Here’s what Coaches are saying about The Underground Strength Coach Cert
Best Career Move I've Ever Made
“I’ve successfully completed the online Underground Strength Training Certification, and it has been the best career move I’ve ever made.
The course was well-written and easy to follow. It has enriched my life in many ways. I used to struggle with programming training sessions for young athletes, as well as my adult clients. I tried to use the razzle-dazzle approach to get that “WOW” factor, however what I learned most is that simple, basic training with hard work and motivation yields greater results. I’ve see tremendous improvements in my client’s progress.
If there’s one message I can convey to trainers/coaches: Sign up for this course and get certified. The knowledge that Zach shares is immeasurable. It will change your life, your client’s lives, and enhance your business.
Thank you Zach Even-Esh. Keep motivating and inspiring us!”
Well Worth The Investment In Your Own Career
"Zach has been a great friend for many years, but I first knew him as a mentor from afar. Zach is one of the first coaches to start sharing his information online. For nearly three decades Zach has been coaching, operating and teaching at a high level. He has coached novice and elite athletes, owned and operated a successful gym business, and contributed a tremendous amount of S&C knowledge through speaking and writing. His certification is a collection of his life's work, and no doubt will be extremely insightful. Any opportunity to learn from someone that has been successful for as long as he has in this game is well worth the investment in your own career"
Ron McKeefery, M.A, MSCC, RSCC*E
Turning Point In My Career
"Going to the Underground Strength Coach Certification was a turning point in my career as both a coach and a business owner. Zach’s knowledge, passion, humility and authenticity blew me away and showed me what kind of coach and leader I wanted to be."
When It Comes To Old Shool Training... Zach Has A Lock On It
"I am excited for the next generation of athletes knowing that Zach has rebooted the Underground Strength Certification online course. When it comes to old school training and old methods, Zach has a lock on it because he comes from the oldest school on earth - hard work. And that has been around longer than Oxford - and that is pretty damn old."
Lots of Practical, Immediately Implementable Material
"I've been following Zach for about 6 years. The first year I followed him his material was so impressive I decided to take his Underground Strength Coach Certification course. The certification was more than I hoped it would be. Very hands on, with lots of practical, immediately implementable material for both the coaching and business side of running your own strength and conditioning studio.
The only thing that matters is RESULTS and Zach's USC Cert will deliver. Take the certification and build your business while "building Hammers" as Zach says. I've been using what Zach taught for the last 5 years and my clients are the benefactors. I highly recommend the Underground Strength Coach Certification."
You Won't Regret Becoming One Of Us
"Having Zach as a mentor has helped me beyond words. The Underground Strength Coach certification is a life changing experience. It's not just about the gym. I've become a better business owner, coach, mentor, even a better husband and father. All because of my time with Zach & the Underground. You won't regret becoming one of us."
You & Your Business Will Grow Exponentially
"You’d be a fool not to take the opportunity to attend the Underground Strength Coach Certification. Zach delivers a ton of information in a way that is easily understood and can be executed on immediately. You and Your business will grow exponentially."
My Future Path Shifted Drastically
"When I attended the Underground Strength Certification program, my future path shifted drastically as my new truth became clear. Immediately, I knew that I didn’t need to spend thousands of dollars on or fret about expensive online certification tests in order to become an excellent coach.
Instead, I learned that I needed a hands-on training environment and access to a challenging atmosphere to push my own boundaries and learn how to take charge of a group. I learned how to create a safe place for my athletes to test their own boundaries.
Zach has taught me many lessons about the fitness industry. Highlights include coaching groups, standards of movement, how to go about athlete attitude adjustments, coaching cues and more, all while having fun doing it.
For me, the most important lessons have been personal.

What Happens After You Pass The USC Exam?
Once you've passed your Online USC Cert Exam, you will have the opportunity to register for a LIVE USC Cert.
We are NOT handing out Certifications to people who think they can become GREAT Coaches by hiding behind their computers.
That is called SELLING OUT.
The Underground Strength Coach Brand is NOT meant to be the most popular brand. That means we are for everyone and the truth is, we are NOT for the majority.
People who think they are "good enough" do not align with our philosophy. Good Enough is the Death of Greatness.
There's a reason why I've been hired to Coach D1 Teams, consult with Naval Special Warfare AND successfully been operating The Underground Strength Gym since 2002. Success is NO accident.
We are NOT Watering Down our Brand & Offering You a Certification After You Watch Videos & Pass Your Exam Like the Majority.
We Want Coaches Who TRULY Want to be the BEST & That Means Coming to The Underground & Immersing Yourself in What We Do!
You must "Get Under the Bar" and experience it for yourself and prove it to me. Just like we expect of our athletes, YOU MUST EARN IT.
You do NOT have to attend a Live USC Cert but if you want Greatness, then you will find a way to make it happen while others find excuses.
During the Live USC Cert you will:
- Go through training sessions, hands on coaching & experience to truly understand the how, what, why, when and where of The Underground Strength Gym.
- You will be evaluated on your ability to perform AND coach the exercises, so, you MUST show up READY. If you are not ready then there is NO guarantee you will pass and become a CUSC.
- The LIVE Cert will be intense and in depth, giving you a deep dive into the inner workings of training, culture and business at The Underground Strength Gym.
- The Underground Strength Gym has been building BEASTS since 2002. How many other Certifications also have Coaches running successful gyms? This is NOT theory, this is a practical application of both training and business.
- Day 2 of the Live USC Cert will be training session in the morning, business the remainder of the day.
When Other Coaches Talk S**t About The Underground, I Always Say, I'll Pit our Athletes Against Their Athletes ANY DAY & We Will Kick A**.
