Mark Campbell Owner, Motivational Speaker, Master Trainer and All Around Good Guy
My life was forever changed the day I sustained severe neck and back injuries and my arm was nearly severed in a car accident. The surgeon reluctantly agreed not to amputate, but warned it would not be functional. With enormous determination, I was able to rehabilitate my arm to half it's normal function but despite the barrage of pain medications, the condition of my neck and back continued to deteriorate. My doctor insisted I pursue fitness in addition to my other treatments, which seemed impossible considering I was already tired and in pain. Having never been in a gym before, I started with the treadmill. A personal trainer gave me information that became the tool I needed to take back my freedom and build self-confidence. Once I applied these tools, it changed my life.
I moved to Toronto for my job and got a membership at a studio gym that focused on personal training. I noticed that the development of those who worked with a trainer far exceeded those who didn't. No matter what the client's goals were, they achieved it faster; and I sought similar gratification! I enrolled in Canadian Fitness Professionals (Can-Fit-Pro) to become a personal trainer specialist. I discovered many complexities of the human body, the proper techniques for the desired results and information that can benefit each and every client and their individual goals. Achieving certification inspired me to take another step in the direction of health and fitness as a career – since I was so thrilled with the positive results training had on my own body.
With friends and family in Edmonton, I chose it as my home. I am now a PRO trainer and owner of two Marked Improvement Personal Fitness locations. I invite you to discover how fitness can change your life.
