Hi, I'm Mark.


I was a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and I served from 2004-2008 with 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marines out of Hawaii. I did two combat tours, one to Afghanistan and one to Iraq.

Before that, I was just a regular kid. I ate too many oreos and played video games, and weighed about 130 lbs soaking wet.

So how did I train to become a US Marine? that's what this website is all about. I know exactly how to help regular kids develop the mental stamina and focus to become a Marine—one of the best things I've done in my life.

Inside you'll find insider details about Marine Boot Camp, workout tips, nutrition, and more.
