In my practice as a physical therapist I rarely come across a trainer as competent as Mark. I wish he were closer as I would refer my patients to him for follow-up care! Presently I am working on a manuscript that focuses on prevention of injury through physical training. I am depending on Mark’s thoroughness and expertise as editor.
Mark has proven to be knowledgeable not only in various training techniques and nutrition, but is able to bring the best out of an individual both physically and psychologically. I dare say, he knows my capabilities and limitations (physical and mental) better than I do.
Poppa quickly establishes a rapport with his clients and can pin-point their fitness requirements. His enthusiasm is infectious. He inspires one into a fitness state of mind.
Mr. Lewis is a lifelong devotee of bodybuilding. He has extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and nutrition. He is indispensable when it comes to choreographing a posing routine. After a year under Mr. Lewis’ tutelage I have made great gains, the best being an increase of 5” on each thigh. When I have any problems, whether training related or personal, he is always there.
Mr. Lewis evaluated my needs and successfully corrected the strength and flexibility imbalances that my job had created. It has now been over 1 1/2 years since I’ve had any problems and I am still working at the same job.
After just 3 weeks under Mr. Lewis’ guidance, I added 15 pounds to my bench press and 30 pounds to my deadlift, and increased my squat poundage substantially.
What I really like about Poppa the most is his genuine concern for his students and he has a “gift” of making these sessions fun!
Mark is also able to mix his firmness and resolve with patience and adaptability to his student's needs in order to reach the desired goals.
