In 2012, Jackie Cohen met Mark Plaisir at a gym on the Upper West Side in New York City. As they began to train together, Jackie and Mark formed a strong partnership based on a shared passion for fitness and wellness. In 2015, they co-founded Safe Training Strategy, with the goal of safely and successfully changing people’s lives through fitness. Working out doesn’t have to be complicated, but it needs to be smart. People over the age of 40 have different needs and physical challenges that impact the way they should train. STS wants their clients to benefit from a calmer nervous system and a level of energy that they haven’t felt in years.
