Zach runs the group training program at Atlas Fit. Zach knew personal training was his life’s calling at a very young age, receiving his first certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine at the age of eighteen. Zach was the youngest trainer to earn the Poliquin Biosignature modulation certification at nineteen years old. Since then, he has completed BioPrint certification with Charles Poliquin, a Strength and Hypertrophy specialty seminar with Wolfgang Unsold, and the golf industry’s Titleist Performance Institute Level 1.
Zach specializes in advanced body composition using an approach that not only leads to fat loss and muscle gain, but simultaneously improves overall health and wellbeing. Zach is able to consistently achieve results with clients by focusing on many different aspects of health and wellness including lifestyle factors, customized nutrition, resistance training, and supplementation. One of the most essential elements of achieving goals is sustainability of results; that is, if something is not sustainable, a client won’t stick to it. Zach designs programs to be as sustainable as possible, by which he instills habits rather than providing a quick fix.
