“Zack’s Strongman Seminar was by far the most educational, hands-on, and eye-opening Seminar I have been to. I’ve attended many weightlifting, mobility, and Strongman seminars, but none of them have really compared to the way Zack teaches/coaches. His ability to word and teach to any individual, shows he can help and improve an athlete at any level. After his seminar(and even during), I found myself hitting PR’s on stones, log, continental clean and Press, as well as the dreaded circus dumbbell. Even the smallest cues can make a WORLD of difference. 10/10 I would highly recommend this seminar to athletes of all levels of experience/fitness, regardless of what sport you’re in.”

“When I attended the strongman technique seminar Zack showed why he is a world champion. He analyzes and breaks down each movement and shares the subtle nuances of each event. Most folks running seminars/clinics aren’t willing to give away their personal tiny secrets that make the most difference. He is completely invested in making you the best he can within the time constraints. He allows time for one on one hands on coaching by not over booking the clinic for profit at the athletes expense. I greatly appreciate Zack’s willingness and commitment to enhancing the strength community through education. Would 100% recommend to anyone looking to become a better strength athlete.”

“Zack’s seminar really helped us as gym owners and coaches feel confident performing and teaching Strongman movements. It added a new dimension to our gym persona and programming that sets us apart from others. Our clients have developed an appreciation for the challenging nature and practicality that comes from incorporating odd objects into training and the short, intense efforts that leave them feeling empowered and strong. Zack was really the catalyst in this evolution and we can’t say enough about him as a world class athlete and coach, and all around terrific person.”

“Zack is a great coach – highly technical, thorough, and engaging. The seminar I attended was well organized and ran on a timely schedule (a rarity for most workshops). We covered log, axle, circus dumbbell, yoke, and stones. Zack made sure that each attendee got one-on-one attention in addition to the group explanation (which was also great). I walked away with practical knowledge that I could immediately apply to all my events. Zack didn’t just talk events, though, he also took us through bonus mobility work (another rarity in strongman), and gave us two hours for Q&A. I thought we’d race through it and be done in a half hour, but we ended up using the full two hours!

Zack also made himself available via email and Facebook after the seminar, which I also found really helpful. I was able to follow up on some of the finer technique points he gave us in the seminar as I applied them, which was tremendously helpful.

If you have the chance, I strongly recommend attending one of Zack’s seminars. He’s a world class strongman, fantastic technical coach, and a great guy.”
