Finding what drives you is key to accomplishing your health and fitness goals. With so many programs available today it can be hard to distinguish exactly what will work for you; and I believe this is where a certified Personal Trainer can help.
Rather than assigning you rigorous regiments and strict diets, I work hand in hand as your coach to find the best method for you to meet your unique goals. That may be through food, exercise, time management, health education or a plethora of other approaches.

About Zac C.

I know from personal experience what it feels like not living your healthiest. Coming from a background plagued with a general lack of regard for physical wellbeing, weighing 275 pounds at the age of 15, I felt like I was constantly struggling; but through a combination of proper nutrition and a dedicated mindset, I found a drive to overcome many challenges.
It's through these challenges that I discovered a passion for bettering myself and helping others to improve their lives through health education, food mindfulness and finding joy in physical activity.
I now have extensive background in athletics, general labor, long distance walking, healthy eating - including attention to allergens and vegan/whole food meals planning.
I am excited about life and wellbeing and am eager to help others find that drive too.

Zac is an outstanding trainer! He is super knowledgeable not only in exercises and nutrition but also the "how" and "why" behind things. I used to be really lazy to be honest but Zac taught me to enjoy getting out and doing things. He worked with me on my goals to change my diet and took me for long walks in the woods on routes that he knows well. He always encourages me to do more but never pushes me to a point of frustration. Not to mention he's really funny and accepting, never making me feel guilty about my vices, just supporting me to do better. I recommend him to anyone wanting to make changes in their diet, shape or physical activities.

Experience

Independent Contractor
Jan 2017 - Present

Self

I’ve been building my independent contracting business for years now, and have found myself doing all kinds of work for an array of people up and down the west coast. Excellent interpersonal skills, time management, attentiveness and client relations all play into my success as an independent contractor. Most often I am tasked to do things physical labor focused, such as assembling furniture or helping people to move home locations, which requires me to not only be energetic and outgoing but to also maintain that energy through potentially rigorous manual labor. I’ve done everything from set up small furniture for families in Washington, to clean commercial bathrooms in Oregon, all the way to assembling full blown wardrobes for people in California. I have spent a lot of time working closely with families in need of my expertise and it has really helped me to hone my craft.

Operations Manager, Dispatcher, Foxtrot
Mar 2015 - Jun 2020

Conscious Crew, Safety Matters Crew

Conscious Crew was a Harm Reduction team for the largest dance music production company in the Pacific Northwest, and as a whole they saw to it that patrons maintained safe practices by working hand in hand with medical professionals. Dealing with potential emergency situations, such as severe dehydration or overdoses, Conscious Crew drastically decreased the chance of life threatening situations simply by providing water and a helpful hand where needed. As an Operations Manager with Conscious Crew I oversaw radio distribution and break schedule enforcing for the largest dance music events in the Pacific Northwest. Team size varied event to event, but for the larger shows like those held at the Gorge Amphitheater, such as Paradiso Festival which garnered around 30,000 people annually, a 300 person strong Crew with upwards of 150 radios meant a lot of management of batteries and constant communication was required. In the Dispatcher role, which I worked at Paradiso Festival as well as Above and Beyond Group Therapy 250, I worked side by side with professional medical dispatchers to weed through the massive amount of radio traffic coming in from our Crew and identify true emergencies. With the sheer amount of people all partying out in the blistering temperatures and being potentially inebriated, it was critical that communication in the trailer was clear and concise, and that no mistakes were made that could negatively effect the response times of the EMT’s in the field. As a Foxtrot I was tasked with being a roaming lead, helping relieve Team Leads for their breaks as well as providing them with radio batteries provided by Operations. Being constantly available to respond to any emergency situations was intrinsic to the role, and the Foxtrot position was critical to the success of the team by keeping communication constantly flowing.
