives to help clients understand the science behind the training, and to help them learn how to make lifestyle changes that are sustainable year-round.
