HI MY NAME IS ZACH

I am a certified strength coach, nutritionist, and personal trainer. Welcome to my site. It is great to have you. A little personal background first, I am a born and raised New Yorker, growing up on 55th between 8th and 9th. I was a competitive athlete for most of my life until injuries, many of them, and the responsibilities of running a business and raising my (awesome) son dictated otherwise. My three greatest passions in life are health, fitness, and teaching and I became a personal trainer because I get to combine all three. As for my professional background, I have coached a wide variety of fantastic clients, but my two areas of specialty are coaching former athletes to regain their fitness and coaching individuals who are new to exercise and healthy eating. As a coach, I take a holistic and scientific approach emphasizing evidenced based research, mastering the fundamentals, and comprehensive care. My coaching style can be summed up as, “push hard, push smart, and have as many laughs as you can along the way.” Away from fitness, I am a big music fan and have been playing the drums since I was eight. I love history, nature, and animals, and I love spending time with my wonderful wife Brittani and my amazing son Mathias.
