Mark Healy – The Global Fitness Guide
Mark began working as a Personal Trainer and Sports Therapist back in 1999. In that year he also understood the need for a new approach to private gym design, so he began creating bespoke facilities in the UK with his small team of interior designers. Having transformed garages, stables and outbuildings, they were the first and only company to offer this personalised and qualified service.
During this time he had the pleasure of working with the late Tom Perkins – the Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist – who was responsible for the start-ups of Amazon, AOL and Google to name a few.
In 2006, Mark was then invited by Tom to join his 88m sailing yacht ‘The Maltese Falcon’ as the onboard Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist. Whilst on board, he travelled extensively from the Cote D’Azur to the South Pacific where he supplied the first class service to numerous celebrities, European Royalty and many of the world’s wealthiest individuals.
This unusual introduction to the superyacht industry allowed for an additional market to their gym and spa designs. Now, twelve years later, having worked with many of the leading yacht designers, management companies, ship-builders and owners, the team have created some of the most exclusive facilities on both land and sea.
Today, as Mark continues his jet-set lifestyle for personal training clients and design projects, his travels continue to offer a unique insight into health & fitness facilities at many of the finest hotels and clubs around the world, and within the exclusive superyacht industry.
Working with Coconut London PR Consultancy, he is also a regular contributor to numerous trade magazines, online publications and national newspapers to fill the time at 35,000 FT.
