Driven is a great movie about Mark Dugdale's life and of course his bodybuilding. Its a unique look at what he does for his daily schedule between his family, work, and his professional bodybuilding career. I loved the movie.

If you're looking for a great inside look at professional bodybuilding, Mark Dugdale: Driven will satisfy your need. The DVD takes you through several of Mark's workouts, and delves into Mark's diet. The DVD also features some great insights, in particular, the strain bodybuilding (at this level) can have upon a family. At the end of the DVD, we witness Mark competing at the Iron Man.

I would strongly suggest that you ignore the criticism of Mark's Christian faith. Mark Dugdale is not preachy, and this DVD in no way comes off as a Christian Bible thumping session. I appreciate Mark's devotion to his wife and family, and his faith.

Saying that this is a Christian DVD is just simply wrong. It is a candid look inside the life of a pro bodybuilder. I enjoyed it greatly.

If you enjoy DVDs by Ronnie Coleman, Jay Cutler, Dorian Yates and Kevin Levorne then you will not like this DVD. If you are a fan of boring bodybuilders preaching about Christianity while weight lifting with zero intensity than this is the DVD for you. In the IFBB world you don't hear much about Mark Dugdale but when you watch this DVD you'll see why. He has an awesome physique which is very well proportionate but his personality is booooooooooooooooring! He gets a little preachy in this DVD and that's a big turn off. I didn't buy this DVD to get a church sermon. I can go to church for that. Ronnie Coleman is a very religious man but he never preach his faith to his bodybuilding fans. Mark goes overboard with it.

I also found myself fast forwarding through his workouts. If you want to see Mark REALLY workout then buy "A Week In The Dungeon" where he is being trained by Dorian Yates. That is the only time you will see Mark GET PUMPED! But in this video it's a snoozefest.

The most interesting part of this video was when he and his entire family go to the Mr Olympia competition. Mark wanted to show the viewers that you can be a father, husband and successful bodybuilder at the Mr Olympia Competition. Unfortunately, that's not what happened. I don't want to give the ending away but let's just say that ALL BODYBUILDERS competing for a competition should stay away from children at least one week out. A preventable illness in which he could have avoided caused Mark to suffer in his placing at the "O".

The only great thing about this video is that it is professionally done. Excellent editing and producing. Top notch work but the content leaves much to be desired.

If you are a Mark Dugdale fan and you want to see him at his best without all the Christianity preaching and music then buy "A week in the dungeon". You will thank me later.
