A husband and a father of four, Mark leads a busy life. He says he was doing pretty well with his weight and his health, until he suffered a back injury a few years ago.
He's never been able to get going at full speed since then. Now that he's starting to feel some of the effects of his extra weight (joint pain, sleep apnea, and high blood pressure), he's beginning to feel an urgency about getting in shape. He has four active kids, and he wants to come alongside them and stay in the game.
It won't be easy. In additon to his family responsibilities, Mark is assistant principal at South Doyle Middle School, and a PhD student at the University of Tennessee. But he's ready for the challenge and he's ready to make the ultimate investment in his future and the future of his family.
