In 2012, Jackie Cohen met Mark Plaisir at a gym in New York City. As they began to train together, they formed a strong partnership based on a shared passion for fitness and wellness. In 2016, Jackie and Mark co-founded Safe Training Strategy, with the goal of safely and successfully changing people’s lives through integrative training. Jackie had worked with many trainers before Mark. She suffered from lower back pain and shoulder injuries from sports and overtraining. Within two months of training with Mark, she felt an enormous difference in her mindset and her physical strength. They are both committed to integrating breath-work and proper form into every STS session.
