I am often asked the same questions by Strength Coaches struggling to help their athletes as well as parents struggling to help their child gain lean muscle, healthy weight and overall perform great.
My goal..... My BIG GOAL is to change the way training is implemented in schools.
Right now the Success of the athletes at The Underground Strength Gym has been tremendous (by those who follow through and have supportive parents).
There are plenty of coaches out there who copy from my gym web site but a nice web site doesn't create amazing results that change lives.
As a Coach, it's about the kids and one day, I will get into the schools and have Coaches on board and sports training / physical education curriculum revamped.
Until then, I will share my knowledge and passion with those who want it!
The struggles of today's athlete are not unique and special just to 1 athlete, they are common among he majority:
- Unable to build muscle
- Not gaining weight / undersized / leads parents to hold child back until he gains size to compete safely in their chosen sport
- Excess injuries due to poor training methods, weak muscles, tendons, ligaments and over-specialization in sports
- Coaches unable to motivate and most of all, LEAD athletes to become leaders themselves
I answer these common questions, struggles and the confusion below.
Please share with coaches / parents who would value this information and put it to use!

Zach, thank you for this article, and all the others. This one is close to my heart, because I want to see kids excel, and be positive productive citizens who can take care of themselves with the best information. I pray that if it is God’s will , I get the opportunity to meet and discuss how this can be done on a large scale, and train with you. God Bless.

George we are limited by our own imagination and of course, our work ethic.
I will find a way (it’s in the works) to implement The STRONG Life Training System into schools.
We will blend mind and body to build excellence in academics, athletics and social life.
It’s not enough to JUST be great in 1 area. Excellence does NOT discriminate, hence The STRONG Life vs just the STRONG athlete!
