Mark is the founder and owner of PowerStrength Training Systems in Grand Rapids, Michigan. At 24-years old, Mark founded PowerStrength in 2011 as a hungry, inspired coach who wanted to provide something special for his hometown. After years of inspiration from Joe DeFranco and James Smith, Mark attended his first CPPS certification in 2012. Since then he has completed every CPPS certification available and has attended 10 certifications in total! With his simplistic, blue-collar mentality Mark routinely helps athletes go from sideline to starter and helped hundreds of athletes to achieve their goals in and out of the gym.
What Mark is most proud of is the all-star team of coaches he has the privilege to serve at PSTS. 15 PSTS coaches to date have been CPPS certified. PSTS delivers small group personal training and coaching to athletes ages 10+, adults ages 38-60, and consulting programs to local high school athletic programs to continue to positively influence how the Grand Rapids-area approaches long-term athletic development.
PSTS currently operates out of two facilities in the Grand Rapids area.
