Mark Twight is a man who has found success in many arenas. When I first heard his name, he was described as an Alpinist, an expert in the outdoors. The description did not do the man justice.
Mark was not only an alpinist, he is an author, the founder of Gym Jones, an accomplished cyclist, and at one time a trainer to many stars that most would recognize from movies such as 300, and Man Of Steel.
Mark and I met in 2005, while I was slowly climbing out of the hole that an injury from work, plus my own poor choices, had put me in. Our initial encounter was “exercise” based, and the lessons he exposed me to still frame the way I train now, and eventually led to a short lived career in the “fitness world.”
He is one of the most unique human beings I have ever encountered, with an intensity and drive that can burn most to the ground. It is what I admire most about him.
This conversation was over 1 year in the making. We both wanted to wait until we were in the right spot, and I believe we finally arrived there.
