Gymnastics was Mark “Skip” Skipper’s first love, so it was no surprise when he was tipped to be youngest male to go to the Olympics. Sadly a major change in family circumstances at the age of 11 caused Skip’s father stop his gymnastics training. This had a devastating effect on Skip who turned to food as a substitute for his passion.
Looking at him now you would never know that as a child he was allergic to nuts, grass pollen, dust and animals, asthmatic, covere in eczema, caught every cold, even pneumonia and then at 18 he was diagnosed as obese.
Unable to face being obese, Skip made a decision to return to gymnastics. He lost the excess weight, found a coach to work with every day and got the opportunity to be coached by a two-times world champion. With his coaching Skip won the British Gymnastics Champion title. But just weeks later tragedy struck during training when Skip fell and broke his back. All the doctors and specialists had the same diagnosis; Skip would never walk again, forced to be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life!
Refusing to accept this, Skip studied the power of the mind, the body and the spirit, learning ancient philosophies. His strength returned and just six months after the accident he taught himself to walk again to the sheer amazement of the medical profession. From then on there was no stopping him. Walking went to running, to jumping, to boldly returning to gymnastics and regaining his British Gymnastics title!
The principles that Skip learned have been forged to form his ”10 Commandments 4 Health”, which he used to reverse all those aliments he suffered from as a child. Now possessing this wealth of knowledge on health, energy and vitality he has dedicated himself to share it with others.
Skip now lives with excellent health, an abundance of energy and vitality. As a health and fitness coach to many, as well as the rich and famous, he helps his clients overcome their health issues applying the same principles he used on himself. He also runs total immersion events that are educational, inspirational, entertaining and transformational toSUPERCHARGE YOUR LIFE… FOREVER!
