I met Mark Stonkus over ten years ago. I first knew him as an athletic trainer who stood out from the crowd of trainers with his blend of intense physical training combined with a focus on psychological training. He had a unique style that made his gym a favorite for so many people - always positive and with great energy, people lined up to be a part of what Mark was offering. He started working with my children in middle school and did his magic with all of them tailoring his sessions to meet each of their needs. Besides the obvious benefits of physical training he became a true friend and helped them along their way into adulthood. Mark's mental health counseling skills became a crucial benefit in our relationship with him. When one of our sons began having problems in high school with substance abuse Mark not only helped him navigate his way to health but he also helped the rest of our family though this very tough time. We had a difficult road with our son to say the least, but Mark helped all of us stay the course and he never gave up - even after moving far away. Its been five years since this difficult time and Mark is still a major part of my son’s life and we all consider him a good friend for life. I can't imagine how we would have gotten to where we are today without Mark’s help.

We have known Mark for several years. He has helped our son tremendously, as a person and as an athlete. Mark is understanding, easy to talk with and a great listener who gives sound advice. His advice has helped and continues to help our son take risks and not be afraid to speak his mind, especially when different from others. Mark Stonkus is a great guy to have in your corner.

Mark has been an instrumental part of my physical and mental growth throughout high school. His workouts are challenging yet enjoyable and motivate me to push myself beyond my comfort zone. His knowledge of sports science is extensive, and he has used this knowledge to help many athletes, like myself.
