Now instead of teaching his patients one-at-a-time, Dr. Tinsley is speaking to hundreds of audience members as a professional speaker. He was recently accepted as a member of the National Speakers Association and the Global Speakers Federation, the two premier organizations for professional speakers.
As professional member of these prestigious groups, Dr. Marc Tinsley is an dynamic, effective, and in-demand speaker who helps people remove the obstacles that interfere with their health, their happiness, and their success. He takes the fear, difficulty, mystery, and confusion out of health, wellness, and fitness with keynotes, workshops, in-services, coaching, and consulting.
His funny and informative presentations deliver practical information and audience members leave with actionable items that they can put into practice right away. More than 95% of his audience members claim that they will make positive changes to their lifestyle as a result of his programs.
He's a hit with audiences from all kinds of associations, schools, and corporations. He has given presentations to local and international organizations including the Society of Association Executives, Westmoreland Human Resources Association, Pittsburgh Human Resources Association, American Nephrology Nursing Association, Meeting Professionals International, SMC Business Councils, Auberle, Pittsburgh Technical Institute, Accenture, Vesuvius, Verizon, Vocollect, U.S. Bank, General Electric, PNC Bank, and MetLife.
Dr. Tinsley's interactive and amusing style engages the audience, helping them feel comfortable as he delivers inspiring and supportive messages to help them build resiliency, increase energy, improve productivity, maximize performance, and achieve excellence.
In addition to being a popular professional speaker, Dr. Tinsley is a creative and talented writer and author. His knack for analogies, connecting the known to the unknown, and his ability to take complicated ideas and convert them into easy to understand lessons have made him a popular contributor to magazines, websites, and newspapers and he has two soon to be published books which are based on his popular keynote speeches. Dr. Tinsley has also made many media appearances and been interviewed for several television programs, radio shows, websites, and magazines.
"Contrary to what the magazine covers say, fitness isn't about sweat, six-packs, and sex appeal. " says Dr. Tinsley. "It's about becoming more resilient, having more energy, and maximizing your performance in your unique daily activities at home and at work."
Dr. Tinsley is known as the People Repairman and founder of Fitness for the Rest of Us. "Most people don't want six-pack abs. They just don't want their belly to jiggle when they brush their teeth. They're not interested in running a marathon. They just don't want to get out of breath when they go up stairs."
"They just need to be more physically active, eat healthier, manage stress, and get adequate rest. And they need to hear encouraging messages in a non-judgmental environment."
Dr. Tinsley doesn't speak to athletes or trainers, models or celebrities. His audiences are made up of ordinary people who want to take better care of themselves but don't know where to start. "Much of the information that in magazines and television is intimidating and not appropriate for most people. A baseball player doesn't train like a football player; a hockey player doesn't train like a basketball player; and neither should the rest of us." says Dr. Tinsley
"I help people Think Outside the Barbell. I focus on functional fitness with practical advice and sensible techniques so that ordinary people with real jobs are better able to perform their activities of daily living. And when they enhance their health, they increase their energy levels, productivity improves, and they achieve maximum performance at work, and at home."
The National Speakers Association (NSA) and the Global Speakers Federation are the leading organizations for professional speakers. They provide resources and education designed to advance the skills, integrity and value of its members and the speaking profession. Their members include experts in a variety of industries and disciplines, who reach audiences as trainers, educators, coaches, motivators, consultants, humorists, authors and more.
After being accepted by NSA, Dr. Tinsley immediately began pursuing the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation. Conferred by the National Speakers Association, the CSP is the speaking profession's international measure of professional platform competence. The CSP is the highest designation recognized worldwide by the speaking profession and earned only after demonstrating competence in professional platform skills and eloquence, business management, topic expertise, professional education, ethics, professional association, professionalism, and success. Only the top 10 percent of professional speakers in the world have earned this credential.
