    Fitness is the ultimate preventative medicine. I believe true health can be discovered in a gym where one on one or group training pushes you beyond your self envisioned limits.

After a couple years he moved back to Colorado to attend a vocational school for personal training called National Personal Training Institute (NPTI) where he was able to learn the safest, and most effective ways of exercise progression, Corrective exercise, Sport performance, and Functional exercise. Exercise progression is how to safely move a client, in the right guidelines, to effectively get them to their fitness goals quickly as possible. Corrective Exercise is how to access, and correct muscle imbalances from past injuries or repetitive movements to have the body move efficiently. Sport performance gave him the insight on how to train the body for specific movements for their sport to get to the next level of skill. Functional exercise is the base line of his training. Functional exercise trains the body to use less energy throughout the day. With series of different exercises that involve strengthening the muscles your body uses every day to function. 

 After he graduated from NPTI, top three in his class, he became a certified personal trainer under the national certification of NASM. He soon was training a wide range of fitness levels and exercise goals from balance control for the elderly to Figure bodybuilding for the female athlete. He also ran bootcamps for Hellbender Amphibious Bootcamp, a camp that uses navy seal tactical training, that involved land and water for exercise. 

 With such a wide range of experience, Zane will be able to get you where you want to be with Fun, new, and safe ways of exercise!
