Why Mark you might ask, why employ a trainer who lives in an entirely different state?
Well, I’m a firm believer if you want to be the best that you can be then surround yourself with the best, this also applies to life partners, friends and colleagues. Being in another state is purely logistical and where there is a will there is a way!
I was looking for a coach who would give me a no nonsense approach, I wasn’t looking for a friend – I wanted to learn as much as I could and fast. I was looking for not just training advice but supplementation and diet – I wanted to put on muscle and fast, I had only been weight training for 12 months and was looking at competing again 6 months after my first season of competing.
I discovered my love for this sport and competing quite by accident, my initial stage debut was not a planned one and to experience success in this sport took me by surprise, firmly cementing my desire to continue to grow and learn and to return to the stage bigger and better each time.
Enter “Maximus Mark” – Coach to my inspirational Mentor Janet Kane – Simply she is currently Australia’s best female natural figure competitor – with Mark’s guidance and her champion attitude they are unbeatable – so the BEST in the biz!
I initially contacted Mark via facebook (Hmmm, what did we do before facebook!) and booked a brain-picking session with him via Skype. The initial consultation was bang on, I got instant answers to health related problems and within an hour I was well on my way to eating and sleeping more and training less!
I want the most bang for my buck being a busy mother of three, the eldest thirteen and the youngest one – this relates to both time and finances. Mark has taught me how to do this by supplementing correctly and training smarter.
I love competing however I don’t want to be defined by the person you see on the stage. Mark has educated me to look at my goals differently with great perspective – health and wellness being the most important. I no longer know nor care how much I weigh, infact when competing last in June at the ANB Asia Pacific and the INBA All Female Classic, I did not weigh myself once other than when Mark did my biosignature on the few occasions I flew to Melbourne to see him – Mark has shown me that weight is no longer of importance to me , he has helped me realise that I am strong, fit and healthy – I am a healthy person that makes healthy choices and inspires others to do the same.
I continue to grow and learn from Mark and can’t wait to see where the future takes us – TEAM ENTERPRISE!
1st place in the masters at the Asia Pacific and third place in the Open at the All female Classic!
