Virginia Beach's Expert in Longevity Based Strength Training, Offering Local & Online Coaching for Transformative Results


  • Look confidently in the mirror at your leaner, stronger, more muscular, and defined body as you learn my longevity based strength training protocols.


  • Eliminate aches and pains so you'll move and feel better than you ever have before through smart workouts, mobility drills and flexibility training.


  • Eat in a realistic, flexible way.  Fad diets are lame.  Learn how to properly weigh, track, and manipulate your calories to eat in a way that will make you feel great, compliment your workouts, and still allow the food and drinks you love.


  • Improve your cardiovascular and heart health.  Strategically planned cardio sessions will improve multiple health markers and give you the ability to do activities you enjoy.


  • Be in a better mood and improve mental health.  Getting leaner, building muscle, and improving sleep and stress levels will positively impact your mood, sex drive, and energy levels. There are so many benefits besides the physical ones!

"My life has been forever changed by Zack and VBA Fitness! I started this journey thinking I would work with him for a few months and then go back to my previous routines, but with less body fat. However, as I progressed through his ever challenging programs I came to enjoy the positive changes that living a healthy life brings...I have more energy, I have more mental strength, and greater resilience during periods of increased stress in my life. I am more confident and have more energy too!

One of the most powerful changes, has been seeing my children's reaction to their father completely change his unhealthy lifestyle. This has been such an important part of the journey, coming to understand that we are not defined by our poor life choices but defined by our ability to recognize and change our circumstances. I would have said my transformation was impossible 12 months ago, but I was willing to take one make one change. Then I took another step, and another, and I slowly built momentum. Until I ultimately realized I enjoy this new me and don't want to go back to my old ways! The new me is healthy, happy, confident, resilient, driven, and a positive role model for my family!"

"Zack is an awesome trainer! He is very knowledgeable, professional and creates a workout plan specific to your individual goals and needs. One of the things that I like most is that he takes a holistic approach to fitness and does not just focus on the gym/working out/weightlifting aspect of it. There are other important aspects that tend to get lost by some trainers such as nutrition and getting the right amount of sleep.

He is great at finding the perfect balance between challenging and motivating you to work out and give it your all, but without overdoing it and pushing things to the extreme. He has a very down to earth/realistic approach to helping you succeed. Zack will keep you engaged in achieving your fitness goals both inside and outside of the gym and has a ton of useful online materials, videos, and resources that he has created personally.

It had been a very long time since I had done any weightlifting or even seen the inside of a gym, so I was a bit nervous and hesitant initially. But from the moment I met Zack – he made me feel very comfortable and put my mind at ease. I have seen dramatic changes in my body and energy level, since working with Zack as my trainer. I would highly recommend Zack if you’re looking for a personal trainer."

"I have been training with Zack for about 4 months now. It has been a life-changing experience for me. He makes the workouts super fun and super easy; and tailors the workouts based on your goals. Not only that, but he will also give you knowledge on nutrition so you can go about your fitness journey in a holistic manner. In my opinion, a holistic approach is the most important factor when you are trying to reach your fitness goals. We talk about life/experiences and share a laugh while working out, he is very easy to get along with. I will recommend Zack to everyone who is looking for a personal trainer."
