Mark is the owner of Provost Personal Training, a very successful personal training and exercise psychology studio in Wenham, Massachusetts. Mark specializes in a 3-tier approach to optimal living: Emotional Prosperity, sound nutrition practices, and a well-rounded fitness program. He believes that all 3 are necessary to live our best life with an emphasis on Emotional Prosperity. True success in Mark’s eyes is not about having big muscles and running 5 minute miles; he believes that true success is rooted in self-love where we become our own best friend. This is our greatest challenge in life. Once we accept, have compassion for and love ourselves, we begin to fulfill our destiny. Nothing records the effects of a sad life so graphically as the human body. Mark’s 3-tier approach creates joy, peace and a healthier mind and body. He passionately believes that self-esteem is the immune system of the conscious mind. Mark is currently writing a book on Emotional Prosperity.
