See what the Beast's clients have to say about his professional strength & conditioning training.
After four months of recovering from cervical disc surgery, I found myself weak and out of shape. Mark carefully picked workouts and exercises that would be safe for my newly repaired discs and with just a few weeks of training with him, I was stronger and leaner than I had ever been before. Each week that passed, I was setting personal bests for myself. I feel transformed. My shoulders are broader and my chest & arms are more defined. THANK YOU Mark, for everything youve done for me!!

I'm the mother of a 16 year old son. I'd like to recommend an outstanding personal trainer, Mark Featherstone, that my husband and I hired to train our son with weights this past summer and fall. Our son, Mike, gained not only a huge boost of physical strength during his training, but more importantly, a wealth of self-confidence. Mark trained Mike in the proper use of the weights as well as valuable techniques and tips when lifting. Mark pushed Mike to work harder and consistently. I won't say it was easy, it shouldn't be, but the gains Mike achieved made the training well worth the effort! Due to the high school wrestling season, Mike has had to take a break from his training with Mark. Mike can't wait to get back in the gym and continue growing and learning from a true professional. My husband and I give Mark the highest of recommendations. His knowledge and compassion combined make Mark a truly wonderful trainer!

I began training with Mark to strengthen my left knee after knee surgery. I am an active Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai and Mixed Martial Arts Instructor and have found working with Mark has increased my strength and endurance and is also an important part of my training to stay in top shape. Through Mark, I have found a new passion for lifting. Thank you Mark!

After witnessing some of the boot camp classes Mark taught at Gracie Fitness, I decided to join in on a Fighter's Intervals training class one Wednesday afternoon with a few of the team's fighters. Needless to say, I haven't pushed that hard, if ever, for as long as I can remember. With sweat dripping, almost quitting, and muscles completely fatigued, Mark helped me push through and finish the workout. I worked out muscles I forgot I even had! I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Mark and look forward to future interval and boot camp classes with him!

I drive an hour and a half each way to work with him because he has proven time and time again that he is the BEST. Every time we work together he sets me up with a program, teaches and motivates me to the point that I continue seeing gains for months after we stop our private sessions. Then when I plateau or change my goals, we meet a few more weeks and he shoots me off to another few months of CRAZY gains. He has helped me achieve every goal that I came to him with and taught me what I need to succeed to keep pushing myself to goals that I never before imagined possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He doesn't just stand over you and tell you what to do, he TEACHES you what you need to continuously grow even after your time together.

2 weeks into the camp with the Beast, I was amazed with the results!! If anyone doubts it.... I will pay for a camp with Mark Featherstone if in two weeks you don't notice the results. You don't need to pay me back!!! That's all!!!!

I have had the blessing if working with Mark now my last 3 fight camps with June 12th making this 4th. Since our training started he sat me down and asked me what my expectations were and what I was looking for in particular. I said I wanted power, raw power, strength that lasted throughout championship rounds and stamina that my opponents couldn't compare to. Well needless to say my last 3 fights combined have lasted a total of 2mins and 36 secs. What I asked, he delivered through combined efforts. This is not something that happens with any trainer. He designed a specific workout routine around a schedule that worked for myself being a fulltime worker. A routine that has proved itself definitive. This man has helped play one of the strongest roles in my recent fight career and a huge part of my recent success is due to his mastermind. Don't believe me, just watch my fight history and see for yourself. The proof is in the pudding.

I have been lifting/working out for several years dating back to college. I have dealt with athletic trainers for hockey, coaches and peers telling me to lift this way or lift that way. I had always listened to them b/c I figured they are the ones who know so why argue. After two months of training with Mark, I saw lifting in a whole new light. I quickly realized that what I had been taught and/or trained to do may not have been the correct way to do things. Around 2008/09, I was diagnosed with Scoliosis (an abnormal curvature of the lower spine) and had been seeing a chirporactor up until December 2013 to continually get adjusted. It wasn't that I was in terrible pain, but it was certainly noticable especially after leg days. The chiropractor never completely fixed me, rather adjusted me until the next time. Since starting with Mark Featherstone @ Powerhouse, I no longer have had any pain in my back, nor have I had to get adjusted once. I attribute this to Mark's attention to detail, and showing me how to lift properly. A tweek here and there, and suddenly no more back pain, I am reaching lifting goals I never thought attainable and am more motivated than ever to hit the gym almost daily. I went from 2-3 days to a minimum of 4 now most weeks 5 depending on my schedule. Introducing his workouts into mine has showed massive gains and I am close to being in the best shape of my life. I would recommend Mark and his services to ANYONE including my fiance who is participating in his interval training with me in preparation of our wedding. Mark is well worth the money and will show you a side of your "fitness self" you never knew existed.

As a veteran of 15 professional mixed martial arts fights, I'm always looking for that competitive edge to keep myself on top of my game. Mark Featherstone gave me just that! I won't give away his secrets, but I will say my conditioning has never been better thanks to Mark. As a fighter, we want to be as powerful and explosive as possible, while maintaining that power/explosiveness for up to 5x5min rounds.. Generally, that doesn't happen. We either become super strong and explosive, but it only lasts for a few minutes, or we become cardio monsters with little strength to compliment that great cardio. Mark, has cracked the code to give us both! Since training with Mark, I've been able to keep my off season strength, and achieve new levels of cardio/endurance that I never would've thought possible! Do yourselves a favor and go train with Mark Featherstone!
