I played for many top Champions League teams over the years, including FC Barcelona, Chelsea and Tottenham Hot Spurs. During that time I worked with quite a few physical coaches: some good, some not so good, some excellent.
I can say that without a doubt, Mark belongs to the latter category.

I have worked with Mark since 2006. He is very professional and accurate in his work. I am a personal trainer but I go to him to get the maximum results and motivation that I need.
2008, before the Olympics in Beijing, he put me in the form of my life, his formulas in the gym and knowledge in nutrition are about as pro as it gets. Another big bonus is also his treatment/therapy, and what I like the most is how important the technique-thing is, it’s all about quality not quantity.
If you are considering to be the best possible version of yourself, he is the guy to help you out with that.

Since working with Mark I am stronger, more powerful and physically more developed on the pitch. It shows in the results, by my performance in 2013 and 2014, when I was working with him in both the winters leading up to the seasons. What’s more, his work has helped me stay injury free as well. I never had any problems or serious problems, some stiffness here and there but his treatment and methods fixed me up. He definitely is the Go To Guy here if you want results in helping performance and staying injury free.
I’ve struggled a lot with injuries in the past few years due to my sport and because of stupid mistakes in the gym.
In September 2014 I met Mark for the first time. That man knows what he is doing: now I am stronger and more explosive than ever, my condition is great and best of all I have not had any serious injuries since i started training with Mark.
Mark said he’d make me as “Bulletproof” to injuries as possible, and he has. What’s more, his training is specific to my sport, so it helps me get to the highest possible level, to reach my full potential.
It gives me great confidence when walking to the ring knowing I have that kind of knowledge backing me up.

Don’t be a fat bastard and start training with the best personal trainer in Iceland!
Here Logi talks about our work together through 2 football clubs. By now we’re working together on the third club/team (Stjarnan), which -at the time of writing, July 2013- kicks butt big time, leading the league.

I played pro in Holland for several years, but I was continuously injured. Then I came back to Iceland for surgery, and things became better…for a while. But then it started again! It was one never ending up and down…
I got worried about my football career…
Until I met Mark: the best physical coach I have worked with.
Now my body is stronger than ever, and most importantly: injury free!

I’ve been a player in top class handball in Iceland for 23 years. During that time I’ve had a lot of different physical coaches. I can say with out a doubt that Mark is the best one I have had in those 23 years.
I have been struggling with my physical form and weight for the last 6 years. Since I started training by Marks nutritional and exercise program I have had unbelievable results. I’ve lost 9 kg. in 8 weeks and 6 cm. off my waist. At the same time both my strength and energy levels are considerably higher. I thought that my playing carrier was finished but now I feel like I’m 10 years younger. Mark has given me the opportunity and confidence to play again and to continue to enjoy my sport.

2005 I moved back to Iceland after 8 years as a professional footballer in Switzerland, Norway, Belgium and Sweden. That year I got champion with FH and was voted player of the year by my team-mates and the newspapers. At this stage I played for the national team of Iceland. In 2006 I had a serious injury in my knee and I thought my career was over. I met Mark in the beginning of the year 2007 and he’s the main reason that I’m still playing at the highest level in Iceland. His knowledge, skills and experience have made me much stronger. He has really helped me to stabilize and strengthen my knee as well as my whole body. Actually I feel stronger and more powerful than ever, thanks to Mark.

In the beginning of 2012 I injured my shoulder in a weightlifting accident. After four months of constant pain I thought I would never do judo again. Then a friend of mine sent me to Mark Kislich. He fixed my shoulder with his bare hands in a few weeks. He also made me do rehab exercises that made me stronger than before. The recovery was almost unbelievable. Now I’m fighting as if nothing had happened.
