Zach is an experienced blogger and personal trainer. He served in Army infantry, during which time he deployed in support of OEF and OIF.
After the military he pursued a M.S. in nutrition and immunology as well as a Master’s in Public Health, both from the University of California, Davis. There he studied the relationships between gut bacteria, diet, and immune function.
Zach became a CPT shortly after to help bridge the gap in knowledge between formal nutrition and practical fitness. He currently works in clinical research and trains individuals and small groups at the YMCA.
He prefers to focus on beginner fitness enthusiasts, traditional strength training, and endurance performance.
