Transforming Lives Through Sustainable Fitness: Meet First-Year Fitness Coach Mario Young

Mario Young is the founder of 500hrs Online Coaching, a fitness coaching service that specializes in helping women & men lose 10-15lbs per month without strict fad diets. His passion for transforming lives by creating sustainable fitness plans that promote overall well-being stems from his personal journey of overcoming health and mental issues.

After years of neglecting his health and body, from living a careless lifestyle which included recreational drug use, excessive partying, and many other detrimental activities.

Mario found himself facing numerous health issues including severe depression, anxiety, and ptsd. He began working out and eating better to combat them, and over two years, managed to transform his body, losing a total of 83lbs. When his lifetime friend asked for his help to get healthy, he worked with her day in and day out for four months, and she ended up cutting 47lbs of body fat. This transformative experience of watching someone other than himself benefit from his teachings; inspired him to become a full-time health and fitness coach and start 500hrs Online Coaching.

Mario’s goal within the fitness industry is to educate and explain fitness to people struggling in a more simple and sustainable format to create lasting change. He is most proud of helping people lose a total of nearly 500lbs in body fat in his first year of starting his coaching business. Despite this success, starting his business was not without its challenges. Mario’s toughest obstacle to overcome was seeing his little cousin Jaidyn pass away from cancer just as he was starting his coaching business. Nevertheless, he was determined to persevere past the trauma and suffering that his family endured and make a positive impact on people’s lives through health/fitness.

500hrs Coaching’s main focus is to help clients figure out what specifically works for their lifestyle to maintain great health. Mario’s personalized approach to coaching ensures that clients receive individualized attention that promotes sustainable change. His coaching methods are rooted in science and practicality, making it easier for clients to understand and implement his advice even after the completion of his program.
