Hey! I'm Zach, the owner/trainer here at Safari Strength LLC. I'm currently 27 years old. Father to the wildest 2 boys. Husband to my rock, Krys. 

In 2018 I enrolled with the National Academy of Sports Medicine to become a Certified Personal Trainer, specializing in Fitness Nutrition, Corrective Exercise, and most recently Sports Performance. 

Most people know me as an avid skateboarder from the Midwest. Born in Hannibal, Mo. Traveling for skate trips had me curious to explore the land.

In 2017 we sold most of our belongings and moved to Chaffee County, Colorado. Originally living in a camper behind Mt. Shavano (14,229'). That fall, we moved up the Valley, closer to Mt. Princeton (14,197'). Where we started our family the following year.

In 2019 we moved back to Missouri, to help with the family business.

Fun Fact: I've climbed 4/54 14ers in Colorado. Pictured here is Paisley and I. Taken by Krys, on Mount Antero (14,275'). Our first 14er, and only one we camped at summit.
