Fitness Life-timers' Experience
"I couldn't ask for a better trainer than Zak! He creates intense workouts tailored towards helping me reach my goals. He motivates without yelling and has a way of pushing me to give maximum effort even when I want to give up. Anyone who spends time with Zak will quickly see that he is incredibly knowledgeable about functional fitness and nutrition. He also walks the walk as a CrossFit athlete. Since training with Zak I have reached and passed personal fitness goals. He's given me the confidence to continually set new goals and dream bigger. "
