As the"Texas Road Race State Champion" and a frequent overall podium finisher and consistent age group winner in 2013/14 Duathlon and Triathlon races, Spin has always been a significant part of his training and enjoyment of cycling.
Music has also held a prominent role: Zach grew up playing drums and experienced being a percussionist in various bands, traveling the US and recording.

Additionally, teaching continues to be a theme that has played out in fitness as well as community.

These experiences and passions have come together in his career as a fitness instructor. Zach began teaching Spin in 1999 and continues to enjoy it today. He loves making mixes and sharing music, workouts and energy. At this point, Zach is focused on Group Fitness, surfing, and having his creative itch scratched by making mixes and routines for classes. The introduction of video into his classes has him psyched, and he is excited to share this underutilized and new school element at Cycology. Zach's older sister Juli is a consistent inspiration for him, and races Ironman for Team Timex out of Austin.
