We all want to live a healthy life, however we are confronted with barriers to achieving our goals.
1. We are busy, and finding time to get to the gym is difficult.
2. It’s expensive to have a gym membership and personal training.
3. It’s confusing because there is so much information out there.
People need easy to follow, simple, flexible workout routines. We’ve partnered with Mark Milburn, a pioneer in Adventure Fitness to make this happen. We will share tips, knowledge, workout plans and videos to help everybody live a healthy life full of adventure!
Mark’s passion for hiking and outdoor adventure was cultivated from day one, growing up near the Rocky Mountains. At aged 17, he began a successful career as a professional model – a job that took him around the world for the following few years.
He is the founder and owner of Catalyst Waterfront, recently voted one of the top fitness facilities in North America by Notable Magazine. He has put in more than 12,000 hours with clients – including professional and Olympic athletes.
Mark has also spent the last five summers in Switzerland and France coordinating an outdoor curriculum for children, aiming to give them an appreciation of wilderness and outdoor adventures.
Mark’s biggest reward is the ability to enable people to transform their bodies and their lives. Mark loves his job, sharing “My greatest reward for everything I do is when I am able to take someone and build confidence in their body. Allowing them to enjoy the outdoor world and give them a new experience they never imagined was possible,”
