Hello, my name is Mark Woodside. I am based out of Knoxville, TN. Right now, I am looking to provide some opportunities to give people guitar lessons and also personally train people to reach their fitness goals.
In terms of guitar, I have been playing since I was 13 years old (I am 26 now, almost 27). I am a music leader at a church. Also, I am working on my first professional EP in Nashville, TN. That should be coming out soon.
I am working with one student right now. When teaching guitar, I like to start with the basics (strumming, basic chords and patterns, proper techniques, and dynamics) to make sure my students are getting a good foundation to move forward. This is huge to their success, and I like to create a fun environment. You can't tell from this description, but I am a very outgoing person, so I like to have fun.
I have a beard which helps give me all my musical powers. It strengthens me when I am feeling weak.
Also, I am currently working at a gym called The Rush as a personal trainer. I just started there and am excited to be able to help people reach their fitness goals.
I have a passion for fitness. As a side note, I lost 40 lbs from September to December. I love being active and staying healthy, but more than that I love seeing other people I work with reach their goals. I know that sounds cliche or cheesy, but it genuinely is true. There is nothing better for me than seeing someone fight and fight, then finally see some results and get to experience the joy of hard work and determination.
I am a very outgoing person, so the workouts I put you through reflect that. They will be fun but also challenging. I will sit down with you to create a workout plan, and we will walk through it together. I am a very relational person, so this won't be a "show up, work out, and leave" deal.
I want to get to know you, make it more personal, and just have fun. Working out should be fun.
Let's create a fun and healthy lifestyle together. I'm looking forward to it.
