Zac’s first word was Baseball and has been playing sports since he could walk. Zac got involved in sports medicine in college and continued into graduate school as it was a great way to stay around collegiate sports. He loves the fitness atmosphere and personal training because it is closely related to sports medicine.
Zac’s favorite part of personal training is teaching and learning new exercises. There is always something new to learn in a gym. It’s a great feeling when a client sees the results of training and is enthusiastic to get back in the gym. His background in sports medicine gives him a dual threat of clinical rehabilitation techniques, with sport-specific exercises to increase power, strength, and explosiveness.

Katherine grew up in Green Bay Wisconsin. After high school she left Green Bay and moved to Dortmund, Germany to start school at the university there. In 2005 she moved back to Wisconsin to finish her BA in German studies and music at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay. During her time in Europe, she started studying wine, and upon her return enrolled with the Court Master Sommelier program doing most of her education in Chicago. While the Midwest is beautiful, the winters tend to get long, so I was compelled to continue to study wine and move to California in 2007.
After nearly 9 successful years in the Napa Valley wine business, it was time to make another change, a healthful change. As participants of our modern American culture, we tend to prioritize work over family, and even our health; the balance becomes lost in our lives. Realizing this, was the catalyst for Katherine to get her certifications in Yoga, and Personal training.
Katherine currently works with a multitude of clients ranging from people that need post-rehab exercises, to people that would like to gain muscle and shed some pounds.

Kerry’s philosophy has always been that life is a constant balance. Not just with exercise and nutrition, but all aspects of our lives – jobs, relationships and even social time – just to name a few. All of the nutrition and fitness in the world won’t help us if we are unhappy in other areas of our lives – so living your best life is what is important.
