ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Coach Zach's vision has always been clear, to help those aiming to better themselves both physically and mentally through coaching and educating. Zach focuses on providing his athletes and clients with training that will go beyond achieving short term goals to maintaining health throughout the course of their lifespans.
Zach adopts the belief that meaningful growth occurs when synergy is created through a simultaneous focus on body and mind. With an active involvement in youth sport and development, Zach has promoted this framework through his experience coaching youth football with the BYFA and RYFL as well as running youth athletic development camps for athletes involved in a wide range of sports. Zach was also the Bishop's University Women's Rugby Strength and Conditioning coach and was able to fine-tune his craft by concurrently performing original research on varsity athletes and jump performance.
In 2020, Zach developed the Brockville Elite 7 on 7 football program which consists of competitive junior and senior varsity teams run by former University players/coaches. This program promotes the development of young athletes through high-quality physical training and a focus on academic success/pursuit of post-secondary opportunities.
In this same year, Zach received the Ben Tekamp Memorial Award 2020, which recognizes outstanding perseverance, dedication, commitment to community and innovation.
His contribution and passion for developing physical/mental health, particularly amongst youth, is exemplified through his collaborative charity Podium 4Life, which raises funds for families seeking to support their children in staying active. By means of his charity, Zach provides both educational and monetary resources for youth, organizing guest lectures and events for the community.
Currently, Zach works with University and aspiring athletes, as well as lifestyle and athletic development clients looking to become the best versions of themselves.
Zach aims to educate his clients with sustainable lifelong practices through the training process while he improves physical performance and overall health.
