The world's first ancestor tutor who proposed the concept of personal training, many of the thinking patterns of personal education sports courses today come from RTS. Dr. Mark Slavin graduated from the National College of Chiropractic with a doctorate in Chiropractic. He later practiced as a chiropractor. After years of clinical work, Mark joined the NASM in 1991 as the education director of the personal trainer course. Joined RTS in 2000 as an international course director and lecturer, responsible for courses outside the United States, including Europe, Canada, South America, Africa and Asian countries. He is currently the international director of the RTS resistance training specialist certification course. In addition to RTS education courses, Dr Mark will bring a much-needed perspective to the work we do at the academy, establishing strong strategic partnerships with companies and industry organisations across global markets.
