Zach’s Having a Birthday Party

Zach’s Having a Birthday Party

I’ve been coaching since Cindy Lauper’s heyday. During this time I’ve been exposed to every type of personality at every level. I’ve prepped action stars for big films, trained NBA, MLS, and Olympic level athletes.  As driven as all of these people are I’ve never coached anybody quite like Zach Goren.

In fact, of all the amazing people I’ve coached or trained Zach stands out. Not just because of his intelligence and authentic humility, but because of his will, perseverance and dedication.  There are many things I love about this man – at the top of this list is GRIT. Trust me when I say this, everything he has gained he has earned the hard way.  As his coach I can tell you he’s not that talented. But what he lacks in talent he makes up in effort.  As coach (or parent for that matter) you start to realize that results are one thing, effort is another.  I know many at the gym are amazed at what Zach can do physically and although that’s impressive it simply doesn’t hold a candle to what really matters – effort. Zach has always given me, the community and himself nothing but all out effort. I find this to be universally admirable.

This weekend we get to celebrate this dear friend the only appropriate way he could possibly party: 30 workouts in 30 hours!  Sign up here or just turn up to show some love and have some “Quality” food from the grill of John Bonds himself!
