Joining See You Later Leaner in 2016 as a competitor, Zack has competed and worked with many individuals within the bodybuilding community. Zack started his fitness journey at a later age than most. Throughout elementary and middle school Zack was known by many as “the fat kid”; spending more time playing video games and watching movies than sports and athletics. Having a complacent lifestyle, paired with his mother's baking and home cooked meals, Zack was not on a healthy path. After transitioning into his second year of high school, there was a shift for Zack's habits due to a single decision, joining the wrestling team.
During his three years as a wrestler Zack shifted from being a follower to a leader, an unhealthy lifestyle to one committed to health and fitness. He went on to being a successful wrestler in his city, winning multiple titles. After graduating high school, Zack studied mathematics and educational leadership, all the while studying and practicing nutrition and training ideologies on himself and clients. While working out at his college gym, Zack met his future wife and nutrition major Katherine, leading him to a lifestyle even more committed to fitness. With Zack’s knowledge about leadership and instruction and Kats nutrition and physical training background, the two grew closer and closer as they found themselves becoming more passionate about bodybuilding and fitness.
Earning a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Mathematics, as well as a Masters in Administration, Zack has been able to apply his skill set as a leader and educator to bodybuilding and coaching. As a leader, Zack’s core values include empathy, grit and teamwork. He has a skill for keeping a calm and collected open mind when working with others and making critical decisions. He values hard work ethic, resilience and perseverance. Zack is passionate about helping those in his community finding success through a shared vision made by an honest collaboration.
To Zack, the skills gained as a competitor and as someone living a healthy lifestyle, transfer to all aspects of life.
As a coach, Zack’s mission is:
“to build capacity within my clients to find a lifestyle that fits their health and fitness goals”
