See what Mark’s Ultimate Body BLAST clients have to say:

I joined Ultimate Wellness in November 2013. I enjoy BLAST over other exercise alternatives because I get a full body workout without having to think about it. Mark strategically plans out each class in order for us to get the maximum benefit possible. He is always there to answer questions, push me to work harder and motivate me when I need it. I have never been a morning person, but since going to BLAST I have found a new appreciation for morning workouts. I lost 50 pounds by going to BLAST 3 times a week and participating in the many wellness challenges that Mark provides throughout the year. I couldn’t be happier! I am an Ultimate Wellness member for life!!
Thank you, Mark! 🙂

Michelle F. – Drexel Hill

I joined Ultimate Body BLAST like everyone else to lose weight and get into better shape and have been a member for 1 year.
I enjoy the different variety of challenging exercises at each session, with the focus on an overall total body workout. The other nice thing is that each workout is only 30 minutes so you’re in and out in 30 and can be finished for the day.

The transformation that I am most proud of is the fact that I lost 40lbs. I went from 225lbs to 185lbs. I am down 4 inches in my waist, and down a shirt size. The majority of this occurred in about 6 months, and I have been able to maintain this over the past 6 months. Also, through the Ultimate Wellness programs, I have been able to overhaul my diet, and with this combination I have more energy, better sleep patterns, and I am in overall better health. Prior to starting the program, I was taking prescription medication for gastric reflux and asthma. Over the last 9 months, I have been symptom free without any medication. I have a strong family history of heart disease, and my recent lab work from my family doctor revealed my cholesterol and triglycerides are at the lowest in 5 years.

I think Mark’s experience with physical therapy/rehab and sports conditioning makes this program stand out. He can design a program for all age groups and fitness levels, and still keep it in a group form. He continues to educate himself on the newest recommendations for health and fitness in which he incorporates into the program.
I have recommended family and friends already and will continue to do so. As a health care practitioner myself, I have referred patients to him not only for rehab for injuries but also for nutrition and fitness programs. I would like other people to experience the success that I have gone through to ultimately live a longer healthier life.

I was a college athlete with an orthopedic black cloud over my head. I had 3 knee surgeries, 3 foot surgeries and shoulder reconstruction. I joined Ultimate BLAST knowing I have to stay active and it was one of the best decision I’ve made. I have lost a total of 20 lbs and pay better attention to proper exercising techniques and nutrition. Mark is teaching me to focus on my core which in turn is helping with balance and stability. Mark also introduced a 21 day Detox which helped me to lose 11 pounds and 7% body fat. The nutrition tips along with the 20 minute workouts and positive motivation make this a perfect blend of workout fun! I highly recommend it!

I was first introduced to Mark through a neighbor that was a member of his 3 day a week Ultimate Body BLAST program. I was at first “peer pressured” into going 🙂 I began his program on the trial period and by the end of 4 weeks – I was hooked! In just that short amount of time I saw subtle changes in my body and the positive effects of how I was feeling. I am an insanely busy person; I run an upscale restaurant, keep up a household, and love my family of 2 little girls and husband. Keeping a healthy lifestyle and working out seemed almost impossible to me. Mark and his program completely transformed that thinking. My mindset is now on setting a good example to my little girls by staying active. My 9 year old has also participated in “Mommy’s exercise class” on Saturday with Mark at his Youth Fit Camp. She has learned that exercise can be fun and nutrition can be too! Gone are the days of frozen chicken fingers and tater tots for dinner! Because of Mark’s 30 day challenge; we food shop together and have fun with it, finding new things that she will enjoy and that are a healthier choice for her. My husband is even on board! The exercise program and meal plan has helped him to lose 7 pounds in just 2 weeks! He feels great about himself! I did not work alone – Mark has guided me through this entire process of transforming my family and I am grateful. In 30 days I have learned a lifetime of knowledge. I feel better about myself as a Mom and Wife knowing that my family is taking strides in the right direction for a healthier lifestyle. I would recommend his class and expertise to anyone of all fitness levels and ages. Try it….you will see change for the better!!

Christine R. – Havertown

I first joined BLAST about three years ago for the mundane “to lose weight”. However with Mark’s enthusiastic guidance I now desire a healthy lifestyle. I recently was diagnosed with a spinal problem and with Mark’s expertise in physical therapy he modifies workouts allowing improvement not worsening of my problem. You don’t get that at a gym. The variety of workouts and his knowledgeable instructions keep me coming back.

Kathleen M. – Havertown

I joined the BLAST program almost two and a half years ago because I felt that the gym was no longer helpful for me. The thing that I enjoy most is that we work on different muscles through each station. Every four weeks the routine is changed to work on other muscles, which is very beneficial. The benefits I see is that my body is firmer and I have lost inches as well as losing weight. When I was attending the gym for almost a year I only met with the instructors once, they showed me all the machines and I never saw them again. With the Ultimate Body BLAST Program, Mark is there to help you every step of the way compared to attending a gym. Mark will come over to you and correct what you are doing as to not damage another area of the body. He will explain how to do it again as well as what area of the body could be damaged if you don’t do it correctly. Mark also checks in with you if you haven’t made it to a couple sessions just to make sure all is okay, compared to the gym where no one notices if you attend or not. I would recommend the BLAST program because I feel there is more accountability. Mark cares about you as an individual, as a person and cares about your personal goals!

