John Mark Seelig’s experiences and education are expansive and strange at times, just ask him. But, sports and training have always been a passion. As a long time raft guide, ski patroller and mountain biker his body finally started shutting down. After 7 knees surgeries and 2 hand surgeries, he re-discovered the gym as a training ground for his true love…the Outdoors. He was able to overcome his injuries and excel to a level he never expected. Becoming a member of the US Men’s Rafting Team was just the beginning. John Mark has been involved in fitness since 2000. Early on, his education and experience was influenced by Gym Jones, Crossfit Level 1, Crossfit Mobility, Manic Training and even yoga. In the more recent years, he has developed his skills as a coach through attending a Starting Strength Seminar and working with a coach through Barbell Medicine. Dr. Jordan Feigenbaum, who has become John Mark’s coach, continues to influence his methods and practices. Whether it be training for an outrigger canoe race in the ocean, attempting to break a speed run through the Grand Canyon in under 36 hours, or raft racing internationally, John Mark applies his own training experiences into his gym programming.
