After stepping away from collegiate baseball, Zach found himself overweight and out of shape. As a broke college student, he knew he needed help getting back in shape and he knew he couldn’t afford it. So he took it upon himself to lose the weight on his own. In the process, he fell in love with fitness and wanted to introduce it to anyone and everyone he could. Zach immediately got certified through ASFA and is currently studying for his NASM certification.
The fitness industry not only provided Zach with the opportunity to help others but also allowed him to replace baseball, his first love, with another passion.
“When I walked away from baseball, I needed something else to run to. The baseball field was my safe haven and without it, I was lost for a little while. I was blessed enough to fall in love with weightlifting shortly after I stepped away from the game and I never looked back. At the beginning of my career as a trainer, I questioned the decision I made to walk away from the game. But once I walked through the doors of Elev8, God reassured me that I was on the right path.”
