TESTIMONIALS

I had the pleasure of working with Zack in a small specialized group setting. He led a medical weight loss / wellness group for six months, meeting 2-3 times a week. Not too many people like exercising, myself included, but he kept the group motivated, and the exercises diversified enough to avoid boredom (not only cardio, but strength training, and pool). He was also quite charming during the classes (he loves animals!), while preferring to keep the focus on us and the exercise program. We all took body composition tests on a medical machine before, during, and after completing this program and was amazed to see the gain in actual muscle weight, yet, while still dropping overall (fat) weight. Zack also had EMS training which I thought was extremely valuable in his profession. I would absolutely recommend Zack for your fitness needs.

I’ve been working with Zack for 7 years now and have had great results. I have a chronic health condition and he is always aware of the potential issues and how to address any physical limitations that I might have. Zack views exercise as a team effort, listening and adjusting the program as necessary to keep you engaged and moving forward. Unlike some other exercise professionals I have worked with, it is not about Zack and his results, it is about you, as the customer and what you want to achieve. I have made a great deal of progress with Zack and am toned, strong and fit, all of which I would not be if I had not continued with the program. I highly recommend Zack. He is easy to work with, educated and perhaps most important of all, a good, honest person. I’m thankful to have him on my team.

TESTIMONIALS

I worked with Zack for about a year or so – he devised a strategic plan that was carefully crafted to favor my strengths and needs that helped me build muscle and trim excess fat. Zack has a pantheon of knowledge, stemming from various certifications that he’s studied for, and skills that he brings to the table as an instructor. A great example of his knowledge and skills would be when I informed Zack that I wasn’t a huge fan of on-land cardio – adhering to my preferences, Zack devised an in-water cardio plan with the help of water weights incorporating some elements from HIIT. All that being said, the most important attributes that Zack brings to the table as an instructor is his phenomenal ability to communicate and be personable. I highly recommend Zack to anyone that needs a carefully curated exercise plan, and a friend to talk you through your journey for a healthier lifestyle!

Having trained with Zack on a 1:1 basis has been nothing short of a positive experience. Zack has helped me bring my personal fitness goals (weight loss and overall toning) to fruition. Using his vast knowledge of fitness disciplines and his encouraging work ethic, Zack developed an individualized plan with me that complimented my existing lap swimming regiment with weight training, TRX, and aquatic-based resistance training which were all frankly foreign to me and was initially hesitant. Notably, one of Zack’s most commendable attributes is his patience; if I ever felt frustrated with a specific routine by not getting the exact movement correct, Zack was always willing to spend extra time and give me tips to teach me proper and safe form. With Zack’s assistance, I was not only able to attain my weight loss goal, but also stayed motivated throughout my entire journey and have developed healthier lifestyle habits along the way.
