Mark Green: Athlete Performance Coach
My name is Mark Green and I want to tell you guys a little bit more about me,
Growing up in a family that had three boys all we wanted to do was play. I was blessed to have two parents that loved me and taught me how to pursue the Lord first and everything else would come after that. My parents could not handle all that energy in one house, so they introduced me and my two brothers to recreational sports as early as possible. We soon discovered the sport of soccer and fell in love. Most everything that I remember about my childhood involved a soccer ball. We played soccer every chance we got and when we weren't playing we were watching a brother play.
The Lord gave me a gift that I was able to excel at and it landed me at the University of Mobile at which I played four years of collegiate soccer. I loved the game and the beach. While at Mobile I learned how to surf, found a passion for the outdoors and physical training. I started as a history major, but soon switched to Exercise Science and Exercise Physiology. I found myself reaching out to Lance every second that I could trying to learn more about the field that I wanted to get involved in.
Godspeed has been a part of my life since the 8th grade. My older brother and I started training back in the days when Godspeed was still called RPM. Lance and Blake became mentors and friends to me then. They walked me through high school, relationships, college and now have given me the opportunity to work at Godspeed. I love what I do and get the chance to now give back to the community that I grew up in.
I wake up everyday and thank the Lord for all that he has done in my life so far. I am only 22 and I look forward to what is in store for my life. It may not all be roses, but Christ still sits on the throne and I can rejoice in that.
