Growing up in Santa Rosa, Mark was always involved in sports. In High School he wrestled, played baseball, and soccer. Once he went to college, he started to play Rugby, winning Rookie of the Year his first year out on the pitch. Passionate about the outdoors, Mark discovered long distance trail running later in life and competed in many races, including the Ohlone 50k. Along the way, Mark always found time to Coach and enjoyed many years coaching his kids soccer and baseball teams.
In 2011, Mark started CrossFit and found the combination of disciplines to be fun and challenging. Mark wanted to give back to the Diablo community which was so beneficial to him and started Coaching in 2014. Mark’s mission is to promote “sustainable CrossFitting” so that members can enjoy Diablo for years to come!
