Marcus Pearce is magnificently obsessed with helping people create their exceptional life.

A former smoking, binge-drinking journalist, radio and television producer, Marcus’s media career included time at Leader newspapers, Sport 927 and SEN 1116 before concluding at Channel Nine and The AFL Footy Show in 2006. 

Amongst writing hundreds of match reports, producing more than 1000 radio shows and dozens of AFL Footy Shows, Marcus also covered major events including the 2004 Athens Olympics, 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games, the 2006 FIFA World Cup and multiple AFL Grand Finals. 

His switch from sports media to health, wellness and personal growth media was seven years in the making.  

In 2005 Marcus met his now-wife Sarah, a chiropractor, who was the catalyst of Marcus’s health transformation from a Red Bull-guzzling, meat-eating smoker to a ginger-tea sipping teetotalling vegan, to somewhere back in the middle. 

Marcus and Sarah spent most of 2006-07 overseas, living in a thatched cottage on 100 acres in Donegal, Ireland whilst running a chiropractic centre together. 

On their return to Australia, Marcus and Sarah moved to Inverloch in Victoria to be closer to family, start a business, get married and have children. In 2008 they opened Pure Wisdom Chiropractic and Lifestyle, were married in 2009 and in 2010 and 2012 welcomed Maya and Darby to the world. 


In 2013 Marcus and Damian Kristof began the podcast 100 Not Out: Mastering The Art of Ageing Well. In that same year, Marcus joined The Wellness Couch podcast network as the Executive Producer of events including The Wellness Summit. Since its inception, 100 Not Out has recorded more than 400 episodes and conversations with some of the planet’s most graceful agers, high achievers and interesting people. 100 Not Out has received almost one million downloads, whilst The Wellness Couch network surpassed 11 million listens in 2020.  


In 2014 Marcus and his family moved to northern New South Wales. With Sarah now a stay-at-home mum, the time had arrived for Marcus to create the Exceptional Life Blueprint framework. He created an online program and began sharing his insights and trainings both digitally and in-person. 

Since then, Marcus’s online courses have been consumed by over 20,000 people in 155 countries and he has delivered keynote presentations and trainings to companies as big as NAB all the way down to local communities. Sectors including banking, health, wellness and real estate trust Marcus to help their teams perform to exceptional standards.

Not long after the birth of third child Tommy in 2016, Marcus and podcast co-host Damian travelled to the Greek island of Ikaria – also known as ‘the island where people forget to die’ – to host the inaugural 100 Not Out Longevity Experience. Outside of pandemics, Marcus and Damian travel annually with a small group of people to experience the magic of Ikaria. 

In 2019 Marcus and Sarah welcomed their fourth child Spencer, and amongst the craziness of raising young children, continue to love and support each other to make the rest of their life the best of their life.
