Journey of Brian Mark: From a drug addict to fitness champion

Many athletes have been open about their drug and alcohol use and getting sober. The story of Brian Mark is no exception. From hitting rock bottom to establishing a million-dollar business, this thirty-year-old entrepreneur’s life was no less than a bumpy ride. Born in Calgary, Alberta, Brian’s mother had him at the age of 17, and they had to move a lot because of money problems. At the age of 16, Brian Mark got addicted to drinking, drugs and partying. It seemed that there was no way out, but he knew how to overcome extreme obstacles.

Brian’s intense fitness and entrepreneurial journey may not have happened if he hadn’t tackled his drug and alcohol addiction first. He says he fell into partying, drugs and alcohol from age 16 to 24, destroying his personal and professional life. Like every addict, Brian Mark’s addiction started with occasional use and soon became an inseparable part of his life. When he realized his serious drug addiction, Brian decided to turn his life around. Quitted cold turkey and began replacing substance abuse with fitness competitions. Brian won first place and became the overall champion at the Leigh Brandt Muscle Classic and had notable performances in many contests he participated in.  

Giving up the addiction was the most difficult part for Brian. He was overweight as a youngster but to achieve something big, one has to make strong calls. Despite not having an official college degree, Brian crossed the million mark before he turned 29 and made over 10 million dollars in revenue before turning 30. All of this happened with sheer dedication, focus and an ambition to help others. As Brian said, “Once I turned my life around, I developed a newfound sense of confidence and wanted to share that with others. I became a coach for others, and I was very good at it. So good that my business scaled to $54,000 a month.”

Being associated with the fitness industry for nine years, Brian knew about the struggles that rookie fitness trainers have to face when they begin their careers. Making money as a fitness coach is not an easy task, especially if you don’t know how to get new clients. Brian decided to help such fitness coaches to scale their businesses and make money as he does.
