Mark Lovat is now in his 16th year with the Packers and his fifth as the club’s strength and conditioning coordinator. Promoted to his current position Feb. 15, 2010, Lovat swapped roles with Dave Redding, for whom Lovat served as an assistant in 2009.

Joining the team full-time Jan. 25, 1999, Lovat worked under three Green Bay strength and conditioning coordinators – Barry Rubin (1999-2005), Rock Gullickson (2006-08) and Redding, who retired following the 2010 season. Lovat also previously served two summer internships in the club’s weight room.

Lovat (luh-VOTT) was named the NFL Strength Coach of the Year for his work in 2011 by the Professional Football Strength and Conditioning Coaches Society, an award based on a vote of his peers in the field. Lovat became the third Green Bay strength coach to win the prestigious honor, joining Kent Johnston (1997) and Gullickson (2007).

In 2010, Lovat was honored by the Professional Football Strength and Conditioning Coaches Society with the Super Bowl Achievement Award.

An accomplished athlete himself, Lovat earned a Division I baseball scholarship to Butler University in Indianapolis, starting three seasons at shortstop and second base for the Bulldogs. He also received the Helen Tewksbury Award for academic and athletic leadership and the Mental Attitude Award during the course of his playing career.

After graduating cum laude and with high honors from Butler in 1992 with a B.A. degree in Spanish and international studies, Lovat spent four years at Lake Havasu City (Ariz.) High School, teaching Spanish as well as coaching football and baseball.

The son of former Green Bay offensive line coach Tom Lovat (1980, 1992-98), Lovat is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). He became a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) in April 2000.

In 2005, Lovat completed his master’s degree in exercise science and performance enhancement from California University of Pennsylvania. He also has earned certifications as a performance-enhancement specialist (PES) and as a corrective-exercise specialist (CES) from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). Additionally, in 2002 he achieved a Level 1 certification through USA Weightlifting, the governing body of the U.S. Olympic weightlifting team. Lovat is also certified in the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and completed a human-movement science course as part of his continuing education.
