My name is Mark Smith and I am 53 Years Young. I always use the word ‘young, as my philosophy is that Age Is Just a Number…. Not an Excuse.
I believe that investing time and effort into your health and wellbeing will always be a positive step in the right direction, whatever your age and current level of fitness.
Fitness, Health and Nutrition have always been my passion since first picking up a dumbbell in my early twenties.
Over the years, I have taken part in Road Cycling & Cycling Time Trials, Mud Runs, 10k events, Half Marathons, Marathons and a few 40+ mile events. I love the challenge of the mountains and the great outdoors and in November 2016 I achieved my lifelong ambition of trekking to Everest Base Camp.
I currently take part in Gym X-Training events, train in the gym on a daily basis and I am always on the lookout for new challenges to keep pushing myself.
“I initially started following Marks Program to lose some weight and feel better within myself. Mark has taught me so many new exercises, is patient, very understanding and the results have been incredible with over a stone of weight lost since we started"
"Since working with Mark, I have realised the Phoenix motto "The body achieves what the mind believes" to be absolutely spot on.
Whilst setting tough and challenging programs, Mark's encouragement and unique banter have driven me to achieve what I thought was unachievable!
There is no better team to be part of than Team Phoenix!”
"Mark gave me my introduction back to the gym after nine years away from training, through the 2 programs that he set up for me. I now feel much healthier and fitter than I ever have and I am also on track to losing 2 stone after just 5 months.
His input has been excellent!”
