Marc Dressen is a renowned personal fitness expert, visionary sports scientist, European Martial Arts gold medallist and NLP executive coach.
My name is Marc Dressen and I’d like to bid you a special welcome to my ‘little private universe’ – where fitness training is filled with depths of insight and heaps of vitality.
I want to you to feel cozy and at home on this website as well. So grab a cup of your favorite beverage (make it a healthy one this time) while I tell you how and why you’ve just bumped into the most forward-thinking personal fitness trainer on the planet.
To say fitness is my life’s passion is a great understatement. I realised very early in my life that my best potentials lay not in academic study, but in the holistic development of both mind and body.
My belief is that although a fit lifestyle certainly offers you physical and health benefits, too many to enumerate here, its endearing effects need to be experienced in all other aspects of your life. For this to happen you have to see and embrace the bigger picture.
Fitness training has provided for me, as it no doubt will for you, a powerful vehicle by which I have been able to pursue, achieve and truly live according to my dreams and aspirations.
I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen. – Frank Lloyd Wright
As a personal fitness trainer, I have to date had the pleasure and privilege to have worked closely with more than 15000 ‘beautiful’ individuals whom I have assisted in reaching their goals of a fitter and healthier lifestyle.
Through countless one on one training sessions, the numerous seminars and workshops I have conducted, and via many self-help guides I have produced, I have since gained enormous hands on experience. I have developed powerful instincts which help me to guide ordinary people, just like yourself, achieve wondrous results from weight loss and personal fitness programmes.
I have over the course of my career worked with many high profile clients, ranging from celebrities, politicians, Boardroom execs, to some of the most influential people in the world. any of these people have relied on my knowledge and expertise time and again to support their personal lifestyle and fitness goals.
When I moved from Germany in 2012 to take up permanent residence in the UK, I proceeded to rebuild my personal fitness training business from scratch. Within the first year of operation, I was contacted by Fitness First who had conferred upon me the title of ‘personal fitness trainer of choice’. This partnership would prove mutually beneficial, and in 2015 they named me among their favourite brand ambassadors.
The fact that they value my contributions to the fitness industry is something I am both grateful for and humbled by. Other brands like the Nike Instructor Club regularly call upon my expertise, and I’ve assisted publications like Men’s Health magazine on several occasions to produce informative and educational articles for their readership.
It has taken much dedication and unfailing resolve to earn the reputation of a ‘Go To’ personal training expert. A reputation I am totally unafraid to hold onto if it means I am able to help much more people achieve life changing results with a simple push in the right direction.
This is what drives me, constantly. Perhaps it’s also the reason behind why I undertook years ago to carefully understand and appreciate the nuances of the human psyche.
I have extensive training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP as it is widely known. Through ongoing learning I have passed through all stages of study – completing the NLP Practitioner and NLP Master courses along the way, culminating finally in the prestigious NLP Coach qualification.
“Our mind is the most valuable possession that we have. The quality of our lives is, and will be, a reflection of how well we develop, train, and utilize this precious gift.” – Brian Tracy
NLP has played an integral role in my own life, and the many subsequent achievements I have enjoyed. I have also assisted many people simply by using the skills I’ve acquired in this field. My work is to help people learn how to actively and deliberately transform their way of thinking. This is so necessary for progress, not only to get into better shape, but it also makes all other manners of life altering both plausible and accessible.
I am natural born listener and I’m able to read people very accurately as well. This helps me to learn about the deeper aspects of each individual client’s needs, and understand fully the exact problems and internal obstacles they might be facing.
Then as their coach I guide them on the path of rectifying personal beliefs about themselves, effectively changing negative thoughts and hindrances into powerfully positive convictions. This, in turn, prepares them for the kind of actions and behaviour which will continuously direct, drive and deliver them to repeated success.
Anything and everything becomes possible. My clients know I have what it takes to guide them through many sensitive health problems and fitness issues. The many gratuitous feedbacks I have received from thousands of clients tell me I must be doing something right.
Did I mention I’m also a Taekwondo master?
Honestly, if you need help with weight loss, building lean muscle tone and strength, improving posture and stance, rehabilitation from injuries, or any other more serious health issues – I’m your man!
