Biography

Zack has always been involved in competitive athletics as long as he can remember. While attending Xavier High School, he ran 2 years of varsity track as a sprinter and played 4 years of baseball while achieving all state honors and captain honors as a senior. Zack went on to play collegiate baseball: a year at Umass Amherst and 3 years at Eastern Connecticut State University in which he was granted the opportunity to play in the College World Series for 2 years in a row. During summer breaks throughout college, he played on collegiate baseball leagues traveling around the United States. Zack graduated from ECSU with a B.S. In health and physical education and minor in exercise science.

After college, a hand injury ended a possible season at the independent level of baseball. Still with the need for knowledge of exercise science, Zack pursued a year-long intensive internship program as a Performance Specialist at Athletes Performance (professional strength and conditioning company) in Tempe, Arizona. While in Arizona, Zack assisted in the stretching, prehabbing, rehabbing, and strength training of professional athletes.

Zack has over 7 years of personal training experience and 8 years of high school/legion baseball coaching. Zack currently works in the Department of Correction for the State of Connecticut as a Recreational Supervisor. Zack brings his passion for fitness to Midcoast Crossfit with enthusiasm and a smile, finding great pleasure in helping and motivating athletes to achieve their health and wellness goals.
