She also hosts “Carnivore Fitness Seniors 50+,” a private FB group dedicated to helping seniors live and look their best eating meat and salt.

Mark is another MEAT-BASED online coach who specializes in transforming women's health with the Carnivore Diet. After connecting in the "podcast world" we were SHOCKED at how similar we are in our approach to nutrition, beliefs, and purpose!

After getting to know each other over a Whats-App call to bounce ideas off of each other and help each other become better coaches, I realized how much his understanding of women's health far surpassed mine! We try to talk for an hour 4-5 times per week because as Proverbs 27:17 teaches, "Iron sharpens iron, and a man sharpens his friend's face." (Or perhaps more commonly translated "one man sharpens another") 

This gives me an opportunity to run questions about my clients that I want another set of eyes on their overall health, and Mark the opportunity to ask muscle and fat-loss questions (although I pull his opinion on those subjects often as well!) 

Furthermore, as of a couple months ago, Mark purchased his plane tickets to fly in for the NPC Northwest Championships here up the road in Auburn, WA this year--that's right--the same show as my wife Coach Taylor who will also be using the same meat-based competition prep I used for my shows in 2022. This just goes to show how incredible of a coach he is because he knows it's something that's going to inspire and help his clients around the same age see what they can change aesthetically when they implement the right nutrition and exercise lifestyle that is appropriate for them. 

Mark can be contacted for coaching applications and consultations through his website (CLICK HERE).
