Organization Overview

Mark Paulsen founded Working Athlete®based on one simple question, “Why hasn’t the science of mainstream sports nutrition been applied to the specific needs of the outdoor/industrial athlete?” Mr. Paulsen answered his own question by launching Wilderness Athlete®and Working Athlete®for those who wear camo, hard hats and steel-toed boots. He did so to address their unique physical demands because there are no commercial timeouts for the wilderness and working athletes.

Mark Paulsen understands hard work. During college Mark worked spreading concrete, climbing power poles and acid washing bricks. Mark received his Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from the University of Kansas and he pursued his Masters degree in Nutrition from University of South Carolina. Mark is a renowned strength and conditioning coach with careers at University of South Carolina, Long Beach State University, and the University of New Mexico.
