METABOLIC REBOOT: Our Premiere Program featuring Amazing results through the Scientific Integration of Nutrition, Proper Exercise and Mindset Training. This program is perhaps the most integrative approach to Health and Fitness ever. It is about Change. Recreating your Metabolism and yourself by Transforming your Body, Mindset and Lifestyle to become a Better and Healthier You. These Concepts Align Perfectly with that of the Phoenix…which embodies the ideas of recreating and reinventing yourself. The Metabolic Reboot will take you on a fantastic journey of discovering the importance of balancing Proper Nutrition, Appropriate Stress Load (Exercise) and Adequate Recovery (Mindset/Meditation). We call this ASAR. Nutrition: There are a lot of misconceptions about nutrition which have been fostered by all the various “fad diets” over the years. The Metabolic Reboot helps to dispel these misconceptions and teaches us how to return to a healthy and natural view of food and the importance of fueling our bodies correctly. ASAR: The Exercise routines begin with just 9 minutes per day (YES!! 9 minutes/day!!) and gradually builds throughout the program. An emphasis on teaching proper technique for our bodies, referred to as “Bio-Movements”, is a hallmark of Mark’s training style and educational background in Bio-Mechanics. The Program is rounded out with Meditation/Recovery to maximize Results and set us on a Path towards a Healthier Lifestyle.
CORE CONDITIONING: Let us help you take your Fitness, Sport or Activity (athletic or otherwise) to the Next Level. Balance, Speed and Power are All Combined in this Incredible Program to Improve Performance in any Sport or Activity…everything from Golf to Team Sports, Sailing to Hiking and Climbing, Racket Sports to Martial Arts Competition! Completing this Challenging program will make you Feel Better, Feel Stronger and Perform Better! It is the Perfect combination of developing Core Strength and Stability with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). The Program is designed to improve performance of the body for any activity, with many of the exercises modifiable to address Sport/Activity specific needs. Mark has helped many High School athletes transition into College Athletics over the years and has even helped several athletes into their respective professional sports… Including helping Mark win a few Grand-Champion trophies of his own. This Program is both Fun and Challenging!
GOLF CONDITIONING: A spinoff of the Core Conditioning Program, this one is developed specifically for the avid Golfer. Whether for Leisure, or if you are a Semi-Pro or Pro , this Program helps you develop your most important piece of equipment…YOU!

HEALTHY BACK: Whether Chronic or Acute… Lower Back Pain, Mid-Back Pain, Shoulder, Neck, and Hip Pain… can all become a thing of the Past with our Biomechanically Based approach to Restoring Posture and Functionality throughout the Body. Combined with both education and experience in the field…as well as the personal experience of a Ruptured Disc at the base of his own Spine, Mark developed this program so as never to relive that experience again. During recovery, and discussions with both his surgeon and physical therapist, Mark realized that this Program would be an Amazing Asset in helping as many people as possible prevent the need for surgery, compromised movement or life with chronic back pain. There are many people on the Eastern Shore today who are Moving Freely and without Pain as a result of going through the Healthy Back Program.
We have Several other Programs available and can explore Options with you during your Consultation and Visit.

With so many options and “diet plans” floating around today, it is easy to become lost or even misinformed as to the best approach towards our Nutrition. It’s not always about Weight-Loss, it’s about eating Supportively for Improved Strength, Muscle Tone and a Better Metabolism.
Grounded in an Organic/Natural Foods Approach, our Nutrition Plans and Supplements are chosen to Support our Body’s Natural Metabolism and Improve our overall Health!
Having been in this Industry for over 30 years, I can attest to the fact that I have personally tried every plan from Atkins to the Zone Perfect Diet! You name it…Mediterranean, South Beach, prefabbed meal replacements… I have done it, and I have never counseled a client to try anything that I have not been willing to do myself. Eating for your Metabolism is by far the Best concept that I have ever come across! The best part is that it is versatile to whatever goals you have, whatever outcomes you desire! The Circadian Nutrition Phases (developed by my Mentor and Friend Phil Kaplan) allows us to design your Nutritional needs based around the type of workout protocol that you are following. If you are eating Metabolically, we can easily adjust Protein intake for Muscle building, Carbohydrate intake for Fat Release and Burn, and Intermittent Fasting/Feasting for Detox. After many years of trying Supplements and Vitamins of every kind, I have determined that there are 2 lines of supplements that I am willing to put my reputation behind.
ISOTONIX is another amazing Vitamin and Supplement line with the Versatility to Target Specific vitamins and nutrients to add to your bodies needs. The dehydrated supplements mix easily with water and absorb into your system more efficiently that any pills! Some generalized Sample Packs are available upon request; however, a consult is needed to better understand your body’s needs.
For ANY of your Nutritional needs, Set up a consult Today! Let us Help you start your Journey to a Happier and Healthier you!
