Carl Mason Liebenberg – Fitness Professional
Carl Mason Liebenberg is a man on a mission! Currently residing in South Africa, where he works as a fitness professional, his mission is to bring the same principles he has found to be true in his own life & health to YOU! Here is his reason for serving as a wellness and fitness coach in his own words, “I overcame incurable cancer in my early 30′s. Rather than succumb the grave to which I was condemned, I chose life through the natural provision made for us all. That was 16+ years ago. And today my passion is to help each and everyone I can, to do the same – choose life, health and wholeness!” Carl’s story is a powerful one, and we are honored to have his expertise, tremendous passion and servant’s heart for the wellness community on this team!
