Richard Machowicz

Former Navy SEAL and Life Coach

RICHARD “MACK” MACHOWICZ is best known as the compelling host and producer of Discovery Channel’s hit show “FutureWeapons” in addition to producing and hosting a one-hour special for the Discovery Channel called “Weapons That Changed the World,” which continues to be seen on both the Discovery and Military Channels. He just signed an exclusive development deal with SPIKE TV to host and executive produce some cool guy-centric programming due to air in 2010. Mack also hosted and developed a one-hour pilot for NBC with J.D. Roth of 3ball and David Broome of 25/7 called The Gift, which aired on Bravo. He filmed a cameo appearance with Gerard Butler in the film GAMER directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the dynamic duo that created the hit film Crank. Mack was also central in the marketing blitz of the video game Red Faction: Guerilla for THQ. He co-wrote and hosted five webisodes that featured him detailing the game’s weapons, game play and also included a weekend weapon firing familiarization junket. Red Faction: Guerilla went from a relatively unheralded game to an acclaimed game that generated almost $15 million in sales within the first few weeks of its release.

Much of Mack's expertise derives from his experience as a ten-year veteran of the U.S. Navy SEALs. While a member of SEAL Team One and Two he participated in numerous tactical operations. During his service in SEAL Team Two, he was attached to the training cadre as the Leading Petty Officer of Land, Mountain and Arctic Warfare. He has over 25 years of experience in the martial arts studying such systems as muay thai boxing, Jeet Kune Do, kickboxing, aikido, jujitsu, savate, arnis and karate. He was a certified instructor in the Naval Special Warfare Combat Fighting Instructor Course, a Naval Special Warfare Scout/Sniper and has received multiple black belts. Mack also served as a personal protection specialist for many high profile individuals within the political arena, business world and entertainment industry.

Mack is also the founder and creator of the Bukido“ Training System. Bukido“ is much more than a martial art; it is the physical manifestation of a performance philosophy which uses unarmed combat as a metaphor for exploring the dynamics of doubt, hesitation, second guessing, stress, pain, fatigue and fear. Bukido“ teaches clients how to maximize their ability to focus in any environment.

Mack is author of the bestselling book, Unleash the Warrior Within: Develop the Focus, Discipline, Confidence and Courage You Need to Achieve Unlimited Goals, now available in four languages.

Mack has worked with and conducted speaking engagements for various professionals ranging from the National Football League and the National Basketball Association to senior corporate executives and their staff.

Mack's work has been featured in a number of publications including the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly's “Best of LA,” Muscle and Fitness, Glamour, Men's Fitness, Jump, The Dallas Morning News, Mentor's Magazine and copious Internet publications. His work has appeared on ESPN, The Discovery Channel, The Jim Rome Show, NBC, Last Call with Carson Daly, Fox Sports, Extra, Lifetime's “New Attitudes” and was a frequent guest on CNBC’s “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch”.

Mack enjoys telling stories that are exciting and action packed. He has written a one hour military thriller pilot “Trident” and two action feature scripts “The Shepherd, The Sheep or The Wolf” and “Brother's Keeper,” all registered with the Writers Guild of America. Mack is working on a new non-fiction book, has appeared in several plays as a lead, is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and recently founded ndcq.com, the Not Dead, Can’t Quit“ Social Network. He is CEO of MindLab Media, a proud daddy to two awesome little girls and a lucky husband to a beautiful and wonderful wife.
