Hi, I'm Mark Mohammadpour!
Weight Loss Success Story. Award-Winning PR Executive. Certified Health Coach and Personal Trainer. Proud Husband and Puppy Dad. Lifelong Soccer Player and Fan.
I empower communicators and marketers to get mentally and physically fit so they can shine.
Weight Loss Success Story
I am an accredited senior communications executive, certified health coach, and personal trainer. After being fortunate enough to be engaged to my amazing wife Christine in 2007, I started a journey that led me to lose more than 100 pounds over nine months. I am proud to have kept that off since.
Back in 2007, I weighed more than 350 pounds. A frequent business traveler and public relations professional working 50-60 hour weeks, I struggled with how to deal with stress and thrive in our industry. Long flights sitting in coach, uncomfortable chairs in restaurants, and general embarrassment with being severely overweight were handled by eating too much and exercise too little.
After trying every method available, I realized that small, incremental, and sustainable changes over time would lead to a mental and physical transformation (including switching from eating 500 calories sugary scones to eating healthy breakfast wraps like in the photo above)!
After losing more than 100 pounds in 2008 and keeping it off for more than a decade, I decided to learn more about personal health and exercise.
Award-Winning PR Executive
At Edelman and Weber Shandwick, I led campaigns for more than 10 global technology brands and a branch of the United States military. I also served on the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Oregon board and president in 2016 and was honored to receive the Olga. M. Haley Mentorship Award by PRSA Oregon in 2020.
I am also the monthly Workplace Wellness columnist for PRSA's Strategies and Tactics Magazine.
As a public speaker, I have presented health and wellness and public relations best practices to thousands of people across the country. I have participated in panels with and/or have given presentations to graduate and undergraduate students from George Fox University, Portland State University, University of Oregon, University of Portland, and Washington State University.
Certified Health Coach and Personal Trainer
I am an American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer, Health Coach, and Behavior Change Specialist.
Since becoming certified, through my 1:1 coaching, group coaching, and corporate workshops, I have worked with people to prioritize their wellbeing in a way that is safe, ethical, and within their control.
