Mark DiSalvo, BA, CSCS


I believe in two ideas when it comes to training, health, and life in general:

  1. Those who work hard are rewarded with inspiration and success
  2. That when you "know the way broadly, you will see it in all things."
    The famous Mushashi quote can be applied to anything. Learn something in one discipline and you'll see similar patterns in your life. I strive to help you make those connections through mobility and strength training.