I have been with the Ultimate Body BLAST Program for approximately 3 years. I joined the program because I had heard that people loved it and had great results. What I enjoy the most is not necessarily the results, but how good I feel each day I go to BLAST. I go early in the a.m. and the main benefit I have seen is the amount of energy I have during the day. Mark is a wonderful trainer!! He is patient and kind and works with each and every person in the session. If any of us is having any type of physical concern, he works with us and modifies each and every exercise. It truly is a personal experience in every sense of the word!! I absolutely would recommend BLAST – I actually do whenever I have the chance. Mark is completely devoted in every aspect with helping you reach your goals for physical and mental growth!

Kathy D. – Havertown

I would rather go to BLAST over other workout classes because it isn’t too easy, but isn’t too hard either. You can go at a pace that is challenging for you. I could get a personal trainer but would be paying a lot more. BLAST gives me the personal training feel at a much more affordable price. Plus, Mark really cares about you and your progress and the rest of the people in the group are great too. I never feel intimidated. It’s a great environment.

A few things about Ultimate Wellness- I have be going to Mark’s programs for about 4 years now. I started with a neighbor, who I walked with, and decide to pick it up a bit.
I have two boys and they need a healthy Mom who can keep up, so it was time for me to get fit. I have done many different challenges that Mark offers and always get results when my head is in the game.

I enjoy the atmosphere. It’s not a big gym (not a fan of that). Everyone is always friendly, it is a good work out and is over before you know it.
He keeps you moving and I always come out feeling great. I completed my 1st Mud Run last year and I know if it wasn’t for Mark’s program that would have never been possible.

Mark Greenwood’s BLAST sessions are a fantastic way to get a great work out and have fun at the same time! I attended the Ultimate Body BLAST to get in shape for my wedding and I was so happy with the results. Mark is extremely encouraging and keeps me focused on my personal fitness goals.  After a few months of the Ultimate Body BLAST I noticed a real difference in my muscle tone and stamina. When I walked down the aisle I was in the best shape of my life!”

I really like the idea of working on different parts of your body over the course of the week; “mixing it up” relieves the boredom of exercising and potentially burning out.

Greta G. – Bryn Mawr

Wanting to get motivated for my upcoming wedding, I turned to Mark to help jump start my enthusiasm for working out again. I was bored with the same old thing and looking for something new and fun at the same time. That’s what I found with Ultimate Wellness and the Ultimate Body BLAST. The workouts were challenging and different each time, and I found myself excited to workout again. I could see and feel changes in my body after just a few sessions. I looked and felt better than I had in a while. When my wedding day came, I felt toned, trimmed, and fantastic. Thanks Ultimate Wellness!”

TRY IT! EVEN IF YOU ARE SCARED OR UNSURE, YOU’LL NEVER KNOW UNTIL YOU TRY. EVERYONE AT BLAST IS FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING AND EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN PACE. IT IS WELL WORTH IT!

Mary F. – Broomall

The Ultimate Body BLAST is the best fitness program I’ve ever participated in, and I have exercised for most of my life. I like that there are early morning classes available, so I am able to get my workout in and over with before I start the rest of my day. Mark is tremendous, not only is he excellent at what he does with his classes as a certified personal trainer, but he is also a practicing physical therapist, and he helps you manage all the aches and pains that go with everyday life, as well as any that arise from exercising. It’s like having your own personal physical therapist available to you, and he’s very generous with his time and talents. I am 60 years old, and I have a lot of friends that say “I’m too old for that”, to which I reply, I’d hate to think how old I’d feel if I didn’t do “that”. Mark’s program can be as demanding as you want to make it, but can be adjusted to anyone’s physical capabilities. I’d highly recommend it to anyone, no matter your age, or physical condition. You’ll feel better and that’s what it’s all about.”

Jim D. – Havertown

Since joining The Ultimate Body BLAST I have been able to work my 15 hour work days without running out of energy half way through the day. I haven’t had this much energy in a few years. I also feel a lot more flexible. Doing this program and slightly modifying my diet, I have lost 4 pounds and see better tone in my body as well as a stronger stamina compared to when I started.

If you want a complete balanced workout on all parts of your body without heavy lifting or over-taxing yourself then the “Ultimate Body BLAST” is for you. I have personally recruited two friends who love the program and am always telling others, especially when they notice how tone and fit I am becoming.”

    Mark Greenwood is a great teacher and coach.   I’ve had the distinct pleasure to work with him one on one while rehabbing a shoulder injury.  In addition, due to Mark’s care & concern, I got started on a workout regimen that has led me to a healthier and happier life style. Mark has a subtle style of being demanding and encouraging.  He’s a terrific communicator as he explains the benefits of following his plan – a plan developed specifically for you and your goals.  I’m honored to call Mark a friend.
