See what the Beast's clients have to say about his professional strength & conditioning training.
I chose Mark Featherstone to help me gain size. Shane Mulligan from Cape Cod Fighting Alliance worked out with Mark and got some real results, so I chose Mark too. I love the improvement in my mass and the way my body looks. He pushes me to always try more weight, and I have gotten better results than I expected...and were not even done yet...

Began Martial Arts training in 1993
Private student since 2006 & Certified Muay Thai Instructor under Kru Mark Dellagrotte, SitYodTong, Boston.
Just finished 10 sessions with Mark Featherstone at Powerhouse. I knew that it would benefit me to include strength training in with my Muay Thai & BJJ. I was a litttle concerned regarding the issues that I had with my knee. From the 1st day I was excited to work with Mark. He listened to what I wanted to accomplish & what problems I had and designed a workout specifically for me. His enthusiasm, attention to detail & proper technique and knowledge of kinesiology impressed me. I would highly reccommed Mark to anyone looking for a personal trainer whether you are a professional fighter or just someone looking to get in better shape!!

When my fighters need extra stregnth, I send them to Mark to cross train. I know that Mark is very knowlegeable in his field. My fighters will gain the lean mass they need to give them the competitive edge they are looking for.

I originally came to Mark with a simple mission: "I need to get strong again!" I had been out of commission from a knee injury for three years and was making a less than triumphant return to the practice of mixed martial arts. Mark evaluated me and developed a personalized plan to help me get back on track. Results were rapid and as my strength returned, my goals evolved. We focused our attention on legs (always a problem area for women). Marks weekly leg liquidation sessions produced lines and definition in new places, fast! My body was changing and my confidence was soaring...a few weeks in, we added fighter intervals to the mix. This grueling, ever-changing workout harnessed the strength we had been working on and applied it to honing explosive fighter-based movements while developing breathing techniques to maximize efficiency of my oxygen delivery. Wow... so effective! The results were evident in my daily training after only two weeks. I was stronger, faster, and exhibited increased stamina in my Muay Thai, jiu-jitsu and MMA training sessions. Things have come full circle and our private strength-training sessions are now directed at training me like a fighter. By only my third month of training with Mark, my results have far exceeded my expectations. Not only is Mark extremely knowledgeable about kinesiology, but he pays close attention to detail with regard to each athletes specific required skill set. His coaching style is always positive and nurturing and he provides the catalyst for me to dig deep within myself to break through any self-imposed physical limitations I may try to concoct! I leave our sessions feeling exhilarated and exhausted, but always a better than when I entered the gym. I part ways with a beast hug and a heart-felt, "I love you, man!" Training with Mark has been a real game-changer for me. I dont know what Id do without him. P.S. I commute two hours from West Newbury, MA to train with Mark. It is well worth the drive. - "Honorary Beastess",

I have neither gained nor lost weight, I have however gained noticeable lean muscle mass. Because of your training I bring new strength and explosive power to my MMA training. Furthermore, my endurance far surpasses anything I have experienced thus far in my fighting career. Under your guidance I have definitely elevated my game! It has never been about numbers on a scale but about results!!!!!! I can't thank you enough.

I started working with Mark last spring. I didn't know what to expect but, I knew he had an outstanding reputation for his training and professionalism. I didn't just go in and simply train. I gained excellent knowledge and workouts that I can honestly say, I have never experienced in my life with anyone that I've ever worked with. I've seen the most amazing changes in my physique and placed in Figure, for the first time, this November. I'm addicted and can't imagine training with anyone else!!!! Not only am I honored to train with such an amazing, knowledgeable person, I am honored to call Mark my friend!!

I first heard of Mark Featherstone from WNBF Pro Kristin Fonseca. She was having tremendous results working with him and highly recommended him. Mark trains in Plymouth Ma and I live in Maine. I lost my trainer up here in Maine and really have had a difficult time focusing on my work outs and bodybuilding goals ever since. I decided to get in touch with Bulldog the Beast - and I was definitely very timid, why would someone have the nickname of Beast? Right. Well after a few back and forth conversations via FB, I made my first appointment and took the journey down to Plymouth in the early spring of 2013. I was not disappointed! Mark was awesome! His knowledge of bodybuilding, training, keen sense of peoples personalities and cool demeanor had me hooked! This Beast really knows his stuff and how to communicate it to me. The workouts he put me through wore me out and I smiled all the way home, walking was optional the next few days. I continued to work with Mark so that he could understand me and my "flat muscles" lol and see what we could do to pump them up and get me some size on this old frame "OORAH". Mark gave me workouts to do back in Maine that I stuck to all season. I believe that this is the reason that I finally placed in the heavy weight Pro womens bodybuilding class at the IFPA Gaspari Pro Classic on October 12, 2013. I continued to do well in the WNBF Pro Am November 2nd and the WNBF World Championship November 9th. I plan on meeting up with Mark/Bulldog/Beast in 2014 so that he can push me past my limits to a successful Pro Bodybuilding season in 2014! I highly recommend training with Mark Featherstone if you want results.

Having had shoulder issues for 2 years I finally had rotator cuff surgery. After my surgery I was very apprehensive to get back to lifting. After training with Mark who is a wealth of knowledge with post op clients he had me lifting practically double (safely)then I thought was possible. He got me back into a routine & Im feeling the strongest I have ever felt. Combining his weight workouts with his boot camp classes is intense (to say the least). He has the knack of pushing you to your limits to ensure that you succeed! I am very grateful for Mark and he is an asset to have in our area.

I have trained with Mark Featherstone for two years. At first when I found him on facebook I was terrified he would shoot me down and not take me as a client because I am a "Bikini Competitor". To my wonderful surprise he not only took me on but took me under his wing and made it his personal mission to help me grow into a pro level competitor. I started with Mark as a skinny little thing at less than 100lbs. He gathered up his professional knowledge and helped me build myself in one year to a 110 lbs on stage. This may not seem like a lot but I am an Ectomorph and its practically impossible for me to gain lean mass and muscle. Mark put me on his workout plan and it worked. Thank you Mark! I am now on my way to stepping it up to 116 lbs of lean mass and muscle in 2014! Ooh rah. I'm a "Little Beast" now!
