Coaching History & Philosophy
Mark is a USA Track and Field certified coach and both a certified RRCA Certified Level 1 Coach and a RRCA Certified Race Director. Mark began his coaching career with the South Bay Runners Club (RRCA & USATF) in Manhattan Beach, California, where he coaches track and marathon training practice.

In 2016, TEAM PAWS, a national charity selected Mark as their training coach overseeing their 550 plus marathon athletes nationwide for the Chicago and New York City Marathons. 
In 2017, Conqur Endurance, the owner of the Los Angeles Marathon, selected Mark as head Coach to overseer the LA Road Runners official training program for the Los Angeles Marathon.

Mark goal over the course of his running career has been to inspire other athletes. He believes training is 30% percent physical and 70% percent mental. It is his job to define the objective of his athletes, analyze their results and provide constructive feedback. 

As a coach, he provides the athlete with this expertise by explaining the “why” with the goal of empowering the athlete to train optimally. He tries to instill the power of belief, so when his athletes are truly tested, they believe in their ability to accomplish their goal. Mark believes this approach will sustain them in their darkest moments when they want to quit, but won’t!

There is a proven and repeatable path to success and in this show that's exactly what Drew teaches you how to do. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. You don't have to start from scratch, if there's something you want to achieve someone has done it before or someone has done something similar in another industry.

All you have to do is follow the path to success that is clearly paved for you. In this show we'll go over just a few simple steps to help you get there.

For example the very first thing you need to do is decide what it is you want. Sounds too simply, no? The fact is, you won't be able to follow any other steps if you don't have the first one down.

After you decide you come up with a plan, after the plan you find an accountability partner, mentor and or coach.

From there we need to follow the path, stick with the plan and what may be the most challenging, we need patience. We need to give our plan time to develop which almost always takes longer than expected.

Ariel Garten is probably one of the most interesting people you will meet. She is a Neuroscientist, psychotherapist,  mom, former fashion designer, and the female founder and visionary of an amazing and highly successful tech start-up Muse.

Muse tracks your brain during meditation to give you real-time feedback on your meditation, guiding you into the "zone" and solving the problem most of us have when starting a meditation practice- letting you know when you are doing it right. 

When she is not reading brains (literally) or investing in, inspiring and advising other start-ups and women in biz, you can find her on stages across the world, from TED to MIT to SXSW, inspiring people to understand that they can accomplish anything they want by learning what goes on in their own mind.

Ariel is also the co-host of the Untangle Podcast.
