Hi!, I’m Mark Carson, nick name SPLINTER.. I have held for over 25 years (yes the ninja rat himself) so I would be happy for you to call me Splinter, infact I insist on it!

About me: Been into sports from early childhood, olympic contender in gymnastics at age 11, pursued sports throughout my teenage life and adulthood. Took up Wado Kai Karate for 5 years.
Played handball for Milton Keynes UK and for Great Britain travelling to Israel to play there, as a visitor of their great country whose national sport is handball.
Joined Milton Keynes gridiron team MK Pioneers in my 20’s and we were national winners in 1994. Winning the division championships.
Moved to Australia in 1995 playing gridiron for WA before retiring.
Spent the next ten years in a high profile stressful job with lots of pressure gaining weight and pretty much an unhealthy diet, decided to conquer it by doing indoor beach volleyball with workmates and we won the division mixed group 2008 finals. This was a start of my unhealthy lifestyle change .
In 2010 due to career redundancy I decided to revisit my fitness career and took the Australian Institute of Fitness course and qualified Cert IV as a personal trainer. Joined Bodytech in Perth WA as a casual full time trainer for Denise Mazurek( now Curnow) Owner of Bodytech Denise A fantastic soul changing 1000s of lives for the better, my mentor and friend, honoured to have been with her for 5 years.

I pride myself on the many areas of expertise and have been challenged in the fitness arena to do the best I can to help, nurture and motivate people back to a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle.I did it for me now I want to do it for you!
What I love about fitness is the gratitude and exhilaration people show having accomplished their goals in the fitness journey realising it is not a chore but a lifestyle to a better way of life.
My areas of ability in training range from circuit training, resistance band fitness, a speciality of mine, cardio, stamina, endurance, multiple plyometric training and weekly challenges, motivating being my biggest passion.
Fitness is never easy to start with but with compassion willingness and personal goals and lots of effort to succeed, it can change your outlook, your mindset,your beliefs and your physical stance in life.
